The Light Stuff
Display Supply & Lighting Inc.'s LED Strands make it easy to add accent illumination to challenging exhibit areas, including curved elements, cubbies, narrow display shelves, etc. LED Strands come in sets of 10 individual segments, each of which is approximately 11 inches long and comprises flexible cording and two LED nodes. Up to 20 strands can be connected and powered from a single electrical source, allowing exhibitors to create more than 18 linear feet of plug-and-play lighting that showcases key products, installs easily in confined spaces, and works around multiple corners.

Pop Star
The Reverb backlit display from Expo-Displays is a no-fuss, easy-to-install medium for creating a professional show-floor presence. Its 9.75-foot-wide and roughly 7.25-foot-tall pop-up frame assembles in minutes and houses an expansive curtain of LED lights for even illumination of your custom single-sided silicone-edge graphics. Each kit comes with a lightweight, wheeled canvas bag for storage and shipping, although hard plastic containers are available for exhibitors who want to ensure the longevity of their investments. Additional accessories include a coordinating SEG podium (with a width and height of approximately 3.25 feet), stabilizing feet, LED arm lights, and a sturdy monitor bracket to add digital content to your show-floor display. Contact: ExpoDisplays, Birmingham, AL, 800-747-3976, www.expodisplays.com
Bag Check
Distributing branded bags is a ubiquitous tactic exhibitors use to spread their corporate messaging beyond the confines of the trade show floor. However, the vast majority of these giveaways are either too bulky to be practical or too garish to result in frequent use among attendees. Marco Promotional Products Inc.'s line of Washable Kraft Paper Shopper Totes are neutral enough to serve as everyday accessories, and their generously sized imprint areas allow for impactful, full-color branding on one or both sides. Available in six sizes ranging from a narrow wine tote to a 13-inch-wide, 15-inch-tall shopper with 8-inch gusseted sides, each bag features contoured nylon-web handles for easy carrying and is made from durable, machine-washable kraft paper.

Checking In
Exhibit managers who also coordinate their companies' user group conferences, private trade shows, and other corporate events know that the on-site registration process leaves an important initial impression on attendees. Reg Stands registration units from Convention Data Services Inc. makes this process fast and easy, thanks to the addition of a magstripe reader for running credit cards and a laser scanner capable of recognizing barcodes and Quick Response codes on both paper printouts and attendees' mobile devices. The units' embedded 11.6-inch tablets feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities (tablets can also be hardwired to an on-site network) and a customizable software program that allows attendees to check themselves in to an event, complete their personalized event schedules, and more. The fronts of the units also accommodate vinyl-cling graphics for an additional branding opportunity. Contact: Convention Data Services Inc., Bourne, MA, 800-548-9299, www.cdsreg.com
