NEW ! Tension Fabric Pop Up Stand

The NEW Embrace Tension fabric pop up display stand is a new innovative fabric pop up system with its unique design offering a sleek, collapsible display that delivers style and substance with minimal effort.

The Embrace is a pop up frame featuring a new push fit bar system that creates an external channel around all four edges of the frame. When erected it provides a fitting point for the Graphics Panel. The Display Polyester graphic is a Silicon Edged Graphic, which push fits into the edging channel to provide a drum tight display front and sides.

The system can be supplied as a double sided display stand too!

You can also join frames together using one of our special joining clamp components. We recommended minimum 2 per join, ideally 3 are required and they come as 90 or 180 degree (straight) joints.

The frames are sold as complete kits, and supplied in a wheeled bag, with a frame, bars for single sided use and a pair of stabilizing feet. Please note we carry stock of spare nodes, locking arms, bars, feet and frames which are unique to this product.

Lights can be added directly onto the top node without the need for additional light fittings, suitable lights are the PS1000/PS1060/LED Flood & LED strip.

Creating Walls with EverBlock Building Blocks

modular walls with everblock

EverBlock modular building blocks is the ideal solution for creating walls, room dividers, office partitions and much more. Open spaces can be easily reconfigured, making it a versatile and fun way to divide a room or create an enclosure.

The size and scale of walls with EverBlock is up to you but maximum height restrictions are advised on large walls and backdrops. As walls get taller, they require additional stabilisation and support, so there are several methods that can be used to provide additional stability. But choosing a wall width that is suited to the height of the wall won’t always require additional reinforcement.
Support a freestanding wall

For free standing walls, to create extra stability in the design it is good to consider putting a 90 degree “L” at the origin, or termination of the wall, or adding a “T” at the end of the wall. It is also possible to add a protrusion or column in the middle of the wall for additional stability over longer runs.

For walls with EverBlock over 8ft long it is recommended to use a buttress of some type to provide additional stabilisation. This can be a simple stabilising flare out of the wall, or a complete wall extension. Adding an “L” or “T” in the design will greatly enhance the stability of your wall. For long or tall wall areas or for load-bearing construction, it is important to insert a reinforcing steel bar or rods into the EverBlock cable channels for additional stability.
Anchor your wall

When building a freestanding wall it is often useful to reinforce or anchor the freestanding wall to an adjacent fixed wall. This can be achieved using either an angle channel along the entire length of the wall or angle brackets placed at various points on the wall. walls with Everblock
Illuminate your wall

To create a visual impact with your EverBlock wall consider illuminating the blocks. This can simply be done with the translucent blocks by inserting LED lighting cables through the blocks. Using a flat style 0.5” LED lighting cables, with no wide end caps or couplings, the strip can be threaded through the EverBlock cable channels simply.

Everblock is so versatile that you can leave openings for doors, windows, light, or air flow and build in shelving and other elements as needed with your wall. And the fun thing with EverBlock is that if you no longer need a wall, you can easily move it and build something else in its place.wall partitioning with EverBlock

If you want to send us your measurements for your wall, partition or room divider, we can calculate the number of blocks needs to complete your project. Alternatively using a formula will allow you to calculate the exact number of modular blocks you will need for your wall. Complete the EverBlock UK design form and email back to us.

Lead Management at Exhibitions & Trade Shows

The lead management process is key to your exhibition success. So we’ve come up with some tips on gathering leads at your next event.

  • Clearly define objectives before you attend and set appropriate goals and targets
  • Know the attendee demographics, and go after the leads that best fit your product for the event.
  • When chatting to customers, identify what information about each visitor will you need to make an effective follow up call
  • Don’t engage every visitor to the stand in long conversation. Use the right qualifying questions to target the right leads
  • Use tablets to capture data. Lots of handwritten notes are labour intensive to transfer digitally at a later date.
  • Get complete details on any interest shown including email address, phone numbers and social media contacts. Every manual step involved in processing the lead decreases the odds of it being followed up.

Recording your data allows you to analyse your overall performance and the success of the attending the show. If one of your exhibiting objectives is lead gathering, then divide the number of leads into the total cost of exhibiting to achieve a cost per lead measurement.

Ensure that you follow up any leads quickly – otherwise all the outlay was a waste of time. Be creative and identify what you need to do to nudge prospects further along the sales pipeline and focus on that.

Exhibiting at Agricultural Shows and Events 2014/15

November was a busy month for Agricultural Industry Exhibitions with:

  • UK Grain 2014
  • Midlands Machinery Show
  • Croptec 2014
  • Agri Scot 2014
  • Agromec

Looking ahead to the Royal Welsh Show in December and Lamma 2015 in January, attendance at these shows is on the rise. The Association of Show & Agricultural Organisations ASAO reports:

“VISITORS TO SHOWS – six million people visit agricultural and country shows in the UK annually – that’s about 10% of the population.”

Exhibiting at Outdoor Agricultural Events takes planning and preparation, but as many SMEs have found can yield great results on their investment.

Exhibition equipment such as Modular display stands are a popular choice for exhibitors as they are one of the most versatile and flexible options for year on year exhibiting. Easily adapted for different size spaces, they provide an effective marketing option for indoor spaces.

Outdoor display equipment is usually the prime focus for many of the agricultural shows and events. Outdoor display banners, flags and branded marquees are essential to promote your brand effectively.

Branded event tents are a good way to welcome visitors to chat and interact with staff and ensure protection from the weather. These modular event tents are also flexible options for outdoor exhibiting as additional modules can be added and the branding can be interchanged depending on which show a company is attending.

POD Exhibitions has been supporting the agricultural industry show and events for many years. We’ve  developed a range of Modular Exhibition Stands suitable for all types of trade shows and exhibitions.

We’ve recently launched the POD Event Tent,  specifically designed for outdoor shows and events as a unique outdoor space for hard standing and grass surfaces.

How to maximise floor space on your Exhibition Stand?

Choose a system that allows you to get the most out of your valuable floor space. Esetta Shell Scheme Pro is one of the best systems to achieve this.

space-savingTake for example a 3×2 shell scheme at a popular exhibition venue. With average costs of £400 per sq metre, using as small a percentage of the shell scheme floor as possible is essential to maximise your return on investment.

Esetta uses just 4% of the shell scheme floor area and gives you 12sqm of graphic area for advertising.

Compare this to a 3×4 Pop Up Stand in the same area, and it takes us 35% of the floor area, giving you only 9sqm.

The square foot print of your stand can be used to great effect with Esetta Shell Scheme Pro as the exhibition hardware does not encroach into the stand space. This allows for more visitors onto the stand or for the integration of storage cupboards, counters and light boxes into your design, and wasted floor space is kept to a minimum. This can all simply be obtained with our Esetta Shell Scheme Pro modular displays

The benefits of cladding with Esetta Shell Scheme Pro:

DIY – The systems are simple to self build, saving you money on installation fees. The shell scheme Pro package is essentially a kit in a box. With use of the comprehensive installation guide, you can erect the system easily into your shell scheme.

Bespoke Look Achieved – The overall look of the stand has a professional, bespoke look and feel that is difficult to achieve with other self build modular stands. The inclusion of custom elements into the stand, gives the appearance of a bespoke design.

Unrestricted Artwork Design – The fabric graphics can be used to create large seamless graphic walls, not restricting the design of your artwork for each panel.

Maximum Graphic Area – A basic shell scheme package is a blank canvas. Using shell scheme graphics for advertising and branding over the entire height and width of the shell scheme panels will ensure that you don’t just blend in with every other exhibitor at the venue.

Its also adaptable for space only stands by simply adding feet, so it highly versatile. Take a look at the possibilities to upscale Esetta here

Why not utilise your floor space to the maximum with Esetta Shell Scheme Pro. Talk to the sales team on 01933 411159 for more details.
