The average attendee can get easily lost in a convention’s sea of busy graphics. Enter the hanging sign: floating calmly like a cloud on a summer’s day. It easily signals attendees to your location from a distance much like a lighthouse does for incoming ships. It is the unstoppable force when it comes to visibility and standing out from the crowd.
And just like Goliath, it does not come without certain advantages and disadvantages, the latter of which we will discuss first.
Convention labor costs can pile when it comes to rigging your hanging sign. Some conventions may offer a discount for peninsula and island booths, however rigging always incurs a cost for installation AND dismantling. A rough idea for the larger conventions: $1,000 for rigging installation and another $1,000 for dismantling the sign after the show is finished.
Ease of Use.
Hanging signs normally use a stretched printed fabric over a lightweight aluminum tube frame. The printed fabric can always be changed out for a new design, perfect if you need to cater a message to a particular show or update your logo or graphics. Graphics can be printed on the inside and outside of the signage to provide multiple viewing angles. The frame itself breaks down into smaller sections making it easy to pack and is literally a snap to re-assemble.
Hanging signs are only limited by your imagination. Any shape, size, color, graphics, lighting, and rotation can be used to customize the sign to your desire. Below is the breakdown for common signage.
