Portable displays featuring a frame (usually made of tubular aluminum connected in a scissors configuration) that allows it to easily expand open. Generally, plastic clips or magnets keep the structure open while displaying. Panels and/or graphics that feature a company’s information are designed to hang from the face of the pop-up display. Examples include the Pop Up Magnetic and Soft Image.
Small, lightweight, portable displays featuring a graphic panel that unfurls from its own base, much like a window shade. The top of the graphic panel is attached to a horizontal aluminum bar, which hooks or clips onto a pole that rests in the base. Examples include the Roll Up Classic and the Roll Up Pro.
A combination of displays and accessories comprising everything a company needs for a finished presence at a tradeshow.

Other accessories, such as brochure racks, may also be included.
A lightweight and portable hardware system that allows the user to display a freestanding banner, eliminating the need for grommets, overhead cables, pole-pockets, etc. They are more portable than a rigid board on an easel. Banner stands are similar to the retractable stands, but the banner itself must be manually rolled up. Examples include the Pole System and 4 Screen.
Portable displays with pockets for fliers and/or brochures, which collapse, fold or roll up for easy transportation. Different racks can be made of nylon mesh, metal or polycarbonate. Most are used as-is, while some offer the option of personalizing with your company logo. Examples include the Brochure Stand and 4 Brochure.

A hard molded plastic case (normally with wheels, a handle and latches for the lid) used for transporting or shipping a display and several accessories to and from tradeshows.

With an appropriate covering (i.e., podium wrap and/or countertop), it can also be used in your booth as a podium for literature or a laptop. Examples include the podium convertible and the Economy Podium Case.
A display used as a larger-scale counter or podium in a tradeshow booth, which may or may not also function as a shipping or storage case. An example is the Trade Show Counters & Podiums.
