Truss is a versatile trade show exhibit solution, and we like taking it to the next level by attaching branded arched media walls.

Truss & Pop-Up Tent Activation

Don't limit pop-up tents to just outdoor events. If you have approved height clearances, combining canopy tents with solutions like truss structures, is a great way to stand out and highlight your brand.

Custom truss structures also work great for smaller-sized trade show footprints. This example for GoPro includes wrapped truss, a custom-printed backdrop, and a custom-printed table.

Pop-Up Lounge for Trade Shows

Our team of engineer and designers combined two MONARCHSTOREFRONT pop-up tents to create an exhibition that is more "lounge" than "trade show booth."

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much does it cost to build a custom trade show exhibit?

  • The final cost to build a custom trade show exhibit depends on your overall project's size and scope (amount of printing, materials, shipping location, etc.) Most TentCraft. customers who are investing in large trade show buildouts typically pay more than $7,500 for their activation.

  • Can TentCraft trade show exhibit solutions be used more than once?

  • Yes, our trade show solutions are designed for lifetime use, and many solutions include a lifetime warranty.

  • How fast can TentCraft turn around my custom trade show exhibt?

  • TentCraft can typically turn around your custom trade show exhibit in three to five business days. That's because we manufacture and custom-print all of our trade show solutions in the United States and operate under a build-to-order model.

  • How long does it take to set up a custom trade show exhibit?

  • The overall size and level of customization dictates how long it takes to set up your trade show exhibit. A setup, for example, that uses a pop-up tent and event backdrops can typically be set up in 10-15 minutes. An activation using truss, custom walls, and multiple tables, however, is going to take much longer — at least 45-60 minutes.

  • Can you use a custom trade show exhibits indoors and outdoors?

  • Some elements of your custom trade show exhibit can be used indoors and outdoors.

    A pop-up canopy tent, for instance, can easily be used indoors and outdoors because there are ways to anchor it against high winds.

    Other elements, like media walls and SEG, aren't designed for outdoor use because they don't cooperate with high winds.

    Reach out to our team if you have questions about specific event solutions for outdoor or indoor use.
