    Default Indoor booth setups / Poster Displays

    Tried digging around for the right threads, sorry if this is a repeat... Does anyone have good ideas for indoor booth setups?

    Last time around I had big cardboard sheets that I propped together, but it made the booth space (8x10) pretty dark and I was afraid of it falling over. I'm not sure yet whether I'll be on a carpeted surface are hard floor. I know they'll be room for tables too. I was thinking of potentially creating some kind of frame out of PVC pipes to hang/suspend poster rows from... but it's just a rough thought.

    Any good indoor booth setup / poster display advice?

    are you talking about a one-time set up or something that you can use over and over? might help some people answer your question.

    Ah, good call. Something that I could use over and over would be ideal. This is for a one day show, so set up and tear down are important to be fairly simple.

    Get your self a pop-up canopy...

    wrap 3 sides in some of that orange netting and use some clothes pins to hold your posters on.

    I highly recommend doing your research on the pop-up tents... many end-up being single use because they suck so bad.

    Nate Duval has been using another alternative to the netting. I want to check that out.

    Point taken. My parents have a higher end Eureka pop-up tent that while expensive at the time has lasted them 20 years of summer use.

    This one is pretty nice and it looks like you wouldn't have to have the top on for an indoor event.

    We have a bunch of 2' PVC we use for indoor events. What's awesome about it is that you can configure it to whatever space you get. Sometimes you get a narrow space but can take advantage of high ceilings, sometimes you get a deep space and can make side walls, etc. It doesn't look as awesome as the mesh walls we have for our tent, but it's super flexible and we can fit a shit ton of it in a suitcase.
