There are many ways to dress a 3m x 3m shell scheme, here we take you through the top 5 ways to do just that.

1 – Popups. The good old popup has been around for years. Put a 3×3 straight into the backwall and you’ll just fit it in with 150mm to spare either side. These kits are quite heavy at 25kg but they come in a large wheeled case which can be used as a branded table.

2 – Fabric displays are much lighter than popups and have become really popular. One large printed fabric sock is pulled over a push fit aluminium frame. No magnetics, no graphic joins. There is a system called Modulate and they have various sizes which do magnetise together and can create a bigger display filling the full stand.

3 – Shell cladding has been done in various forms for years. Historically you could get rigid or semi-rigid panels that velcroed onto plastic fixings that connects to the shell posts. These panels are quite good but not as good a full fabric walls. Now you can build your own portable frame that fixes to any shell scheme and attach the graphics and cover each shell wall with graphics. Then use them again at the next show. Lovely!

4 – Isoframe Wave is an extendable portable display which has a consistent width of graphic at 800mm wide. The great thing about this kit is the ability to add or take away panels to fit different sized spaces. Lots of accessories which add to its flexibility.

5 – T3 stand building in shells gives you the next step up making your stand look more professional. It really works when adding in screens and because all the bits can be re-used in different spaces it does make economic sense when you’re wanting to invest in a system and do the stand building yourself.

All of these options work, which is best for you is down to certain factors. Who’s building it? How are you transporting it? What your budget is? What other spaces do you book?
