How To Store Your Banners Between Events

Banner advertising is an important part of any marketing campaign. Banners are used at numerous events from trade shows and expos to conferences, fairs, markets and shopping centre displays. Whether you are using your roll up banners as a back drop at the back of your display, on the street advertising your business, or inside your shop.

There comes a time, when you need to pack your banner away, it might be just overnight, for a few days or even a few weeks. Regular vinyl style banners are great for advertising, but they can be a nightmare to deal with when to comes time to store them. Many marketing items you use at a trade show or event look great when they are on display, but, when it comes time to store them away, there really isn’t any *safe way*. When you have been on your feet all day at a trade show or event, the last thing you need to deal with is folding banners and putting them away.

Roll up banners save you from one of the most annoying problems when it comes to display adverting. Roll up banners provide their own safe storage system, built right into the base! Many businesses end up with a cupboard filled with trade show banners AND all the accessories they need to set them up. Trying to find the right banner you need out of all that mess can be extremely frustrating.

Pull up banners change all this. The great thing about a pull up banner is that it retracts into its own base and clips into place. This gives you the safest and neatest storage solution possible. The base can also be slipped neatly into a nylon, or hard carry case for easy transportation. All the pieces you need to support the banner will also fold down or be stored inside the base, no having to search through a cupboard for the right supports.

This means you can store different pull up banners together – side by side or stacked on top of each other in the cupboard safely and securely. The bottom or side of the stand can even be labelled, so you know exactly which banner is which without having to unroll every single one to find the one you need.

Pull up banners also last longer than standard banners as the banner is stored in it’s base and is kept dust free and away from the light while it’s being stored. Pull up banners are rolled into the base, it’s not folded, so it’s not going to become creased which means it will last for years. Every time you go to set your banner up, it will be guaranteed to look great.

Not only are pull up banners convenient to store, but in storage they won’t be exposed to any additional wear and tear. Storage and transportation is no longer a problem.

Tips for Surviving Long Expos

If you’re in the business of exhibitions, you are probably well aware of the long days that sometimes drag on into the evening and through the night. Meanwhile, you have to manage the exhibition and greet the public with a smile. The longs days can beat you down if you’re doing a circuit and this can have an effect of on your overall wellbeing.

Luckily, there are some things you can do to make your life easier to reduce the toll on your body, so you can survive the expo season. Staff management, equipment, and self-care are things to consider when planning your exhibition, so you don’t crash and burn in the end. This post is dedicated to providing you with tips so you can remain, happy, healthy and positive throughout your expo run.

Make Life Easier

Set up and pack down are probably the most physically demanding jobs of the exhibition. If you can, try to avoid using heavy gear that is hard to transport. Pull-up banners are your best friend as they are optimal for a great display and they are easy to set up and pack down. Only take what you need and make sure you have a few spares just in case of a technical issue.

Adequate Staffing

Make sure you have enough staff so that each member can have scheduled breaks throughout the exhibition, so they can recharge their batteries and represent your business with a smile on their dial. It’s also a good idea to provide water to your staff so they can remain hydrated throughout the day. Supplying food is optional, but you will find it makes a big difference and lets your staff know that you care.

The more hands on deck the lighter the work is and having the right amount of staff will ease the load, making set up a lot faster so you can focus on the important stuff. The important stuff is putting your best foot forward for your brand and attracting new customers.

Energy levels

Try to avoid having too much caffeine or sugary drinks. These types of drinks have a tendency to cause dehydration. They may make you feel energised in the short term, although it’s short-lived and you will find yourself crashing and burning midway through the exhibition.

Regular rests

Being in front of the public eye can be physically and mentally demanding, so allow yourself and your staff a fifteen-minute break every three hours to regenerate and come back out to the floor, ready to engage with people. This will prevent everyone from getting frustrated and overwhelmed. It’s not an image you want to send out with your brand or product. The old saying about the happy staff, happy customers reigns true in the expo biz. Oh yes, sleep is very important to make sure you are adequately rested before the event. I can’t stress that enough. I know it’s hard when you’re pulling fifteen-hour days but do your best to get some rest!

Heed this advice at your next expo and you should come out on top and feeling chipper, ready for your next event. At Banner Bug, we know the exhibition display business and we know the toll It can take on your body.
