I’m putting together a new display for some shows in November and
would like some advice regarding some of my ideas (so I spend my
I will have a 10’x10’ booth with drapes on 3 walls. I have three
glass display cases that 1’x4’ each (on 3’ stands) that can be
arranged in many ways, providing me with 12’ of linear space to
display my work. Rather than putting the cases across the front of
the booth in an “L” shape, I think I would prefer an arrangement
that is more inviting to customers.
One idea is to arrange the cases in a “U” shape (with the open part
facing the rear of the booth) where I stand inside the “U” and
customers view the work from all 3 sides (which might be a traffic
flow problem if the booth is crowded??).
Another idea is to put one case in front of each draped wall (with
enough space behind it so I can take stuff out of it) so customers
can see the work in all 3 cases by being in the center of the booth.
This will require me to move around the booth more and interact
with the customers without always being behind a case. If there are
lots of people, they will all be in the middle of the booth.
If anyone has used either of these configurations effectively or if
you have other tips for making it work (or can recommend a better
arrangement), I’d love to hear it.
One more thing …
I will have 4 20"x30" enlargements of my work to display on the
walls (along with some very cool decorative fabric panels). I think
framing these will make them very hard to hang (from the poles with
drapes on them) so I was thinking of mounting them on foam-core and
possibly having them laminated to protect them from getting damaged.
Ideally I would like the lamination to be a matte finish (like
non-glare glass). How do other people display enlargements of their
Please respond directly to me since I’m not sure that advice for MY
booth is of general interest to the list.
