We know trade show counters are important. They provide a workspace, a storage space and additional graphic space. Far too often counter style and their contribution to the trade show design is overlooked.
This is especially true with exhibitors on a budget. We’re specialists in trade show counters and ready to help you get better trade show counters for less money.
We assert that having good trade show counters is your best opportunity to improve even the most basic trade show booth. Subtle differences influence the perception of your booth and company. The height of the trade show counter is one difference that will stand out once its on the show floor with competitors counters all around. Surprisingly, the thickness of the counter top is another difference that contributes to the overall look and feel of your trade show booth.
We specialize in trade show counters for rent. All our rental counters have locking storage and internal shelving and options to bring power to computers or other devices on the countertop. All of our trade show counters feature thick custom looking counter tops, inset doors with tight corners and seams. Our standard trade show counter height is 40” tall, but in many cases we do make customized shorter counters to meet a specific need.
To have counter options in every price point we’ve developed two types of rental counters. Custom wood and our unique modular trade show counters.
Our custom wood trade show counters are large elegant sweeping counters. These are well built counters with inset locking doors and internal storage shelves. These counters have a gentle sweeping curve to their shape. They don’t break down for packing. They ship in large sections which we assemble onsite. They are a great option when looking custom outweighs saving money.
We have another unique line of rental counters that do break down for shipping. We have these also in large sweeping counters as well as many smaller sizes. At first glance you wouldn’t notice they are different. It requires close inspection to notice our modular counters have a internal aluminum frame with a satin Sintra finish.
Both counters can be branded with a front printed Sintra panel. Our modular counters can easily be branded with printed Sintra on all sides, including the inset doors.
We also have a few types of counters. We have counters designed to mount against a wall – we call these Backwall Counters. These are keyboard counters and credenzas that provide the added benefit of adding stability to the attached wall. We have counters with countertops that overhang the base and counters where the top and sides are flush, we call these our Euro style counters.
We’re feel strongly about trade show counters and if you have a special need, please let us know. There’s a chance we’ve done it before and can easily do for you. Scroll below to browse our standard rental trade show counters – priced to help you stay within budget. We also recommend you browse our priced rental design ideas, filtered to show you only rental design ideas with trade show counters. There will be many since trade show counters are very common but you have the option to drill down further by size and budget.
Bright white is our standard counter color. For most counters the the top is wood with white high pressure laminate. For most of our counters the base panels are white and can be printed front, sides and back.
If you prefer a custom counter, tell us what your looking and we’ll give you a price and drawing. If its something we can add to our rental inventory we will give you a rental price. If not, we’ll give you a purchase price for your custom counter.
Yes, most all of our counters include a internal shelf, mid why up the the 40″ height of the counter. These shelves cannot be adjusted but can be removed if you prefer. Consider what you will be storing and the size of he door opening with the shelf. Sometimes the space is better utilized without the internal shelf.
There are 2 kinds of custom counters. The first is the most common. Most clients looking for a custom rental counter care about the counters size and function. They may want a specific size top or storage compartments.
In this option we try to develop a custom counter than will fit our design style while giving the custom features our client requires. This is still a rental counter and not priced as a purchased counter. Many of our custom counters started this way. It allows us to give custom features and also grow our rental counter inventory.
The second option is a custom counter that is very specific to our clients needs. This might be one even built to our clients exact drawing or specifications. In this example this custom counter would be a purchased item, its price would be retain and we would likely need to plan to include a dedicated shipping container so that this counter can be shipped back to the our clients warehouse – or stored for a storage fee.
Purchased counters would appear under the purchased graphics section of your invoice and sales tax applied. Overall you can see why this is not common. A client needs to really want the custom counter to choose this more costly direction. Still, a custom counter may me a small important addition to a larger great looking rental booth.
Most of our counters do dismantle and pack flat.
First the top is removed, the internal shelf is removed, and the ends are removed. We have flat and curve counters that dismantle to pack flat. Both are constructed similarly.
We also have a number of all wood counters that do not dismantle and pack flat. These are our largest reception counters with subtle curve and wire management that set them apart.
Many countertops come with at least one hole and grommet for wire management. You’re welcome to use that existing hole but not drill other holes in the counter top.
With our counters that pack flat, you have an additional wire management option. You are allowed to drill holes the base panels thru which to run cords. This allows you to place holes where they need to be to efficiently run cords from equipment just over the edge of the counter and into the base.
If you have other needs, let’s please discuss. Once we understand what you want to do, we may have a way to give you just what your looking for.
Our counters deter theft, but none are so secure that its not possible for a motivated thief to access.
Our wood reception counters are more secure than our counters that pack flat. Overall we recommend you not leave valuables in your trade show counters.
People to search booths and counters looking for things like cleaning supplies, and pens etc, and they know how to peel back panels, and lift counter tops to gain access to the typical trade show counters.
Having said that, I cant think of any counter or closet theft reported in all my 18 years renting show booths. We’ve had things left out in the open stolen including furniture and even a TV removed from a wall, but no forced entry of a counter.
Most of our counters are 41 inches tall. This is the typical height of reception counters at trade shows. Most standard bar height stools fit well with 40″-42″ counters.
Any shorter, a counter tend to look cheap. For example many portable counters are 36 inches tall, but this is typically so that portable counters can pack into portable cases and ship USP or FEDEX without oversize issues.
Due to the innovative way we construct our counters, we have the ability to easily make counters taller or shorter depending on your need. So, if you have a particular idea in mind, talk with us and let us see how close we can come.
