If time is of the essence, Tadd Sales Rebel by Tadd Innovations Inc. may be the solution. The portable, self-contained audio-video display sets up in about a minute, without the need for mounting brackets or hardware. Users simply roll the product into place using
a handle and wheels that are discreetly
incorporated into the unit’s design. Once the unit is in place, users flip open the top of the pod (which measures 40-by-25 inches, with a depth of 20 inches), plug it in, press a button on the control pad, and raise the high-definition, 32-inch flatscreen monitor to the desired height (up to
a maximum elevation of roughly 6 feet). A convenient retractable table adds to the Sales Rebel’s functionality.

on-screen options and viewing or listening to the content. Each 32- or 46-inch MultiTouch Cell can be connected to other Cells to make one large display area of as many Cells
as you need, all of which reproduce images in high-definition clarity.

Slip a little light into your exhibit with the Light Pocket from Fairfield Displays & Lighting Inc. The Light Pocket comprises an acrylic panel with LEDs imbedded in
it, allowing for an even spread of light, which diffuses across the whole panel and creates a bright-white, edge-lit border.
Offering 100,000 hours of lamp life, the LED lighting is economical and energy efficient. An acrylic “pocket” attaches to the panel, creating a space into which a graphic can be slipped. Exhibitors can change out their graphics or posters in a snap by simply inserting or removing them via the top of the graphic pocket. Light Pockets can be suspended from Fairfield’s cable and rod systems. Both single and double-sided options come in 8.5-by-11 inch, 16-by-20 inch, and A4-A2 standard-paper sizes, but custom sizing is also available.

Next time you’re having trouble
visualizing a new booth design,
you can make your own renderings online with Babycad, a new web-based 3-D rendering tool. Simply visit the Babycad website and set the booth-space dimensions to your project’s size. Next, select common booth
elements from an on-screen menu. You can add items such as back walls, display stands, reception desks, conference tables, and kiosks. No design experience or special computer skills are required; if you can visualize it, you can build it. When your project
is completed, simply print the 3-D
renderings — which can be shown in various angles, e.g., overhead, side view, etc. — to view your new booth design. You can also sign up for a Babycad ProAccount and save your 3-D rendering to update or modify at a later time.
