Cap it Off
Gyford Decor LLC's StandOff Systems line of hardware for mounting signage, architectural panels, glass, and other materials at a fixed distance from a surface just got a lot more colorful – and customizable – with its Designer Series Caps. Exhibitors can now augment their dimensional displays with some one-off flair by selecting their preferred cap size (diameters range from .75 to 2 inches), choosing any of 12 anodized colors or opting for a custom powder-coated finish, and submitting a design to be either printed or laser engraved on their creations. Alternatively, exhibitors can choose from 14 predesigned motifs. The result is a truly one-of-a-kind finishing touch to product displays, graphic signage, and more.

Sign Language
The eBanner represents a leap forward in exhibit-graphic technology. Available in two standard sizes (80-by-36 inches and 11.75-by-19.5 inches) and in custom shapes up to 80-by-36 inches, eBanners feature miniature LEDs that are embedded in the banner material and turn the printed graphics into dynamic, attention-grabbing messages. Suitable for banner stands, hanging signage, and back-wall displays, the printed substrate is rollable and easily conforms to curved surfaces. The LEDs can be controlled by a mobile app to produce multiple lighting effects, and a rechargeable USB battery lasts up to 14 hours. (Units can also be connected to a wall outlet.) For even more utility, exhibitors can opt to incorporate Near-Field Communication (NFC) tags that allow attendees to receive digital missives simply by tapping their smartphones against the banner's surface.

With a Twist
As the first-ever wireless lightbox, the T3twistlite from Tecna Display Ltd. breaks new ground while stream-lining installation and dismantle. Conductive elements embedded in the frame's aluminum extrusions and connecting "joints" align as the display is assembled by twisting and locking the elements into place, providing electrical power to low-voltage LED strips running along the interior perimeter of the lightbox. Available in three standard sizes (1-by-1 meter, 1-by-2 meters, and 2-by-2 meters) as well as custom dimensions, the T3twistlite system accommodates single- or double-sided silicone-edge graphics and a range of accessories, including shelving, monitor and tablet mounts, and literature racks.

Light Show
Backlit graphics are practically ubiquitous on the show floor, but their time- and labor-intensive setup is a frequent exhibitor pain point. Thankfully, Radiance lights from Optima Graphics Inc. simplify the process. These 2-foot-long, 2-inch-wide LED elements rest solely on the bottom of practically any pop-up frame and distribute light evenly across the entirety of the fabric-graphic display. Each unit's seven super-bright LEDs are designed to even out hot spots and shadows, resulting in consistent lighting effects with minimal installation time. Individual Radiance elements can be quickly daisy-chained together, and up to a 3-by-3 grid can be powered by a single electrical connection.

Turn the Tables
Trade show and corporate event attendees are constantly on the lookout for any opportunity to recharge their mobile devices, and the Wireless Charging Table, Powered from Cort Events, a subsidiary of Cort Business Services Corp., offers them a stylish, cord-free solution. This 20-inch-square, 18-inch-high, off-white cube features a minimalist design topped with a pair of USB ports, an AC outlet, and a wireless charging pad for Qi-enabled devices. The unit requires a single 110-volt power source and can be customized with vinyl-cling graphics for added branding. Contact: Cort Events, a subsidiary of Cort Business Services Corp., Las Vegas, 888-710-2525, www.cortevents.com
Rise and Shine
Remarkably lightweight and easy to assemble – thanks to its PVC frame and self-locking panel system, respectively – the Lucid backlit display from Birttani Display Inc. stands 8 feet tall and is available in widths of 3, 5, 8, and 10 feet. (Custom hanging elements are also available.) Internal LED lighting is preinstalled in the lightbox's frame for added protection and fast setup, and interior and exterior connectors allow exhibitors to attach multiple units at a variety of angles to create more expansive, attention-grabbing displays. After affixing their custom silicone-edge graphics, users can opt to augment their lightboxes with literature holders. Contact: Birttani Display Inc., Azusa, CA, 626-610-4750, www.birttani.com
