Exhibition Furniture – Help With Planning What You May Require

Exhibition furniture will be a vital component in the composition of your exhibition stand space, deciding on the right pieces in the correct amount is extremely important. There are a wide range of furnishings to decide from, each performing a potentially vital role for your exhibition stands functionality.


Lecterns are reading desks, usually with a slanted top on which your speaking notes can be placed. Product demonstrations can draw a lot of good attention from potential customers; if you have one planned during the course of a trade show event then a lectern will be a wonderful addition to your exhibition furniture. A lectern will help add a more professional feel to your public speaking. Without a lectern you may appear scruffy holding notes and rustling around trying to find what you need.

Display Counters

A display counter can be used for various purposes including displaying your products, holding promotional leaflets and as a reception counter for staff to greet arriving visitors. If you’re using a display counter as a product display then it’s very important to find one that is stylish and will work with your other exhibition displays, but without overpowering the product placed upon it. You must also be aware of the size and weight baring capacity of display counter, if it will not hold your product it will be all but useless.

Computer Plinths

If you will need to use a computer or laptop at an event to take peoples information, or possibly to control a LCD screen running visual promotion on an exhibition stand, a computer plinth is a prudent choice of exhibition furniture. If you had a random laptop sitting on a chair or the floor it could seem a bit untidy.


Chairs, stools or even possibly a sofa will be a selection of seating you may require. You want visitors to your exhibit space to feel welcome and at ease, giving them a seat will also make it less easy for them to leave whilst you are giving a sales pitch. An exhibition is a long day over a long day and you will also want some seating for you and your staff.

Less Is More

One of the biggest things you want to avoid with exhibition furniture is having too much; you want your exhibit space to be inviting for potential customers to come and view your products and talk to your staff. You should leave enough space for attendees to browse around your displays with ease and without feeling claustrophobic.
