Getting the Right Exhibition Tables for Your Display Pieces

3rd December 2009

When you choose exhibition tables for the purpose of

displaying pieces or products for your business, there is actually a great deal

to consider. You need the right display option, for the right pieces, and if

you fail to select the right display furnishing, your piece will not stand out,

or it won’t look as well to potential customers as it should. Here are some

things that you really need to consider carefully.

  • How

    large are your pieces? The width, depth, height, and weight must all be

    considered before you choose a table. The table cannot be too small or too

    large for the piece, as this will typically not get you the display

    results that you want. Never go with the old adage that as long as it is

    large enough, it is suitable. Furnishing that is too large really doesn’t

    work any better than furnishings that are too small.

  • Does

    the style of the exhibition tables agree with the style of your display

    pieces? If you have a piece that is technical in nature, with a technical

    outer design, and you try to display it using colonial style furnishing,

    you won’t reach your display goal. If you have a technical piece, it needs

    to be displayed on techno style furniture. If you have a beautiful wood

    piece, it would look silly displayed on techno furniture. Make sure that

    the styles match.

  • Do

    you require any lighting features? Some tables have special lighting

    features, where light can shine on your display piece from the bottom,

    from the top, or from the other angles. Often, light makes the piece look

    even better – and sometimes it doesn’t. Consider your display piece

    carefully, as well as the venue setting, to determine whether you require

    lighting features with your tables.

  • How

    many exhibition tables do you require? If you have numerous pieces to

    display, you do not necessarily need to have a separate display for each

    piece. Some tables are multi-tiered, allowing you to display several like

    pieces on one table, at different heights. Make absolutely sure, however,

    that numerous pieces on one table will be suitable for your purposes

    before going with this option. Otherwise, get a separate table for each

    piece, providing that there is room in the venue.

  • How

    much exhibition space do you have available? While you must consider the

    size of the pieces that you will display to choose the furnishings that

    you will use, you must also consider the amount of space that is available

    in your venue. You need to allow room for the furnishings, as well as room

    for movement of individuals to protect your pieces and to prevent guests

    and potential customers from feeling crowded and closed in.


are many, many options when it comes to exhibition tables, so no matter what

you need to display, or what you hope to accomplish with that display, you can

find the right display furnishings to suit your needs and reach your display

goals. It just takes a little thought and consideration.
