Things to Consider When Setting Up Your Exhibition Table
Now that you’ve taken the time to select the perfect exhibition table to display your pieces, you will need to get it all set up.
Now that you’ve taken the time to select the perfect
exhibition table to display your pieces, you will need to get it all set up.
You need to use as much care getting set up as you used in selecting the
display furnishings that you would use – otherwise, you’ve wasted a great deal
of time. Here are some guidelines that you can follow to make sure that
everything looks perfect for your event.
you need lighting? Hopefully, if lighting is required, you selected
display furnishings that included lighting features. If you did not, can
you arrange other lighting sources to get the light that you need? If not,
you will have to move forward without any special lighting in most cases.
the exhibition table need any covering? Typically, these tables do not
need any type of covering, if you’ve selected the perfect table – unless
of course you selected the table with the intent to cover it. Naturally,
you will want to make sure that the covering that you’ve chosen is
appropriate for your piece, that it isn’t too long, and that it isn’t too
short – or wrinkled.
should you place the table? This is very important. You must carefully
consider the walking paths that your visitors will use. You do not want
your table placed in a position where it will easily be tipped over or
bumped into. In some instances, you will want to make sure that guests are
not tempted to use your display table as a place to set other items, such
as their drinks.
the exhibition table sturdy and in good repair? Before you place anything
on the table, make sure that it is steady and secure, and in good repair.
Double check to make sure that screws and joints are tight, as they should
be. Are any screws missing? Take the time to replace them. You can
purchase a small pack of screws from a hardware store that contain a wide
variety of different sized screws. Bring the right type of screwdriver as
your display piece secure on the table? Once the table is set up, and you
are sure that it is right, you will want to put the piece that you wish to
display on it. Make sure that the piece will not tumble to the floor if
the table is accidentally bumped, or if a door is slammed. Consider every
possible scenario – especially is the piece is delicate, or of high value.
your exhibition table set up can take a bit of time and careful thought, but in
the end, the effort is usually well worth it. Not only is your piece secure and
safe, but it is also displayed in the way that you envisioned it – in it’s best
light, and in the perfect spot. Unfortunately, if you do not take the time to
get things set up just so, disaster could occur, not only ruining your display,
but also ruining your event.
