Portable Trade Show Booth Support Structure
Fawnsberg made its debut at the National Stationery Show in May of 2011. The corner trade show booth used was constructed by Patricia Mumau and Rachel Mumau of Primele Studio.
The booth was built to be modular and free-standing. It can easily be assembled and broken down using common hand tools. When broken down, the booth is extremely compact and relatively lightweight for transporting.
The support structure for the design uses aluminum and galvanized pipe fittings and aluminum pipe. The free-standing structure was given stability by KeeGuard base fittings, allowing a compact profile necessary for meeting the trades how guidelines without compromising the strength of the structure.
“One thing we knew that we wanted to do was to build our entire booth in our studio before packing to leave for the show. We had the option to rent hard walls, but we really wanted to know what to expect from our space, and to have the option of reusing our materials.” says Rachel.
Once the initial pipe structure was designed and constructed, the other pieces could fall into place. The pre-drilled, painted panels were hung using various, common hardware pieces. The moldings, shelf, and signage were attached with 3M Dual-Lock.
“The whole booth was an outstanding success. We were extremely pleased with the strength and stability of the structure. We will most likely use the booth framework for years to come.”
