The Hopup Pop-up Portable Tension Fabric Inline Trade Show Exhibit

Simple, durable, eye-catching and effective portable exhibiting solution

When you think of traditional portable pop-up exhibits, you visualize a standard collapsable framework with magnetic bars that attach to the connector hubs. Plush fabric, or printed end-caps, inkjet printed and laminated mural panels that attach to the framework bars with hangar clips at the upper edge with trim strips at the bottom. The portable exhibit graphics are bracketed by the opposing polarity magnetic strip on the sides.portable 8x8 tension fabric exhibit frame and caseThese standard trade show mural panel systems are still the front runner in the portable trade show exhibit industry, however over the last few years a few challengers have risen to the occasion to lead how portable exhibiting should be done.

These inline portable exhibit systems are the latest in convenient exhibiting options for road shows and trade show venues alike.

LED lights that are allowed in all trade show venues


Many exhibiting venues do not allow traditional halogen lighting due to fire restrictions. Vortex Displays Hop Up exhibit LED lighting system can be used at all venues without fire restrictions. The LED lights clip into the frame hub points as needed for placement at any hub point on the top of the Hop Up display. LED lights have an even throw down the tension fabric graphic surface that ensures clear viewing in dark venues.Orbus hop-up pop-up portable exhibit halogen light kit

Brilliant wrinkle free tension fabric graphics

One huge advantage of using Hopup tension fabric graphics in comparison to traditional mural panels, are that the hop-up tension fabric can bend and take the abuse without leaving kinks or risking de-lamination. That in itself will save you hundreds of marketing dollars and ensure your exhibit looks top notch at every show.

These Hop up graphics are extremely lightweight and durable, can be removed from the frame with ease for quick on-the-fly replacement or left on for your next show. The fabric quickly smooths out once the frame is expanded for a wrinkle free high impact messaging.
