Best 3D Hologram Displays for Trade Shows

It will come as no surprise that trade show exhibitors need to compete with each other to attract the attention of visitors at trade shows. Regardless of which industry you are in, companies are setting up sleek, professional displays with the latest technologies and custom designs to stay ahead of the curve.

Using a 3D hologram display at your next trade show helps to take your booth to the next level. Incorporating holographic displays at trade shows catches the eye and captures the attention of an audience that may otherwise have passed by your booth.


What Is a 3D Hologram?

A 3D hologram is a projection that feels like it is in the room with you. Anyone can see a 3D hologram without needing special 3D glasses. Unlike virtual reality glasses, which are popular at some trade shows, hologram displays at trade shows can attract more people because everyone can see them without special equipment.

Having a 3D hologram trade show display allows you to showcase your products in a new and impressive way. If you are looking for an eye-catching attraction, you can display other elements like rain, fire, smoke, or fog to attract attendees.

Equipment Required to Display a 3D Hologram

The only requirement to use a 3D Hologram projector is AC power and a good holographic projector. The hologram projector can also be known as a holographic display or holography pyramid and come in a wide variety of sizes based on your projection needs.

Why You Should Incorporate a 3D Hologram Trade Show Attraction

Holograms are a new technology, and businesses are just starting to incorporate them into their marketing material. Using hologram displays in your trade show booth will put you ahead of the competition and help you highlight your products in a fresh and innovative way.

Using a 3D hologram to help tell the story of your business or explain your products' features will help booth visitors and potential customers better understand what you are selling. Advanced technology has made it easier to visually tell stories in simple, memorable ways.

Rent or Purchase the Best 3D Hologram Displays

You can rent or purchase 3D holograms at your next trade show to increase traffic to your booth and drive sales for your company.

3D Holographic Display Fan

A holographic display fan uses a spinning bar, filled with LED lights, to create a 3D hologram. The fan base has a built-in SD card that allows you to swap out images throughout the day. Each fan comes with a kit to help you get set up.

  • 1 LED fan with a 17 in blade
  • 1 SD card with 8GB
  • 1 Remote control
  • 1 Metal mount
  • 5 Screws (1 standard, 4 extension)
  • 1 Card reader
  • 1 AC adaptor cord
  • 1 User manual


Holographic displays are lightweight and portable, making them easy to store and set up. It's easy to attach a 3D holographic display fan to part of your trade show display structure, or simply set it on a counter or table. 

Example Uses for 3D Hologram Displays

Trade show holograms can be superb solutions for trade show booths. For example, if you are limited on booth space. Perhaps your products are very large, too large to fit into a normal booth space. This is not a problem for 3D holographic displays - they can easily provide a holographic projection of your large product, allowing clients to see them while the both of you are standing inside your small booth space. Thus, the 3D holographic projection saved you the cost of the large booth space and the cost of round trip shipping for your large products!

Tips for Creating Holographic Content

  1. The hologram projector can display videos and images.
  2. The software file for your holographic display is stored on a SD card, and can be stored as .avi, .mp4, .png, and .jpg files.
  3. 3D or shaded 2D graphics are needed to give the appearance of a floating 3D object.
  4. Bright colors show up best, especially in high contrast.
  5. Graphics with large shapes show up more clearly than those with small details.
  6. Use a black or transparent background to make your graphic appear to float. The background will appear transparent.
  7. Try to cover the center area of the display with your graphics so the fan hardware is less visible behind the images.
  8. Animated graphics can be rendered at any frame rate, but work best at 24fps and above.
  9. It is highly recommended to use graphics with a resolution higher than the fan’s output resolution of 445pi x 445pi, 26 dpi. Creating graphics at HD quality or higher is recommended.
  10. Multiple videos or images can be played in sequence automatically, simply by labeling the files correctly ( example - name the videos “1_name”, “2_name”, etc.), so they play in the correct order.

If you are giving a stage presentation at a trade show, you can incorporate your presentation into holograms projected onto the stage for everyone to see. These projections are larger and can show images up to 20 ft tall so long as you have a projector designed for showing large images.

The Bottom Line

New technology like hologram projectors will help attract potential customers that you may not have otherwise reached. Incorporating the best 3D hologram displays at trade shows will help set you apart from the competition and help give you a better return on your investment.
