Trade Show Flooring Carpet Tips
Trade show flooring carpet is often overlooked, but the reality is that, even in the smallest 10x10 space, that is 100 SF of exposure - don't waste it!
At the very least, make sure it is neat and comfortable, with a nice looking trade show carpet that helps your display look it's best. And you'd be surprised how much more energy your sales staff will have if you add some carpet padding or padded tiles!
Worthwhile trade show flooring options include rolled carpet, carpet tiles available with carpet and faux wood designs. You can also add a logo into the carpet if you like. Top end booths (and budgets) also include raised trade show flooring options, with under-lighting and special graphics.
If you attend more than one or two shows a year, investing in your own trade show carpet will pay for itself. And with a little care, that flooring can last for years - and the care isn't difficult.
Simple steps include cleaning it before shipping, shipping it carefully, and careful installation at the show.
Tips on Caring for your Trade Show Carpet
Most tradeshow flooring carpet will likely arrive at your show or office rolled on a tube - keep that core and use it for shipping and storage; it will help keep the floor taut and smooth, preventing any damage. You can also ship the rolled carpet strapped to a pallet, to prevent damage (especially to the ends) while in transport.
Have you ever had your trade show carpet or carpet tiles taped to the floor by show services?
This happens to almost everyone - even those that try to prevent it. It is common to install the carpet yourself, without tape and came back the next day to find that the show management has decided on their own to tape down the outside edge of the carpet.
Many shows insist on doing this, in order to make sure the edge of the trade show carpeting is firmly held to the floor so that no one trips on it.
The common result, for those that haven't prepared for it, or experienced it, is that when you try to remove the carpet it is VERY easy for that double-sided tape to remove a layer of your carpet backing. It only takes a few times, and your plush carpet is ruined and needs to be replaced.
There is a simple solution; attach a 3-5 inch wide strip of clear tape to the outside edge of every piece of carpet or carpet tile. Permanently. Then the tape on the floor sticks to your tape, not the carpet, and it is simple to then remove the show carpet tape from the tape on your carpet.
Also, make sure the carpet padding doesn't extend all the way to the end of the carpet; leave about 3 inches, so that there is room to tape down the carpet - if you don't, the padding will likely get chopped up to create that space for taping, damaging your padding and creating an uneven cut that will be more difficult to work with next time.
Be sure to clean up any spills at the end of the day, or at the end of the show - you won't want to set up the flooring at your office later. Be sure to bring an approved cleaning solution with you to the show, and you'll be all set.
Last but not least, supervise the removal of the flooring, and don't allow workers to rip away the tape carelessly or yank on the interlocking tiles and damage them. See it all packed away correctly, and your trade show carpeting and flooring will last for years, providing an excellent return on your investment.
