3 Stylish 10-Foot Trade Show Displays That Set Up Under 10 Minutes

When you hear the words “portable displays,” one of your first thoughts is likely not how easy it is to carry, but how easy it is to set up, often by just one person. That’s because:

  • Your booth staffer does not have infinite patience.
  • Your booth staffer may be setting up the booth at just one show, and has to learn set up on the spot.
  • Your booth staffer could be reluctant to spend any more time at the show away from their regular job.
  • Your booth staffer may consider themselves to be a business professional and not mechanically minded.
  • Your booth staffer may not be that tall, and insecure about setting up something nearly 8 feet tall.

And yet, once set up is completed, your company still requires a bold, quality image in your booth, so your display has to look great.

Skyline gets all that. That’s why our engineers invented portable display systems that set up easily, promote your brand well at your event, pack fast, and last for years.

3 Skyline portable backwall systems that set up under 10 minutes:

Skyline WindScape® Air-Powered Exhibit System

WindScape challenged long-established assumptions about portable displays, especially that displays required a framework of metal, plastic, or composite materials. That new thinking lead to a much lighter frame source: Air!  The framework is made from tubes filled with air, which is both surprisingly structural, and inflates surprisingly fast. 

Other WindScape advantages:

  • It’s also astoundingly compact.  You can bring your entire 10-foot display and the inflator in an airline carry-on sized case. 
  • A 10-foot backwall display goes from case to show-ready in under 7 minutes.
  • The framework ships uninflated with graphics already attached – just inflate the frame at show and the graphics are in place. 
  • There are many standard 10-foot shapes. You can get the curved backwall shape made famous by pop-up displays, with an even faster set up. But you can also get many new eye-catching backwall shapes that catch the eye.
  • You can layer WindScape shapes for a more dimensional look, and to expand into a 20-foot backwall.

Myriad® Banner Stand Backwall System



All banner stands set up incredibly fast. The retractable graphics pull out of the metal casing just like a window shade.  But Skyline took that fast set-up to a higher level of design and function with Myriad:

  • Merchandising! Myriad has poles inset into the stand base, to which can attach acrylic and metal shelves and literature holders. So, you can put out products, giveaways, props, and brochures.
  • Style! The center panel can be arched on top, which makes for a surprisingly different banner stand look.  Plus, the stand housing cannisters have a more elegant, modern look.
  • With the Arrive case table, the single case converts into a graphic-covered table that has a graphic-capable top, a shelf, and even access to the case for storage during the show.

Exalt® Banner Stand Backwall System

Exalt took a different route than Myriad to go beyond its retractable banner stand roots and become something more stylish:

  • With the simple flick of small levers, you turn three Exalt banner stands into a curved 10-foot backwall. So, you get a more impressive illusion of mass without the weight.
  • Magnets atop the panels ensure the banner stands line up for a more seamless look.
  • Graphics can be swapped out for different messages, or set up at half height for a tabletop display.
  • Also available with the Arrive case table.  The single Arrive case converts into a graphic-covered table that has a graphic-capable top, a shelf, and even access to the case for storage during the show.
