How to choose a trade show tablecloth? 

We all know that trade show tablecloths will help us attract customers and increase brand awareness at the show, so how do you choose a suitable tablecloth? If you are a professional who often participates in events or exhibitions, then this question is undoubtedly simple, but if you are a newbie who needs to try for the first time or have only participated in a few exhibitions, then we have prepared a few recommendations for you. Before knowing how to choose a suitable tablecloth, you need to know what a trade show tablecloth is.


What is a trade show tablecloth?

Before learning how to choose a suitable tablecloth, you need to have a clear understanding of the exhibition tablecloth. The trade show tablecloth is different from the household tablecloth, and there are still certain differences between the two.

Generally speaking, household tablecloths are made of relatively soft materials, which are mainly used for decoration or to prevent oil pollution, to ensure that the table is clean and tidy and has a certain aesthetic effect. The tablecloths we often see are often household tablecloths, and some high-end tablecloths are even made of high-grade fabrics such as silk and satin.


In contrast, the material of the exhibition tablecloth is often not so luxurious, but it is better in terms of wrinkle resistance and durability. There are many situations in which exhibition tablecloths are used in daily life, not only in ordinary trade shows, school events, product marketing conferences, event fairs in the neighborhood, and even beer tastings. On every occasion where a business and brand can be promoted, trade show tablecloths can be used to enhance brand influence and recall.


Points to choose a suitable trade show tablecloth

1. Table Size

The first thing to consider is size, no doubt about it. As we've all been thinking, you do need to take a size measurement and then decide what size tablecloth you need, maybe you want a tablecloth that can be used on as many tables as possible. At this time, the tablecloths that can be converted can meet the needs, such as converting from 8 feet to 6 feet tablecloths, which not only saves money, but also meets the needs of different occasions, and maximizes the value of the product.


2. 3-Sided Or 4-Sided / Fitted Or Stretch

There is not much difficulty in distinguishing the styles of tablecloths, and we should determine the selection of styles from the perspective of the required functions. For example, the choice of three-sided and four-sided tablecloths. The three-sided tablecloth often means that the stall owner can take out the required items from under the table more conveniently, and the four-sided tablecloth is closely covered, so it often plays a protective effect on the items placed under the table. , this is because most of the time people can't see if there are items under the table.

As for whether the tablecloth should be stretched or fitted, it depends on personal preferences, and there is often not much difference in performance between the two.



3. Fabric Material

Each tablecloth material will show different properties and be suitable for use in different scenarios, depending on many aspects, such as your budget, the number of times the tablecloth is used, and so on.

  1. Cotton: Cotton is generally washable, has the characteristics of good dyeability, strong water absorption, and is very durable. It is the most widely used fabric material. But the disadvantage is that it is not anti-wrinkle, and it is also easy to oxidize, so it cannot be used outdoors for a long time.
  2. Polyester: Most tablecloths are made of polyester fabric, chemical fiber has excellent durability, material resistance, and good wrinkle resistance, and has a cotton feel, is cheap, and is machine washable.
  3. Poly cotton fabric tablecloth: Poly cotton fabric is woven with a cotton and polyester blend. It is safe and absorbent like cotton and offers durable, easy-care qualities of polyester. Combines the characteristics of two fabrics.
  4. Vinyl: Vinyl fabrics are stain- and wrinkle-resistant, but are often used less because of their poor appearance, and it is also one of the cheapest fabrics.
  5. Satin: Satin is a high-gloss fabric made from materials such as silk, polyester, etc. Although durable and beautiful, they are very expensive.



4. Logo And Slogan

The purpose of using a customized tablecloth itself is to promote the company and gain brand influence, so our logo and slogan are particularly important. We all want to be able to effectively showcase the brand, and at the same time have unique creativity. This requires close cooperation between itself and the manufacturer. On the one hand, it needs to plan and design the entire tablecloth, and on the other hand, it requires the manufacturer to have the corresponding customization ability to produce the corresponding tablecloth.



5. Unique Idea

As we talked about before your creativity plays a very important role, so feel free to unleash your creativity and ideas. How to catch everyone's attention at the first sight at the exhibition? How to be the center of the audience? These are the effects of thinking creatively.

Finally, print your thoughts on the tablecloth and bring it with you to verify that it works as expected!
