Extended frames create depth for MultiQuad exhibits
ExpoDisplays continues to expand the design options of MultiQuad exhibit users with the new option of extended frames. The new frames add depth and architectural interest to the exhibit by creating protruding areas that pop-out from the exhibit.
The extended frames serve to highlight drop lighting, shelves and marketing messages. Thedepth can be created in the exhibit design either horizontally or vertically with either the width of a single Quad or spanning across multiple Quads. The extended frames were designed to help exhibitors maximize more of their booth space.
MultiQuad users can still choose to use either Standard 12 inch deep or MAX 23 inch frames for the base wall of the exhibit design and then extended their framework out using the clip, which securely holds the extension in place with the use of no tools.
Extended frames are constructed from the same lightweight, recyclable aluminum as the core frames of the exhibit.
EventExplorer 2.0 now available
CompuSystems’ newest version of EventExplorer, a cutting-edge session search engine, provides attendees with a quick and easy way to mine a show’s session portfolio and register for sessions they choose.
