Outdoor Banners and Flags for Outdoor Exhibitors

Feather Flags - APG ExhibitsFeather Flags

Feather flags are standard for outdoor banners. They attract attention with large waving graphics that are great for attracting attention from the street. The art design typically used on these flag displays include strong lines and colors with minimal text. The way the feather flags wave in the wind makes it difficult for viewers to read any text on the flags. These outdoor banners are best used to grab attention and give viewers a general, basic message about a brand, product or sale. Many feather flags may only have one word like “SALE” to communicate their main message. Much more text than that may lead a viewer away from the display because of the difficulty in ready the message.

Bow Flags - APG Exhibits

Bow Flags

Bow flags are kind of like a cross between standard outdoor banners and feather flags. Bow flags are easier to read since they don’t flutter in the wind like feather flags do. However, these outdoor banners are set up just like feather flags, most commonly with a ground stake or weighted bottom.  Bow flags are great compliments to a display tent or table for any outdoor event. There is more space on a bow flag to put copy. It is easy to add a short marketing message with a logo on a bow flag. These outdoor banners are available in 3 different heights, with multiple hardware options on the APG website. These bow flags are printed full-color in a knit polyester, which can stand up to harsh weather with no problem.

Pole banners are a great way to use the surrounding environment to add outdoor banners in any place.  Pole banners give exhibitors a wonderful opportunity to draw in more traffic from surrounding areas. These can be placed on city light poles to attract drivers or passers by to a near-by event. Pole banners are clean and sharp, providing a great space to communicate a short message like “Dessert Fair in Market Square.”

Feather & Bow Flag trade show productsFlags

Flags are great trade show products to compliment outdoor tents. These can be set in front of a tent to attract additional attention. They’re simple, yet colorful and can display your logo or information in a dynamic way.  Unlike static signs, these unique banners capture the breeze and begin to move, grabbing customer attention. Exhibitors can use one, two, or more feather flags or bow flags to compliment a tent.

Event Furniture

Chairs and other pieces of event furniture are great options for any outdoor display. Many outdoor event attendees will spend hours on their feet. They will likely appreciate finding a few spare seats to take a load off for a few minutes. This can give tent staff an opportunity to spring up a casual conversation and promote products or services. Consider your goals and event attendees when choosing event furniture. Inflatable options can provide more branding space, but they may not give your outdoor display the look your attendees will like. See all event furniture options here.

Table Covers

Tables are essential outdoor trade show products. They provide a place to keep literature, product samples, giveaways and more. Adding a table cover gives exhibitors additional branding space and makes a an old portable table look sharp and professional. Consider the fitted table cover options for an outdoor display. The fitted covers are less likely to fall off or become hard to read in the wind.



Small is Big With an Eye-Catching Outdoor 10′ x 10′ Booth

Make a big statement with the right outdoor 10′ x 10′ booth

Outdoor 10 x 10 Booth With Flag

Just because your outdoor event space is limited to a small 10′ x 10′ booth, doesn’t mean you are limited to a small design of your exhibit space.

With the fantastic improvements in graphic printing technology and the latest solutions available in hardware to host them, you can make a big impression in a small space with trade show displays like a pop-up tent with a flag as shown in this particular 10′ x 10′ booth.

Although pop-up tents are designed with a roof to protect people from the elements, the additional graphics space on the roof and the flag, as in this example, can be a great way to stand out when you are a small booth area. The additional flag topper adds several feet of height to your display, helping your brand to, literally, stand above the competition.

If you showcase your products in both indoor and outdoor event displays, you may be able to use the same 10′ x 10′ booth in both cases. You may be in a small space, but if you can think big, your little display will shine above the rest. At every trade show there are ‘landmark’ exhibitors that really stand out.

Wouldn’t you love if that landmark exhibitor was you at the next exhibition? Make sure that exhibitor is you, by making the most of your trade show space in every situation. With the right tools and great staff, your trade show booth can outshine the rest.

Incorporating Several Outdoor Displays in One

The secret to creating the best, most unique event display is by incorporating a variety of outdoor displays into one, large display. has a wide variety of outdoor displays that can easily be used together. Here, I will point out a few outdoor displays that can be used from the APG website to create a great outdoor trade show display.

Outdoor Displays

Pop Up Tents


Start with a strong foundation for your outdoor display. Any exhibitor planning to attend an outdoor display for a few hours should have a tent at minimum. It provides excellent branding space to display logos, brand names and primary brand messages. It also protects the booth staff from the elements, including sun and rain. Tents come in sizes from 10′ x 10′ to 20′ x 20′. Chose a size that will fit your budget and any other outdoor displays you want to use in the tent.

Event Furniture has two types of event furniture to choose from: deck furniture and inflatable furniture. Pictured on the left is a deck chair lounger. It is light-weight and easy to store as a collapsible piece. The inflatable furniture is also easy to work with, especially with the optional blower system. The blower system inflates and deflates the outdoor event furniture in minutes for you.

Outdoor Banners

Outdoor banners like this 16′ Wind Dancer can attract additional attention with its fluttering flag and additional height. However, smaller flags can be just as effective when placed at the tent entrance. Two bow flags at a tent entrance can help outdoor exhibitors better display logos and attract more traffic to the tent.
