Trade Show Signage Essentials

SEPTEMBER 5, 2018| SpeedPro Chicago Loop

A Chicago trade show is expensive to attend and even more costly to exhibit; so it’s critical to get a return on your investment.  A trade show display is the first impression of your brand, it must attract new customers and be compelling to current clients.

Success at trade shows and conventions is measured by your ability to gain fresh viable leads, build on existing relationships and effectively showcase innovative products. Extend your reach and gain new clientele while building brand awareness with these simple elements while exhibiting at McCormick Place, Merchandise Mart or at any of Chicago’s best trade show venues.

So what are the trade show essentials?


SpeedPro Chicago Loop is the best choice for trade show and exhibit signage, only 3 blocks from the famed McCormick Place, moments from the Merchandise Mart and situated near every major downtown hotel. We offer a wide spectrum of Retractable, Telescopic and Spring Back portable display hardware, all suited to make your brand pop with professionalism. Our premium range of custom retractable banner stands come with a wide range of features and functionality including molded protective carry bags and a lifetime warranty.


Whether you’re at McCormick Place, Merchandise Mart or one of Chicago’s wonderful hotel venues, an elegant and colorful throw is a simple way to maximize your presentation table as an effective advertising tool. Table throws are available in a wide variety of sizes and can be custom made to fit your exhibit.  Our table throws feature these four important elements:

  • Durable polyester fabric
  • Vibrant dye sublimation process
  • Full-color custom print
  • Machine washable in cold water


We don’t expect that you’ll have all your trade show signage and graphics done in Chicago, but if it can get damaged in transit, lost when shipping or will be disposed of after the show, you should give it some thought—we can save you money and heartache.  At the very least, have all of your print ready images easily accessible and ready to send to us if a bad scenario becomes your reality.  SpeedPro Chicago Loop is only blocks from McCormick Place, moments from Merchandise Mart and near every major city hotel and exhibition venue.  So if things go bad, give us a call and we’ll be happy to save the day!
