Truss DisplaysTrade show truss systems are unlike any other show display on the market because you have the ability to reconfigure them and create a whole new look to fit your needs and style at the convention. What makes truss displays so simple to reconfigure is the fact that each truss section is lightweight and can be assembled with either knob connectors or twist-lock connectors, requiring no tools.

Truss displays systems may have extravagant constructions, but can actually be packed up into easy-to-transport shipping cases. Dont let these lightweight, portable trade show exhibits fool you; they are actually very sturdy and tough for a long-lasting build. Some display stands only have a lifespan of a couple of years before they begin breaking and coming apart. With the exhibition truss, you won t have to worry about that because it is built of heavy-duty aluminum or steel. The graphics can easily be changed in order to promote new products or services from one show to the next.
