We have all heard the saying, “first impressions last”, and we all know exhibition design coupled with marketing strategy focus very much on creating remarkable first impressions.

Ongoing innovation around technology plays a huge part in contributing to the latest trends within the display and exhibition sector.

We have seen the introduction of a plethora of technology based solutions delivered into this sector to either replace historic printed message hardware or to drive increased engagement by offering interactive messaging. Some of these include LED display walls, touchscreens and more recently virtual reality.

The reality being that the most significant development in recent years is the illumination of messaging in the display and exhibition industry. Although illuminated messaging is nothing new, it’s the simplicity of what is available today that is driving this trend.

With an ever increasing selection of off the shelf hardware combined with ease of installation exhibition has never been easier.

In 2020, illuminated portable displays and lightboxes for use in exhibition, experiential and corporate events are more accessible and affordable than ever imagined.

The OneFrame-GO portable lightbox is the ultimate modular fabric tension lightbox system in the market today. It will allow you the freedom to design to the specific requirements of the brand for any given event.

From a technical standpoint, the OneFrame-GO ultimate fabric tension exhibition systems are a next generation fabric and frame interlocking system that offer you fast and efficient installation on-site that can be reused (and re-configured) for future events.

They deliver a largely tiled visual display that maximises your space and allows your visual impact to trump the framework and structures around you.

The modular frames are robust in construction and engineered from plastic to keep weight down. This tool-free system ensures the build and breakdown of the system remains simple and hassle free. 

With all of the different signage medias that are out there, it can be difficult to choose the right application that will be visually effective at getting attention, while remaining economical. OneFrame-Go portable lightbox displays are available to accomplish just that. In fact, the OneFrame-GO illuminated portable display range offers countless advantages over traditional printed signage applications.

Fabric pop-up portable lightboxes are popular in both event and retail environments because they have a fashionable frameless look and display printed fabric skins that audiences notice. Changing out Silicone Edge Fabric Graphic System (SEG) skins is a simple process that can be achieved with minimal effort or know how. A silicone beading is sewn around the graphic so the fabric can be stretched taught over the perimeter of the frame and tucked into a small channel, simulating the smooth appearance of a rigid substrate, but with edgeless dimension.

The dye-sublimated fabric is lightweight and durable, much less cumbersome than traditional medias. This makes OneFrame Silicone Edge Fabric Graphics (SEG) more friendly for larger signage applications. Also, fabric can be folded, so shipping and storage is much more economical. Not only are shipping costs lower, the risk of damage is almost non-existent when handling.

With the OneFrame-GO backlit illuminated displays both single or double-sided illuminated lightbox applications are all possible.

The OneFrame-GO freestanding portable lightbox is hassle-free, tool-free, portable, cost effective and maintain the integrity of your brand with no compromise. 

Within this range both a portable lightbox bannerstand, fully illuminated backlit display walls and custom lightbox configurations are available.
