Kathy Quinn Kyle – Pareti Mobile Walls – Mobile Display Marketing

Pareti's heavy duty trade show displays do things that lightweight pop-up displays can’t. With Pareti’s rugged trade show displays you can:

  • Hang actual  merchandise, back-lit signs, or flat screens.
  • Spend less than you would with traditional custom displays, as well as most name brand portable displays.
  • Rearrange the floor plan on the fly for smaller or larger shows as needed.
  • Change things up! Use vinyl graphics or paint if you like (using ordinary house paint)
  • Enjoy very easy maintenance and a long lasting display

Do you need help with graphics? We can help with that too. Our award-winning trade show display designers can help you create the ultimate heavy duty trade show display that will create impact!
