Scandinavian style chairs and tables have been very popular in recent years for trade show stands. The clean lines and minimal aesthetic allow the graphics of the brand (or the products on display) to take centre stage. Minimalist furniture also works well with tech stands that are heavy with audio-visual devices, such as ipads, touchscreens, and video walls.
Things to consider when choosing chair style
Footprint - is space at a premium? Choose lightweight chairs with a small footprint that can be stacked when not in use, or tucked under tables and high benches.
Transportation costs - it's cheaper to transport chairs which stack. Cubes, armchairs and sofas require a lot of cubic space in comparison to chairs which fold up or stack.
Function - will people be eating, drinking, working at a computer or lounging? If people are drinking red wine, coffee and tea, it's easier to clean a metal tolix chair or wooden seat than white fabric upholstery.
Table and chair hire is straightforward when you know how to get the most for your budget.
