Custom Modular Assembly: Slide Clip Connectors and Locking Hex Key Connections (tool included)
There are islands. Then there are Gravitee One-Step Island Exhibits. When you choose a GK-5087 Gravitee Island, you get a contemporary display with large graphics, practical accessories, mostly tool-less assembly. The full-size panels slide together with attached connectors, whether flat or curved. Most islands pack in one or two crates, saving you on freight and drayage (material handling). And assembly takes half the time of a traditional custom exhibit. While there are modular panel wannabes, only Gravitee combines no tools, no loose parts, and a lifetime warranty on workmanship. Many Gravitee islands are available as a rental or for purchase.
Browse through the island gallery where you'll see a wide range of options and prices. These are meant to generate ideas. There are no cookie cutter designs. We'll design the island exhibit that matches your specific marketing goals and budget.
Many islands are re-configurable to smaller inlines or larger islands. For more information, click on the Contact Us button or give us a call.
Island exhibits are displays bordering 3-4 aisles, with the smallest starting at 20’ x 20’. Inline exhibits, by contrast, typically border 1 or 2 aisles and are usually 10’ x 10’ or 10’ x 20’.
A major benefit of island exhibits is that they do not have the same height and perimeter limitations as inline displays.
Note: Hanging signs are permitted above island booths.
Yes and no. It depends on your island and inline design requirements. Most of the time those are close enough for a seamless reconfiguration.
Give us a call or send us an email and we’ll show you design examples. Or, we’ll be happy to work on a “ground up” design specific to your marketing goals.
Renting an island exhibit is the ideal choice in this situation. Renting is affordable, typically 30-40% of a purchase, and we have an extensive gallery of island and inline rental designs.
If you don’t see something you like, no problem. About 50 percent of our rentals are new designs or modifications of existing designs. If it makes sense for you, and it makes sense for us, then we’re happy to create a unique configuration that meets all your trade show marketing requirements. See all your options in the Rental Gallery.
Absolutely! When it comes to islands, it's rare that someone purchases a kit "as is." Nearly every island gets tweaked, or we start from scratch based on your requirements.
That's the fun part of this process: designing a display that makes your trade show program successful.
Give us a call or send us an email. We'll meet with you to review your trade show marketing requirements, including your budget. Then we'll work together to create an exhibit that maximizes your message and sales potential at your show.
Typical Island Show Regulations
Regulations vary by exhibit hall but the following are typical: Maximum height of 30' in all areas of your booth allowed in North Hall and Central Halls 3-5. Maximum height of 20' in all areas of your booth is allowed in Central Halls 1-2. Maximum height of 22' in all areas of your booth allowed in South Halls. No limitations on the number of solid walls for your Island booth.
Note: Hanging signs are permitted above island booths.
Canopies and Ceilings
Canopies, including ceilings, umbrellas and canopy frames, can be either decorative or functional (such as to shade computer monitors from ambient light or for hanging products). Canopies for Linear or Perimeter Booths should comply with line-of-sight requirements.
The bottom of the canopy should not be lower than 7 ft. (2.13m) from the floor within 5 ft. (l.52m) of any aisle. Canopy supports should be no wider than three inches 3 in.(08m). This applies to any booth configuration that has a sight line restriction, such as a Linear Booth. Fire and safety regulations in many facilities strictly govern the use of canopies, ceilings, and other similar coverings. Check with the appropriate local agencies prior to determining specific exhibition rules.
Covered ceiling structures or enclosed rooms, including tents or canopies, shall have one smoke detector placed on the ceiling for every 900 square feet.
Hanging Signs and Graphics
Hanging signs and graphics are permitted upon approval in all standard Peninsula, Island and Split Island Booths, with a maximum height of sixteen feet (16 ft.)(4.87m) to the top of the sign as measured from the floor
Whether suspended from above or supported from below, they should comply with all ordinary use-of-space requirements (for example, the highest point of any sign may not exceed the maximum allowable height for the booth type). Double-sided hanging signs and graphics shall be set back ten feet (10 ft.)(3.05m) from adjacent booths and be directly over contracted space only.
Theatrical Truss and Lighting
Ceiling-supported theatrical truss and lighting are permitted in all standard Peninsula, Island and Spilt Island Booths to a maximum height of twenty feet (20 ft.)(6.1m) where ceiling permits. Ground-supported truss may not exceed the maximum allowable height for the booth type. Logos or graphics are not permitted over the sixteen-foot (l6fl)(4.87m) height restriction and must have four feet (4 ft.)(1.22m) of separation from the top of the sign to the top of the truss.
Exhibitors should adhere to the following suggested minimum guidelines when determining booth lighting:
