If you’re wondering, ”how much information do I need to know about trade show table covers?” Honestly, not much…  but understanding the basics will save you time and avoid design and purchasing missteps. Let’s begin with the obvious. 

Have you ever seen an article featuring the “World’s Most Attractive Folding Banquet Tables?” Probably not. Banquet tables are designed to be convenient and utilitarian. Not pretty. The tables supplied to exhibitors have led hard lives – folded and unfolded hundreds of times, dropped and tossed, and with a surface resembling a country road. 

Fortunately, it’s easy to transform them into branding fashionistas – with attractive curves, bright colors, and appealing graphics with the added benefit of “wash and wear” convenience. In addition, fabric table covers are available at a range of prices from “how can they sell that so cheaply?” to “I need a table cover, not a designer dress.” And everything in between. 

We offer only the best materials: premium twills, vinyl permanent logos, and dye sublimation. Our table throws are sewn with the highest quality seams and hems. All are washable and fade-resistant. 

5 Reasons to Invest in Trade Show Table Covers

Table throws are a must-have item for trade shows, recruiting, retail, events, and more!

1. Branding

A table throw with your logo not only reinforces your marketing message, but also gives you instant credibility. 

2. Visibility

You’re there for a reason – to be seen. In a sea of exhibitors and competitors, a well-designed table throw is a beacon attracting potential clients to your table.

3. Inviting

A table throw creates a more inviting and comfortable space for potential clients.

4. Cleanliness

For many shows, generic table throws can be rented from the show organizer or service contractor. Have they been washed recently? Probably. Are they as clean as you would want them for yourself, your colleagues, and your clients? Probably not. Bring your own, freshly laundered table throw. 

5. Convenience

There’s no guesswork when you bring your own custom-printed table throw. It’s always available and comes with your branding and messaging.

How to Care for Trade Show and Event Table Covers 

  • Wash in cold or warm water, preferably in a large front-loading washer. 
  • Do not use chlorine bleach.
  • Tumble dry on low setting, not to exceed 120 degrees.
  • Remove immediately to prevent the fabric from wrinkling
  • Do not use an iron directly on the logo or printed fabric. Iron on the backside of the image (if necessary). 
  • Meets NFPA #701 standards for fire resistance.
