Portable wall systems for small exhibits by Hunter

Portable Wall Systems for Your Small Exhibits

Setting up a small exhibition can be a complex undertaking if you don’t have the financial and physical resources to see it through. Among the essential physical resources is the use of portable wall systems to present the objects and artworks to be exhibited. 

But did you know that there are several types of portable or modular wall systems and solutions that can help you stay within your budget and maximize your resources? Whether you’re organizing a small, captivating art exhibition in your school or a public venue, portable wall systems offer unparalleled flexibility for your design and presentation requirements. Let’s look at some of the solutions available, from the most affordable to the most versatile for exhibitions.

Solution #1: Renting a Portable Wall System

As an exhibit organizer, purchasing portable exhibition walls may not be the right solution for you if you have a limited budget and organize an event lasting just a few days, once or twice a year. It’s certainly not worth the expense not only of the initial wall system purchase but also of storing and transporting your portable walls.

Fortunately, there’s an easy, economical solution that offers affordability, flexibility and quality: rental. Rental wall systems, such as beMatrix panels, are designed specifically for exhibitors like you who are looking for a temporary solution for small, one-off or ephemeral displays. 

This hassle-free alternative allows you to maximize the value of your investment while minimizing costs. With rental, you can enjoy the convenience of hassle-free delivery, quick and easy installation and dismantling, and greater versatility in creating unique experiences. With a rental portable wall system, you can showcase your objects and artwork in style, without the added burden of ownership.

Solution #2: Purchasing Scenario Modular Walls

Scenario Modular Wall System

The Scenario modular wall system provides an innovative and affordable framework you can rely on to bring your vision to life. Functioning as a neutral backdrop for small and large exhibits alike, the wall system is tastefully minimalistic in design to allow your exhibit to take center focus. Developed with budget, convenience and versatility in mind, the Scenario modular wall system is the perfect economical solution if you are looking for a variety of creative possibilities and a hassle-free experience.

  • Endlessly customizable: Adaptability is key when it comes to creative exhibits, and the Scenario modular wall system delivers. You can easily modify, decorate, and accessorize to suit your specific needs. Exhibitors use lighting systems, picture hooks and hangers, doors, and more, to create stunning displays.

Wall systems play a critical role in creating unique art exhibits. Meeting the ever-changing demands of the art world requires adaptable solutions that simplify the staging process. More comprehensive than Scenario, buying beMatrix modular panels offers a range of features designed to meet more demanding requirements. Among these key features you’ll find:

  • Original Frame Systems – Distinct to the beMatrix brand, the original frame system features large holes around the perimeter of the frame that make it easy to connect two aluminum frames as well as mount panels and textiles using toolless connectors.
  • Toolless Finishing Options – These modular walls can be customized to seamlessly integrate lighting solutions, such as lightboxes for dynamic effects or LEDskin AV solutions for visual and motion effects into your art installation design.
  • Versatile Exhibit Concepts – beMatrix offers equally diverse frames (straight, curve or corner) and infill panel options (custom materials, custom graphics, paintable surfaces) to adapt to the changing demands and requirements of each art installation. 
  • Seamless Fabric Concept – A design technique used to ensure that the aluminum frame remains discreet, beMatrix offers cohesive display solutions that flow with any space. The wall is formed by stretching fabric across multiple panels and finishing it off with silicone edges. 
  • Reusable Design – The sturdy aluminum frame serves as a reliable foundation for reusability. An alternative to single-use display solutions, you simply need to swap out the panel attachments as needed and your beMatrix walls are ready for the next event. beMatrix walls offer a sustainable approach that minimizes waste and can last for up to 20 years.
  • Customization Options – beMatrix modular walls are designed to create immersive, full-room experiences by integrating ceilings, floors, and walls at any size or angle.

A quick note: beMatrix panels are also ideal for creating trade show booths, an option that can be useful for certain types of companies and organizations.
