I signed up after the deadline for an expo next month and kind of got a yucky booth space. I'm confident I'll do well in this venue, even in this spot, but I'm really, really challenged at how to display!

I'll be selling LARGE items (horse blankets, horse halters, - not my main biz but this is an equine event) and usually rely on being able to affix gridwall to ez-up tent poles when I exhibit in order to get the support needed to support a panel with 50lbs worth of nylon hanging off it! But the booth space they have assigned me is 8'x20' (2 8x10's) and I'm absolutely perplexed at how to work in this space!

My EZ-up tents are 10'x10' so they are out. Any ideas on how to create strong free standing vertical supports or change up the display entirely?

I have always found that PVC Pipe is to craft show construction what duct tape it to ...well the rest of life.

You could build a cube, or several cubes out of PVC pipe and connectors and drape you wares off of them. For added support the can be staked to the ground.
