Trade Show Booth Designers Turning to Artificial Plants and Trees

Artificial Plants in Tradeshow Booth Designs

Trade show designers and exhibitors have turned to artificial plants and trees recently, sprucing up (no pun intended) their booths while streamlining logistics. It makes sense: you put countless hours into the design, ship it out, set it up, wear out your shoes and jaw standing and talking for three days, pack it up, and send it off to the next one. You better be efficient, and you better have a design that stands out from your competitors next door. Silk Tree Booth Design

A few benefits of going silk:

- Staying fresh. For booths that move from show to show, live plants are not cost-effective. Silk plants don't wilt or lose their leaves in shipping and only need a little touch up to look good as new.

- Creating themes. Booth designers have used Commercial Silk Int'l silk plants and trees to convey forest themes, such as this Aspen Rocky Mountain booth for guitar company Two Old Hippies, and this Central Park booth for The Ladders.

Government Officials Water Artificial Plants

Carrie Underwood likes to make a splash in her personal and professional life, whether it's dating Coybows star quarterback Tony Romo, or screaming out lyrics on stage. Recently, though, she's taken it to new heights with her concert set design, which featured a virtual fake forest and a rope swing hanging from a giant artificial tree limb.

Silk Plant Maintenance Our beloved US government, known for it's slowness and insatiable appetite for paperwork, put out a bid looking for a company to water its artificial plants. To be fair, the contract did also call for watering live plants. Bidders with a GSA Contract were expected to submit a quote on a very short deadline prior to the end of the department fiscal year, which may have led to the editorial oversight.

Considerations When Buying Artificial Fake Trees

Fake Trees in Design When fabricating an artificial tree, whether the tree be completely fabricated, assembled from pre-fabricated tree bark sheets or whatever method being used, an important factor to take into consideration from an artistic standpoint, is just how realistic or stylized the tree in question should be.

Depending, of course, upon the needs and wishes of the client, or the requirements of whatever given project for which it's being fabricated, will the tree be created as an extremely authentic (museum quality) recreation of nature, a less detailed yet still more or less accurate representation of a real tree or a completely artistic interpretation? And even within this last category, there are many ways in which a fabrication artist can go, taking the design and fabrication of the tree in directions as diverse as a cute, cartoonish and "kid friendly" or even anthropomorphized tree to an almost "fine art" sculptural interpretation.
