Vertical Storage Becomes Space Saver at Trade Show

When our sales team attends trade shows and conferences, the goal is to utilize C-Line’s products as much as possible within the exhibit space. It helps the show attendees visualize how products are actually used, and we enjoy putting our items on display.

The 13-Pocket Vertical Expanding File was added to the line in early 2014, and in a short amount of time, this item has become essential to have at all shows we exhibit at. It has been put to use in a variety of ways, but the most beneficial aspect of the file is how it organizes the papers.

Instead of storing letter-size documents in landscape orientation like other files, this holder keeps the documents vertical, allowing the information on the pages to be read with ease. Storing the pages this way reduces the amount of space the file takes up, which is necessary when trying to fit a lot in a small 10 x 10 booth space.

C-Line's 13-Pocket Vertical Expanding FileTake a look at how the Vertical File was used to display samples during a recent show!

Here are a few ways we have utilized this unique file during recent trade shows:

  • Literature Holder: Attendees like to have some information to take home about C-Line. We will often have marketing sheets and catalogs available for individuals to pick from. The file is freestanding, so the sales staff can insert all the literature prior to the show and allow attendees to grab hand-outs as they pass by the booth.
  • Customer Sales Organizer: When attending a national sales show, each Sales Manager organizes their reports by customer. The dividers are used to alphabetically organize the paperwork. The file can be compressed when traveling and stored in a briefcase or suitcase. When at the show, simply expand the file and stand-up on a flat surface to use.
  • Sample Display: C-Line has a variety of project folders, sheets protectors and dividers that are regularly displayed at shows. Instead of laying these individual samples out on the table and taking up of space, this stand-up file can be used to showcase these items. The samples are spread throughout the 13 pockets of the file, allowing attendees to see, compare and touch the samples.

As you can see, we have found many uses for this Vertical Expanding File. The cut-outs on the front and back cover make it possible to move the file from one place to another. The pockets instantly organize sell sheets, samples and customer reports, while making it quicker for the sales manager to locate a specific document.

The Vertical File is a great way to save space, while organizing up to 750 pieces of letter-size paper. Use this product almost anywhere; home, school, office and more!
