Our Most Popular Case Solution for Your Portable Trade Show Exhibit.

Set-by-step converting case to counter

Looking for a case-to-counter solution that is easy on the eyes and budget-friendly? Our Expand Podium Case is our most popular portable case solution for your trade show and event needs. Event after event, our clients love this case to protect their booth investment, and they appreciate the counter conversion to make them look good in face-to-face conversations. The durable and multi-functional Expand Podium is a shipping case that can store your entire 10-ft booth and fit in your car.

Why you need the Expand Podium Counter

Through the years, this case-to-counter conversion has been a staple in our most popular portable exhibit designs. Unlike the portable pop-up counters that can rock and wobble, this molded plastic case becomes the foundation of the counter, making it stable. We have used ours for over a decade, with minimal wear, and only investing in replacing the front graphic.

The counter graphic wrap is a separate piece that can easily be updated with new branding or messaging for your business. The spacious exhibit carrying case can hold not only the countertop and shelves but also your portable back wall and promotional items. Packing and storing everything for your next event is hassle-free.

As a portable trade show counter, this case is sturdy enough to support those engaging attendees who attentively lean into your conversation. It is a functional counter and has slide-on shelves that can hold up to 22 pounds, which is perfect for your promotional materials. The countertop’s most popular stocked finish is aluminum, available in black or white painted wood, birch, and black plastic.


Accessories for the Expand Podium Case include brochure holders, monitor stands, and promotional headers. Doubling the size of your booth? No problem. Connect two cases and purchase an XL conversion kit for double the impact and storage.

As we transition into another season, please know there are still labor and supply chain shortages. It is becoming more difficult to get materials in at an expedited rate. Production times are doubling, and even tripling. This is a friendly reminder to start preparing for your exhibit NOW.

Longer production time frames and transit delays are causing lead times to double, and sometimes triple. In addition, our industry is also facing price increases due to high freight, material, and market demand. Our manufacturers are raising prices on hardware and display frames, and freight companies are implementing additional fees and larger transit times on large crate shipments.

As a result of these circumstances, our estimates will be higher than you’re previously used to. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding during these extraordinary times.

To alleviate some of the hardship and in an effort to keep prices as low as possible, we ask you to plan ahead for your upcoming deadlines. We understand preparing for your show can be hectic, so please contact us with any questions and how we can assist you!
