More than a Warm Welcome: New World of Reception Desks

Jul 3, 2019

Reception Desks are one of the items that we are increasingly seeing more innovation in. Furnishings are designer, lighting is recessed and projected, and reception desks are taking center stage at many trade show exhibits. See the top picks for stand out reception desks for your next event from a Local Las Vegas Trade Show Exhibit House. Keep in mind that your welcome desk does not need to break the bank, we can fabricate welcome desks in addition to your custom modular exhibit at a fraction of the cost of completely custom exhibits.


AAPEX Show is a perfect space to showcase after market automotive with a custom reception desk. Many trends in trade show design center around repurposed products and an automotive trade show is a great place for a front end welcome desk.


The Cosmetics welcome desk is slightly trickier than the repurposed car desk, as its’ purpose is quite different. The Cosmoprof trade show in Las Vegas features many exhibits that require demonstrations and with demonstrations, especially of cosmetics, and within the layout of a traditional salon environment, the welcome desk is more of a check in space. Custom colors and logos are common for a standard customized desk, we do not recommend more than a standard deviation from this for a cosmetics trade show unless it is in shape.


MAGIC Las Vegas is the fashion super show and welcome desks at this show vary widely, from mannequin entries to desks with focal fashionable points, you will see a lot of creativity on this floor. Some of the most creative entrances include desks with legs holding the desk or desks with projected runways. One of the most cost-effective new technologies is 3D projections and holographics for exhibits. Using a seamless pvc backdrop and projectors, you can make an incredible impact at a fraction of the cost.

CES Show:

AV is king at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. We rent out nearly all of our AV equipment at this show since it encompasses nearly all of Las Vegas. Some of the best welcome desks are interactive areas of display with loaded tablets for welcome then demonstrations in the interior of booths. Our tablets are new models and we work with your marketing to make sure they have custom mounting that is on brand for your show. As a local Las Vegas exhibit house, we guarantee all of our AV throughout the show as well.

World Routes:

One of our favorite industries to exhibit are the tourism based trade shows, such as World Routes. Countries compete in welcome desks and their interior booths to replicate the allure of their countries to travel planners and tour based operators, meaning their exhibits must really draw a crowd. We have replicated a train, a windmill, and much more. For a custom welcome desk we have used models dressed traditionally accompanied with food, which required refrigeration or made a Caribbean bar instead of a traditional welcome desk. Our designers customize exhibits in tourism regularly and made some of the most creative exhibits at these shows.
