How do I hang my work on the boards?


Exhibitors have told us over the years that they want a system of hanging that involves no tools, no cost of private technicians and is easy and quick to use. Below is key information about hanging in the booths.


(1) You cannot use screws, nails or velcro directly on the panels.


(2) All your works must have d-rings attached on the back and towards the top corners:


For very heavy and large works (over 44lb), you can use steel bars or hooks (but make sure the D-rings on the back of your works are large enough to hook over):


All your works that are wider than 90cm should have snap-button screw studs (screws also do the job!) on the back at the bottom corners. They can be bought cheaply on Amazon:





 

   





 

 


   


(3) The works are then hung using moulding hooks with wires. These can be bought cheaply from Amazon, Ebay or STAS (https://www.hangingsystems.com). You need a hook about 2cm depth.


It consists of a moulding hook, which hooks over the top of the panel. Attached to that is a wire (steel for heavy items and perlon for lighter pieces) with a sliding hook on it. There are different models, but they look something like this (please note, you do not need the piece of wood):


For shelves, you must use a backing board as shown in the images below. This can be printed with marketing material too. You can also hire free-standing shelves privately.
