Jen McDonough asked me about banners I use for booths when I'm speaking. I don't do this a lot. In fact, I only do it when I'm vending because usually, when you keynote, you get a table to set up your product. If you ask for your table to be strategically placed right outside the door of the auditorium where people exit, you don't need a banner or sign. In fact, it's just one more thing to carry with you when you travel and you want to save all your baggage room for product. Make sense?
However, when I am a vendor, I use two banners. One is a stand alone and the other I put in the back of my booth. Neither are super expensive, but they have worked well.
Attached is what I put in the back of my booth. Notice the graphics are high enough to allow a table in the back of the booth without blocking the graphics.
Additionally, here's my stand up banner. It stands up by itself on the side of my booth. This is not something I'll use with the new market I'm going after, but it worked well in a previous market.
Oh Kent, this is great to know. I wasn't thinking of the "travel" hassle with these signs. Good to know it isn't worth it to bring to your "regular" events.
BTW: Your banners look awesome!
