Promotional Displays

Are you planning an important Rice University event? University Relations has the expertise and resources to help you represent Rice in a polished, professional manner. Rice University departments may contact the Welcome Center to confirm availability, then complete the reservation request form to borrow any of the items listed below. Your office is responsible for transporting any borrowed promotional display items to and from the Welcome Center.

  • Pop-Up Displays

University Relations has two 10-foot wide pop-up displays to help you create a dynamic event backdrop or an inviting trade show booth. The display on the left shows an aerial photo of the Rice campus with the Texas Medical Center in the background, and it cannot be further customized. The display on the right has two fabric panels flanking a central image shot from the academic quad. Public Affairs can help you create your own text and image panels allowing you to customize the fabric areas of the display or loan you any of the general purpose campus images shown. Each display has electric lights for maximum visibility, measures 10 feet wide by 8 feet tall and comes packed in a wheeled shipping case (approximate shipping weight: 75 lbs). Easy assembly and packing instructions may be viewed and printed below.
