Portable Podiums and Trade Show Podiums

Anyone who speaks, teaches or presents on a regular basis needs a podium. However, most podiums are very heavy and difficult to move. They may weigh more than 120 pounds, and even those that claim to be portable often simply have wheels attached. This makes them very difficult to move up and down stairs, in and out of cars, and across campuses. This is where portable lightweight podiums come into play. These podiums are great for:

·Professional speakers: Many professional speakers lecture in a different place every day. If they have to use whatever's available, they may find themselves lecturing without a podium or using one that doesn't have anywhere to put their materials.

·Corporations: Corporations may use podiums for employee training, sales events, guest speakers, or for trade show podiums. They may need multiple podiums, but they need them to be out of the way when they are not in use.

·Religious leaders: Often, religious leaders find themselves preaching at places other than their home church. Portable lightweight podiums are easy for them to carry to retreats, revivals, college campuses and other congregations.

·Schools: Teachers may need to carry podiums to different classrooms, and principals may need to use them when they speak to the student body. In addition, many schools invite guest speakers on a regular basis. However, they often don't have room to store a bulky traditional lectern.

·Non-profit organizations: Non-profit organizations need to be able to promote their cause anywhere. They need a podium that they can use either at a charity event or in a lecture hall, and they need to be able to set it up quickly and use it to store all of their presentation materials. Trade show podiums are particularly useful for non-profit organizations, but they must be portable.

·Traveling salesmen: Portable, lightweight trade show podiums are great for industry trade shows and sales presentations, and they can even be used inside people's homes.

In spite of all the myriad uses for portable lightweight podiums, however, there aren't many of them out there. Most of the podiums that claim to be portable and lightweight are simply lecture platforms. They are very similar to music stands, which means that they are quite flimsy and don't have any storage space. Other portable podiums have many different parts that must be assembled on-site, and some trade show podiums that claim to be lightweight weigh as much as 44 pounds. ProProducts™ Portable Podiums have vast advantages over all other portable lightweight podiums (including trade show podiums) on the market because:


There are very few portable podiums that fold. Most of them must be assembled and disassembled, and they are usually six to seven inches thick when packed. Stick-like lecture platforms may fold, but they have no features and are still about four inches thick when folded. In contrast, ProProducts™ Portable Podiums are made all in one piece and fold down to a mere 1.65 inches. This slim size makes them easy to transport in the trunk of a car or even store behind a door.


Acrylic, glass and pressboard are very heavy, and yet these are the materials from which most podiums are made. These podiums and trade show podiums can weigh anywhere from 30-300 pounds. ProProducts™ Portable Podiums, on the other hand, are made of an aluminum alloy that is both strong and lightweight. This metal is the same material that is used in the aerospace industry, and it enables the ProLectern™ to weigh only 18 pounds and the ProPresenter™ to weigh less than nine. In spite of this light weight, however, both of these products are incredibly sturdy.


Lightweight podiums and trade show podiums generally only have storage space directly on top. This means that computers, projectors and briefcases must be placed all around the speaker, which gives him the appearance of being disorganized and unprofessional. In addition, it creates the risk of expensive equipment being damaged by spills. The ProLectern™ solves this problem by including a cabinet right inside. This cabinet folds up like the rest of the podium, but it has enough space to hold several different pieces of equipment at once. In addition, all ProProducts™ Portable Podiums have cup holders.


Very few portable podiums and trade show podiums allow you to print your organization's name, logo, web address and message on them. Your podium is the ideal place to put this information, however, since your guests are likely going to be looking it the entire time you are speaking. ProProducts™ Portable Podiums allow you to create a lasting impression by customizing your podium to your business.
