iPad kiosks are one or the most popular trade show accessories this year and for good reason. These portable, interactive devices have a plethora of apps for your specific needs such as, polling and reviews, contact/data collection, POS, reservations and scheduling, or even menus. The biggest challenge with displaying your iPad has always been keeping it from walking away. However, today’s iPad kiosks are designed with security in mind and also keep the same ease of use and portability characteristics that the iPad is know for.
Some questions that you should ask yourself when shopping for your iPad kiosk display are;
- Do I need Cable Management? Cable management will allow you to run power to your iPad without a tacky cord hanging loosely from your kiosk. (Note: Your standard iPad cord will not be long enough for most stands, some kiosks come with a 6ft. custom length cord and some don’t.)
- Do I want a clamshell with key access, to quickly get to my iPad or is a clamshell with security screws fine for me?
- Do I want users to have access to the home button, or not?
- Do I need to be able to bolt the iPad stand to the floor?
- Do I want the head to easily swivel from Portrait to Landscape?
- Do I need the height of the stand to be adjustable?
- Do I need a case for this kiosk display?
- Do I want to have custom graphics on this display?
- Will this kiosk accept my iPad? Some models of the iPad may not fit in all iPad kiosks.
- Is there accessibility to the front camera sight and head phones jack?
- Do I need the kiosk to have a brochure holder or key board shelf?

As you can image your iPad stand may work best in on the floor or it may work best on top of a table or counter, but why buy two displays? Now you don’t have to with our convertible iPad stand. Again this stand is a take off of the beloved Standard iPad kiosk but with some additional parts you can convert the floor unit into a handy tabletop display in minutes. The durable engineered aluminum means this stand will last a lifetime.

With all this adjust-ability this stand still is able to be set up in minutes. As a bonus this stand includes a rolling suitcase with foam insert for traveling.
You probably saw this coming but there’s no denying the Standard iPad Kiosk. It is one of the best kiosks available on the market.

The Pro kiosk has been around longer than some of the other iPad kiosks but it is still top of the line display and it’s elegant looks is attracting. The locking clamshell has all of the great features as the Standard Kiosk but what sets this kiosk apart from other stands is it’s rear compartment. The rear compartment houses an included surge protector for powering your iPad or other electrical component for your booth. The powder coated black or silver finish is complements the sleek lines of the the Deluxe kiosk.
