This is a portable stage backdrop that makes a big impression in any size venue!

Measuring an impressive 17ft wide the 17x8 portable backdrop from Shows To Go Backdrops is like coming into a venue with a portable billboard. The extra large size is ideal for touring performing artists who want a large portable stage set (put 2 or 3 together to fill the width of large theaters), and for anyone who wants a graphic banner display that cannot be ignored.

The self-contained backdrop system can be set-up in less than 2 minutes by one person. No tools are needed, and no parts to assembly. Just expand the aluminum frame, attach a few velcro tabs on the curtain and you are ready for show time. Packing up is just as fast, making it an easy backdrop display solution when you are doing multiple events in the same day.

The 17 foot backdrop is not for everyone, but if you want to fill a large space with your custom graphic or message, than this is a hands-down winner. The finished display is much more modern and crisp looking than a pipe and drape system, or vinyl banner on a tripod style stand. There are no supports that show in our systems - just your image, front and center. The depth of the entire display is less than 1 foot (9 inches to be exact), so it takes up a minimal amount of valuable floor / stage space. The backdrop is engineered to be self-standing without the need to tie it down or add any weights for support.

Be sure to check out our custom photo gallery to see some of the large portable displays we have created for clients around the world. The 17x8 backdrop has been used by the New York City Ballet as a backdrop for lobby photos, motivational school assembly speakers, a Grammy Award Winning musician, churches for youth ministry events, and by Fortune 500 companies for conventions and meetings. The possibilities are endless when you "Think Big" with Shows To Go Backdrops.
