Are you planning an event but unsure about what size TV to rent? In this article, we’ll look at 49”, 60”, and 80” TVs and discuss what types of events they are best suited to.  

Quick Answer: An 80” TV is best for ballrooms and large events where you can place one at either side of the stage. 60” and 49” TVs work great for trade show booths; the optimal size depends on how much of a focal point you want them to be.


To cover all of the eventualities you might face, it’s essential that you hire a TV with a good variety of inputs. What inputs should you be looking out for?

  • HDMI
  • VGA
  • USB

49” TV

A 49” TV is perfect for an 8×8 or 10×10 trade show booth. It’s big enough to make an impact and display your content properly, but it isn’t so big that it takes over the whole booth.

60” TV

A 60” TV is also an excellent option for trade show booths, but it does take up a bit more space. It can work really well at a tech conference or similar trade show where you’re heavily reliant on the display to showcase what you do.

80” TV

80” TVs work really well in ballrooms for wedding slideshows or dinner meetings with corporate technical content. 60” TVs also work in this capacity but are less effective in larger spaces.

Benefits of TVs

TVs are a great solution for situations where there is a high amount of ambient light. Often, a projector and screen aren’t viable in these environments as they just aren’t bright enough. Their small footprint means TVs take up hardly any floor space.
