agree  TonyTK: or perhaps "display models" (which I don't like much either, actually). Can't think of a decent term that would cover what are apparently exclusive conference tables. "Samples" possibly sounds a bit small.

agree  Dr Andrew Read: Here's a slight revision: isn't "display pieces" better? "Models" sounds more like a machine or a car...
