If your business is attending an upcoming event or trade show then believe us when we say putting down the money and hiring a team of exhibition stand contractors will be a worthwhile investment, rather than say purchasing a “pop up” or “banner” stand on a budget. You want and need your business to stand out, you need to draw in and grab those leads and you certainly don’t want to fade into the background among a pile of companies offering a similar if not the same service.
If you’re on the fence about the potential expenditure, look at it in a sense of expansion; you are expanding your business to a wider audience and benefiting from fantastic exposure with the opportunities to secure new clients, new joint ventures and much more. Not to mention any experienced contractor should be able to implement your budget, ideas and goals effortlessly.
A properly designed exhibition stand will make a bold statement about your organization and invite people to see what you and your business are all about. It is very easy to be lost adrift in a sea of sameness and to get noticed at a large event; you need a display that is unique, eye catching, and will generate traffic. As you begin planning for your next expo, get in touch with a contractor and let them introduce you to what a custom built stand can do for your organization.
Many large companies and organizations are turning to custom exhibition stand contractors to make their displays pop. By hiring your own contractor, you can align you group with the major players in your market, garnering more attention and respect.
Modular exhibition stands are the perfect choice for those who need maximum flexibility and may not be able to afford a truly custom stand. They can be easily reconfigured and designed to fit into whichever space you have, are adaptable, and can be made to fit a wide range of budgets whiles still looking fantastic, of which has made them very popular amongst exhibiters.
These modular systems are easy to assemble, disassemble, and move with set costs lower than that of traditional/custom systems, making modular stands a more economical choice. Stand contractors will have a wide variety of styles from which to choose, or they can customize a modular system to fit the needs of your organization so have some confidence in that they will deliver.
If portability is important to you, emphasize this, and request that your exhibition stand contractors design a display that is at the same time striking and easy to transport. Organizations that must quickly move from one expo to the other will find this kind of stand system most beneficial, although most contractors these days will have the logistical capabilities to transport and erect anything, and of any size and complexity.
More traditional and truly custom exhibition stands are very sturdy, but generally built to be used for a one off/specific event. They can be the more expensive (and impressive) option. However, your stand contractors will have the ability to store for later use and if you really want a unique and custom exhibit even on a budget, it is worth requesting. Any experienced contractor will have the ability to design and build something unique to your budget (and many provide a free design and quotation). These large custom built exhibition stands are consistently impressive, but not usually very portable.
In this age of recycling, throwing out a large exhibition stand after one use can seem wasteful and irresponsible, not to mention you would be throwing away money. Having yours stored for later use can make them a more economically viable and ecologically friendly option. To help with portability and reuse, contractors should and will offer transportation between venues as part of their service.
Should you have the budget, ambition and need for a large multi-purpose space that can incorporate private meeting areas, storage rooms, reception areas, a mezzanine and more that are insulated from the noise and excitement of the exhibition floor, then you should consider a two-story exhibition stand. These double decker behemoths will always make a very large, bold and impressive statement about your organization. Not all exhibition stand contractors will have the experience or capability behind them to provide such a service, some won’t even offer it, but there are contractors out there that can, and produce you something spectacular so have a look around.
They will gladly design a two or even three-tiered system that will be functional as well as exceptional, making an awe-inspiring visual impact while offering practical working space during the exhibition.
Outdoor events and exhibition stands present their own set of challenges, but nothing that any group of exhibition contractors shouldn’t be well aware of. Such as having the knowledge to produce an exhibition stand able to withstand the effects of all types of weather.
Outdoor stands generally consist of a large marquee featuring the relevant logos, graphics and materials to your company. The internal walls can be printed with logos, product information, or anything else you might need, and they can also be designed with a locked internal storage area for personal belongings, samples or business literature. Contractors will also typically favor and implement a silent electric generator to be used to power audio/visual effects, lighting or temperature control.
Exhibition stands can be purchased or hired on an event by event basis, and custom built exhibition stands are generally offered for sale rather than for hire. Stands that are rented rather than purchased are generally portable or popup systems that are easy for the average person to assemble and disassemble.
Exhibition stand contractors offer a vast array of services for their clients with service typically beginning at the design stage. A designer or design team will assess your needs and come up with a unique and tailor maid concept specifically to you, of which can be adjusted and edited to your requirements. The stand can then be created and prepared for the required logistics and installation. Some event contractors can even provide additional services such as extra staff to help man your exhibit and for clients that are short on space, most will have a form of in house storage (if they don’t already insist on it).
Whether you need a custom, modular, portable or outdoor exhibition stand, or even a large two-tiered system, attending an event and investing in a team of exhibition stand contractors could be one of the best and biggest moves you make for you and your business.
