There is something to owning all your own expo equipment. But when you think of how expensive it is including storage costs, a trade show display rental makes a lot of sense.
Exhibiting your services is a great way to build your clientele. Going to an expo is difficult enough because you have to worry about getting everything there. Add to it the cost of shipping, hotel rooms, meals and other expenses, and you are probably looking for ways to save money on your expo budget. While purchasing your own platform has its positives, if you only go to a handful of these shows a year, it really is an unnecessary expense. Fortunately, trade show display rental is a great way to efficiently use the budget.
First things first, if you are going to several of these expos every year then trade show display rental might be more expensive than purchasing your own. These platforms can be quite expensive. If you only go to one or two a year then that expense will never be recouped. Add to the loss of money the hassle of storage as some of these platforms can be quite large, up to 20 x 20, and if you own your own then you’ve got to find a place to store it. When you want to use it then you’ve got to clean it before you take it out in public.
Another great reason for a trade show display rental is size. Different expos have different size limitations. While one show will allow you to have a large exhibit, others might reduce your size by half. If that’s the case then you’ll have to own several different platforms to meet the needs of each expo that you visit. That’s an added expense in not only the purchase of the various platforms, but storage of them as well. Most companies simply don’t have storage for all of that equipment and renting a storage unit is an added expense. By hiring a platform for each fair, you can get the size you need without all of the hassle.
When you own your own exhibition platform you also have the added frustration of shipping it to the site you are attending. By using a trade show display rental company, you can allow them to deal with that for you. Many of these companies include shipping as part of the cost in your estimate. They will handle all of the necessary packaging and processing to get you the platform that you need by the time in which you need it. Some will even include assistance in set up in the fee, if you request it.
Unnecessary expenses, lack of storage space, and needing a variety of sizes in order to do what you need, create a hassle when owning your own exhibition platform. By using a trade show display rental company to assist you in getting the platform you need to the show that you need it to go to, you can cut down on the cost, worry less about storage, and never have to wonder if you’ve got the right size platform.
