Questions to Ask your Trade Show Booth Designer When Choosing on Custom or Modular Exhibition Stand

Questions to ask from your Trade Show Booth Designer

Ques.How much will the Trade Show booth weigh?

Ans. Among too many reasons on why to choose custom exhibition stand vs. modular exhibition stands, the most important reason is the logistic cost that most of the exhibitors consider as their top priority. And when it comes to thinking about logistics, modular stands always are a preferred choice for the light-weight material used to build them and the factor of less experimentation with the designing aspect. They are as simple as that you roll them over, and they are dismantled. However, when it comes to unique value, the custom exhibit stand always wins over in the distinguished designing abilities and flexibility given to the designer. So, as per your budget and requirements, you must ask your trade show booth designer to give you the best solution.

Ques. How will the shipment be packed?

Ans. Confirm with your trade show booth designer if your stand will be marked as checked, oversized, or carry-on luggage. If you can ship the exhibit on your own (as luggage) to the trade show venue, you can save on a lot of big bucks of shipping cost. And if you can decide the exhibits shipping mode, then you will also in advance know the possible challenges, concerns, and limitations. It is always better to ask questions about the materials being used for building the exhibit so that the weight is reduced and cut down. If the materials are hollow or made of materials like aluminum which are lighter in nature, then it will be easier to transport. So your trade show designer must know it all to ensure that they give you the best service.

Ques.Will the exhibit be reconfigurable?

Ans. Some exhibits open to an unchangeable size, and others feature components that can be modified.

So, checking on the reconfiguration of the exhibit is very essential and how many numbers of times this exhibit can be used is also important for the exhibitor.

Ques. What will be the delivery TAT for the exhibit?

Ans. While these questions may seem obvious, but having a clarity of thought process and planning accordingly is essential for your trade show to become a success story. If the exhibit delivery TAT is delayed, then how will you be able to achieve the desired ROI for your company? So in advance confirm with your exhibitor about the number of days the exhibit will need to be finally erected.
