A successful trade show isn’t always about who spent the most money, but rather who was better at it. Here are some tips that will allow you to do so effectively, without breaking the bank.
Purchase Your Displays from the Source
Very few online trade show display shops own a manufacturing facility or warehouse. Their business is strictly reselling with substantial markup. At DoTradeshow, we build our displays and print graphics in-house, and we have a large warehouse of inventory. This allows to pass on savings to our customers. It pays to buy factory direct from DoTradeshow. We are the industry expert in trade show displays and large format graphics. Check out our About Us page for more information.
Go with a Portable Trade Show Display
Portable trade show displays will save you lots of money in the long run due to their low costs of ownership. You can ship them in smaller boxes vs. large crates, and you can transport, set up and tear down yourself instead of paying someone a fortune to do so at the convention center. Some ideal booth displays include pop up displays and retractable banner displays. These displays are highly versatile for different size booth spaces and you can easily replace your graphics with minimal costs.
