You’ve chosen the show to exhibit at based on the potential ROI. You’ve ordered your custom graphics and trade show display. You’ve created a timeline for travel, navigating the trade show area only to realize you need to add more time just to set-up your booth. Hiring a trade show manager can help alleviate the added stress of booth set-up and take down. This allows you to focus on preparing for and interacting with potential clients.

You could have your display delivered to you, and then need to figure out how to store it properly. If you choose to participate in events away from your home area then you’ll need to ship your display. Which shipping service should you use? Which one is best for your area and will they handle your trade show accessories and display properly?

When you arrive at a show, how much extra time do you need to budget in order to receive, transport and set-up your display? This is valuable time you could be spending interacting with other exhibitors or early customers.

You’ve now spent a full show putting forth maximum effort to garner new clients. You’ve shared your business with event-goers, handed out paraphernalia and are now looking at your trade show display which has to be cleaned and stored properly so it is ready to set-up for the next show. Better save some steam to complete this task!
