Best of Show Award!

Congrats to our client Clarus Glassboards on their Best of Show award from the Metrocon Expo & Conference in August. The clean and bold design included fabric backwall graphics, center pedestal with 42″ monitor, and the engaging “Claricature” Artists they are known for at shows, all together made the attendee experience very memorable!

The overall all achievement was very impactful and the design of the booth made it a flawless setup & dismantle and by far the lightest weight display we’ve ever used.

Do it myself vs turn-key service?

What’s the major difference between managing your exhibit services vs. outsourcing it? The answer is simple, What’s your time worth? Do you have 2-3 days to dedicate to show preparations?

The major advantage of a turn-key solution is that the exhibit house will handle all the service orders, logistics and coordination for you for a fee. If you are not familiar with show services and have not reviewed an exhibitor manual – gathering information and evaluating options could take between 3-4 hours. Then you have to check all the deadlines and build a timeline. Then there is the task of placing the show service orders like electrical, cleaning  and labor. Last is coordinating shipping and logistics before and after the show. This can all become overwhelming and it’s a process that can take, like we mentioned,  2-3 solid days.

Here are a few considerations:

What’s a Modular Exhibit?

Modular exhibits are usually designed from from “off the shelf” structural components. The unique designs typically can consist of panels, extrusions, fabric, framing and often some custom-fabricated items. While a wide range of designs can be created, you are working with a set number of parts to choose from. Often a modular display is the “next step up” from a pop-up or panel portable display, and will pack into molded shipping containers.  Depending on your needs, a modular exhibit may give you the flexibility to accommodate your specific trade show needs. With the wide range of flexibility in modular components, creating a custom modular solution will often yield a unique design at a fraction of the cost of a custom-built display.
