There are usually two options when you ship your display to a tradeshow. You can send your booth to "Advanced Warehousing" or to "Show Site." Clients often ask us the difference and why we would choose one over the other.
Option #1 is to ship to a warehouse operated by the official show carrier located near the show. This means you have to ship the display to their warehouse at least a few weeks in advance of the trade show move-in date. They usually start accepting shipments 30 days in advance up until about a week before the show move in.Read More

Writing about trade show design trends in this day and age is tough. I'm a bit stumped because, well, there have been no trade shows to establish anything that's trending yet. The whole format of a trade show could be shifting its shape and becoming something different. Virtual events were an excellent placeholder while large events were put on pause, but they won't last forever; in fact, events are beginning to open up again. Many hybrid event ideas have been developed and implemented quickly, and I think that the hybrid format will be here to stay too.Read More

There is the old saying that people do business with people they know, like, and trust. I continue to believe this to be true. When I reflect on my own business and personal life, I always feel a deeper connection and comfort level with someone I have met in person or spoken to over the phone.I started in business over 20 years ago, and a fundamental component of building a business relationship was through in-person meetings.

Early 2020 was shaping up to be a busy year in the trade show industry. Convention Centre expansions and new facilities, like the BMO Convention Centre Expansion, were being approved or construction continued, and business airline travel was climbing.

Your trade show booth space and more importantly, your trade show booth design, must attract the audience in 3 seconds - or you could lose a potential prospect.Read More
