While most companies give up their show planning until the last minute, those who get the most out of a show are practically done months in advance. You need to allow a few weeks to make sure all the subtleties are planned; Factors like your staging (designing or making sure your props are in acceptable condition) and making sure your presentation materials work optimally for you are essential.
6. How long does it take to assemble?
Newcomers to the trade fair should be careful: the installation of a trade fair presence takes much longer than you can imagine. Ideally, you should do a test run so that you know exactly how long it will take to set up your trade fair.
5. Memorize the schedule
Knowing the schedule inside out is important if you want to get the most out of the show. You can then plan larger events during the day. You should also get to know the more logistical factors such as: For example, what times the carpet will be laid, electrical outputs provided and other important functions installed around your exhibition.
4. Should you send your exhibit early?
The early dispatch of your exhibition design has a number of advantages; This not only means that you and your employees will arrive stress-free during the day, but also that parts of your exhibit will not be damaged during transport.

2. Choose the exhibition package that is most beneficial to you
Choosing the right exhibition package is not just about cutting your costs. The more expensive lots are more expensive for a reason, so it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of cost versus land placement.

Trade shows in any industry can cost a significant amount. So once you’ve paid for your property, don’t waste the opportunity on anything less than the best exhibition.
