What You Need To Know About Renting an Exhibit

Whether you are new to trade shows or are an experienced exhibitor, you might be weighing your options – should you rent your next exhibit or should you buy? Renting is the obvious choice if you plan on attending just one trade show, but you might be surprised to learn that renting exhibits may be helpful for more than that once scenario. Before you rent, though, there are a few important things to keep in mind.

Benefits of Renting a Trade Show Exhibit: The Freedom to Adapt

Renting an exhibit is a cost-effective, hassle-free alternative to buying, storing, maintaining, and reconfiguring a permanent one. It allows you the freedom to adjust the design to fit your specific marketing needs, schedule, and budget. If you attend multiple shows a year, a rental exhibit provides a fresh look and feel for each event. Rental exhibits are the perfect fit for every venue.

Renting also gives you a chance to experiment with different exhibit sizes, layouts, and design elements that you may wish to use in a permanent exhibit someday.

What to Know Before You Rent

Find out if the provider includes storage

Full-service display providers also include storage and maintenance of your exhibit, which can mean reduced storage cost and space-saving. 

Find out if the display provider offers a variety of booth sizes

Exhibit booths are available in a wide range of sizes. Determine the size requirements of your booth, and find out if the display provider can design the booth according to your specifications.

Develop a detailed request

The more information you can provide about your organization’s needs and expectations, the better. Supply a hard copy of or link to any stylebooks detailing your company’s preferred fonts, colors, logos, etc. Include show goals and information about any specific electrical needs and wire management your organization may have.
