Exhibition Stand Frames – Considerations to Make

When it comes to selecting the right exhibition stand for your company, one of the essential things that you will need to consider is the type of frame that you go for. Not all exhibition stand frames are the same at all, so it is a good idea to consider all of your options to ensure that you make the best decision for your company and the employees that you will be sending to any exhibitions or conferences. 

Lightweight

This is a critical factor that you will want to give careful consideration to. Unless you have a company van that you can spare to transport your exhibition stand to conferences, then you need to be able to get it there by one of two means. The first is to have it couriered to the venue, and then, of course, picked up and returned to your premises. The second is for employees who are attending the conference to take it with them. Exhibition stands can be bulky. If they are heavy as well, then couriering them can become expensive. This is especially true if you need to ship them to a conference abroad. If you are relying on employees to get it there, then a lightweight stand will be much easier to put into a car and then unload. It is also important to consider the difficulties that might be experienced by your employees moving a heavier stand around at a venue. 

Easy to assemble

Exhibition stands can look stunning when they are fully assembled. But if you have ever seen one being put up, you will soon see that underneath that smooth, well-designed exterior lies a complex framework that can be anything but easy to erect. It usually takes skill and coordination, and a couple of people to put the framework together that will hold those all-important graphics in place. Fingers may be squashed, tempers frayed, and metaphorical battles fought in order to assemble an exhibition stand. So, when you start your search, check how easy it is to assemble - your employees will thank you!

Simple to transport

We have already touched on this consideration, but it really is important enough to mention again. Bulky and heavy exhibition stands are not easy to transport. Consider how many exhibitions you are likely to attend in a year and do some rough costings on courier costs. Remember you will need to courier it both to and from an exhibition and you may even want to attend conferences abroad depending on your client base. 

If you have access to a company van that you can use for this task, then obviously it will be simpler to transport your exhibition stand around.

Modular

A modular display booth is one that is made up of a number of components that interlock. It can easily be assembled and dismantled without the need for a huge number of tools. A self-build modular display booth can be reconfigured a number of different ways to fit any size of exhibition area. You can even put parts of it up on their own, making it easier to attend smaller events with a smaller exhibition stand. This can be done without the need to adapt any of the components, meaning that you have a very cost-effective solution that is incredibly versatile. This is an excellent choice for any company who plans to exhibit at a number of shows during the course of one year. Being able to vary how you set up your exhibition stand allows you the flexibility to do things the way you want to suit the space you have. The initial cost might be more than some other stands available, but you will save money in the long run.

Innovative designs

One thing that you almost certainly want from your exhibition stand is to have something innovative. Whether this means that you utilise a tension fabric system with some element of lighting included behind your graphic, or even a lightbox, or a cleverly put together demo point, it is a good idea to think about what you really want from your exhibition stand. Contacting a company who specialises in innovative stands can be a great place to start. They will be able to look at the type of events you are planning on attending, your budget and any constraints such as transport and work with you to create an innovative design that will really help to showcase your company to its best advantage.
