Custom built exhibition stands can make your exhibition stand out


When starting to plan an exhibition stand, there are three options in general for an exhibiton stand: system stands, custom built exhibition booths or reusable stands.


System stands are around 65% - 70% of the total construction. Custom built exhibition stands are 30% to 35% and reusable stands are around 2%. The main problem with the reusable stands is that they are expensive to create the reusable structure. The storage can be expensive too and there are expenses to transport and set up the booth the trade fair. Storage and build up are often 80% of the cost of a custom booth. And a multiple cost needed when comparing the expenses of a system stand.

To get a service on the fairground one of the efficient exhibition sales strategies can be to create a serious, friendly and welcoming exhibition stand, instead of an impressive, expensive stand monster.

Reusable stands

Quickly exhibitors will be disappointed with high costs, they need to administrate and organize the transport and storage when the build-up company often quits. The exhibition stand is after 3 years, used, old fashioned as the pre-build structure cannot be modernized.


System stands

A system exhibition stand is created with pre-built materials with panels fixed together. System stand construction has limitations regarding design options as the design needs to stay inside the limits of possibilities of the panel building. There are limitations to express the unique identity of a company as not the exact colors or shapes can be constructed because of the limitations of pre-build materials.
