You can make your trade show experience much easier by using a portable exhibit. Since you control everything related to transporting it and setting it up, you won't have to hire firms to for those things for you.
In contrast, a large exhibit requires you to rely on others to ship it and set it up - during which any number of problems can arise. For example, your exhibit could arrive late at the trade show, or not arrive at all.
But by transporting your portable trade show exhibit yourself, you avoid the need to deal with a freight company and keep track of bills of lading so you can trace your shipment or make a loss claim on a missing display.
Instead, you can simply bring your portable trade show exhibit right along with you, knowing where it is at all times, and bring it into the expo hall yourself when you arrive.
Your portable trade show booth is also safer from damage than larger displays, which may be punctured, scratched, or torn by machinery during transport and drayage. And although your booth repair kit may enable you to fix up minor scratches and dents yourself, how can you repair a forklift puncture hole in your display? Having portable displays that you can bring by yourself alleviates the possibility of this type of expo disaster.
Another advantage of a portable booth is that you can set it up by yourself fairly easily - which eliminates the potential headache of having a hired crew set up your display. A large display would require you to direct each crew member's part in setting it up and taking it down.
But your portable trade show exhibit can be put up by you alone, or by you with one assistant. Portable booth setup is quick and easy, and you can handle the whole procedure yourself. And taking down your booth after the expo is just as efficient when you're operating alone or with just one other person.
Although standard booths are beneficial in many ways, they don't necessarily bring any better trade show results than portable booths. And as far as preventing booth transportation and setup nightmares, nothing can beat a portable trade show exhibit.
