Trade shows are hard work, between transportation, set up, closing down and hauling all the materials back. Not to mention the actual activities of the show, promoting your products and networking with your industry. You might be wondering if it’s worth hiring extra help for all the logistics and heavy lifting so that you can focus on bringing your A-game to the trade show.
With that in mind, let’s go over a few of the advantages and disadvantages of hiring a moving company.
Outline Your Budget
Trade shows are a great investment to expand your network, promote your products and get your name out there. That being said, as a company you should figure out exactly what you want to spend on the entire ordeal. You might find that the money you spend on the extra help moving and setting up might actually be worth it when it comes to the performance of your staff at the actual event. That energy can be spent on more worthwhile things.
Manage Your Logistics
Without a moving company, there are plenty of things you need to worry about when it comes to storing the materials, including your trade show booth, display and products. These things take up space and cannot always be transported in a car or even SUV. If you find that your trade show materials take up too much space, and you don’t have a way to transport them, then hiring a moving company might be in your best interest.
Review Your Time Table
Lack of time is the other main reason you might want to hire extra help for your trade show exhibition. Depending on how far away the show is and who is available for transportation and set up, you may just not have enough time to make it all work on your own. We can help with that department by taking responsibilities out of your hands and putting valuable time back into them.
