As a trade show booth manufacturer, our mission is to provide lightweight, affordable, easy-to-assemble trade show display booths that stand out from the crowd and help our clients succeed!
What should I look for in a trade show display exhibit company?
Exhibiting a booth at a trade show or event is multi-faceted. You should look for a company that provides not only trade show displays and trade show graphics, but offers a full range of services, including exhibit rentals, storage, shipping and installation. It will save you stress and money in the long-run by finding a supplier of trade show booths to partner with in a long-term relationship. While some online retailers might be able to sell you a cheap display, they won’t be able to provide you with custom trade show exhibit designs or assist you with emergency situations when you’re out on the show floor. Infinity Exhibits also provides our clients with turnkey tradeshow solutions in addition to the displays and exhibits.
What are the most important considerations in planning a trade show booth that stands out on the convention floor?
With so many companies competing for your potential client’s attention at a trade show, it is important for your trade show booth to look attractive and draw attention, clearly showing WHO YOU ARE and WHAT YOU’RE SELLING. You may only have a few seconds to grab a potential client’s attention before they’ve moved on to the next exhibitor. Attractive displays, bold messages, and large format graphics help grab the prospects attention! Infinity Exhibits has professional designers to assist you with eye catching graphics, stand out logo representation, and ensuring that your booth is designed specifically for YOUR target market. Contact us now for a free 3D rendering so we can assist you in the design of a booth that WILL stand out from the crowd on the convention floor.
How do I choose a trade show display?
The first step in deciding the appropriate display for your company is determining the size of the booth you will be using. It is also important to consider if you will need to expand or break down your display for future shows. This will narrow down the available displays to fit your needs. The second step is determining your budget for the display. The display can often be the least expensive component of your show but it is the most important to your company’s results. You can always call us to discuss what the best option will be to maximize your ROI. Infinity Exhibits consultants have over 20 years experience in the business. We are here to assist you not only with the display, but also with the implementation of your tradeshow strategy.
What percentage of my event budget should I dedicate to actual trade show booths?
The industry average to purchase individual portable trade show booths is $100-$150 per square foot for larger displays. For example, 20×20 displays would cost between $40,000 and $60,000. Exhibit Rentals are about 35% of the hardware purchase cost.
Your event budget allocation will vary, but according to EXHIBITOR Magazine, here’s how the average trade show budget breaks down:
Space = 33%
Trade Show Booths & Graphics (construction/refurbishment) = 18%*
Travel & Expenses = 18%
Show Services (electricity, cleaning, drayage, I&D) = 12%
Shipping = 9%
Promotion = 8%
Miscellaneous = 2%
In addition, you can estimate your total event budget by multiplying the cost of your space by three. For example, the average floor space costs $21 per square foot. So, for a 20×20 floor space rental expect to pay around $8,400. The budget for that event would be $25,200.
*This figure is the display cost per show, not the total investment to purchase trade show displays and trade show graphics. When you purchase a display, you obviously plan to use it multiple times to get the most out of your investment. To determine the display cost per show, you’ll need to estimate how many years you will use the display and how many shows you will go to each year. The average lifetime of a display is five years. For graphics, the average lifetime is one year. Your display and graphic replacement needs may vary depending on how many shows you plan to attend. The more shows you go to, the sooner you may need to purchase new trade show booths. Infinity Exhibits has professionals that have been in the business for 20+ years to assist you in figuring out your costs/budget requirements. Due to our in-house manufacturing, Infinity Exhibits can save you money throughout the lifetime of your booth.
How do I rent an exhibit?
Go to Rentals and Used Displays to search from numerous priced rental solutions. Infinity Exhibits designers can easily modify existing rental kits or draw from the extensive inventory of rental components to create new designs specific to your needs.
When should I order a display?
We suggest that you order your trade show displays well in advance of your next trade show so that the display can be available for effective use at the appropriate time. Don’t wait until the last minute!
How do I order from Infinity Exhibits?
It’s simple! We recommend you call us to order your product as opposed to using our online shopping system. Most of the displays we carry have multiple options that can be unclear and confusing. We verify every aspect of your order over the phone to make sure that you are receiving the correct product. Our sales staff is not paid a commission so you will never have to worry about being “sold to” or pushed to buy more items. Our main focus is to make sure you purchase a display that is appropriate for your needs. We will even recommend lower cost items if we feel they will produce the same results for your company’s marketing campaign.
What are other considerations I should keep in mind when shopping for a display?
Be thorough! You should shop other sites and talk to other professionals before making your final decision. We highly recommend you avoid shopping purely based on price. There are many products that are very low quality and may appear similar to other high quality products. Always be sure to call a company to get a feel for how their customer service will be throughout the purchasing process. You will want to ask direct questions like “who manufactures this product” and “why should I buy from you”. When getting a quote, make sure there are details on it such as what’s included in the price and the name of the product. You also want to be aware of any hidden fees or handling charges. Infinity Exhibits prides itself on the best customer service in the Industry. When you purchase a display from Infinity Exhibits, you are not only purchasing directly from the manufacture which will save you money, but you will be getting the personal service that comes along with it.
What does Made in USA really mean?
According to the Federal Trade Commission, “Made in USA” means that “all or virtually all” of the product was made in America. The FTC established and enforces the standard to ensure compliance by business and industry and confirm consumer confidence. For a “Made in USA” claim to be made accurately, all significant parts, processing and labor that go into the product must be of U.S. origin. Products should not contain any — or only negligible — foreign content, the FTC stipulates. Infinity Exhibits manufacturing facility is located in Sarasota, Florida where it employs all of its workers. Not only do we manufacture in the USA, but we purchase materials only made in the USA!.
