Visionary Designs Exhibits — Summer Sales Tips #8

July 20th, 2017 COMMENTS

Customization and Personalization

Many trade show exhibitors don’t consider a custom exhibit, either because of the expense or the design process. They view “custom” as large elaborate islands or heavy and complicated inlines. And custom exhibits can be all three. However, that doesn’t have to be true.

There’s also a perception that custom is always a “brand new” idea. In reality, many custom designs start from a previous successful design and are customized or personalized to fit the client’s trade show marketing goals. That’s the basic concept of Visionary Designs. Start with a successful design and then alter it to each client’s requirement.

The exhibitor ends up with a upscale, personalized exhibit at a price less than a “custom exhibit.”

Rentals Exhibit are the Smart Choice

Rental exhibits are the single fastest growing segment of trade shows and events. So what’s driving this? To no one’s surprise, exhibitors are being asked to do more with smaller budgets. In the past, that meant a smaller exhibit or a reduced trade show schedule. Not anymore. Rental designs are more flexible than ever. Exhibitors can now achieve a customized look without purchasing a custom exhibit, depending on the rental exhibit supplier.

Classic Rental Solutions has the largest rental inventory in North America with designs ranging from inlines to islands and from monitor stands to charging stations. All can be personalized to meet the most demanding marketing requirements.
