The 20 Sales Tips in 20 Minutes Webinar with Harold Mintz.
According to Harold, “Back in the early 90’s I (Harold Mintz) was working for an exhibit manufacturer training salespeople around the country about the best way to sell to the live events industry. At the time, I had never taken a single course on how to sell. Never even read a book about it. I was simply winging it.
Since then, I’ve worked with and learned from numerous sales professionals and trainers. Now, with over 30 years of both sales and sales training experience, I feel more than equipped to share some of the greatest hits I’ve picked up along the way.”

Storage Rates Comparison Chart
Ever wonder what others charge for storage? We did too, so
we asked Classic Distributors to share their numbers. In exchange, we agreed to
publish the data anonymously and by region. Only those who sent us their rates
would receive the chart. They have since gotten a first draft.
The numbers are intriguing (to say the least) with a wide range
in charges. In addition, some distributors charge by sq. ft and others by cu.
ft. Others charge by crate or pallet regardless of the size.
If you would like to participate, contact Harold Mintz (email@example.com). Once you send us your detailed storage rates, we will add them to chart (anonymously and by region) and then provide you with a copy. We’re updating the chart in batches, so the next version will be available in mid to late July. Please send your rates within the next two weeks if you want to be included.
If you’ve ever wondered if you’re charging too much or too
little for storage, you’ll want to get your hands on these Storage Rate Comparisons.
Budget Portables Gallery
Not every exhibitor needs a counter, monitor, storage, or
even lights. Many just want an affordable display with fabric graphics and
portable assembly. For those exhibitors, we have 33 attractive and modular
Budget Portables — a new gallery in EDS. This gallery includes a wide range of designs including curves, peaks, and rectangles. All with beautiful SEG graphics and Classic’s legendary quality and packaging.
What’s even better… Symphony accessories can easily be
added. The client who “only wants” a backwall may also need a workstation,
literature tray, or graphic header. Clicking on the Symphony Accessories Guide
in the additional images makes choosing accessories easy. We’ve even included
the price of a second set of graphics on the most basic kits.
