The Pros and Cons of Rental Trade Show Displays

The Pros and Cons of Rental Trade Show Displays
Share this:

If you’re considering attending a trade show this year, you need to decide how you’ll acquire an exhibit for your business. Every vendor or company on the show floor needs a display, but how they obtain these displays is unique for everyone. Some companies choose to buy their own displays, while others choose rental options. Here are some of the pros and cons of renting a trade show display for your event.

Pros of Trade Show Rentals

There are many benefits of selecting trade show rental displays for your company’s event. First, rental displays allow you to have flexibility with your booth designs rather than sticking to one design for all future trade show attendances. Rental displays will also cost you less in storage and maintenance. Since you don’t permanently own the booth, you won’t need to find a place to store it and won’t need to maintain it between events. Some trade show rental services, such as West Coast Exhibit, also handle the setup and tear down process for your rental display.

Cons of Trade Show Rentals

Because they are rentals, these types of display booths typically offer fewer customization options. While you can still customize your logos, interactive features, and other elements, you will not see the same customization as you would with a fully fabricated booth.

Some rental trade show displays are less expensive upfront, but the costs of ordering rental booths can add up if you attend many shows throughout the year. If you’re looking for a more permanent booth that you can call your own, West Coast Exhibit also offers custom exhibit design and fabrication services.

How To Choose a Type of Display for Your Business

A rental trade show display may be ideal for your business if you attend exhibitions on an infrequent or random basis. Rental booths are also ideal if you’re looking for a bit more flexibility in your schedule and ordering process. West Coast Exhibit’s trade show exhibit rentals provide customization options for clients looking for flexible display options. Our experts can help you choose the right booth rental or manufacturing options for your business’s needs.

Now that you know the pros and cons of rental trade show displays, you can decide whether buying or renting is best for your business.
