How to Choose an Exhibition Stand Design Company
With so many exhibition stand design companies out there it can be difficult to know which one to go for and which one will be the best at turning your exhibiting idea into reality. In this article, we outline 5 factors you need to take into consideration when choosing a company to design and build your exhibition stand.
1. Relevant Industry Experience
Who else has the company worked with? Do they have experience working with anyone else in your industry? Many exhibition stand design companies either specialise in a specific industry or work in a range of different industries. So does the company you’re looking at have experience working in your industry or a related field?
Relevant experience means that that company will understand what works best in terms of function, materials, design, and layout for your industry and know how to design something that resonates with your audience. Plus, they will have knowledge of the show you may be exhibiting at so can give you a competitive advantage. You should check out their portfolio and list of clients to see if they have worked with any renowned names in your industry.
2. Portfolio of Work
What is the company’s work like? Do you like their other work? View the company’s portfolio to get an idea of their designs and the stands they have created for other businesses to assess whether they could do the same for you.
Is there anything in the portfolio that aligns with your ideas and want them to produce something similar for you? Will they be able to match your criteria and turn your idea into reality? Design is subjective, so examine whether they consistently deliver high-quality stands that create impact and achieve results.
What services does the company offer? Will they understand your brief and know what you’re trying to achieve with your stand?
The best exhibition stand companies offer a full exhibition stand service in-house including planning, design, install, build, project management, graphics, construction, transport, and logistics.
Also research what types of exhibition stand they offer, such as custom-built stands, modular stands, and event environments, and make sure they are tailored to suit your requirements, aspirations, and budget.
You need to ensure your exhibition stand provides value for money and is within your budget so make sure your company of choice offers this in terms of pricing.
Remember that cheaper is not always better, especially when it comes to quality. Be clear on what you are getting for your money and make sure the company you are working with can justify all of their costings. A good company should be able to build you a stand that both matches your requirements and is suited to your budget.
Testimonials will give you a good idea of a company’s reputation and track record through what their past customers say about them.
Ask for the company’s client testimonials to gain an insight and understanding of their quality of service, their approach and process, level of customer service, whether they achieved the aim, whether they hit the deadline, how closely they followed the brief, if the customer was happy with the finished product, and if it performed well at the exhibition.
