Once you have designed your booth to be the state-of-the-art marketing tool you want, your next concern is ensuring that it looks as good on the showroom floor as it did in the conception stage. Especially if you have a large booth, you know that making this happen requires that you put your Austin trade show installation in the hands of a qualified firm that specializes in I&D, or Installation and Dismantle. This type of firm has the training and experience to pull off the look you want and ensure that the craftsmanship used in re-creating your booth on the showroom floor is high quality.
Austin Trade Show Installation Not For The Faint Of Heart
Making sure this happens is not a job for just anyone. Installers need not only experience but also expertise with tools and heavy equipment. Large displays are often characterized by multiple parts, subdivisions to create rooms, Internet capabilities, and banners, signs, and shapes that may even hang from the ceiling. To put these things in place requires knowledge of using forklifts and power tools, along with good design sense.
For many years, some exhibitors had to make huge expenditures to get the booth in place. In many show sites throughout the country, union regulations were strict about who could perform the trade show installation, what tools they could use, how much time they could spend before trampling on toes, and even the amount of equipment used to do a job. Both large and small exhibitors felt the economic pinch. Small exhibitors who could easily handle installing their own modular or pop-up booths were restrained from spending more than a certain amount of time doing it before show labor had to get involved. Large exhibitors, who would never have thought of installing their huge island booth with ceiling riggings, had to pay multiple forklift operators for jobs that could be handled by one.
Fortunately, many of these regulations have been replaced by more reasonable requirements about labor and equipment. Installation of a mega booth is still a job that needs a mix of professionals with creativity, knowledge, tools and big machines. While venues always publish an information booklet that gives the name of their official show contractor to handle all services, you might want to find your own I&D specialist. These people must be certified by the show contractor, but hiring your own firm especially if they were the ones who designed your booth, gives you assurance that everything will be done right by trained, certified personnel.
