We have a brief checklist for some of the things to remember when planning an exhibition and an exhibition stand contractor. Do contact us today for further advice because we are bound to be able to save you money and advise on how we can store stands and reuse them each year with different styling so that you get more from your investment.
 
1.  Be clear on what your marketing objectives are for the exhibition. Is it brand awareness, showing a presence, gathering sales leads or meeting existing customers on the stand.  Remember that in advance of your exhibition you can promote your stand to existing customers or it is an ideal time to send out invitations to prospective clients. 
 
2.  Selecting the best exhibition contractor is the most vital things you can do.  Has the exhibition contractor many years experience, design capability, large purpose built storage and assembly workshops and their own transport fleet?  Remember that to make the most of an exhibition you simply must use an established contractor with many years of experience who can give you advice and guide you through how to make the most of your exhibition.
 
3.  Can your exhibition contractor provide testimonials and references from past customers and do they have a management team who will ensure that everything runs smoothly?  You should choose an exhibition contractor who has extensive design capabilities so that you can view visuals which show precisely how your exhibition will look before the stands are built.
 
4.  It is crucial that your exhibition stand contractor has a good reputation within the industry as your brand and your business depends upon it.  At Oakmace we can provide references, a portfolio and have dedicated workshops and teams to manage every step of the process guaranteeing your success.
 
5.  Ensure that your exhibition contractor has the correct insurance and that they comply with all the relevant health and safety regulations which are required at the exhibition venue.
 
6.  Does your exhibition stand contractor have enough storage to store your stands when not being used?  By storing stands we can save costs and it allows the style of your stand to be adapted to future needs this saving you costs.
 
7.  Does your exhibition stand contractor have its own dedicated transport fleet?  If not remember that relying in third party transport companies could easily result in the deadline of getting the stands delivered and installed in time.  At Oakmace we have our own dedicated fleet of transport vehicles and our installation team are highly experienced in working within the tight deadlines needed to build and install exhibitions and so you will have no concerns about some companies who rely upon general transport companies who will not be familiar with the deadlines and special handling required to deliver exhibition stands safely.
 
8. Does your exhibitions contractor have CAD and rendering services?  By seeing exact renderings of how your exhibition stand is going to look before they are built is important because it means that the design can be tailored to your exact requirements in advance of the stand being built.  At Oakmace we have a high quality CAD exhibition design service using the latest software so we can provide you with exact dimensional drawings and renderings in advance of the stand being built. 
 
9.  Does your exhibition stand contractor have large enough workshops to assemble and build your stands?  At Oakmace we have large workshops which can handle any size exhibition and so you can view the exhibition stand fully assembled in our workshops in advance of the exhibition.
