PROJECT EXECUTION

Here is a look into what are involved behind the scenes. 

 

Think of the last show you’ve been to. The exhibit hall was spotless, with air conditioning adjusted to the perfect comfortable temperature.

Have you ever wondered how the convention center looks like before and after the show? Let me tell you, it’s not a pretty sight! In fact, it is more like a war zone with mountains of crates, cartons, furniture, parts, flooring, paint, and debris scattered as far as the eye can see. You can never reach where you are going in a straight path, you’ve got to make zig-zags and u-turns, walk over and duck under anything that’s blocking your way. At the same time, looking out for cranes working above your head and staying out of forklifts’ way. The massive cargo doors are always open during non-exhibit hours – you will truly appreciate having air-conditioner during blazing hot summer days in Las Vegas or freezing sub zero winter days in Chicago. If you are ever so lucky, you’ll get to listen to someone testing their A/V equipment, where the sound of their demo video blasts into the air on a seemingly endless loop. Not to mention the foul smell of trash if your booth is situated close to the dumpster shoot. It is an experience you should check out at least once – a symphony of all senses.

Modern Day Bazaar

A trade fair (trade show, trade exhibition, or expo) as defined by Wikipedia, is an exhibition organized so that companies in a specific industry can showcase and demonstrate their latest products and services, meet with industry partners and customers, study activities of rivals, and examine recent market trends and opportunities.

Installation & Dismantle Process

Here is a glimpse of the Installation & Dismantle process of one of our 10×20 Inline Exhibit. Our onsite supervisor typically arrives at least 2 days prior to the first day of the show. He makes sure all properties have arrived intact and electrical outlets are laid according to spec. There are 3,600+ of exhibitors spread over 2.47 million net sq ft at large international shows such as Consumer Electronic Show. Imagine the logistics involved and the possibility of having your crates misplaced. With an average labor rate of at least $100/hr/man, it is crucial for the onsite supervisor to make the right calls at the right time for the entire process to go as smooth as possible to ensure that you will not rack up a huge labor bill. His most important job is to produce a completed booth that exceeds your expectations.
