Working in the trade show and event industry for the past few years, APG Exhibits has learned what exhibitors are looking for in a great trade show shop. Every exhibitor wants to purchase from a company that is reputable with competitive prices and great customer service. For new exhibitors that may be shopping around for new trade show displays, here are a few things you should consider before purchasing from any trade show display distributor.
Three basic qualities you want to see in a great trade show shop:
1. Competitive Pricing
One of the most common ways to find a great price on trade show displays is by searching for them on Google. Several reputable companies will be at the top of the list, but many of those companies are paying big bucks to be at the top of the Google list for “trade show displays.” Many of the costs these companies incur will be passed down to the customer in the cost of their trade show displays. However, exhibitors can often find another trade show shop that carries many of the same or similar trade show displays further down in the Google list for a much lower price.
When shopping online for a trade show shop, it can be difficult to tell which online distributor has a strong reputation and which does not. However, if you search on websites like Manta.com for company information you should be able to find several testimonials and reviews. Exhibitors can find 15 recommendations for APG Exhibits on Manta.
3. Great Products
When shopping for trade show displays online, exhibitors don’t have the opportunity to personally examine products from an online trade show shop. So can an exhibitor identify quality products? One of the best ways to tell the quality of trade show displays online is by checking on the warranties available. Many of the products available on APGTradeShowDisplays.com have a lifetime warranty on any hardware malfunctions. You can find the warranty information in the product descriptions under Product Descriptions.
If you’re still unsure about the quality of an online trade show shop, give them a call! If the company is reputable, they will have a variety of contact options. APG can be contacted by phone, email, instant message or through any social media profile. The employees should be fairly knowledgeable about the products and be able to help exhibitors find a trade show display to fit most any needs.
