Top Tips for Saving Money on Your Trade Show Display: Part 3

Avoid Hidden Trade Show Exhibitor Shipping Costs

In our last post, we discussed how to save money on your trade show display utilizing lightweight trade show materials. Below we’re highlighting tips for saving money on trade show shipping and labor costs and how to reduce your overall time, effort and energy, even headaches, at your event.

Avoid Hidden Trade Show Display Costs with Shipping

Trade Show exhibitors face many challenges in terms of unexpected shipping costs, set up costs, and staying on budget.

No one wants to pay extra for shipping costs and set up at a trade show and for many who don’t plan ahead for their trade show display, they may fall victim to extra expenses, including the dreaded “drayage factor” expenses.

What is Drayage? Drayage is essentially the transport of goods over a short distance––in this case, between your carrier’s vehicle and your booth space at a trade show or event. In a nutshell, drayage costs themselves are dependent upon a number of factors, including labor rates at your event, how you pack and ship your freight, and the particulars of your booth itself. That’s why it’s important to consider working with lightweight materials that are easy and quick to assemble.

With the Xylea® Wood Trade Show Exhibit System, there are no extra costs! We’ll help you select the best trade show display solution for your business and even help calculate expected shipping costs. Because we’ve pre-measured our materials and have calculated the weights and sizes of our shipping containers, we can accurately predict what your shipping costs will be, taking less room during actual shipping with our flattened boxes, and with our lightweight materials, it’ll be super easy for you to transport your exhibit materials on site.
