In the very last decade, trade show supplies and trade show equipments markets have gone through a dramatic increase, with pipe and drape and banners go more and more popular, the business within the trade show industry. But, you should be noted when you are working out your trade show budget, as they might be a little more than you have planned.
Trade show supplies
The trade show budget is usually more than you have calculated before because there are always "invisible cost" involved. Building trade show booth can be tricky and costly, basically when people are counting their cost, they ussually just adds up the basic cost of the booth, I.E. the cost of pipe and drape itself, what they failed to realize is that the setting and decorating will be costly too. Also, keep in mind that if the location of where the trade show event is far, and you had to ship all these items to there, you might want to take account of the transportation fee. This will be very high if you are having something planned overseas, as they usually cost very much.
Trade show Equipments
Then finally, there's installation, adjustment and maintenance. Usually they go unbudgeted, but any experienced trade show worker would tell you that they might cost a lot too, especially when you have to hire someone to do the work, since your trade show project is a large one, and the installation work can't simple be done with a few men.
