Plan for exhibition success
Part Three: Suppliers
So you have a clear exhibition strategy and have made realistic calculations about what you need. Now you can relax. Or can you?…
In our experience, many businesses book exhibitions without an adequate plan or consideration for the marketing materials they'll need. Frequently this leads to them to make panicked decisions at the last minute, which can lead to mistakes and poor quality materials. In this continuing advice series, we'll give you our top tips to ensure a successful exhibition.
Choose your suppliers carefully
We had a design client who'd asked a specialist printer whether they could deliver by a critical date. Their response?
"Yes I think we should be ok for that date…".
Words such as 'think' and 'should be' didn't exactly inspire confidence with our client as the deadline was pretty short! We spoke to one of our print partners and they were able to confirm they definitely could supply in time as long as they had the artwork by a specified date.
Whatever they are providing (graphic design, print, photography or anything else) a good-quality supplier will be able to give you assurances for delivery deadlines, and they'll have key date(s) they need you to meet as well. They'll be equally clear if they can't meet the date and explain why. in these situations, they'll work with you to provide alternative solutions to meet your deadline.
And whoever you choose, it shouldn't be about price, the key is value for money. So do your research and ask for recommendations.
