Organizing and hosting a trade show can be exciting and exhausting all at once. But did you know that you can alleviate some of that exhaustion if you just start (and end) on the right foot? The best way to start and end your trade show run with a bang is to choose the right shipping crate. Not only will the right trade show shipping crate offer immediate benefits such as quick identification, easy open and close, and optimal protection for your booth, it will continue to work for you year after year.
Follow Valley Box Company's four tips below to make sure your trade show shipping crate is the best fit for your booth!
1. Customize the Trade Show Crate
Because your trade show booth is unique, you need a custom design tailored to your specific booth dimensions. The design should also include internal and external technology to accommodate your individual needs. This helps eliminate issues such as difficulty packing and unpacking and damages to parts.
2. Add Special Features that Save TimeWhen you choose a packaging specialist like Valley Box Company, you can expect trade show shipping crates that are easy to identify thanks to paint and stencils that create clear communications. Being able to identify your crate helps eliminate confusion and save precious time.
In addition, Valley Box’s easy open feature offers quick and easy manual access. This keeps the set-up process running quickly, smoothly, and efficiently.
3. Don’t Settle for Anything Less than Durable
Sure, some parts of your trade show booth may resist damage, but others may be very fragile. Trade show crates by Valley Box can be manufactured with foam, carpet lined surfaces, metal edged corners, casters, ramps, and pedestals, which are designed to protect your entire booth and all parts. After you've invested so much into a booth and display items you want them to last! Often times trade show displays are used for several years before a new booth is designed.
4. Choose Quality Materials
A trade show crate that will stand the test of time starts with high quality materials. Valley Box uses only the most durable materials in manufacturing our shipping solutions, so Valley Box shipping crates are built to last so you can reuse them year after year. And with a refurbishing program your trade show shipping crate can be repaired or modified to incorporate new trade show display items.
