Should You Provide Your Own Portable Exhibition Table?
If you are attending an event, such as a trade show or seminar, the venue may not have the portable exhibition table that you need.
If you are attending an event, such as a trade show or
seminar, the venue may not have the portable exhibition table that you need. In
this event, you may need to supply your own table, but this is something that
you may want to do anyway. Often, if the venue does supply the table, there is
an extra charge for it, or the table may be in poor condition. Let’s take a
look at the various benefits of supplying your own table for the event.
are not subjected to damage done by past users of the furnishings. When
someone doesn’t own something, they don’t take nearly as good of care of
it. Others have used the tables provided by the venue, and the table may
no longer be suitable for the impression that you want to give future
clients or customers.
you own a portable exhibition table, you will always have one when you
need it, without having to spend more money to rent one. Again, often
venues charge more if they have to supply anything other than space, and
the charges are usually quite unreasonable. These tables fold for easy
storage when they are not in use, and they are typically very easy to
transport from one location to another.
will not be subjected to the sizes that are available at the venue for
your table. When you supply and bring your own, you can bring the size and
shape that you require. Often, these venues only have the cheapest tables
available, and consider them ‘one size fits all.’ You can bring your own
display system, with as many tables as you require, in the sizes that you
venue may have very rigid rules and regulations about how you use and
decorate the portable exhibition table that they provide. If you bring
your own, however, you are not subject to those rules and regulations,
allowing you to decorate the table using any materials that you desire.
However, they often impose these rules to try to prevent damage to the
table, but if you own your table or tables, you won’t have to worry about
extreme decorating designed to hide the condition of the table.
the display system that is provided by the venue is cheap and tacky – and
there is little that you can do about it regardless of the decorating that
you can do. Wobbly tables are common, and the table could be so worn out
that it collapses during the event. Worse, you won’t even know what shape
the furnishings are in until right before the event starts. You can avoid
this by providing your own display system, and ensuring that it is in good
condition before the event.
you can see, there are many reasons to supply your own portable exhibition
table, and because these tables can be leased or purchased, and they are
relatively inexpensive, if you will be attending trade shows or seminars
regularly, it may be well worth it to own and supply your own.
