The tradeshow circuit can involve a lot of logistics. From planning different events, training your team and working on marketing assets, one area that we can help you optimize is your tradeshow or exhibition booth crating and shipping. Many companies get custom crating because it provides the best protection, it provides simplicity for your team, and these crates are durable and long-lasting. Here at Crate This, we work with our clients to ensure that crates are designed to meet the exact needs for what is being shipped. We make durable crates out of high quality materials so you can count on them for years to come. If you are interested in learning more, give us a call, or contact us for more information.
Tradeshow crates are crates made specifically for booths and other exhibition equipment. Because we know exactly what they are going to be used for, we can optimize them in quite a few ways. First and foremost, we provide excellent protection for your booth elements. Many tradeshow crates are built with multiple interior sections to hold different pieces and items. These sections can include foam inserts that add extra protection. Tradeshow materials are often being shipped from place to place and spend a lot of time on the road. With this in mind, it is vital that these crates are durable and are going to keep each individual item protected while on the road.
Another core design philosophy for booth crating is to provide ease of use to your team. This can include ramps as well as easy instructions. Because each element of the booth is often individually contained within the crate, it is vital that the crate is properly packed. With simple instructions, we can make it easier for your team to quickly and effectively unload and reload the crate for each event on the road. With this in mind, we highly recommend providing instructions to your team including pictures or diagrams of the fully loaded crate so that the items are put in their proper placements after each use. This ensures that you get the ideal protection your crate can offer.
If you load your booth elements into a standard crate or box it is likely that things will get damaged. It might not be on the first trip, but over the course of multiple trips, it will become easier and easier for loose items to bump into each other and break. And if your booth involves electronics or fragile items, that extra customized protection will go a long way. More importantly, a tradeshow crate is just easier to manage for your team. The individualized area for each item or group of items makes it easy to organize before and after each showing. Your team is less likely to forget a core element of the booth if every element has a place in the crate and there are instructions on how to tear down and repack the crate. Additionally, our crates are designed for multiple uses and can even be used for storage, so you can utilize the same crate and booth design in the future.
