Free Design Concepts for Exhibitors at the Chicago IMTS show

July 12, 2022

Chicago – The Tradeshow Network Marketing Group announced that it will provide complimentary design renderings for trade show exhibits to qualified businesses and organizations looking to have designed a 20 x 20+  trade show display at the IMTS Show in Chicago. Each custom exhibit design is geared to the client’s specific needs, including their objectives for trade show marketing, brand image, budget, and booth space and location. The IMTS Show will start on September 12th at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“A trade show exhibit must represent the exhibitor’s business to its best advantage, so we go through a comprehensive planning process before the custom designIMTS trade show begins,” explains Chris Roberts, president of The Tradeshow Network Marketing Group. “First-time exhibitors up to those looking to improve their presence need to understand how their exhibit can be configured for the exhibit space they have reserved, such as an island space or a corner display. Providing a detailed design rendering gives clients the opportunity to visualize the new exhibit and see how it will appear from various angles before the exhibit is built.”

The initial design phase includes discussions of how the exhibit will be used and the elements needed for different functions, such as display shelves, storage space, video presentation areas, product demonstrations, or private meeting spaces. The client’s ballpark budget plays a key role in determining the exhibit’s parameters. The Tradeshow Network’s design concept provides 3-D renderings of the exhibit from different views on the virtual show floor.

The Tradeshow Network team recommends starting the process of designing a new booth at least six months before the first scheduled show, if possible, to allow ample time for design, exhibit building, and shipping. In a rush situation, new exhibits can be designed and assembled more quickly, particularly if the exhibit incorporates modular components from the Tradeshow Network’s rental exhibit inventory. However, creating graphic panels and other custom elements of an exhibit requires sufficient time to ensure quality.
