Trade Show Tips for Keeping Your Gear Secure

If you or your company frequents trade shows you’re probably already aware that proper storage via trade show case is critical to both the look and longevity of equipment. Sizable repair bills, gear that is unavailable when you need it most and other issues often plague unprotected equipment that have fallen victim to breakage or wear and tear either on the road, in storage, or on-site. Here are some tips for keeping your exhibition in great condition.

Keep Your Equipment and Display Organized

Before packing it up, do a full inspection of your display. Walk completely around the exhibit looking for rips, tears, fades, dirt or breakage of any kind. Make sure all hardware is still present for set up, breakdown and repair. Every piece of equipment should be labeled for ease of locating. You should also create a checklist for use during the break-down and pack-up process.

Choose a Good Storage Area

Major temperature fluctuations and excess moisture from water damage should be avoided at all costs. Unfortunately, your chosen storage space is the best place for these harmful elements to invade and damage your display items, due to the sheer amount of time they will reside there. If your equipment is stored for you by a third party, be aware of their storage capabilities and the state of their storage space.
