Cheap Exhibition Stands

 If you’re reading this, then it is likely you have searched online for cheap exhibition stands. It is possible you are looking for a roller-banner for under £100, or a pop-up display that won’t break the £500 mark. You might even be looking for a custom build solution that will hit your budget of £2,000. If you can relate to any of these, then you now have two options. Click away and continue your search, or read on and discover why buying cheap really does mean buying twice.

 It’s the equivalent of buying a car. You can either buy an old banger for £500 that will last you two years or you can buy one for £5,000 that will last you ten years. The old banger is likely to cause you numerous problems, need several repairs and could cost you double the amount of the car before it eventually decides to burn out. The £5,000 car may not be a £50,000 sports car, but it will last much longer than the old banger, will need minimal work, and will come with a guarantee that will give you piece of mind.

The same goes for exhibition displays.

A prospect told me this week that he had decided to go ahead with a number of cheap roller banners instead of our premium quality units. The reason was, and I quote, “they’ll probably just end up dumped in a car park in a couple of years anyway.”

Let that sink in.

In an era of recycling, conservation and sustainability, where waste management has become one of the biggest issues in our society, this prospect would rather spend his money on a poor quality graphic with a weak unit that he will throw away, than a high quality graphic, sustainable unit with a lifetime guarantee.

If you agree with his decision, then you may want to look away now. If you don’t, then this might just be for you.

Choosing the right exhibition stand is an important decision. This stand will display your company logo, your brand image and your marketing campaign. This display will either attract potential business to your stand, or repel it. If you are a Marketing or Events Manager who is in charge of purchasing a display, you need to be aware that this display will reflect your company image. If you believe that your company is only worth a cheap, dismal graphic printed on Tesco brand toilet paper with a framework that could be blown over my a slight breeze, then that is exactly how your clients will see it.

No ifs, no buts, no maybes.

A poor quality stand will not stand the test of time, it will fail and it will only cause more stress and hassle whilst giving you a weak marketing tool in the process. The reason the stand is so cheap is because it is made cheap. It’s not a bargain; it’s a complete rip off because you end up spending more money in the long term.

There are, however, bargains out there.

There are a host of re-usable, sustainable, and durable exhibition displays on the market. There are companies that care about their company image as much as you should care about yours. There are companies that believe they only look good if you look good.  Here at Guardian Display, we offer lifetime guarantees on nearly all of our products, we take time and care to find the right solution to hit any budget. Whether you are in a shell scheme or a space only, we will discuss ideas with you, produce 3D Visual presentations and visit you at your offices to make sure you get the very best from your exhibitions.

The bargain is that you will never need another exhibition stand. If you invest into a system that is limitless in its possibilities, you can build your display, add bespoke items and portray your company branding professionally, creatively, and most importantly, sustainable.

Even if it isn’t the £50,000 sports car, it’ll still drive like one.
