As one of the world’s most innovative custom exhibit companies, our trade show design process sets us apart from other exhibit similar firms. We design and fabricate exhibits for trade shows and conferences across the globe. With over 20 years of experience and multiple award-winning exhibits, we deliver exceptional quality while awaiting the latest innovations.
To ensure that all projects meet our high expectations, we follow a strict 6-stage trade show design process. Let’s explore these six steps so you can get a better understanding of how we would approach your own exhibit.
Stage 1: Briefing
The first stage of the process is where we get to know you, the client. We put ourselves in your shoes as you explain the following:
- Your goals for the trade show
- Your wants and needs
- Specific details of the event
- Your target audience
- Research on your brand
- Visuals and media to incorporate
You know your brand best. You know your audience best. By listening and understanding your goals, we can build an incredible exhibit that represents your brand.
Stage 2: Design
Next comes the design stage. Every exhibit is designed from the inside-out by our IGE design team. First, we consider the audience and a layout that would make sense for them. This is how we find inspiration for floor plans, 3D designs and interactive elements. We discuss the plans with the client so they have a full understanding of what we’re going after.
Stage 3: Detailing
When the exhibit design is approved, we proceed with the detailing. This phase of the project is similar to detailing a car. We go through every nook and cranny and ensure that it meets perfection: floor plans, electrical, lighting, materials and finishes, AV plans and more. We can also address possible concerns before they become issues.
Stage 4: Fabrication
Fabrication is handled in-house, allowing us to control the process and ensure the highest standards. We have a fabrication facility that stocks state-of-the-art equipment and CNC machinery. Because we don’t have to outsource these needs, we save our clients money and headache on graphics, signage, substrates and more.
Stage 5: Logistics
When your trade show booth is complete, we’ll handle all logistics. Regardless of where you are in the world, we have solutions to get the product to you quickly. IGE has resources for shipping, delivery, installation, dismantling and storage.
Stage 6: On-site
If you need on-site assistance, we’re prepared to deliver it! Our on-site supervisors are part of your team and can help with installation and dismantling. Having this comprehensive service allows you to step into the spotlight and set your brand apart from your competitors.
IGE practices excellence. Our strategic 6-stage design process sets our customers apart from others at some of the world’s largest trade shows.
