Why Every Trade Show Needs Highly Skilled Logistics Specialists

A successful trade show hinges on efficient logistics planning.

A successful trade show hinges upon efficient logistics planning.

When you’ve invested substantial capital into putting on an event, the last thing you want is to arrive at the show only to discover that deliveries missed the receiving deadline, or your marketing material was damaged on route. Trade show logistics play a crucial role in delivering a successful event experience. And whether you’re putting on a trade show, promotional event, B2B expo, or pop-up retail extravaganza, organizing a large-scale event is no simple matter.

Don’t Get Distracted

Because there’s so much at stake, large scale trade shows pretty much have to operate on the assumption of strict deadlines. All too often, marketing planning overshadows the need for smart logistics planning. And we get it, making sure you nail your company’s marketing message is incredibly important. That’s why letting AFP Expo Logistics handle your trade show logistics is so valuable. Our highly skilled logistics specialists make the planning process easy and stress free, so you can devote more of your time to crafting the perfect presentation.

Planning for Trade Show Success

Another thing about trade shows that often goes overlooked is the fact that tradeshow and exhibition logistics are unlike that of freight and transportation processes. Trade shows have their own unique set of needs due to variable shipment sizes, packaging differences, multiple locations, time sensitivity and deadlines. It’s imperative to have a specialist with in-depth knowledge of on-site material handling procedures and rules. With AFP Expo Logistics, you can rest assured that convention material will be stored and delivered on time. We stand by our no-fail reputation for trade show and freight forwarding expertise. That way, you can have peace of mind and focus on everything else you need to put on a successful trade show booth.
