You you still on the fence as to whether you should purchase or rent a trade show display? Ask yourself these 5 questions to find out what your best option would be.

For a number of reasons, trade show display rentals have increased in popularity and have been used with rookie and seasoned exhibitors alike. Are rental displays right for you? If you answer yes to any of the following questions, then chances are it is the perfect solution for your upcoming event.


1. Do you go to only 1 or 2 trade shows a year?

If you infrequently participate in shows, it probably won t make a lot of sense for you to shell out thousands of dollars to purchase one. Renting a booth will allow you to spend a fraction of the cost of buying one and will be given back after the show, so there is no commitment.


2. Do you need flexibility?

One of the perks to display rentals is the fact that you can use a different display for every event, allowing you to keep your display look fresh and new from show to show. Graphics can also be added to the booth, allowing for a personalized booth that attendees will not know are rentals.


3. Do you want a custom or truss display, but it s out of your budget?

If there s a booth you like, there s a good chance it can be rented. For example, the Bodega 10 x 10 Truss Display can be purchased for $3,550, or the same media booth can be rented for only a little over $2,000. Rental displays allow you the option of having just about any booth you want without have to pay the amount it would cost to buy one.


4. Would you like to try a display system before purchasing it?

Buying a trade show exhibit is a big decision, especially since this booth will be with your company for many years. Finding one that you like and that will help promote your company, products, or services can be a tricky task. Luckily, as I previously mentioned, most booths can be rented. Before you determine what booth to spend your money on, renting it will allow you to try it and make the final decision if it is right for you and your company. Get feedback from attendees and your staff to help in deciding if it is the right one for you.


5. Do you lack the space to store your booth?

Since trade show display rentals are yours for a short period of time, storage will not be needed for long. Booths can get damaged if stored in an inadequate space, so if you are lacking the room to keep the display long-term, renting may be the best option.
