What is Program Management?

Program management is the process of managing several related projects, with the goal of improving an organization's performance. It is an A-Z turnkey solution including:
• Exhibit design and fabrication
• Warehousing
• Online inventory management
• Pre-show booth staging
• Show services coordination
• Logistics management
• On-site install and dismantle
• Project management
• And more

But what is the value in becoming a program client?

Turn-Key Service

As a program client, you have a team of industry experts taking care of every aspect of your show experience. Whether it’s a national or regional show, custom or rental booth, or we’re onsite or not, Exhibitpro has efficient processes in place to ensure client success.

Change happens fast in the trade show world, and Exhibitpro’s experienced on-site team is there to handle everything, so you don’t have to. We become an extension of your team by coordinating all of the details before show open - from rigging teams, to internal venue teams, electricians, internet, and stage hands. We’ve been at this for 28 years, developing valuable relationships and expertise that allows us to handle the entirety of our clients’ shows.

Once the show is over, we manage all of the follow-up, including a thorough post-show audit of convention center billing to prevent any issues or mistakes.

You just connected with a great lead, but don't have a way to write down their information.

Your company decided to send over some last-minute promotional items, but the box is too tightly taped to pull open.

The cold weather is making your nose a little more runny than usual, and it's almost time for attendees to walk in the door.

What do you do? Grab your Just-in-Case Kit.

What’s a Just-in-Case kit?

We want to make your show day as hassle-free as possible, so we include a Just-In-Case Kit with every custom and rental booth we send out. The kits include small items that may come in handy as you set up, interact with attendees, and pack up for the day. The Just-in-Case Kit will arrive in one of your booth's crates, where an on-site team member will unpack and place it in a convenient location for you to access during the show. From there, it's up to you. Use it as needed, or don't use it at all. It's there...just in case.

What's in it?

With around 25 items in each Just in Case Kit, the following just scratches the surface:

We’ve got it all covered. We’ve included items to help you put your best foot forward like mints and a lint roller. The pens, notepads, and sticky notes will help you jot down important information, and the boxcutter, scissors, and packing tape will help you tackle a last-minute arrival or send out. If your booth is a 10x20 or larger, we'll include a case of water for your team. That way, you don’t have to use expensive vending machines, or spend valuable time running outside the convention center.

Why do we provide it?

Our goal is always to provide you with an unmatched level of service, from the start of your project, to the end. Our years of industry experience have allowed us to perfect the show process, and take care of every tiny detail along the way. Our onsite Exhibit Managers have time and time again seen the benefits of our Just-in-Case Kits for clients in need of a quick solution. These kits are just another way for us to help you succeed at show - because nothing makes us happier than seeing our clients succeed.

Need Something Else?

If you run into any other issues that can’t be solved with the Just-in-Case Kit, we provide a show book that has the contact information of your project and account manager. Just reach out to either contact, and they will resolve your issue as quickly and efficiently as possible.


Have questions about Just-in-Case Kits or what's included in a booth provided by Exhibitpro? Reach out! We'd be happy to help.

IMTS, the biennial International Manufacturing Technology Show, is one of the world's largest industrial trade shows. IMTS 2018 didn't disappoint with a record number of registrations, booths, and exhibiting companies. Now, it's time to get ready for IMTS 2020, and we're here to help. Using our experience at IMTS, we've come up with the top 6 trends to help you stand out at the show:

Unique Product Displays

IMTS is a great opportunity to display your products, and we recommend displaying them in every possible inch of your booth. But, the audience at IMTS is probably very familiar with your product. You need a unique display in order to grab their attention. We have some ideas:

Sculptures- Entertain and catch attendees' eyes by incorporating your products into a ...

Impact 2019 has come and gone, and we want to thank everyone who attended and made this year such a success. Here’s a quick recap of what happened this year:

Keynote Speakers

This year we welcomed keynote speakers Sue Jablonski, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at OhioHealth, and Shane Meeker, Corporate Storyteller and Founder of StoryMythos.

Meeker gave us a “movie guide to better business stories”, with valuable, actionable methods for engaging your audience. Great stories are all around us on the stage, page, and screen, and Meeker encouraged remixing those tried and true stories to create your corporate narrative.

Jablonski presented real-life success stories from OhioHealth, and others, that utilized powerful storytelling techniques to stand out and attract attention. She emphasized the importance of truly understanding your audience and continuously evolving your exhibits and events.

Projection Mapping

Around the showroom, attendees marveled at our projection mapping, seen above. Projection mapping allows any object, regardless of shape to become a surface for video projection. Our demonstration was fairly simplistic, but the possibilities are endless. With so many monitors dominating the show floor, attendees have become unimpressed, and tune out traditional monitors of all sizes. Try projection mapping onto 3D surfaces to grab their attention! Need help? Our team can help you incorporate projection mapping in your next booth.

LED Panels

The LED panels at the JP Morgan booth intrigued guests from the second they walked in the door. Standing 16 feet tall, these panels allow for seamless and captivating photo or video content that’s sure to engage attendees on the show floor. LED panels can be customized to fit your exact needs for the ultimate experience at show. Have questions about LED panels? We can help.

3D Lighted Hologram Display

These displays captivated everyone who saw them at Impact, and you have to see it to believe it. Dimensional, motion video appears to be floating in front of you, showcasing graphic content of your choice. We could watch these all day.

Networking, Food, & Friends

Impact 2019 was a great chance to network, as we had attendees from a wide range of companies (from start-ups to Fortune 500 corporations). As always, we loved getting a chance to catch up with our clients and industry professionals while showcasing the latest trade show and event technology. Everyone was treated to hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and desserts while they browsed our showroom and connected with friends.

Impact 2020

We can’t wait to see all of you next year at Impact 2020, but we want to hear from you before then.

Did you see something at Impact 2019 that caught your eye? Want more information on something specific? We’d be happy to chat with you. Just contact us here.

See you next year!

4 seconds. That’s how long you have to get trade show attendees attention before they walk right by your booth. So, how do you do it?

Your booth is a reflection of your company. Your company is always progressing, evolving, and changing - so why isn’t your booth? Older booths communicate an aging company with dated products. Trends in trade shows are a chance to freshen up your booth and keep attendees interested year after year. Below you’ll find the latest trends in materials, lighting, technology, and engagement to keep your booth current and interesting to attendees.

MATERIAL TRENDS

Welcome attendees into your booth with wood tones and natural elements. Gone are the days of sterile, white laminate, all-white spaces. Natural materia...
