WHY RENTING A TRADE SHOW BOOTH IN CHICAGO IS SMARTER
The primary goal of exhibiting at a trade show or convention is to build your brand while attracting qualified prospects. At the same time, you need to stay within budget in order to have a successful exhibiting experience. ExpoMarketing can help you achieve both goals with a custom trade show display that meets all your display requirements.
Since 1991, ExpoMarketing has been providing exhibitors with a cost-effective alternative to designing and building their own booths. We offer many award-winning designs to choose from, and we carry one of the largest booth rental inventories in the U.S. Most important, our trade show booth rentals in Chicago provide a professional, custom-built look without the high cost of ownership.
If you’re looking for a Chicago trade show display that’s easier on your staff and your budget, renting is the logical choice. Renting gives you the flexibility to change booth sizes – an important consideration if you exhibit at multiple shows every year. Renting incurs lower labor shipping and drayage costs. And it can help avoid extra fees for maintenance, refurbishment, pull and prep, and storage.

How do I make my booth out at a Chicago conference?
One of the best ways to make your booth stand out at a Chicago conference is to get a larger booth space that is near high traffic areas.
