How much does an exhibition stand cost?

The question “How much does an exhibition stand cost??” is something we get asked a lot. But the truth is, there is no one answer. The cost of exhibiting depends on the type, design and style of display you want. So what are your options?

Custom Exhibition Stands

If you want to make a big impact and put the competition in the shade, you’ll need a stand that not only has the elusive wow factor, but one that also represents your brand, and is designed specifically around your products and services.

And, while the custom stand typically comes with a higher upfront cost, it can deliver maximum bang for buck over time. Especially if you work with an exhibition stand specialists who know how to create something unique that can be reconfigured for different spaces.

Modular Exhibition Stands

Today, savvy organisations are turning to affordable, eye-catching, and reusable modular exhibition stands that can be adapted and reconfigured for many different shows and hall spaces.

By delivering maximum value over time, reusable exhibition stands provide a high return on investment. And, if you want to maximise budget while keeping things fresh, these modular marvels can be updated quickly and easily with interchangeable graphics and different components. So, as well as standing the test of time, our modern systems provide the potential for unlimited creativity.

What’s more, if you don’t have the budget to buy a modular stand upfront, you can always hire one.

Self-Build and Portable Exhibition Stands

When it comes to exhibiting, banner stands are undoubtedly cost-effective. But if you're looking to attract new business at a tradeshow or other event, you need something that will get you noticed. So why spend your budget on stand space if you are just going to decorate it with an uninspiring pop-up?

It takes seven seconds to make an impression, so you must give your business the best chance of success. As such, rather than a pop-up banner stand, your money would be better spent on a self-build stand. For example, the Apex Twist System is affordable, portable, versatile and easy to set up. Meaning you can adapt the size for future shows without any fuss.

And, if you decide a self-build exhibition stand is the way to go, you should speak to an exhibition stand specialist to make sure it is maximised for success with unique add-ons, graphics and features.

So, How much does an exhibition stand cost??

As you can see, there is no clear answer to this question. But, if you know how much you want to spend, we can design something to meet your budget.

Don’t be afraid to discuss your budget with Apex. We will make sure you get something that looks great, and that you can afford.

As well as asking “How much does an exhibition stand cost??” you also need to ask “how will I achieve ROI?”

Exhibitions are a powerful way to showcase your brand and the products/services you offer. And if you choose a system that works for your business, you should be able to recoup your investment. So, when it comes to maximising ROI, rather than focusing on the up-front expense of an exhibition stand, it pays to consider the whole life cost.

However, at Apex, we understand that - while creating the best stand possible is key - for most organisations, investment cost remains a genuine concern. As such, we use all our expertise to ensure you stand out, even without a huge budget. For example, we have developed innovative ways of using different media and re-usable components. And, with lightweight alloys, tensioned fabrics and hi-tech plastics all used to produce contemporary and high-quality stands, you can adapt and re-configure for many different shows and hall spaces.

In short, we help you to maximise the impact you have at your next show.
