Empty stickers can be picked up at the SourceOne Exhibitor Service Center or from SourceOne employee on the show floor. Each container that you wish to keep should have an empty sticker with your company name and booth number. SourceOne employees will picked up the containers throughout the move-in days and are stored during the show.
We can help you with a variety of questions regarding your show and the execution of the event. The SourceOne Exhibitor Services Center is also readily available to assist with several different show time concerns like orders, shipments, services, labor, invoice balance, empty stickers, material handling, loading, etc.
You may wish to bring a copy of your order confirmations if you had ordered through our Online Ordering Center and any copies of your media if you had sent it to the SourceOne’s Graphics and Audio Visual departments. Also, please bring copies of all documents stating what you had shipped, how it was shipped and any tracking numbers provided by your carrier. Lastly you may also want to bring any information regarding outbound shipping after the event including your carrier and destination.
If you had placed an order for Carpet through SourceOne Events, it should be in your booth on the first day of move-in. If you do need electrical services, please be sure to make note on the Exhibitor’s Kit form so that we can ensure that the electrical is installed prior to carpet installation. SourceOne Events’ furnishings and Specialty Furniture will arrive according to the show’s schedule. Please review the Exhibitor’s Kit for show scheduling and dates.
When arriving to the show site, you should go to your assigned booth and check that everything you ordered is there. Also be sure to check that all your shipments have arrived. If you ordered electrical services make sure it has been installed and working properly. And, if you ordered carpet from SourceOne Events, make sure it has been installed. If you find anything is missing, please contact SourceOne Events’ Exhibitor Services or stop by the Exhibitor Services Center for assistance. You may also speak with any SourceOne Events employee on the show floor.
Trade Show rental exhibit displays are a good option if you are a first-time exhibitor or only exhibit at a few shows a year. Purchasing exhibit displays become expensive with customizations, so make sure you know you will get the use out of it if you do decide to purchase your own.
Yes, we offer a full inventory of Exhibit Rentals and Custom Exhibits. Rentals are a great option if you attend fewer than three or four shows a year. By renting a display, you don’t have to make a large investment. If you attend more than four shows a year, you are probably better off purchasing your own trade show exhibit display.
The costs of trade show exhibit rentals vary with size and features. Generally, an exhibit rental is about 25 to 30 percent the investment of purchasing the same trade show display.
The best type of display or trade show graphics depends on your company, budget and exhibiting objectives. Whatever you need, we offer a full rental inventory, from exhibit rental, custom portable exhibits, custom modular displays, trade show accessories, such as counters, literature racks, flooring and more. Visit our Department page for all the rental options we offer.
SourceOne has an extensive rental inventory that is available online on our Rental pages. Our inventory has hundreds of items that are all offered for rent. Please visit our Rental pages to view all our products.
