Furnishing your booth is often one of the last steps in a booths design, but the importance of choosing your furniture shouldn’t be overlooked or left to the last minute! The furniture chosen should correlate directly with your overall objectives for your space. It’s very important to think about those goals before committing to furnishings. For example, if you want a more formal business atmosphere then meeting tables and chairs are a good choice. On the other hand if you want your guests to lounge for a while, create a comfortable space with lounge furniture and charging stations for their devices.
Purchasing furniture is always an option if you use the same design over and over. However, there are many benefits to renting your trade show furniture instead. Here are a few!
Benefits of renting furniture
No storage fees
Nearly unlimited options. You can even rent fake plants!
Convenience: If you rent through us or the show your furniture will be delivered to your booth and picked up when the show is over.
No shipping costs or handling charges
No up front costs
More flexibility. You have the freedom to change the feel and design of your exhibit as often as you like.
What will it cost?
That depends. If your companies needs are fairly simple you’ll likely be able to use standard rental furniture. Standard furniture can typically be rented from the show or it can be added to a rental order through us. While standard furniture has a cheaper price tag, there are fewer options so the look will be pretty basic. Of course if you’re willing to pay a bit more, custom furnishings will provide a ton more options, allowing you to dazzle your attendees with your trendy style and memorable spaces.
Some examples of trade show rental furniture:
No matter what type of furniture you fill your space with, the important thing is that it matches the feel of your design. By incorporating furniture that matches your aesthetic, you’ll be able to create an inviting space that will be memorable to those who visit your booth.
There are a number of things to consider when deciding if an exhibit rental or purchase is the right choice for your exhibiting needs, but it ultimately comes down to cost and flexibility.
Cost for renting vs buying
Similar to owning a home, however, you will need to plan for upgrades and emergencies if you own your booth. Damage can occur in transit requiring hardware fixes and you’ll more than likely want to update your graphics periodically. You’ll also need to store that booth somewhere between shows as well as arrange for shipping it around the country to your various shows.
If you’re new to the tradeshow industry, purchasing a booth may be hard on your budget. This is especially true if you’re still in the exploratory phase trying to figure out your marketing strategy. But ultimately, if your plan is to use the same exhibit for multiple shows, purchasing your display will be the best option. As a general rule of thumb you can pay for the cost of a new display with the cost of three rentals. So if you’re attending 3 shows where the same booth will work, purchasing is the most cost effective.
Renting is obviously more expensive in the long term, but provides many other benefits that we’ll get to below.
Flexibility: Renting vs Purchasing
Our business has come a long way over the years, and one of the big industry changes has been the shift from booth purchases to rentals. For the majority of our clients the ease, convenience and flexibility of renting is much more appealing than purchasing. Plus, with our rental system you aren’t limited to the pre-designed kits on our site. Just about anything you can get with a purchase can be done as a rental these days!
Renting a booth means you’re not tied down to any size or design. This means that for large shows you can go BIG, then scale down at smaller shows without owning multiple booths. Or, if you prefer to use the same booth multiple times we can store your graphics to save reproduction costs. While purchasing the booth might be less long term, the convenience of just being able to show up and sell your product is worth it to many. Time is money, right? Not having to worry about storage, shipping, installation & dismantling is a huge benefit of renting.
As an example of how a client might change their look every year with a custom rental, here are 3 different rentals we’ve provided for the same company over 3 years. Notice how their basic needs are similar each year, but renting allows them to drastically change their design to compete in an ever-evolving tech industry. Do these designs look like cookie-cutter rentals to you? (hint: the answer is NO!)

Renting could also be a good starting point if you want to test the waters before committing to a purchase. When purchasing, not only are you investing more money upfront, but you’re committing to a longer run with that design. If flexibility isn’t important to your company as saving money, purchasing is probably the best option for you.
At the end of the day it’s a judgement call. It really depends on your company, budget, and marketing goals. If you’re on the fence you can view more information about renting on our site here. Or you can give us a call to discuss with an industry expert!
