The success of business participation in exhibitions in Dubai can always be tricky and can be reliant on various factors such as visitor audience, economic conditions, seasonal timings and most of these cannot be controlled. However as a business owner or participant everyone wants a good exhibition stand design – one that stands out, is functional and is cost-effective.
All these can be achieved by hiring good exhibition companies in Dubai who are experienced in trade shows and understand your requirements. They understand that exhibitions today especially in the Middle East region are the most commonly used marketing platforms where various buyers and merchants meet, network and interact and get introduced to different products and services on offer.
Although there is no hard and fast rule and it all boils down to your business preference s and requirements– a few areas need to be considered before choosing.
Review the Company Profile: When you choose an exhibition company see how long they have been operating their business and if their staff has been with them for a while.
Look for Experience: Good exhibition companies in Dubai always have valuable experience in trade shows and events. Choose someone who has undertaken projects of different scales, sizes and design requirements. Inquire how experienced their staff as you really want the skilled people handling your design and build project.
Hire someone with Good Reputation: One very important thing of note is to choose exhibition stand companies who have good credibility and reputation in the industry. Check if they are well known and if their customers are happy with their previous projects.
Check their Capability: Check if the exhibition company has technicians and laborers in-house or do they our-source it? If so who will be responsible for the co-ordination? Ensure that they take complete accountability of the outcome and responsible to deliver your requirements exactly as per your expectations.
Ask for References: Good exhibition companies should be able to provide references of their completed projects from their previous customers and this should give you a fair indication of their quality, timeliness and customer service. At BusinessBid we take the effort of collecting such reviews for you right here.
Get someone Knowledgeable: Always try to work with companies who have local Dubai or UAE knowledge. These companies will have a good relationship with various suppliers and will understand the planning aspects really well.
Compare Costs: There are some companies who will design only and some who will design and build. Choose a company based on your project requirements and its always a good thing to discuss the pricing up-front. If you prefer fixed pricing, discuss a quote which includes your design, material and labour, installation and dismantling costs. Note that cheapest isn’t always the best.
Always Write-Up a Contract: Ensure that you have a written contract in place to avoid conflict later and everything is stipulated in black and white. Include all aspects of design, pricing, specifications, delivery schedules and other important deliverable’s in the contract.
