Why and when to choose a modular stand?

Let’s begin by looking at the pros and cons of modular exhibition stands.

Modular exhibition stands are for you will not be paying for a bespoke design service. If you are looking for an exhibition stand that can be adapted to various experiential spaces, then a modular exhibition system is the perfect choice. They are also ideal for anyone who will be exhibiting regularly and doesn’t want to invest in custom branding and design.  The stands are easy to assemble and, while they may be a cheaper option, can still get your message across. 

If you have multiple exhibits lined up in a year, buying a modular stand can give you excellent returns on investments since the same stand can be reused at various times. For instance, if you are participating in 4 exhibits in a year, out of which 3 of those are of equal importance, but you want to make a splash at the 4th exhibition, then, in that case, you can buy a stand fit for the first 3 exhibitions and then just hire additional elements and accessories required to fit the larger stand space. We at Expo Stand Services provide rental service on modular stands.
