Five Tips to Keep Your Trade Show Planning Stress Free:

1) When Scheduling Your Trade Show Season

Build time for prepping, packing and shipping into your overall schedule. You will also need time for breakdown, packing and shipping to the next show. Being aware of these factors and transit times between shows will help avoid rush trade show shipping charges.

2) Labeling

Make sure to label all materials with key information from the bill of lading. Remove all old labels on your trade show exhibits to avoid confusion. Include the name, date, time and location of the show you are attending and your booth number. Include point of contact with phone number to receive the shipment.

3) Pack with Care

You've invested a lot of time and money into your exhibit, so you need to make sure your trade show booth and supplies arrive in one piece. Use sufficient inner packing, corner protectors and a carrier like OD with industry leading claims prevention.

4) Partner with OD

At OD, we view ourselves as our customers' partner, not just a service provider. That's why you are assigned a single point of contact with every trade show shipment. Our trade show specialists keep track of shipping details so you can focus on your business.

5) Focus on Your Business

Once you have trusted your trade show shipping to OD, our Trade Show Solutions Specialists oversee the entire logistics process from planning and scheduling to pick-up and delivery, tracking and tracing every step of the way. Now you can focus on what happens after your exhibit is set up which is driving your business.
