Purchasing trade show displays can be confusing enough, so what happens when you're reviewing your contract for the venue, and you come across an unfamiliar word like, "drayage?"
- transportation of your trade show exhibit materials from the receiving dock to your assigned booth space
- removal and storage of shipping crates and cases once display setup is complete
- return of shipping crates at the conclusion of the event
- loading materials back onto a carrier's vehicle for outbound shipment
Drayage can be extremely expensive. Our recommendations? Read your contract carefully, and make sure you understand all the terms and are clear on all deadlines. If your display is small enough, ship it directly to your hotel; this way, you'll elimate drayage expenses altogether! Visit displayit.com to find some great portable trade show displays.
