NY Fashion Week is certainly one of the most visible and flamboyant signs that it’s that time of year again. Fall is a busy time for industry trade shows and conventions. If you’re a manufacturer, trade shows and conventions are a good way to get your product in front of buyers.
What is the best way to get your trade show displays and merchandise from your corporate home to the event? Many events are in the Boston area, but many are not. You may need to ship displays from Boston to New York City, Orlando, or any of a dozen other destination cities. Trade show displays are notoriously difficult to ship: often large and bulky, trade show displays can include oversized banners, signage, heavy boxes of brochures and sales collateral materials, free samples, display merchandise and more. Is your company’s shipping and receiving department up to the task?
“I am my company’s shipping and receiving department!” Leigh Anne’s Boston company creates high-end costume jewelry for use in theatrical productions and film. “Most of the time, that’s fine, because we’re sending a box that’s this big.” She held up her hands, indicating a box the size of the average shoebox. “And that’s a really big order!” To exhibit at an important convention, Leigh Anne had a much larger job on her hands.
“It was overwhelming! I wasn’t even sure of the best way to pack this stuff. That’s why I turned to my Eastern MA packing and shipping company.” Delegating the trade show display shipping to a professional shipping service in Boston relieved Leigh Anne of one stressful task. “I could concentrate on making sure every order we had was filled perfectly before I left to attend the show. Believe me, in this business, the faster you can fill orders, the happier the customers are. We can’t afford any downtime.”
If your company is in the same position, and you need to ship tradeshow exhibits, displays, or merchandise to an event or convention, contact your Boston pack and ship company. They have the expertise and resources you need to make sure everything gets to the location on time and budget!
