Force Majeure 5 Tips for Trade Show Success and Safety

Exhibit and event managers are always ready with alternate solutions when the unexpected happens. Missing freight, damaged graphics, and flight delays are not uncommon problems at trade shows. When companies are signing contracts for exhibit space, there is often a clause about “Force Majeure,” unforeseeable circumstances that prevent someone from fulfilling a contract. In years gone by, most exhibit managers thought concerning a natural disaster like earthquake, hurricane, or tornado. The reality we now live in also includes terrorist attacks.

Trade Show Planning For Safe Journeys

As the global marketplace expands more companies are participating in overseas exhibitions. Successful trade show planning isn’t just about the stand design. Safety for employees while traveling is as important to corporate management as securing new business in foreign markets. Staff members will be confident when embarking on an overseas trip for exhibitions when they are informed about current safety precautions.

 

Size Matters When It Comes To Exhibit Heights

“Size matters” is no joke when it applies to the height of your exhibit. Safety first is important to every exhibiting company and convention facilities. Trade show managements, professional/industry associations as well as venues across Europe are changing height restrictions, sometimes after the exhibitor service kit has been published. Exhibit managers and  builders may not be advised of the change until they have submitted the exhibit designs for approval. In some cases the association is not aware of a venue height rule change when the exhibitor manual is published.
