With larger-scale trade expos and events undergoing a crisis of confidence our Portables Service is continuing to build an enthusiastic client fan-base. So what’s the attraction?
It’s no secret that organizations of all sizes are looking for rapid solutions to keep their customers engaged and their new business and promotional effort on the road through uncertain times. And at CDI World we’ve been working hard on applying our skills, along with some smart technology, to provide those solutions.
One way we’ve been doing this is to support the trend towards smaller regional and local events. Little-and-often is definitely giving big-and-less-frequent a run for its money at present and our Portables Service – AKA “Portables” – is playing a useful role in adapting to this shift.
In a nutshell (or, more often, in a carefully-packed crate), it’s an idea whose time has come.
And it’s a pleasingly simple concept. Portables offers companies a quick, easy and accurate method of ensuring the correct event kit is delivered to the show venue in pristine condition, ready for assembly. Just add people and products and you’re good to go.
Event kits can take many forms and include elements such as pop-up backwalls, pylons, reception desks, seating, plinths, brochure racks, flooring, mood lighting, technology windows and sanitizer stations. Everything a brand needs to present a professional and consistent image.
We originally developed the Portables system to serve a large multinational client who held a high-profile global events program and needed to store reusable custom booth components in a safe and logistically convenient location between shows.
Today, the system is proving just as useful for smaller promotional events which may take place at short notice in a wide range of local venues. These can include hotel function rooms, office lobbies, auto dealerships, retail stores and town halls. We’re considering awarding a prize for the most adventurous location. Watch this space.
How exactly does it work? Here’s a step-by-step guide for those weighing the possibilities offered by Portables:
We’re delighted that a diversity of companies use our Portables Service to manage their event properties with speed, simplicity and flexibility. If you’d like to explore how the system could benefit your events program, contact Account Services on 678-916-1212
