This week we are all about putting money in your pocket and keeping it out of the hands of the tax man. As they say the tax man cometh and this year he’ll be sticking his hand out on April 18th which is less than a week away. For those trade show vendors looking to keep more cash in their pockets, we’ve got a few ideas that just might turn that next event into one that will have you seeing red. So far we’ve talked about our one of a kind custom designed trade show exhibit rental program and today we thought we’d follow up by showing you a few ways to save on expenses while you hit the road towards that next convention.
3 Money Saving Tips For The Trade Show Vendor
You don’t always have to fly the friendly skies- While jumping on an airplane may seem like the most convenient form way to get to that next trade show, the bite it will take out of any profits you might make is simply just too big. Believe it or not if you are only traveling a distance of 500 miles from your home base, a rental car or even a train may be cheaper alternative. Yes gas prices will cost you a bit, but airlines are known for charging more to get you to those places which are not considered major hubs. This means that you might save a ton by deciding to hop a train or rent a car to go that next event in Hoboken rather than paying extra to the airlines for having to go to a smaller city.
Combining trips may just help you cut costs- One of the great things about so many of the custom trade show displays offered by Godfrey are their extreme portability. This can make a huge difference when you to take into account that scheduling events that are close together is a great way to save you tons in terms of travel costs. It only makes sense to hit events that are nearby to one another rather than criss-crossing the country covering the same ground needlessly over and over again.
An alternative to expensive hotel rooms- Obviously you want a hotel close to your event to allow for the most convenience, but you might consider looking for any corporate apartments nearby. Sure you may have to give up some of the traditional courtesies that you no doubt would receive from traditional hotels and suites, but the savings is more than worth no having a valet or complimentary breakfast
