PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT

With over 28 years of tradeshow experience, our critical-thinking coordinators manage your projects, provide detailed communication and updates, deliver comprehensive tracking of your product, navigate quick turnarounds, and assist with document preparation. We give you the peace of mind you deserve and the extra time to focus your energy where it is most needed.

INSTALL & DISMANTLE

Navigating the trade show floor can be a daunting task. Cardinal Expo’s Onsite Team will track the delivery of your booth and oversee the installation of your exhibit to make sure everything is ready for you and your sales team to hit the ground running at showtime.

LOGISTICS & SHIPPING

Cardinal Expo logistics coordinators will schedule and track the carrier of your crates from our warehouse to its final destination.

Based on your exhibit size and complexity, Cardinal Expo will provide on-site labor with detailed instructions and parts lists to assemble your exhibit at your show or event.

Before that can happen, we’ll monitor all of your show services and utilities to make sure they are in place and ready for the exhibit to be built.

BOOTH DESIGN

All your design needs are provided in-house. Our team of creative designers collaborate with you and your team to produce detailed 3-D renderings and exhibit booth layouts. You are given a pre-flight of all client-supplied graphics to ensure quality printing, detailed spec requirements documentation, and a thorough check-in and inventory of all graphics.

ONSITE SUPERVISION

Cardinal Expo takes pride in the quality of our exhibits through all stages. At your show, our onsite supervisor will work closely with labor teams to expedite a seamless build of your exhibit. The Cardinal Expo supervisor will schedule a pre-show walkthrough to highlight the features of your exhibit and will turn over the exhibit to your team. A supervisor will also return at the end of your show to dismantle, take inventory of, and pack the exhibit back into crates for the return to our Cardinal Expo warehouse.

STORAGE & INVENTORY MANAGEMENT

At Cardinal Expo, we provide more than just storage. We assess the conditions of all graphics and the exhibit, maintain quality by restoring any damages, store client property in our warehouse, take inventory of all assets, and search for opportunities for show-to-show cost savings.

 When Cardinal Expo manages your exhibit or premiums, we follow a process that tracks your elements to and from our facility. We document and photograph each stage, keeping our clients updated on each step along the way. This creates confidence and knowledge about your product and helps your team plan your budget for the next show.

SHOW SERVICES (3RD PARTY)

Our management of 3rd party show site services begins well before the event. Our coordinators source all needed information and order forms, set timelines and note discount deadlines, and preorder and pay for all 3rd party show services/utilities.

These services could include electrical, internet, lead retrieval, rigging, and material handling/drayage. Having Cardinal Expo handle these services helps ensure accuracy, reduce cost, and eliminate waste, and it is all compiled under a single purchase order to cover the entire year.

ARTWORK, GRAPHICS, & PRINT PRODUCTION

Need graphics for your exhibit? Cardinal Expo’s Design Team can provide graphic design services to create a cohesive look for your exhibit that works with any existing brand standards. We can also assist with the design and production of branded print collateral for your event.

Already have your own in-house designer?  Cardinal Expo will work as your partner to supply all of the details and specs that your team needs to develop branding and graphics for your exhibit. Once your graphics are complete, our team will add them to your exhibit and provide a 3-D rendering/proof before producing the final product.
