Managing a Portable Trade Show Program (PTSP) can be daunting and time consuming; it’s also a drain on personnel and resources. There’s a solution – preparation.

In preparation for a show there is a laundry list of must-dos: registration; booking travel and lodging; finalizing on-site services; updating branding; gathering products needed for the exhibit— which needs to be

designed, curated, and packed to maximize efficiency and functionality; and, finalizing shipping logistics.

The tasks can feel overwhelming and the time to get it all done far too limited.

This is precisely where Studio Displays can help. Building a PTSP can be a game-changer for companies because the more effective the PTSP, the more successful the trade show; the more successful the trade show, the more dividends moving forward.

In that sense, a Portable Trade Show Program can grow your business in the long-run. It is important to do it right.

So, where do you start? Owning the right portable exhibit is key to a successful program. And the right portable exhibit is one that performs.

Here are our favorite steps to take — and the big questions we ask — when we talk PTSP.

Evaluate your Portable Trade Show Program.

  • Is the PTSP a positive source of energy for the company?
  • Is it moving the company forward and generating leads?
  • Or, it is a negative source of energy?
  • Does it require far too much attention, maintenance and resources?
  • Is it time to invest in a new PTSP for the company?

Consider investing in a new Portable Trade Show Program.


  • What is the exhibit made of?
  • How many hours does it take to setup and dismantle?
  • Does it require any tools?


  • Is it a system the company can grow with, or is it momentary?


  • Are they easy to install and change?
  • What’s the substrate?
  • How much does it cost to replace the graphics?
  • How do I keep my graphics clean?


  • How does it ship?
  • What containers will it ship in?
  • How much will it weigh?

Invest; then, make your Portable Trade Show Program perform.

With these considerations in mind, investing intelligently in a PTSP is easy — knowing how to make the exhibit perform is the hard part.
