How much does it cost to rent a Double Deck Exhibit?
Prices range from $30,000, about the cost of an island exhibit rental, to $250,000 for a huge deck with offices and large gathering areas.
A huge benefit is turnkey services that include transportation to and from the show and labor and graphics production.
We specialize in renting Double Decks in Las Vegas and other areas. It’s what we do. TurnKey Service means just that. We start with the design process and establish your desired look and functionality. Generally, you’ll know exactly what your total cost will be at that point. There are no surprises!
We bill transportation, set up, and dismantle labor on one pre-show invoice. However, we assist in several ways during the production process. We anticipate electrical requirements based on everything in your booth space during the design process. Some clients have specialized equipment or pre-existing exhibit properties that are to be combined in the same booth space.
We’ll provide a grid map with dimensions indicating your main electric drop and outlet locations throughout your booth space. We indicate how many amps are required at all locations. This is a show requirement and a very important one! Nothing starts until the electric is down before the carpet is laid.
Part of that includes a booth orientation diagram that allows everyone involved to be sure which direction is front by indicating adjacent booth space numbers. Oftentimes, this is dealt with early on because booth location often affects the design. Again, because we do this all the time, reviewing the Exhibitor Guide and viewing the trade show floor map is often required early on.
Minimum and maximum exhibit rental costs
The minimum cost to rent a TurKey Double Deck is about $27,000 in Las Vegas. The low average cost is about $35,000 for our most popular exhibit in Las Vegas, the ME2020, complete with graphics. That includes transportation to and from the show, set up, and dismantle labor. The next closest Double Deck design is the EX2020 Tri-level exhibit, two-level upper deck and the 10 ft. h ceiling under the raised portion at ground level, which are quite unique! Our maximum cost is about $250,000 for our largest Double Deck designs. Again, we provide published pricing and itemization for each design we offer.
Costs include graphics as well. We provide easy-to-understand graphics callout spec sheets and pre-production proofs for your approval. Once your design is finalized, we will provide a photorealistic rendering showing your graphics! We utilize several different graphic materials, each ideally suited for the particular application required.
TurnKey Trade Show Services Management
When exhibitors use show labor, the required forms specify set-up and dismantle times precisely. We look at your target move-in date and establish that for you. We need to do that to ensure that your exhibit is complete and ready to go on deadline. This touches on another cost that many clients don’t need to consider. Overtime vs. Straight time Union Labor billing. We provide a fixed cost invoice for set up and dismantle regardless of the show-mandated schedule. This is one of the most common areas of cost overruns. Labor rates are often over $100 per hour. Overtime is time and a half making it $150. Sometimes it can go to $200 hr. Multiply that x 3-4 set-up people; it can easily be over $500 hr. You don’t need to worry about that when working with TurnKey Trade Show Exhibit Rentals. Labor cost is fixed on one pre-show invoice.
Other Show Services Management requirements
We provide the necessary EAC (Exhibitor Appointed Contract) forms and Insurance Certificates required by the show. This, along with correct electric grid maps relate to the fundamentals. If you need assistance with other show forms, we can help.
Back to the basics
In addition to the cost in time managing the process for each show, evaluating the cost of renting vs. ownership includes many factors. Key among them is storage. After that, most exhibit houses bill for pre-show and post-show set-up at their facility to assess damages that require repair and assure that there are no surprises at the next show. It’s like setting up and dismantle labor three times for each show. So storage and management between shows can cost a lot of money you save when renting.
The total cost benefit of renting your custom Double Deck
In the end, essentially, you receive discounted labor because that cost is established during the quoting process, despite show mandated set-up hours which may or may not be at straight-time hourly rates. The cost of the time required of your own staff when you manage your own exhibit includes the cost of things they cannot do. Managing the process is time-consuming.
Whether your show is in Las Vegas or a venue in another city, we take care of all the details. In the end, renting makes a lot of sense!
We look forward to working with you! Please Contact us for additional information!
