Advance Warehouse or Direct to Show Site?

Should I Ship My Trade Show Display to the Advance Warehouse or Direct to Show Site?

It's a question that comes up over and over. You've got your exhibitor show kit, you've decided what you're sending to the event, and now you have to decide if you're shipping your booth to the Advance Warehouse or Direct to Showsite. There are reasons to send to both, not limited to but including time, money and ease.

For ELITeXPO, our recommended choice will usually be Advance Warehouse when you have time. We do recommend you do the math when you are choosing one way over the other. You may think shipping direct to show is the cheaper way to go, however there are other things to consider.
