How to estimate the budget for a bespoke exhibition stand?

The average budget allocated to the design and construction of a tailor-made stand represents 30% of an exhibitor's trade fair budget. Everything then depends on your specifications (materials used, rental of audio-visual equipment, raised access floor, high sign, etc.)
At Allostand, we advise you to allow an average budget of between € 300 / sq.m and € 600 / sq.m for your tailor-made stand project. This budget is given for information only and may vary depending on your brief.

What information about my stand project should I provide?

What does your budget include (design, production, build up, disassembly, furniture, etc.)? What is the size of your stand? What's your schedule? What are your exhibition goals? What integrated services from the provider are you expecting? As much information as possible!
This is why we support you in writing your specifications through a complete form that will allow us to offer you the most suitable stand builders for your stand project.

I have submitted a project and I am not offered a stand builder.

No stand builder is offered to you after submitting your project? Some of the criteria you have entered need to be reviewed (often the budget). You can return to your stand project to modify certain criteria.
