Some tips for submitting a relevant brief

Fill in your brief as much as possible

Allostand's algorithm crosses the information in your brief with the criteria of the profiles of exhibition stand manufacturers referenced on the platform. The more detailed your specifications, the more Allostand will be able to offer you relevant service providers. Do not neglect the non-mandatory fields in the project submission form, they will allow you to refine your search and quickly find the right exhibition stand manufacturer for your stand project.

Set a realistic budget

When you submit your stand project on the platform, we ask you to indicate a budget range. Count on average between € 300 and € 600 per sq.m depending on the specifics of your project. This budget depends on the expected service: stand design, production, assembly, dismantling, storage, etc. We invite you to indicate a realistic budget in order to suggest relevant stand builders.

Use geolocation criteria

The Allostand platform allows you to solicit exhibition stand agencies close to the venue of the event or close to the domicile of your company. Do you want to reduce your environmental footprint and optimize transport costs? Then ask stand builders close to the location of the event. Do you want to meet physically with the service providers requested before making your choice? Then solicit stand designers close to the domicile of your company.

Play the game with the solicited stand builders

Allostand is a qualified lead generation platform for stand builders. The stand designers you hire pay to access your brief and contact details. We therefore make sure that the submitted stand projects are complete and that they can lead to a market for stand builders. As the service is free for exhibitors, we invite you to: respond to the service providers you have requested, follow up on files, explain your choice when an exhibition stand designer has not been selected for your stand project.
