Step 1:
Define your company profile

Are you a designer of custom exhibition stands? Create a stand builder profile for free and in a few clicks on our platform. Present your business in a few lines; delimit your areas of intervention; specify your minimum budget; define your favorite business sectors; upload photos of your latest achievements, specify your eco-responsible approach, etc.

Once your profile is finalized, the Allostand team will verify and activate it so that it is visible to exhibitors.

Step 2:
Receive qualified leads

Your profile is finalized and online on the platform, well done! Thousands of companies visit the Allostand platform every month to easily find the ideal stand builder for their tailor-made stand projects.

On Allostand, an exhibitor can request a maximum of 3 stand builders for his project.

If you are requested, you will receive an email notification giving you access to the basic elements of the project: name, date and location of the event, size of the stand, exhibitor's budget, etc. On the basis of these elements, we suggest that you accept or refuse the connections:

You wish to accept a project: click on "Buy the lead" and pay the amount indicated (between € 150 excl. Tax and € 300 excl. Tax depending on the stand's budget) to access the exhibitor's contact details and their specifications.

You wish to refuse the project: click on "Refuse this lead".

Please note: all stand projects posted on the platform are verified by the Allostand team. We make sure that companies exhibit at the events mentioned and that they have requested a limited number of service providers.

TIPS #1

We advise you to accept or refuse requests to connect exhibitors within 3 days. Thus, the exhibitor will not solicit other service providers outside the platform in order to move forward on his project. When you accept a lead, contact the exhibitor immediately to let them know that you are interested in their booth project.
