Advantages of Modular Exhibits Over the Close Substitutes

Advantages of Modular Exhibits Over the Close Substitutes

More and more exhibitors nowadays, especially in exhibitions where competition for attention is rife, are opting to make use of modular exhibits, rather than the traditional exhibits. The firms that are in the business of selling these modular display exhibits are doing booming business. And many firms, even those highly constrained financially, are opting to make the little extra investment required to get to use the modular display exhibits. This is a decision that is, for the most part, influenced by the considerable advantages that the modular exhibits offer, as compared to their close substitutes. Let us explore some of those.

1. Ease of use. The beauty of modular display exhibits is that virtually anybody can operate them. Indeed, where they are used, it is the very people who are sent to the exhibition who are also responsible for operating them (rather than sending technicians alongside). This makes the modular display exhibits very unlike the traditional systems, whose moment to moment operation was usually so complex that one had to send electronic technicians alongside the exhibitors. By making the exhibitors to also serve as the operators, the modular exhibits more than justify their cost.

2. Portability. Another point of beauty in modular display exhibits is that they can easily be carried around; with most being presented in a form that makes it possible to be folded into packages that a single person can easily carry. Obviously this is unlike the case with their substitutes, which are usually highly complex system, with many component parts – often requiring a huge truck to carry from exhibition to another. In addition to making them more convenient to move between exhibitions, the improved portability of modular exhibits also translates into savings in transport costs, making them all the more attractive.

3. Configurability. This is where the display exhibits can be configured differently, depending on the size and circumstances of each exhibition where they are used. And it sets them apart from traditional display systems – which were not configurable. Using such systems, people often found themselves having to buy absolutely new systems in the face of different types of shows: like where the display system you used in the last exhibition proves absolutely ‘out of place’ in the next exhibition you have to take place in.

4. Flexibility. This is closely related to configurability. It is where the modular exhibits are created in such a way that they can be adjusted and customized, to meet the display needs every exhibition where they are used comes with. This is unlike the traditional systems, which tended to be rigid; so that when faced with different exhibition circumstances (and virtually exhibition is different), one had to make the painful choice between having to buy another system, or making do with an obviously out-of-place display system.

5. Cost-effectiveness. This is the factor that is born of all the previous four. Ease of use, for instance, translates to labor savings, as the exhibitors can also serve as operators. Portability translates to transport cost savings, while flexibility and configurability translate to versatility, where the same display system can be used conveniently in multiple settings.
