Things to consider before shipping exhibits and materials to trade shows by courier

Before booking delivery for trade booths and shipping displays to events and exhibitions in Europe or overseas, there are a few things to keep in mind to minimise the risk of damage during transport and to avoid any other issues These include:

Packing

Before shipping displays to and from exhibitions, proper dismantling and packaging are crucial – a damaged display is unlikely to attract new customers and you don’t want to lose your display products before you get there. Pallet delivery to international trade fairs and events is the ideal solution for delivering trade booths to events around Europe and overseas. For guidelines see our dedicated page. For packing instructions for a range of different smaller items, see our pack and ship pages.

Prohibited and restricted items

Always check that your expo displays and products aren’t considered prohibited or restricted by couriers to avoid failed deliveries when shipping to trade shows and exhibitions in Europe and overseas.

Customs procedures and regulations

When shipping to exhibitions overseas, you should check the local customs regulations carefully, to ensure your products or displays are not prohibited from entering the country.

Insurance and tracking

All standard shipments booked through Eurosender are covered by basic insurance included in the price, and additional insurance is available to purchase at discounted rates. Furthermore, when booking with Eurosender, you can easily track your trade show display shipments every step of the way.

Common issues when shipping displays to exhibitions and how to avoid them

Arrived too late
Exhibitors are given a specific time-frame for deliveries to take place before the event, but if your exhibition stand arrives too late, you may lose your opportunity to showcase your products at the event. Make sure you book your delivery ahead of time and select the earliest possible pick-up date during the booking process.
Incorrect delivery entrance
Most convention centres have multiple loading docks, to cater to the many exhibitors shipping displays and products ahead of the trade show, all at the one time. Be sure to provide your allocated dock number before shipping exhibits and materials to trade shows by courier.
No onsite delivery contact
You should always provide the full contact information of an onsite trade show contact, who will be responsible for overseeing the delivery of trade booths to events overseas. Be sure to provide a local telephone number in case the courier decides to call.
Missing address information
Providing an accurate and complete address, including the name of the building or complex, full name of the trade show, event hall and trade show booth number, is essential to ensuring successful delivery. See our example below.
Labelling
Most trade shows may also provide you with forwarding labels which tell receivers where your products and stands should be delivered too inside the event. Be sure to label all boxes, pallets and displays carefully.

Providing a correct address when shipping to exhibitions in Europe and overseas

One of the most essential things when arranging delivery to a shared workspace is the address. Errors in the address bar are often the reason for a failed delivery when sending a parcel to a coworking space. To avoid this inconvenience, follow the guidelines below to ensure you receive your parcel to the correct coworking space address.

  1. Country
    Choose the country of pick-up/delivery.
    Ex.: Germany
  2. Name & Surname
    Add the name of the trade show, followed by the full name of the consignee.
    Ex.: Ambiente Consumer Goods Expo, John Graham
  3. Address
    Fill out the address in full, including the name of the convention centre.
    Ex.: Messe Frankfurt GmbH, Dock 3, Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1
  4. Additional info – Optional
    Keep in mind that the courier doesn’t always take this info into consideration.
    Ex. Booth no. 62, ‘Containers and More’
  5. Zip code
    Add the zip code
    Ex.: 60327
  6. Town/city
    Add the full name of the town or city.
