In Topic: Shipping For Show Across Country

26 February 2017 - 10:36 AM

I was just chatting with a couple from the west coast who does shows everywhere in the country. They said they now have two booths, one they keep at home and one they store with Art in Motion year-round for east coast shows. This is cheaper than shipping their booth cross-country multiple times per year. You would need to do a lot of shows to make this worthwhile, but I think this speaks to the cost of shipping a display cross-country.

She even said "I mean our whole display is from IKEA. It's almost cheaper just to throw it away and buy a new one each time!"

There are track lighting fixtures in my booth, those are mine. The grid of lighted dots you see in the ceiling in the background are the convention center's lights.

My new shelves, going to work for the first time. So far, I am endlessly pleased about them.

I happen to be setting up for a big show today. I'm seeing a lot of these rather than crates. It looks like a sturdy plastic pallet with everything secured on with stretch film. Also note that the top box looks a little damaged.

I've never done it myself, but I've been in shows where the artists come from across the country and many of them need to ship their display/work. All the shows seem to recommend Art in Motion (http://www.artmoves.biz).

I know you will need to purchase a shipping crate, and learn how to pack it. I bet Art in Motion can give you advice on that.

Good luck!
