Essential Resources for your Exhibition or Trade Show

Do you have a stand at an upcoming trade show in Ireland? Exhibiting your products or services at The Aviva or Croke Park in the New Year? If so, you have come to the right place. Reads Print & Stationery have compiled our years of expertise with businesses to outline the essential items for your upcoming event. Whether you are running the event, or have purchased an area for your business, make sure to read on below so you don’t miss anything on that all important checklist!


1) Business Cards

If you have purchased space at a Conference filled with your target audience, then branding will be vital. Get more than enough business cards printed and have them on your person and your table to hand out to potential customers.

2) Pop Up Display Units

The Pop up display Unit is the bones of your exhibition. The branding is important here again, as well as the size compared to your neighbouring exhibitors. You do not want to have the smallest display in the room. Practicality is also key for setting up your stand and leaving at the end of the day.

3) Rollup Banners

Rollup Banners are strategically positioned in your area, usually one on either side, to be aesthetically pleasing and eye catching. Make sure to let the experts get your branding right by contacting the designer on the website. These banners are easy to transport, as well as being light, compact and easy to store.

4) Promotional Products

Business Cards should not be the only branded material on your desk. Why not offer potential customers something they can use to remember your brand, such as a branded pen, keyring, mug or bag. These products are appealing and a great way to get your company seen. Perhaps bring some personalised mugs to give away as part of a competition.

5) T-Shirts

If there is a group of employees going along to warden your stand, it is a good idea to have them wearing the same t-shirt with your brand logo on the front. The idea is that your stand may be more approachable in this format, and it gives off a more positive, warmer sentiment about your business.

For event organisers, there are plenty more essentials. A large scale event taking place in Dublin generally has 8+ speakers, and 12 plus exhibiting businesses, along with hundreds of guests. To facilitate these, make sure to cross off all of the essentials to avoid any disasters on the day. These event organiser essentials include:

  • Lanyards
  • Microphone
  • Tickets
  • Lighting sources
  • Extension cords
  • T-Shirts
  • Stationery & Paper
  • Badges
