Renting a trade show display in Chicago
Renting a trade show display for a show in Chicago can give you the most bang for your buck. A trade show booth rental can save money and give you greater flexibility. Renting with people who know Chicago can cut costs in related trade show services. We know Chicago and we can compete with any Chicago based rental company on design, service and price. If you also exhibit in Las Vegas we can give you a great two show rental package that will cut costs in shipping, storage, graphic production and setup labor.

Union Climate in Chicago – Chicago trade shows are dominated by the local Carpenters union. The local Carpenters provides most of union workers to the show organizers in Chicago, and to many of the independent labor companies that operate in Chicago. The local electrical union provides the Electricians. There is also a rigging union for installing hanging signs and theatrical truss above your display booth. In general we find Chicago becoming more tolerant when it comes to union restrictions, about the same as Las Vegas, but not as tolerance as Orlando.
Chicago has one of the country’s major trade show venues. The McCormick Place Convention Center. Some of the worlds largest trade shows are held in this venues. Few other cities offer food, lodging, meeting facilities, culture and entertainment like Chicago.
For after hours Urban Spoon is always a great resource for finding popular restaurants close you wherever you are.
Tip: Ship your freight to advance warehouse. Often shows offer lower drayage fees on advance freight. Advance freight is moved onto the show floor before any direct trade show freight is allowed in the building, so your labor crews won’t be delayed.
Tip: For direct deliveries to trade shows in Orlando, plan that your driver will be routing thru the marshalling yard process. The marshalling process can take 1-3 hours from the driver check in time to the time the freight arrives in your booth display space depending on the show.
