What is a Trade Show Pavilion?
Trade show pavilions present an industry as a whole, represented by multiple individual exhibitors in a professional, competitive environment in a prime show floor location, under one national, industry, or theme brand.
The pavilion brand serves as a unifying element for the exhibitors, their industry and/or their country of origin. It positions and promotes the exhibitors and their business, products, services and individual brands, and serves as a quality standard for representing the exhibitors and their products as high quality and their businesses as reliable.
Companies often prefer exhibiting in a pavilion setting at international trade shows as pavilions offer global opportunities without the complications of exhibiting overseas with language barriers and cultural differences, currency exchange rates, red tape, varying and incomprehensible show regulations, and unreliable local contractors, allowing exhibitors to focus on exhibiting objectives. Companies might opt for showcasing their products in a domestic pavilion to take advantage of a more advantageous exhibition location and the perks that come with being part of a collective display.
Pavilion exhibitors retain their own identity while benefitting from being part of a more visible and powerful collaborative efforts, as pavilions help visitors easier find specific exhibits.
Pavilions offer cost-saving participation options and shared services, target audience reach and business opportunities in a competitive setting with in-market opportunities to interact with buyers, clients, associates and media.
Pavilions encourage industry cooperation through joint promotion and networking activities.
