It is funny how a simple choice can make an enormous difference in our lives, don’t you think?
And in our industry, everything is about those little details that can make our work easier or complicate everything, in this case.
In my years of experience, I have faced several challenges, and I have learned that creativity and planning are the keys to success.
This is where the importance of choosing the right exhibition systems, partners, and suppliers lies. Because these decisions will not only make the flux of work more manageable, but it will also save us a lot of money and headaches.
And right now, I have been able to prove the relevance of this. In times of uncertainty like the ones we are living, I realized a simple decision became such a lifesaver.
Amid this wave of events cancellation, where so many of us have struggled to keep our business running and losing a lot of money, I had an ace under my sleeve without really knowing it.
At Happy Projects, we have managed to contain the losses to a minimum because we decided to use a frame system for our stands in the past (and future), and this kept us a little bit healthier financially. Among its main benefits (quicker assembly, reusable, durable, recyclable, and manageable), the most important is sustainability, not because your projects are 85% green, but because “it gives you more profit than other methods of building.”
By using this system, we are going to be able to reuse the stands once we go back to work, just pull it from our inventory and reuse.
That is how a simple decision six years ago changed the whole game for us and saved our business.
If we have chosen to continue using wood for our stands, we will be facing a completely different scenario with significant financial loss and high costs. Because we know it is costly, not reusable, and difficult to store, among not being good for the environment at all.
We have always believed in the importance of making a long-term strategic plan and great commercial partnerships. Now, we know that simple actions can lead to great solutions.
I would like to hear from you and create a community where we can share knowledge and stories that will help us get through this together as a united industry. Tell me, what has been your experience? How do you plan to do differently once our event life goes back to normal?
