Before the Show - The Plan

Strategy Sessions

GES is available for strategy sessions before each show to help you with floor plans, entrance and directional treatments, color and graphics schemes, special events, and labor jurisdictions.

Budgeting and Cost Modeling

GES will provide an estimated budget for all services on an ongoing basis, updating as needed throughout the planning process. For accurate future cost modeling, GES will develop long term forecasting based on shows of similar size in your destination cities.

Event Timeline

GES will provide you with a complete event and service schedule timeline three weeks prior to each annual conference and exhibition.

Meetings with Labour

Labor rules differ from city to city and may be confusing. GES will summon union business agents, stewards, and facility managers to discuss and explain the labor nuances in each city. Our own labor specialists are always available to answer your questions about contract negotiations, work rule improvement programs, safety and training.

Exhibitor Service Manuals

Attention is paid to the layout and organization of the service kit to facilitate use by the exhibitor. Show Management and General information sections are clearly labeled and easily located by tab indexes and bold-faced headings, and order forms are easily identifiable.

We work closely with you in providing proofs of the service manual design and layout and can provide management with a sample kit for this purpose.
