How much does a booth stand cost?

Update 2020

You want to participate in a trade or public fair and are in the process of creating a budget or cost estimate. You can set up your exhibition stand yourself, but you can also leave this to a professional stand builder who takes care of everything from a to z for you. But what are the prices and how are these built up? This is one of the most asked questions to our account managers. The prices of stand construction depend on a number of factors. On this page we try to explain to you in a simple way what influences the cost of your exhibition stand and how you can influence and estimate it yourself. You can also leave this to us and request a quote without obligation.

First of all, it is important whether you want to buy or rent a booth.

In the case of rent, you generally pay one amount per exhibition stand/participation. This amount includes the use of materials such as walls, floors, lighting, visuals, furniture and the costs of placing them and removing it. The advantage is that you don’t have to invest yourself and everything is arranged for you.

If you often participate in trade fairs or have very specific requirements, it can be interesting to buy your own stand. Then you can place them with your own staff or outsource it to a stand builder. Our experience is that if you participate in more than 4 fairs per year it can be interesting to buy a stand booth. Because The King of Exhibition Stands uses modular frames with high quality removable visuals it is also possible to buy a part and rent a part, depending on the size of the exhibition stand.

What cost items should I take into account when I want to exhibit and need a booth?

  • Cost of bare position space
  • Connections for electricity, internet, water, etc.
  • Walls
  • Floors
  • Lighting
  • Hanging points for trus, banners or high walls.
  • Furniture
  • Visuals

Is standard shell scheme cheaper?

Many exhibition organisers offer standard stand construction, where you can get a complete package at a fixed price per m2 with often:

  • Carpeting in colour of your choice.
  • Simple system walls in white, black or colour of your choice.
  • Light spots
  • Board/housing with company name and booth number
  • Small electricity connection
  • Cleaning the booth during the fair.

The prices of standard stand construction are on average between 75 and 150 euros per m2 of stand space and these costs are on top of the cost for the bare m2 stand space. If you have a small stand (16m2) it is often the cheapest to use standard stand construction because an external stand builder has high base costs. < For example, the Standbouw Koning has a minimum order amount of 2500 euros per exhibition stand.

If your booth is larger, we advise you to always request a comparative quote because you can often achieve a more luxurious and distinctive stand for the same rate. This is already possible from 100 euros /m2 including design furniture.
