I am on a Budget and want to attend an Expo. Are stands expensive?
Do not worry if you are on a budget, we will adapt our design to fit your budget. Share your budget with us and we will help you find what works best for you.
I need a stand that can change for different events, but I don’t want a portable stand. Do you have a product that meets my needs?
At Octametro we work with a state of the art construction system that can variate heights and shapes using the same aluminum profiles, which can adapt to any images you want to change. A combination of custom design and this system lets you change your image for every event.
What is Drayage?
It is the cost of handling the stand and exhibition material inside the venue. This cost is charged by the event host who has the licenses and insurance for such work.
Who takes care of the electricity for the booth?
The host of the event hires a company that takes care of the electricity for all the booths of the expo. The companies that are participating in the expo have to pay to the electricity company directly. If you wish to make the process quicker and avoid having to contact the different entities, we can help you by taking care of the costs and then billing them directly to you.
