One of the time-honored but pain-in-the-butt traditions show organizers, exhibitors, sponsors and managers endure before and after every event is the shipping shuffle. They spend precious time getting everything ready, packing it all up and sending it off for lands known and not, hoping everything gets to its destination not only in one piece, but gets there at all.
We’ve all heard of and witnessed the nightmares. Missing booths, collateral, lighting equipment, schwag, tables and table tents, etc. That’s no fun.
It’s especially no fun when the investment put toward a trade show is one of the biggest line items some companies invest in marketing all year, only to have part or all of their hard work get “lost” somewhere en-route to the show. That’s why we’ve partnered with Agistix, which will serve as our exclusive shipping resource. As of today, Agistix will handle all inbound and outbound trade show logistical requirements for Confabb customers.
Agistix provides a web-based enterprise logistics solution called Logistics Management Automation, which helps companies get a grip on all of their shipments through a carrier-neutral system. The result is reduced costs, increased efficiency and improved “process compliance.”
Welcome aboard, Agistix! If you’re a show organizer, company marketing manager, attendee or badgered booth-babe, come talk to us about Agistix. We’ll put your shipping fears at ease so you can focus on generating business for your business at its next big industry event.
