Custom vs. Ready-Made Exhibition Stand: Which Is Better?

Ready made and custom exhibition stands

In the ever-evolving landscape of trade shows and exhibitions, the choice between custom display stands and a ready-made one is a pivotal decision that exhibitors face. The path one takes can significantly impact their brand’s visibility, budget, and overall success at the event. Both options, custom and ready-made stands, come with their distinct advantages and drawbacks. Today, we’ll dissect the pros and cons of various display stands, helping you make an informed decision on various types of exhibition stands based on your specific needs and goals. 

The Appeal of Ready-Made Exhibition Stands: Convenience  

A ready-made exhibition stand, also known as premade or prefab exhibition stands, are a popular choice for exhibitors seeking a quick, hassle-free setup. This prebuilt stand comes pre-designed, with fixed size, layout and structure, making them a convenient choice for those with limited time or resources. The primary advantage of ready-made exhibition stands is their speed of installation; they can be bought off-the-shelf, set up in a matter of hours, saving valuable time and reducing stress. Ready-made display stands can also carry your brand effectively. Since your booth design becomes standardised, exhibit-goers can immediately identify your brand whatever expo you join.

The Elegance of Custom-Built Exhibition Stands: Crafted to Perfection 

On the other end of the spectrum, we have the custom exhibition stands. These display stands offer unparalleled creative freedom, enabling exhibitors to design a booth that perfectly aligns with their brand identity and messaging. From unique layouts and distinctive graphics to specific lighting and interactive elements on custom exhibition, the possibilities are boundless. Custom display stands create a memorable presence on the exhibition floor, leaving an indelible impression on attendees. However, the downside is the cost and time involved. A custom display set is typically more expensive, and the design and construction process can take weeks or even months, which might not align with exhibitors with tight budget and schedules. 

Customisation: A Touch of Individuality 

While ready-made stands may be limited in terms of customisation, Exhibit Central’s lightbox stands bridge that gap. Exhibitors can choose from a wide range of graphics, lighting options, and accessories to create a booth that reflects their unique brand identity. This level of customisation on display stands allows for a memorable and impactful presence on the exhibition floor, helping exhibitors stand out from the competition. 

Cost-Effectiveness: Savings without Sacrificing Quality 

The cost factor often plays a significant role in the decision-making process for customers. Custom-designed stands can be expensive, and ready-made stands may not provide the desired level of branding. Exhibit Central offers a cost-effective range solution by providing high-quality, customisable set at a fraction of the price of traditional custom stands. The ability to reuse components for multiple events further enhances the cost-effectiveness of these stands.

Ease of Installation: Effortless Setup and Dismantling 

Exhibit Central’s lightbox stands are designed for easy installation. The modular components come in a set that fit together seamlessly, and the clear instructions make the procedure straightforward. This ease of use eliminates the need for specialised labour or extensive training, reducing the overall setup time and minimising the potential for errors during installation. Customers can confidently set up their booth, knowing that the installation will be smooth and efficient, allowing them to focus on other critical aspects of the exhibit. 

A Closer Look at Exhibit Central’s Lightbox Stands 

Exhibit Central’s lightbox stands have been gaining significant traction in Australia, and for good reasons. These stands offer a range of sizes and configurations to suit various exhibition spaces and requirements. The high-quality materials and attention to detail ensure that your brand’s image is presented in the best possible light. The ability to switch out graphics and components gives you the versatility to adapt to changing marketing strategies or event themes. Moreover, the durability of these stands ensures that your investment will last for multiple expositions, making it cost-effective in the long run. With Exhibit Central’s lightbox stands, you’re not just getting a booth; you’re getting a flexible, customisable, and portable solution that can elevate your brand’s presence at any exhibition space. 

Made-to-order stands


Flexibility: Exhibit Central’s Lightbox Stands Shine 

Enter Exhibit Central’s lightbox stand, a revolutionary solution that offers the best of both worlds: the flexibility and customisation of a custom stand, combined with the convenience and efficiency of a ready-made stand. The hallmark feature of these stands is their modular design. They consist of easily interchangeable components that can be quickly assembled and disassembled, providing exhibitors with the ability to adapt their booth to different spaces and events. This modularity not only offers customisation but also ensures cost savings as the same components can be reused for multiple times. 

Adaptability on the Fly: A Competitive Edge 

One of the standout advantages of Exhibit Central‘s lightbox display is its adaptability. Exhibitors can effortlessly reconfigure the layout, change graphics, and add or remove components to suit the unique requirements of each event. This level of flexibility ensures that the booth remains fresh and engaging, even when participating in multiple exhibitions with varying booth sizes and configurations. Ready-made stands often lack this adaptability, and custom stands can be too rigid for such dynamic adjustments. 

Portability: Convenience Beyond Compare 

Exhibit Central’s lightbox stands are designed with portability in mind. The lightweight components can be packed into compact cases, making transportation a breeze. This is a significant advantage, especially for exhibitors who participate in multiple events or need to ship their booth to different locations. The convenience of portability reduces logistics costs and simplifies the entire trade show process, giving exhibitors more time to focus on their core objectives. 

Flexible setup for exhibition lightboxes


The choice between a custom-built exhibition booth and a ready-made one depends on various factors, including budget, timeline, and desired level of customisation.  

However, with Exhibit Central’s lightbox stands, exhibitors can enjoy the benefits of both options. The flexibility, modularity, and portability of these stands make them a compelling choice for exhibitors who want a customised and impactful presence at trade shows and exhibitions without the high costs and logistical challenges typically associated with custom exhibition display.  

When it comes to ready-made custom exhibition stands, prefab display stands, and premade exhibition stands, Exhibit Central’s lightbox stands truly offer the best of both worlds, providing a winning combination of quality, adaptability, cost-effectiveness, and customisation, ensuring a successful expo experience for all.
