Plan for Your Next Chicago Trade Show

Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway airports provide convenient access to the Windy City from anywhere in the country. Chicago can be reached by train from all points east and west. Its Midwestern location makes it an ideal compromise for businesses with a national reach.

As one of the US’ main tourist and business destinations, Chicago has extensive infrastructure in place to accommodate out-of-town travelers. Hotels are available at every price point, both in the city proper and in the outer suburbs where many trade shows are held. If you have extra time, stay in town to take full advantage of the great food, art, museums and shopping the city has to offer.

Find Success at Your Next Trade Show

Chicago trade shows attract exhibitors from across the country. For smaller businesses looking to grow in a competitive industry, standing out from the crowd is essential. A bright, attractive display can make a huge impact, giving you an opportunity to sell your product or service to a broad audience.

APG Exhibits can help. We offer an extensive selection of trade show exhibits at various prices. Whatever your budget, we can match you with a unique display that will convey your brand in bright, vibrant color. The many products we offer range from full multimedia backdrops to banner stands, table clothes and other accessories.

Work With APG Exhibits

If you have plans to attend a Chicago trade show in the future, now is a good time to review your marketing materials and see if there’s room for improvement. A trade show display has to be up-to-date to be effective. Have you updated your logo recently? Expanded your product line? Changed your branding in any other way? If so, it’s a good idea to replace your display.

We provide in-house printing and design for all applicable products. We are capable of turning around large projects in a tight timeframe, ensuring you have a freshly printed display well in advance of your next big event. We work exclusively with manufacturers we trust to offer a carefully curated selection of products for all budgets.
