Community Event Support Services

In addition to the tasks listed above,  our unique community event support services include picking up your display and marketing materials at your office, or at another location, transporting everything to your event site, and setting up the exhibit to your specifications.  We may stay and assist your staff or leave and return at show’s end.  At show’s end, we dismantle the display, do minor cleaning, carefully pack and load all materials.  We  transport the materials to your office and stow everything per your instructions.  We will notify you of any cleaning and repairs that may be needed, or can perform these services on your request.  Your staff is able to focus on making contacts, while we do the tiring and dirty work.  When the event ends, your staff can leave or engage in post event activities, while we dismantle,  load and return materials as needed.  

No Contractor vs Employee Issues!

3.  Issues detailed invoices,  itemizing all services.

3.  Has multiple clients.

 Consulting Services

Exhibiting at trade shows and community events may appear intimidating and expensive.  These events exist because they are an important and efficient part of the marketing mix for many successful organizations.  If done well, in just a few hours or days, these events  generate a large inventory of contacts to be mined for months, leading to lot of new, cross-sell and and up-sell business .   If you don’t have a presence at events, you are not a choice!  If your competitors are exhibiting, guess who is talking to your customers and prospects. 

High Impact’s consulting services help clients find the events that will achieve their objectives, then help clients identify and use all the opportunities available before,  during and after an event to efficiently achieve objectives.  Why suffer the waste of staff and financial resources that may result from the use of  exhibit coordinators and exhibit staff  with little or no experience?  Why re-invent the wheel?   Take advantage of the over forty years of exhibit industry experience that we are more than willing to share with management and staff, with a focus on the client’s specific needs.

In addition to supervised on-the-job training and coaching,  for one person or a group, High Impact offers public and private workshops to train client staff.  (Read More  on Workshop and Classes)
