The Real Picture : Buy Displays On The Internet…Buyer Beware.

Buy Displays On The Internet…Buyer Beware.


It’s not hard. A simple Google search will bring up more than you could usefully process. Pop Ups, back walls, kiosks, banner stands, tents…anything you could possibly want, right? Well, sort of. What may not be clear from online merchants, is the country of origin of the new cornerstone to your trade marketing presence. Don’t get us wrong, this isn’t blind patriotism or bashing of foreign products; it’s simply a reminder that two potentially hand wringing outcomes are possible. The first is that what you receive isn’t what you bought. It’s close, but…

The other is that is arrives damaged, or soon becomes unusable due to a component failure. With so many knock off products in the marketplace, finding the correct parts is sometimes impossible, and if you’re lucky enough to find them, you still have to make the repairs yourself. Warranty and replacement timing? Don’t get us started. We’ve had to break this news to more than a few “bargain” shoppers, over the years.

Our suggestion? Purchase your display products from a reputable distributor of reputable display systems. You might be surprised to find that some of these originated in Europe, but have established distributor networks here at home. BSI Exhibits is proud to be a trusted distributor of Nomadic brand display products, but there are others: Skyline, Nimlok, and Abex, to name a few. Whichever brand you chose, you will have the peace of mind that guarantees, should there ever be an issue with a display purchase, you have your distributor available to make things right…right now.

Trust your exhibit program, and your budget, to the company with over 70 years of experience.
