Have you ever wondered what goes into setting up a booth for an outdoor show – or any show, for that matter? Whether indoors or out, the booth usually looks the same. However, there are some challenges inherent in outdoor shows that make them much more difficult and stressful than indoor shows.
For starters, the vast majority of outdoor shows require setup the morning of the show itself, whereas indoor shows typically allow for setup the day before. So, for an outdoor show that starts at 10:00 a.m., a vendor ideally would be set up by 9:30 because many folks arrive early. The early shoppers tend to be serious shoppers, so if you snooze, you lose.
