Champion Exposition Services recently announced its new Champion Exhibitor Zip bundled package, a premier service that offers exhibitors a streamlined process and fixed rates for round-trip point-to-point material handling and shipping.
“Exhibitor Zip is part of Champion’s ongoing and integrated efforts to ease the process and planning for exhibitors and show organizers,” said Blythe Hess, senior VP of products and services for Champion. “Bundled pricing is a convenient material handling and shipping option for exhibitors and with fixed pricing, it provides them the ability to accurately budget for their event.”
Champion Exhibitor Zip offers one fixed rate which includes roundtrip shipping as well as pick-up, storage and delivery of empty containers. The premier service includes a personal account representative to coordinate all shipping details throughout the event planning process and on-site at the tradeshow. Advanced warehouse delivery with complimentary storage for up to 30 days, priority loading and unloading, pre-printed labels and shipping documents and shipment tracking and delivery notification with all charges included directly on one Champion master invoice is also part of the service.
Zip was designed to allow exhibitors to focus on their tradeshow goals, instead of their shipping.
“Participating in an expo show and not knowing the full-costs can be problematic to keeping the project on budget,” said Jerry D. Holcombe, special projects coordinator at the BloodCenter of Wisconsin, who utilized bundled pricing recently offered at the AABB Annual Meeting and CTTXPO. “We really appreciated the bundling billing. It made shipping and handling far simpler for us and the fact that it was included in the up-front price quote was fantastic,”
For more than a year, Champion has piloted bundled pricing of materials and transportation for a few industry tradeshows. The expanded bundled package service, powered by Champion Shipping Systems, will be available beginning in January 2011 as a shipping option for events planned for spring 2011 and beyond.
