BILL FROM DISPLAYS 4 MEDIA SAYS:

There are quite a few changes in this industry having a major impact. 

 

 1. Too many trade suppliers all selling pretty much the same products.

 2. One impact of above is significant downward price pressure.

​ 3. Another impact of above is that to achieve sales many suppliers have expanded the definition of an exhibition displays trade account to include any kind of printer and now any marketing, design and PR agency - they used to be our clients.

4. For these "new outlets" as described above, displays are simply an add on to existing business and therefore not as profit sensitive - happy to work with margins a dedicated display company could not survive on.

5. We have experienced only one new major supplier product range launch since starting our business 10 years ago - iPad / tablet stands. Every other product launch has offered us nothing other than an alternative to existing products.

 

What I have described above is happening in all sorts of markets and is impossible to stop. The quick answer is for us to add other print options and marketing, design and PR services to our offering - I am just too old to do that! Happy days."
