Korean MNC and electronics giant – Samsung Electronics launched Galaxy S5 in its popular smart phone segment in India in March earlier this year. Samsung planned a three month activation campaign across tier 1 and tier 2 Indian cities. The activity intended to create buzz and acquaint customers with the phone’s high end features.
Samsung Galaxy S5 activations were divided into 3 phases:
Insta was onboard as a Single Point of Contact for the above phases including complete project planning and management. A customized set up for the Demo zone was manufactured at their in-house plant. Creeya™ modular solution was used for Mall Activations and Corporate Activations in Phase 2 and 3 of the campaign. This facilitated a re-usable solution to maintain competitive price and speed of installation for a project of this scale. Overall, practical implications of Samsung’s designs were ensured irrespective of multiple venues set up restrictions and I&D; timelines.
The kits were stored at Insta’s strategically located warehouses until next show date. Insta’s dynamic team also ensured smooth execution of all events that needed to run parallelly across multiple locations with short deadlines.
184 installations across 13 cities in India between May and July
A Successful launch indeed!
Tata Motors launched Tata ‘Zest’ – A compact sedan in the passenger vehicle segment in August. Zest was Tata Motors’ new offering in four years and hence all eyes were on its launch. As part of its marketing campaign, Tata Motors needed Zest branding for their 200+ dealership network across India.
Insta’s AIRLITE™ portable retail kits were offered and finalized by Tata Motors for their dealer showrooms. Design and manufacturing for Zest dealer kits were bound by strict timelines since the activity would be preceded by collateral ATL marketing for its new model. Airlite™ solution’s tool less attribute allowed dealers to set up the kits in less than 1 hour with the help of a step by step instruction manual. A special ‘Zest kit’ installation video was also created to help dealers with its quick set up.

So you’ve decided upon an exhibition platform for your brand. What next? Choosing the right space to exhibit.
Event organizers offer 2 types of exhibition space – Shell Scheme and Space Only. To choose the right space, you must understand what each of these have to offer.
Shell scheme stands consist of a booth with basic elements such as carpet, table & chairs and fascia. Utilities like electricity sockets and water may be provided by the organizer. Generally, a row of such identical stands are pre-built and sold as a shell scheme package. These are 2 or 3 side open; ceiling may or may not be present. Optional branding elements such as pop-ups, kiosks and brochure stands can be arranged separately by sub-contracting. Expenses for these must be borne by the exhibitor.
Organizer will only provide raw space. Everything else must be arranged by the exhibitor. Exhibition services contractors can be hired to build your booth from scratch. Space only does not have height or area restrictions like shell scheme. Sky is the limit for creativity.
Which one is right for you?
Shell scheme booths are expensive when buying, but fall cheaper in the long run since basic items are provided as a package by the organizer. Go for shell scheme if it is your first time at the exhibition. They are cost effective and a viable option for SME’s on a tight budget.
Space only is cheaper when buying but has additional expenses of booth design, fabrication and I&D. If you have exhibited at the show earlier and/or are confident of better ROI, opt for Space only. These booths help stand out from the crowd. MNC’s and companies with large portfolio prefer these for its flexibility. If not limited by budget constraints, space only is an apt choice.
