Blair’s exhibit specialists, warehousemen, drivers and I&D staff are responsible for the packing, delivery and installation of tradeshow displays, corporate environment, casework, graphics and other components for tradeshow exhibits. It is not unusual for them to handle valuable client‐owned properties and they always do so with extreme care. Typically Blair uses its own fleet of vehicles (i.e., tractor trailers, box trucks, vans, and pick‐up trucks) for local deliveries. Long distance deliveries are contracted through reliable and proven professional carriers experienced in white glove door‐to‐door handling and transporting of exhibit properties.
Blair, Inc. maintains a staff of Carpenters and Fabricators who are members of Local 491 Carpenters Union. Union installers are granted free access to all shows and are permitted to perform the installation and dismantle labor. This practice benefits clients by providing experienced personnel who are already familiar with specific.
When an I & D Supervisor is retained for a show clients should expect him to: assemble and supervise a crew, will check the exhibit each morning before show opening as well closing to insure the environment stays clean and confirm AV equipment is functioning properly. In addition the supervisor will pull, prep and load the exhibit for transport and understand the customer’s requirements and schedule. For the Washington DC Metro area shows, Blair has staff on site for the duration of the show so they may be available should an immediate need arise.
