Trade shows, exhibits, and event crates face a busy, turbulent environment that can quickly damage low-quality crates. Custom and reusable trade-show-friendly crates from MEI Rigging & Crating are designed to help.

Durable Crates for Even the Heaviest Cargo

Trade show exhibit crates require the thickest plywood possible to withstand the weight of heavy cargo. At MEI Rigging & Crating, we have priority access to thick, high-quality, and large dimensional plywood—even when other crating companies are out of stock. We also use thicker and stronger cleats on our trade show exhibit crates for extra support.

Custom and Effective Trade Show Crates

Each MEI trade show crate is tailored to the needs of your project. As with all trade show exhibit crates, we ensure the roof and at least one wall is removable. We often engineer butterfly latches onto these crates, making them easy to open and close securely. Our experts also have experience building a ramp or dolly nested inside the crate to help customers load and unload bulky cargo. Other unique features include:

  • Hinge, clasp, and lock options for trade show security
  • Custom crate compartments, interior shelves, and drawers
  • Foam cushions, protective interiors, crate padding, and lockdowns
  • Custom handles and casters
  • Heat-treated ISPM-15 lumber for international use
  • Trade Show Crates designed for storage or shipment

Each of our custom trade show crates meets the standards and guidelines set by ASTM.

A Closer Look at Our Work

In 2016, WWE trusted MEI Rigging & Crating to build more than 20 custom exhibit crates for Wrestlemania 32. This project resulted in a successful cross-country transportation of precious Wrestlemania cargo, memorabilia, and exhibits. Best of all, Wrestlemania was able to keep these durable crates, which they reuse for exhibits 2-3 times each year.  If you are interested in reading more, you can view our full Wrestlemania entry in our project portfolio.
