Exhibiting Overseas – ATA Carnet Launch

15 May | 8:00 am - 10:30 am

To launch our new ATA Carnet service, we are focusing on the do’s and don’ts when planning and visiting exhibitions. The demand for ATA Carnets has trebled since Brexit and taking samples, equipment and exhibition stands to International Trade Fairs is a great example of what is now considered a temporary export.

Known as the Passport for Goods, the ATA Carnet remains the backbone of temporary exports and is accepted in over 80 countries worldwide. A globally unified customs document, it allows goods to pass through customs checkpoints duty-free and tax-free for up to one year.

Learn how to apply for and use ATA Carnets successfully, using the example of a visit to an overseas trade fair. Learn what can and cannot be included on an ATA Carnet. Discover how one ATA Carnet can cover multiple products, trips and destinations. Get it right and one carnet can cover your full year’s exhibition schedule.

Exhibitions are a fantastic opportunity for many industries, providing ample reasons for both brand and customer to attend. From space rental and exhibition stands, to travel and promotional costs – the checklist for any trade show attendance can be epic, so it’s important that when you commit to going – you do it well and make the most of your time!
At today’s event we will investigate ATA Carnets and the various stages of exhibiting:

• What is a Carnet – ATA Carnets can facilitate the temporary movement of Commercial Samples, Exhibition Goods and Professional Equipment, and our team can help you! Our International Trade Team are now an authorised agent for issuing ATA Carnets and can also help with indemnity guarantees if you do not have one in-house.

• What makes a good exhibition stand? – Increasing Exhibition Stand Visibility. You can easily achieve this by using high-level branding, eye-catching graphics with a clear brand message, and by thinking about the direction of visitor foot flow – which is another reason why knowing exactly where you are situated is so important.

• Getting your goods on site – An exhibition logistics service ensures the delivery, movement and storage of your freight is done professionally. The right service ensures everything from venue permits to hiring forklifts and storage areas is taken care of, so you can focus on exhibiting and enjoying the event.

• What I learned as a first-time exhibitor

• The experiences of a regular exhibitor and ATA carnet user.
