Trade Show Fee

Trade Show Fee

A "trade show fee" within freight pertains to a charge applied for the transportation of goods associated with a trade show or exhibition venue. These fees encompass various logistical elements related to participating in the trade show, including handling, storage, drayage (internal transportation of goods within the venue), setup, and dismantling.

The amount of trade show fees can vary based on factors like the size and weight of the shipment, the duration of storage at the venue, and any supplementary services required.

Exhibitors typically encounter these fees as part of their involvement in trade shows, contributing to the overall expenses associated with exhibiting and presenting products or services at such events.
