I don't think there is a single strategy that will always work - it all depends on what other people are looking for at the same time as you are looking.

I don't know about ebay, but I have used bricklink to get parts. I looked for an old Unitron set (Star Hawk II), and it produced an itemized list with links to each part, or group of parts.

If there is a Lego Users Group in your area, see if you can place a LUGBULK order through them. Otherwise, your best bet is probably BrickLink.

I'd ask someone like Warren Elsmore to help with this. He's done many unique creations for organisations all over the world, and he's written 3 books about LEGO. Although I would also consider this idea. These guys rocked up to BRICK 2014 in London this past weekend and built the walls of their stand with their product of LEGO storage bricks. It worked ...

You can always go to Ebay and buy some (or should I say, a lot) of the 1x16 bricks. I don't know the dimensions of your exhibition, so I cannot give any further information. Good luck with that project!
