As the unprecedented financial restrictions continue around the globe,
luxurious big-space exhibition stands are not always viable for exhibitors.
Despite diminishing budgets, companies still have to maintain industry presence
and high profile brand awareness, so it is not surprising that our smaller high
efficiency, system exhibition solutions are becoming more and more popular.
Our clients are appreciating the financial advantages of advanced system
design and build, not only because it is faster and cheaper than any other
known alternative; but because it is also reusable, recyclable and reduces
transport and storage costs.
These modular systems are easy to assemble, disassemble and move with set costs
lower than that of traditional custom stands, making modular stands a more
economical choice. If portability is important to you, emphasize this and
request that we design a display that is at the same time striking and easy to
More traditional and truly custom exhibition stands are very sturdy, but
generally built to be used for a once-off/specific event. They can be the more
impressive and expensive option.
Large custom-built exhibition stands are
consistently impressive, but not usually very portable. They can be designed to
meet the exact requirements of an organisation and make use of every inch of
the allocated area. These stands are ideal for a new product or service launch
as they can be built specifically around a chosen theme.
However, these stands
will be less flexible and are not entirely reusable for future exhibitions. Custom-built
exhibition stands are at the pinnacle of the exhibition field and your stand
will be a unique reflection of your brand.
I reuse a Custom Stand?
Preferably not, as
the cost to reinstall a custom stand will come in close on the original price
and won’t look as good as a new stand.
That is why our stands are quoted as
"Rental”. All the by-products of the stands get donated to schools and those
less fortunate post the exhibition installations.
do I need to provide you with a budget?
We need to design
according to a budget, as the budget informs the design, material finish and
type of construction.
Without a budget, even an estimation thereof, the
proposed solution could miss the mark, and exceed budget entirely.
for an Exhibition Design and quote?
2-5 working days,
dependent on the size of the stand. Large tenders, pavilions and stands in
excess of 200SQM can take up to 2-3 weeks.
for the construction of a stand?
In an ideal world,
one month before the show, this will allow you enough time to plan for all
other aspects of your show (brochures, staffing, pre-marketing campaigns etc).
In what format should I
supply my artwork and do you offer a graphic design service?
We do not specialise in graphic design, but
can highly recommend graphic designers we work closely with. It is generally
easier for you to liase directly with the graphic designer, as it eliminates

of our preferred qualified electricians; they have to submit a certificate to
the organisers signing off their work.
