Exhibition Stands

Exhibition Stands can be whatever you want them to be, and with our reusable custom exhibition stands, they can adapt from one event to the other, using interchangeable, adapatable & modular elements, including lighting, product display and stand-off graphics – many of which are available to hire saving you up to 75%!

  • Versatile, dynamic & modular: our exhibition stands are made up of interchangeable elements to give you total control of your exhibition stand’s size, look and funtionality. Change your exhibition display from one event to the next and get just the look, scale and functionality you need for each market and venue.
  • Hire or buy: unlike traditional ‘build-and-burn’ custom build exhibition displays which are single-use, our reusable exhibition stands are eco-friendly and very economical, especially if you hire some elements or incorporate your existing displays!
  • Design & functionality: our specialised exhibition stand design team we can create a stand as unique or corporate-looking as you like, incorporating everything from flatscreens and computer pods to product displays, meeting rooms and even a hospitality bar to draw a crowd of attendees to your exhibition space!
  • Installation or self-setup: Want to set up your exhibition stand yourself?  Or need us to take care of delivery and set up – even for international shows and events?  No problem to us!  We can tailor your display to your own budget and exhibiting plan, and pick up the slack wherever you need us.

12 Pain-Free Ways To Cut Exhibiting Costs...

… without sacrificing your success at the event.

1) Take a smaller space at the exhibition and maximise your impact with extra lighting on your exhibition stand, which has been shown to increase awareness of your space by 30 to 50 percent.  Lighting can be hired from just €50 per event.

2) Another way to maximise your presence even on small exhibition stands is to use some movement. Research shows that visitors are naturally drawn to moving objects such as product demonstrations, gobos and spinning signs.

3) Save shipping costs by choosing the lightest possible stand material – Aluminium weighs just 25% what timber or laminate weighs, and fabric panels, which do not require magnetic fixings, are much lighter than traditional graphics.

4) When designing your exhibition stand graphics, include one complimentary-colour panel which can be replaced in future without worrying about colour-matching. Many exhibitors will have new product, logo or event to promote over the years, and will save money by replacing just one panel rather than reprinting the entire set.

5) If you want to impress your competitors and potential clients with new exhibition stands at each event, hiring will greatly reduce your costs. You can choose a different size and shape stand for each event or venue, and if your designers are clever you might not need to purchase new graphics each time. This will also cuts down storage costs between events.

6) Remember that theft can be a problem at trade shows and protect your valuables accordingly. Investing in some lockable equipment and security cables for larger items with save money in the long run. Keeping expensive products and samples on display inside your exhibition stand will keep them secure and encourage clients to enter your space to view the products.

7) Look after your display equipment. Avoid dropping any hardware as this can loosen screws and springs, and cause chips or cracks which visibly age any exhibition stand. Graphic elements are the most vulnerable part of your display so follow guidelines for maintaining graphic panels to keep them looking fresh and professional. You will get years and years of use from your exhibtion display with proper care.

8) If you use a exhibition stand set up service, plan ahead.  If access is only available after hours, or you organise this service at the last minute, you may have to pay overtime fees increasing your overall cost. The same applies to rush charges for graphic design &production.

9) Buy an exhibition stand with a decent warranty, and one that can be mended in your home country to save time and shipping costs down the line.

10) Buy an exhibition stand that is made of connecting parts or components – you can learn to set these up yourself, saving on set up fees, and each can be replaced separately if needs be, saving you a fortune compared to replacing an entire single-piece display.

11) If you upgrade or increase the size of your exhibition stand, use your existing elements as a base. A skillful exhibition design company will help you reuse, revamp, upgrade or disguise your existing exhibition equipment within in a whole new display, at a fraction of the cost of starting from scratch. (Especially true if you have invested in quality items to begin with).

12) Re-use what you have in terms of graphics also. When designing new exhibition graphics, check your existing files and artwork for high resolution images, logos and backgrounds that can be reused, tweaked and incorporated into your new design. In the hands of an experienced designer, these can be transformed into something new and fresh, and this will save you on stock photography and redrawing fees. If you are unsure about what can be used, send everything you have to your designer for guidance.
