Frequently Asked Questions
What are modular exhibition stands?
A modular exhibition stand is a display built of pre-formed sections made from strong aluminium, onto which foamex panels are attached. They provide a bespoke look with the flexibility of a portable stand, so you can customise your stand over and over again. This makes modular systems ideal for those who will be attending several events throughout the year.
Why choose modular exhibition stands?
Some of the key benefits of our modular stands are:
- Affordable and cost effective exhibiting solution
- Individually designed to accommodate our clients’ needs
- Infinite choice of colour schemes
- Graphic panels can be stored and reused for additional installations
- Quick and easily assembled displays for short build up periods
- Reusable and sustainable for the environment
- Incorporation of interactive elements like LED monitors & iPad mounts
What is a traditional exhibition stand?
A traditional exhibition stand is a custom made promotional display built using traditional methods and materials. It is most suitable for larger companies with a bigger budget that want to have complete freedom over the design of their stand and the representation of their brand. Thus, if budget isn’t an issue and you’d like to stand out from other more affordable displays such as shell scheme stands, a traditional exhibition stand is perfect for you.
Can I reuse a traditional exhibition stand?
Purpose built stands can be produced for a single event or be designed to be re-usable. With a little thought at the initial production stage, bespoke stands can be used up to five times. Storage between shows can even be accommodated in our 20,000 square foot facility.
What is a shell scheme stand?
Shell scheme systems are a box-style stand design, ideal to fit in limited spaces and a low budget alternative to traditional stands. These displays have become one of the most popular stand designs for exhibitors in the UK as they provide businesses with a blank canvas. Shell scheme stands include plain panel walls, aluminium poles and flooring that can be enhanced with a range of optional features. Learn more about shell scheme systems.
Do you also dismantle the stand or just build it?
