Everyone wants an engaging trade show booth. But, to achieve this, it’s essential to think beyond design and construction.  With over 30 years’ experience in exhibition stand design, we use all our experience and exhibition know-how to ensure our clients enjoy some unique value-add. So, how do we deliver exhibition stand designs that give you an additional edge?

An awareness of the latest design trends

Your stand should grab attention and stop people in their tracks. That’s why, making your stand eye-catching and inviting is as important today as it has ever been. At Apex, we maximise your exhibition space by using colour, signage, and lights to draw attendees to you. Furthermore, we also consider large graphic displays, ceiling hung graphics, and on-stand technology to help provide that elusive ‘wow’ factor.

Because we are passionate about what we do, we also keep an eye on the latest exhibition design trends to ensure your space looks contemporary rather than dated. So, it’s no wonder that many of our designs have been awarded ‘best stand’.

But we also know what will work and what won’t, so, we’ll never build you something just because it’s fashionable to do so. Instead, we always deliver a design that works for you.

To choose a starting point for your next stand, take a look through our Exhibition Stands Photo Gallery.

Conversation starting exhibition stands

All too often, companies think that merely showing up with a good-looking stand and waiting for people to come to them is all it takes. And that’s why some exhibitors fail. To stand out from the crowd, your exhibition stand has to reach out and appeal to attendees in new and absorbing ways.

To attract footfall to your booth, we deliver maximum visual impact. But there’s no point in getting people to your exhibition stand if there’s no incentive for them to talk to you once there. So, in addition to making sure your display stands out, at Apex, we also use a combination of traditional expertise and inventive technical know-how to ensure that it is a catalyst for conversations.

Exhibition stand promotion

It doesn’t matter how good you look if nobody knows you are there. So, when you work with us, we help you make a big impact and put the competition in the shade.

For example, most exhibitors will deploy some tricks to attract visitors to their stand – from food and drink to seating areas. But, while giving away coffee (or something a bit stronger!) can help to get a queue forming, this won’t help your business if the free drink is all they remember about you after the event is over. So, when considering promotional tactics, we work with you to make sure that everything supports your objectives.

Exhibition stand build

Over the 30 years we have been supplying exhibition stands, we’ve noticed that the time given to exhibitors to set up and dismantle their displays has become increasingly squeezed. Where once we had a week to set up for a tradeshow, we might now only have two days.

By designing our stands intelligently, we make sure this is not a problem for our clients. In fact, at Apex, we use easy to assemble modular materials to save time on site. This includes traditional timber stands that are created in our warehouse with sections that bolt together in the hall, or system products (e.g. aluminium stands) that can be put together with ease without the help of a carpenter. And, by creating graphics and technology that can be “slotted into place”, we reduce the time necessary for on-stand decoration.

Of course, this approach to exhibition stand build is more time-efficient, but it’s also cost-effective. We can get your stand up and ready in a matter of hours rather than days – often with fewer bodies on site.

Project management

All too often, the time needed to manage the design, build and setup of an exhibition stand detracts from your ultimate show objectives. And that could be a costly mistake.

Let’s face it, business leaders shouldn’t have to think about what kind of bulbs the office lights need, or where the cleaners will store their equipment. Instead, they should be thinking about how they can appeal to customers and boost growth. And the same is true with exhibition stands.

For that reason, if you want to secure a hassle-free return on your investment, you should consider exhibition stand project management.

Affordable exhibition stands

In the past, a stand-out exhibition stand required a big brand budget. This meant that too many start-ups and SMEs were left with an uninspiring pop-up because that was all they could afford.

But times have changed. And, if you are serious about saving money and making an impact, we have developed innovative and affordable ways of using different media and reusable components. And, with lightweight alloys, tensioned fabrics and hi-tech plastics all used to produce contemporary and high-quality displays, you can adapt your display for many different shows and hall spaces.

By delivering maximum bang for buck over time, reusable exhibition stands provide a high return on investment. And, if you want to maximise budget while keeping things fresh, our modular marvels can be updated quickly and easily with interchangeable graphics and different components. So, as well as standing the test of time, our modern systems provide the potential for unlimited creativity.
