Get ‘stand-out’ design
Attract maximum attention from prospective visitors by getting the very best design for your stand. It's your shop window at the show – so if budget permits, we suggest you hire a designer (we can provide advice on who to talk to if need be). Before you progress, do prepare a detailed brief that clearly states your show objectives.
