The Scale of the Challenge was Big!

The Learning Technologies event is one of the most anticipated in the education technology sector each year. With the event being one of the biggest at ExCeL, London, it’s the hub of innovation, networking, and learning.

We were tasked to deliver 50 stands in just 2 days, it was a formidable challenge, but one that we were determined to meet head-on.

Planning and Preparation

We put together a comprehensive project plan, to help the team manage this challenge efficiently. We set clear milestones and deadlines for each stage and created contingency strategies in case of potential challenges.

Each exhibition stand design was designed and constructed in our workshop at Expo HQ, allowing us to control quality and ensure precision. Opting for the easy design stand meant it could easily be assembled and disassembled, significantly reducing on-site setup time – as time was crucial.

A logistic plan was put together too, to ensure delivery times were met for the 2-day show. Our team worked closely with the event organisers at ExCeL London ensuring access to the site and the necessary permits needed.

The Execution

Each one of our team knew their role and responsibility within this challenge. Clear communication was one of the most important factors to ensure that everyone worked towards the end goal. The nature of the stands made it easy to set up and the team worked in coordinated shifts to maintain a continuous workflow.

Even though the timeline was tight, our quality was never compromised. We had members of the team taking regular inspections throughout the setup process, ensuring that every one of the 50 stands met our high standards. If there were any issues, we promptly addressed them and adjustments were made right there and then to guarantee each stand was perfect.

Overcoming Each Challenge

Time was the most significant challenge. Delivering 50 stands in just 2 days is a huge challenge and this required us to work quickly and efficiently – which Expo can do! Thanks to our pre-fabrication strategy and well-coordinated team efforts, we executed this challenge perfectly and on time!

Of course, event environments can be unpredictable and we did encounter a few on-site challenges, however, our flexible approach and quick problem-solving skills allowed us to adapt and make the necessary adjustments without delaying the overall setup.

With our large team working under pressure, we had regular briefings and clear communication throughout the process to maintain everyone’s focus on the end goal. Having this collaborative spirit was instrumental in our success.
