Exhibition Stand FAQ
Everyone has different requirements from their exhibition stands, with some requiring bespoke solutions. This means there isn’t a single one-size-fits-all price, with factors such as the size, the materials used in building the stand and additional custom features all impacting the total cost. However, it’s important to be aware that exhibition stands are available to suit all budgets. To help make things simple, here at Expo we have a range of exhibition stand packages available designed to suit different budget levels. Our stand packages have been carefully configured by our experienced team to suit most requirements, and use a simple pricing model so you know exactly what you’re getting and how much your exhibition stand will cost. The best thing to do is to get in touch with us, so we can discuss your budget and what we can do for you.
Yes. Many of our exhibition stands are designed to require no tools and no particular experience to set up. build. We try to make our designs as modular as we can.

Yes – we will help you with all aspects relating to your exhibition stand. Your stand design is essential to making your stand as popular as possible at the shows you attend. Over our years in designing exhibition stands, we’ve paid close attention to what works and what doesn’t when it comes to encouraging a high footfall.

There’s a lot involved when it comes to designing an exhibition stand and if you’re not careful, it can be easy to lose track of your initial aims. Here at Expo we aim to make the whole process of designing and building your exhibition stand as straight-forward as possible. We do this by following four steps that enable us to deliver a fantastic stand, on time, that meets your individual needs and budget. The first stage of designing a successful exhibition stand is for the stand designers to learn about your organisation, your products and services and what you want to achieve by exhibiting. Our experienced team knows just what to ask to understand exactly which direction to take. In stage two our team will look at the budget and all the practical requirements of your stand, from storage to lighting and power connections. These are the foundations around which your stand will be built. Once we have a complete understanding of your needs and the practical elements have been confirmed, we start work on the third stage in the process; the design of the stand. Our experienced creative team knows what works and what doesn’t, and design fantastic-looking stands that enable our clients to achieve their goals. When you’re completely happy with the design of your stand, the fourth and final stage sees everything come to life as the stand is built. With all our custom stands, your dedicated Expo project manager and experienced build installation team will take care of everything and have your stand ready to go at the venue by a guaranteed time.
Of course, you can be as involved in the design process as much or as little as you wish. Some of our clients have their own in-house design team and know exactly what they want from their stand, whereas other clients come to us with no idea what they want their stand to look like. Whether you want to supply a complete design ready to be made, work with our design team to build on your initial ideas, or let our exhibition stand designers come up with something based on what they know about your organisation and objectives, it’s completely up to you.
Exhibition stands come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. We work with 6m2 to 200m2 space. The floor area that your stand will take up is dependent on the size provided by the exhibition venue. Some events offer a range of size options to exhibitors, whereas at other events all stands are required to be the same size. Other factors when it comes to the size of your exhibition stand are budget, and what you want from your stand. As a general rule of thumb, larger stands cost more to design and build. Speak to our experienced team about what you want to want to achieve from exhibiting and we’ll be able to recommend the most efficient way to do so.
We always love to make our customers’ lives as easy as possible, so if your exhibition stand is going to be used regularly, we can make it totally reusable to suit your needs. Generally speaking, re-using your exhibition stand will limit how large or complex it can be, depending on your transportation options. But if you want an exhibition stand that you can dismantle and put in the back of your van or boot of your car and head on to your next show, we can definitely help.
Our portable stand range can be delivered to you so that you can take them along to an exhibition as required. They come with strong and sturdy cases to protect them when being moved around, so you can be sure that nothing will happen to damage your stand while your in transit. Many of our smaller stands can fit in the back of an estate car or small van. For larger or bespoke stands, our build team will bring everything along to the venue before getting to work setting everything up for you. Once the event is over, we’ll then take everything down and clean the stand away. Whether you’re exhibiting in the UK or further afield, we can make sure your stand is where it needs to be.

When it comes to exhibitions and events, there isn’t one type of stand that is best for everyone. All organisations are individual; the best exhibition stands are those that help people achieve their goals and meet their objectives as well as possible with the budget available. It’s important to have a clear idea of your objective before a show or event and work with a design team who can deliver a solution to achieve this. At Expo, our experienced team knows what works when it comes to designing exhibition stands that get results. For this reason, the first stage in any project we undertake is getting to know our client’s businesses and understanding their goals.
There are a number of ways to make your stand work harder to attract visitors. From eye-catching graphics to attention-grabbing hanging structures and props, the sky’s the limit. That’s not to say that you should go overboard; a stand that is too cluttered or overcrowded means that nothing on it really stands out as the visual noise makes it difficult for attendees at the event to pick up each component. Sometimes less is more, particularly if you want your stand to do a great job at communicating a strong and concise message or getting your brand noticed. Working with Expo means you’re in safe hands when it comes to stand design. Our experienced team know what works and exactly how to strike the right balance between grabbing attention and getting the right message across. So not only will we create a stand designed to meet your specific objectives, but we can also offer help and advice about how to really get the most from it.
It’s important to have a goal or set of objectives behind any event you are exhibiting at. Your goals are fundamental to the design of your exhibition stand, as any good stand will be created to help you achieve what you want to get out of a show. Exhibition stands can be used for a range of objectives, from building brand awareness to acquiring sales leads or contacts to launching or demonstrating new products. With clear goals, you can then measure the success of the event and your stand. For example, you may want to measure how many sales or leads were acquired as a result of exhibiting and work out the ROI that your stand enabled you to achieve.
