The Different Types of Exhibition Stands

When it comes to choosing an exhibition stand, there are a few different options to choose from. You can go for a portable stand, which is lightweight and easy to transport; a modular stand, which can be customised to your requirements; or a custom-built stand, which is designed specifically for your needs. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at each of these types of stands and help you decide which one is right for you.

Portable Exhibition Stand

Portable exhibition stands are ideal if you are exhibiting at a number of different events or trade shows and need to be able to transport your stand easily. They are also a good choice if you have limited space, as they can be packed away into a small car or van.

They are one of the most affordable types of stands on the market and typically consist of a framework of poles which can be linked together or opened up to create a stand. The graphics can then be placed onto the frames and can be interchanged from time to time. This makes them easy to install and pack down easily by 1 person.

Modular Exhibition Stand

Modular stands are a more flexible option as they can be customised to any size or shape that you require. Dependent on the type of modular system, some of the systems can be built without any tools but some are constructed from aluminium frames that can be slotted together to create unique designs which will give plenty of versatility. They can be assembled by a few people and these stands can be suitable for space only or can be modified to fit into a shell scheme stand.

The great thing about modular stands is that they are completely reconfigurable so they can be changed to reflect different stand sizes and artwork changes.

Custom Modular Stands

With custom modular stands, you will get a much more bespoke look but with the benefits of a modular stand system. The stand will have more bespoke elements which will create a more impactful and wow stand experience.

What differentiates itself from a standard modular stand is that a custom modular stand can be built to your specs, to your requirements and you can add bespoke elements to your stand from captivating AV to hanging displays, LED lighting – all of which will attract more attention!

Custom modular stands are a good sustainable option as the framework is reusable and reconfigurable.

Bespoke Exhibition Stand

A bespoke exhibition stand is a tailor-made solution that is designed and built specifically for your company. Bespoke stands are usually made from aluminium or steel frames which are then clad with materials such as MDF, plywood or plastics. The advantage of having a bespoke stand is that you can have any design that you want, so the sky’s the limit! However, they are not as sustainable as a custom modular or modular exhibition stand.

Bespoke stands are usually a lot more expensive than other types of stands and are the best option if you want to create a one-of-a-kind look for your brand or product and have complete control over the design, layout and finish of your stand!
