Exhibition display stands

Exhibiting is an extremely powerful way to market your business and brand. The options available are far-reaching and it can be all too easy to invest in the wrong solution. Our team at GH Display can help you find the perfect system that will provide the ideal platform for showcasing your products, services and company image.

Custom exhibition stands

This is the ultimate solution for showing the visitors at your event that your business is a successful and trusted player in your industry. It will usually be constructed from a combination of materials including; MDF, aluminium, glass or acrylic. A custom exhibition stand can be hired or purchased, depending on what works best for your budget and how many exhibitions you will be attending each year.

Hired exhibition stands

A hired exhibition display stand that is custom made for you is often constructed using aluminium pieces that fit together to create a unique frame. We stock a huge range of aluminium extrusions in different shapes and sizes, this means we can create something truly unique for any stand space and position. This could be as a single level display stand or a two-story structure. For companies that want a completely different design for each show then a custom hired stand is a great solution, allowing total flexibility.

Bespoke exhibition stands for sale

For a bespoke design that’s tailored to your brand, you may wish to hire an exhibition stand. In the Bleep stand example above, we created custom MDF plinths for the client.A custom exhibition stand means that in terms of cost, you will pay more but you will see a return on the investment by the third exhibition. A well-designed custom exhibition stand should allow for some reconfiguration. This will give you a fresh layout and look for each show and also ensures it can be reused for different sized stand spaces.

Modular exhibition stands

A modular exhibition stand is a display constructed from metal (usually aluminium) extrusions that slot together to create frames, which then interlock to make structures. These frames and structures are then clad in graphics to create walls, towers and meeting rooms. Though modular systems are made from extrusions that come in standard sizes, the finished stand can be customised to be whatever size, layout or shape is desired. These are extremely versatile systems, which can incorporate meeting rooms within the stand, angled walls and imposing towers.

Portable display stands for exhibitions

A portable exhibition stand is a display that is relatively lightweight, mobile and can usually be installed by one or two people. This is a cost-effective option and ideal for smaller events. Pop up displays are a popular portable display option and are purchased as a standard size, for example, a 3 x 3 or 3 x 4. There are other portable options such as the Twist display system that is made up of individual banners that are linked together.An increasingly popular and cost-effective option is the fabric exhibition stands or portable fabric banners. These are usually either a pop-up display stand where you fix the single fabric graphic (which will have a silicone beading around the edge) to the pop-up frame by feeding the edge into a special channel or there are simple aluminium tubular frames on which you pull over a fabric graphic sock.The beauty of this fabric display is that you get a seamless tension fabric graphic that is extremely durable, so much so that you can often clean them in a washing machine.

Self-build exhibition stands

Most self build exhibition stands are modular systems made from aluminium. The aluminium frame is made from standard-sized extrusions, which slot together using few tools and requiring relatively little experience. Self-build exhibition stands come in a huge range of sizes, shapes, complexities and budgets and are designed to be installed and transported by your team. By virtue of being modular, they are fairly adaptable, allowing you to buy additional modular components to enlarge the original stand.
