Custom exhibition stand builder

As leading exhibition stand builders, we will work tirelessly to create a custom exhibition stand that will surpass all others.


About us

We are a family run business that has steadily grown over the last 45 years to become a leading exhibition builder in the UK.

We provide a one-stop-shop for all your exhibition requirements and provide services in the UK and overseas. We have a professional and experienced in-house team of print technicians, bespoke exhibition stand designers and custom exhibition stand builders.  

How is a custom exhibition stand built?

Our team of stand builders can create a stand from all material options, with the most popular being wood and metal custom exhibition stands. For wooden or timber exhibition stands our carpenters often use mdf, plywood and a range of soft and hard woods to create large custom displays with intricate shapes and curves. We can cut shapes from wood using our CNC machinery, or when appropriate, cut by hand. In addition to building custom exhibition stands from wood and metal we can also fabricate them using acrylic, glass, inflatable PVCs and fabric displays. We are an expert with LEDs and are renowned fro creating illuminated backlit displays within our custom exhibition stand designs. Why not browse through our portfolio of custom exhibition stand ideas to see what we can do.

What is a modular exhibition stand? 

In the exhibition stand industry you will often hear the term modular exhibition stands. Modular exhibition stands generally cover exhibition stand systems that are often constructed from aluminium and as such can be built up and broken down into smaller sections, in a more modular way. There are a large number of aluminium systems available and modular exhibition stands lend themselves well to be extended and reconfigured. At GH Display, rather than buy an off the shelf modular system, we manufacturer our own from aluminium extrusions. This makes our modular exhibition stand system the most competitively priced in the UK and extremely versatile.

What is the best type of exhibition stand?

The best type of exhibition stand build will depend on various factors namely; design ambitions, exhibition objectives, exhibition space and layout, whether you are looking for self-build or an exhibition stand with installation services and budget. Ultimately we can create the exact stand for your requirements. Each business is different and as such each exhibition stand solution is unique to that business.

How we work?

First we take your brief. This can be in a phone call to 01733 570222 where you tell us what information you have and we ask some questions. Following that conversation we come up with a draft exhibition stand design and associated budget. If you would prefer you can complete our online design brief form here. Once a member of our team has read through your design brief we may have some follow up questions before we start working on the draft design. Once the exhibition stand design is finalised we schedule in your stand build and take over the contact with the event organisers and on-site contractors. You simply turn up to the event and take handover of your completed exhibition stand the day before the exhibition opens. For those customers who would like to preview their custom exhibition stand before the big day, we can also offer a pre-build viewing of your stand in our extensive workshops in Peterborough.

Tailor-made custom exhibition stands

We create bespoke displays that are tailored to suit your brand and the requirements of the event space. Our stand builders and designers do not reuse or reproduce the same generic range of displays time and time again. Instead, we make it our mission to understand your brief, overall business services, exhibition objectives and your company's image.

Crafted exhibition stands to hire or buy

We are king of our craft and produce the highest quality of display stands, self-build exhibition stands and exhibition graphics. We can build you a stand that will shine bright for a single event or an illuminating longer lasting exhibition display that will be built to a standard and style that lends itself to reconfiguration and reuse. Simply tell us what your objectives are and we will guide and advise on options.

You can choose to hire or buy your custom-designed exhibition stand. If you desire a new look for each exhibition, a hire stand is often the preferred option. If you want to maximise your return on investment and plan to exhibit more than two times per year, we recommend considering the purchase option. You tell us and we will deliver!

What our customers say about us....

- Ramsy Labassi, Group Marketing Coordinator, Rapidrop Global Ltd

“I would like to thank you and the team at GH Display for the amazing stand you designed and provided us. We had an excellent show and the response has been amazing. Thank you for the time you spent with us on the design and being patient with us with the changes we kept making, even at the last minute. You completely fulfilled the brief which was to create a stand that had the WOW factor, easy to build, reusable and of course within budget. We chose GH Display for your knowledge and enthusiasm for exhibition display and construction, you gave us 100% from the start to finish. I would like to thank you for the ongoing support even whilst we were constructing the stand, the 24 hour hotline was invaluable and apologise for interrupting your weekends and family camping trip! I really don’t think we would have got this level of support from anywhere else. Your team have been fantastic throughout, friendly and very helpful, and we look forward to using GH Display very soon."

- Jo Morris, Marketing Manager, Eurocell Plc

During the build of the stand we were regularly kept up to date with progress and any information or actions we were required to complete were communicated in a timely manner. We were invited to view the stand during the build so we could see exactly how the stand would look ahead of the show and make minor alterations if required.  This is the first time we have ever seen a stand pre show build and it really helped build our confidence.  It was clear at this point we had found a great supplier who delivered what was promised and met all our expectations. A large amount of pre planning was required as the installation of the stand and of our products needed scheduling to ensure both GH Display and our fitters had suitable time, tools and materials to deliver a swift build. Considering the complexity of the stand build it was amazing that the stand was complete and we had left the venue by 5pm the day before show opening! This was by far the most complex stand we have ever attempted to build and GH Display not only delivered this to a very high quality build and finish but also did so well within our agreed budget. Following many bad experiences with stand builders in the last 5 years over 12 exhibitions, our faith has been restored by working with GH Display, they are without a shadow of doubt the best stand builder we have ever worked with.  I can be certain we will have a long partnership and I would not hesitate to recommend GH Display.  Fantastic company, great service and a joy to work with."

- Adam Bromilow, Marketing Manager, Kirkby Tyres Ltd

"The service from GH Display was simple, quick and professional. The production staff were highly experienced, exceptionally creative and super friendly. As a result, our exhibition stand at LAMMA 2016 was perfect for our needs and cast a shadow over that of our competitors. Kirkby Tyres Ltd highly recommend GH display and will certainly be working with them for years to come"

- Fiona Stephen, Lecturer, Grays School of Art Aberdeen

"We recently placed an order with GH Display for an external exhibition system as part of the Develop North festival of photography in Aberdeen. We were delighted with the quality of product and service we received from John, Nick and the rest of the team. The units were made to a very high specification and were very simple to construct on site. The team were able to provide a fast turn around time on the order and delivered them in advance of the requested deadline, giving us valuable extra time to prepare the exhibition installation. John was always on hand for advise, going above and beyond to help us with our enquiries throughout the process. I would highly recommend GH Display and will look forward to working with them again in the future. Many thanks! "

- Iain Cavell, Managing Director, Measurement Solutions

"Great experience with John and his staff. Always offer advice and suggestions, and the end result is always better than we expected. Highly recommended."

Kate Treen, Marketing Manager, Phantom Screens

Grand Designs Live worked very well for us, in large part due to the stand design. The large-scale graphics were very engaging and the light box worked well to encourage people to stop and interact with us. We had a relatively small shell-scheme stand, but the design made the entire space work hard and enabled us to present ourselves on a high quality ‘bespoke space-only’ level. The design’s flexibility means we can adapt the graphic elements and take the stand on to at least two further shows this summer – giving us greater value for money. The team at GH Displays was highly committed and professional and helped us achieve a great outcome in a relatively short space of time. They were great to work with and I’d recommend them highly”.
