Viapath sometimes exhibit within a shell scheme system in addition to exhibiting as a space only exhibitor. The stand therefore had to work within both of these scenarios, needing to be self supporting for space only events, but versatile enough to fit within the restrictions of a shell scheme, with most allowing a maximum stand height of 2.4 metres. There were to be no products displayed on the stand, but a reception counter, seating area, literature stands and hidden storage space were required. It was also important to factor-in possible additions to the stand at future events, such as the ability to mount audio visual equipment on the walls. We presented three possible designs and after minor alterations, Viapath chose a winner.
