How is a custom exhibition stand built?

Our highly skilled stand builders can create a stand from all material options, with the most popular being timber and aluminium. 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. 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 for 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.

Can an exhibition stand be sustainable?

Yes, GH Display have been designing and building sustainable exhibition stands for 45 years. We work on the principle that we build our hire stand components and bespoke exhibition stand components to a high quality standard, thus ensuring that every element we build can be used and reused for years to come. Learn more about our sustainable exhibition stand offering, from the use of renewable energy at our manufacturing and printing plant to the choice of 100% recycled materials.

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 more often than not constructed from aluminium profiles and as such can be built up and broken down into smaller sections. 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 fully customisable.

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. Under the umbrella of our turn key exhibition stand service we offer three buying options; custom exhibition stands, hired exhibition stands and hybrid exhibition stands.

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 quotation request 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.

Mike Goff, Events Specialist, Corsair

Very helpful and simple to use. The item is of amazing quality and will be using again.

Fiona Stephen, Team Coordinator, Aberdeenshire Council

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!

Marija Snape, Marketing Manager, Ivyline Ltd

Would definitely recommend GH Display – excellent service and very quick response time. We were super happy with the stand, and will use them again. Thank you so much John, Lee and the team!

Kayleigh Williams, B2B Marketing Specialist

Having used GH Display for a recent exhibition stand design due to the highly competitive prices, I was pleased to find how supportive Jenny and the team were through the whole process. From start to finish, I was kept in the loop and not only provided with proofs but potential artwork errors flagged up by the team were ran past me prior to print to ensure the final product was exactly how I wanted it. The 4m Fabric Display wall looked brilliant in person and really stood out at the NEC. We had a slight hiccup with the lighting system but the error was addressed and corrected straight away by the team. Thank you for helping our show run so smoothly!

Natalie Northall, Marketing & Brand Manager, EPM Ltd

This is the first time we have used GH Display and will definitely look to work with them again in the future. The stand looked fantastic on the day and stood out against our competitors. I cannot praise Jenny enough for all her support and advice. She was incredibly accommodating and kept us in the loop throughout the process. I highly recommend GH Display and we will look to work with them again the future.

Joshua White, Marketing Manager, Protec Group

We used GH Display for the first time this November, they are really helpful and friendly who would do anything to make sure the stand is a success. The quality of the stand was superb and will be using them again for our upcoming shows. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Ceri Stilwell, CEO, Bulldogs BCA

Fantastic service from the team – especially Jenny. As we were a charity she was able to work with us on what we needed and what they could offer. Definitely look to order from them again!

Adam Bell, Business Manager, Swarthmore Care Homes

I found GH Display whilst searching for a screen of a certain height and size to fit our new visitors pod for our care home. I called and spoke to John whose speed of response was superb. They custom made the screen to a slightly larger spec than the largest one advertised and John offered simple solutions for extra safety. This was ordered and delivered in 3 days. To say I am happy with the service is an understatement. The quality of visitor experience in our care home will be greatly enhanced now. Thank you GH and in particular John.

Dario Capaldi, Marketing Manager, George Boyd

Had the pleasure of working with GH Display over the past 6 months in preparation for our 1st exhibition since the pandemic. The team provided a very competitive price & their customer service was top notch. Jenny worked with me from the very first stand sketch right up to the stands construction. Their onsite team were absolutely fantastic too & worked hard to ensure everything look great right in time for the show. Can’t recommend them enough – will 100% use them moving forward!

Vivien Kentish, New Business and Communications Officer, Medicus Health Ltd

Delighted with our Vaccine Pods and Protective Screens. GH Display were amazing from start to finish. Fantastic support, super fast delivery and install. Thank for from Medicus Health Partners.

Ellie Hayter, Marketing Manager, Digihaul

Charlotte was a great help and very quick to respond. The pop up banners were great and really added a nice touch to our event. Thank you very much

Liz Weston, Global Marketing Manager, Belbin

There really are not enough superlatives to describe the customer service we received from Jenny and the GH Display team recently. I called to ask for help with working out how we could produce a stand that visitors could write on – Jenny sampled the material with three different types of markers before we put the order in and this was invaluable in helping us purchase with confidence. When the day came, we actually used ‘super sticky’ post it notes and colour coded by job function with attendees. The material held the post it notes perfectly and we were delighted with the engagement the stand brought us and our business. Definitely recommend. Will buy from them again. Thank you!

Peter Harrington, CEO, SimVenture

Discovered GH Display when sifting through Google in search of a new exhibition stand supplier. Then we found the product we wanted on their site – and at a great price. Ordering we crossed fingers. Everything to this point had been excellent. When the stand arrived (on time) things got even better. Easy to assemble, lightweight and stunning (especially with the light behind the screen) we knew the new stand was a great decision. Thank you Mollie for your outstanding service and all at GH Display. Looking forward to recommending you further.

Lola Rutter, Marketing Manager, Conservatory Blinds

Conservatory Blinds Limited are so impressed with the service offered by GH display. We approached the company because we wanted a new bespoke stand for an upcoming exhibition. The stand looked brilliant and received many compliments. GH display also had great customer service and efficiency. We would 100% recommend them in the future.

Vivien Kentish, New Business & Communications Officer, Medicus Health Ltd

Amazing company who supported GP Partnership in Enfield to install COVID Vaccine Pods and screens in record time. Medicus Health Partners just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help.

Andrew Anderson, Director, Volvo Owners Club

Excellent service and superb desk and house for our club display

Tina Stevenson, Marketing Manager, Citizen's Advice

What a lovely team! Will add photos when we have the finished product #Excited :0)

Etienne Vuillard, Marketing Manager, ITOH DENKI

We worked with GH Display for a 35sqm booth at IMHX, NEC Birmingham. From the first design proposal that was spot on with our brand identity and kept under budget, to the execution of the booth that looked just as the 3D renderings, everything was smooth and easy. Thanks Charlotte and the GH team for your great reactivity and professionalism.

Looking forward to working with you again in the future !

Manuela Cossu, Marketing Manager, Gentlemen's Tonic

We have used GH Display for our stand at Professional Beauty and we were extremely happy with our stand! Many people commented on it and it was the most photographed stand of the whole exhibition! GH Display have done a terrific job and we would definitely recommend them!

Clare Trueman, Conference Manager, Med-El

We started working with GH Display earlier this year. They have helped us and our HQ with several events since then. They are very professional and helpful and have added a new look to our exhibition stands. They are very prompt and reliable and I look forward to designing more exhibitions stands with them in the future.

Bobby Polkey, Digital Marketing Manager, Micro-Tech UK

A BIG thank you is deserved for GH Display in all the work they put in to create our Micro Tech UK stand for this year’s BSG Live 23. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with them, with a special shout out to Jenny! The stand builders on the day were fantastic as well! What a great stand and sticking with our values, made as sustainable as possible. Would recommend and will definitely work with them again!

Brian Warner, Marketing Manager, Impact Specialist Finance

I recently had the pleasure of ordering through GH Display on a project that required a 1.8m SEG lightbox display wall with a fabric TV display stand, and I must say that I couldn’t be happier with the services they provided. First and foremost, GH Display went above and beyond to meet our tight deadline. We were in a time crunch, and they not only delivered on time but did so without compromising on quality. Their commitment to ensuring our project was completed on schedule was truly impressive. What sets GH Display apart is their dedication to customer satisfaction. They were responsive, attentive, and willing to accommodate our specific needs. It’s not every day that you encounter a company that genuinely cares about their clients’ success.
Overall, I couldn’t be more pleased with the 5-star service provided by GH Display. Their ability to deliver on a short deadline, their exceptional product quality, and their commitment to customer satisfaction have made them our go-to choice for future stand needs. I highly recommend their services to anyone in need of top-notch display solutions.

Juliana Vasconcelos, Marketing & Events Co-ordinator, Emtelle

A big THANK YOU to the whole GH Display team. You guys have been fantastic from start to finish. We were delighted with the outcome for both stands and very impressed with the quality of the stand and how quickly it was built on build day. Luke, Joe and the rest of the team on site have been brilliant and so helpful, we were well looked after by your team, and they kept us informed all along the way. In general, the booth was very well received. A special thanks to Carrie, who has been great to work with. We look forward to working with you all again in the future.

Simon Turner, Campaign Manager, National Highways

After struggling with poor service from previous suppliers we have been delighted with every part of the GH Display service. Stand designs have been stylish and imaginative, build quality has been excellent, customer service fantastic… even the guys building the stands and doing the handover have been great – professional, helpful, and skilled. Carrie has been amazing – Nothing is too much trouble and everything has been done to a really high standard. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend GH Displays to any other exhibitor.

Ramsay Labassi, Group Marketing Coordinator, Rapidrop Global Ltd

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

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

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.

Tom Evans, Event Manager, Advanced Northumberland

I had the pleasure of working with GH Display on a stand for an event recently and found everything from the initial call, the design process, through to the end product to be of an incredibly high standard. The stand had excellent feedback from staff and customers. Carrie was excellent at communicating, and very patient with us at times. It was also great to meet Jon after he built the stand, and chat to someone enthusiastic and passionate about his work. The extra touches that were included were well thought out and classy. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for an external stand builder.
