Hot and Sweaty Exhibitions


Getting Hot and Sweaty at Exhibitions .

No not in that way, although it would make standing on your stand all day long a bit more bearable wouldn’t it!

This is all about how to stay cool and comfortable at your exhibition through the hot and sweaty summer months! Having been at the NEC and Excel over the last week with temperatures reaching 30ºC, it gets very hot inside the exhibition especially with all the lighting and AV equipment on all day!

You will sweat. Accept this as fact, there is no way you are going to be stood up all day inside one of these halls without some bit of perspiration coming from somewhere. So wear deodorant, keep some on your stand, wear lightweight fabrics and please stay away from colours like light blue and grey as these show every single bead of perspiration.

Hydration! Stock your stand up with more than enough bottled water for everyone on there. Staying hydrated will keep your energy levels up and it will also keep your brain functioning properly all day. Being dehydrated is one of the key things to reduce brain activity, meaning your conversation skills will go to pot if all you can think about is how thirsty you are.

Take regular breaks and get outside. Fresh air works wonders, it also allows you to not have to converse with anyone for around 15 minutes, a welcomed scenario if you have been on a stand for a few hours trust me!

If you can, try and stay away from the after exhibition drinks…now I know this is a lot easier said than done. When someone invites you out on an all expenses paid evening it is very hard to say no. So if you do go out, be prepared for feeling horrible the next day and do your best to stay professional throughout!

Another way to stay cool is not setting up your stand yourself! Let us do the hot and sweaty work for you. Click here for details of our free hire exhibition stand service with setting up and break down or here for our exhibition stand design service.

Our Exhibition Stand Services

Our exhibition stand design company specialises in one-off bespoke stands that can be reused time and again. We supply your custom stands with full design and build services, including a free consultation and 3D render that shows what your stand will look like. You can rest assured that it will meet all your requirements.

Invest in a self build solution and plan for cost savings. Commissioning a bespoke, self build exhibition stand will maximise your opportunities to increase sales, while minimising the cost of attending shows. Our stands are designed to be super durable, easy to set up and will pack down as small as possible, for convenient transportation and storage. We include training in setting up your stand if required.

You can benefit from our free hire plan. It is the most cost-effective exhibition stand rental scheme on the market. You only pay for your graphics and the installation and dismantle service, as we loan you the stand hardware completely free of charge. However big or small your stand is, hardware hire from us is still free. There are no strings attached or ongoing commitments, and our rental plan can save you up to 75% on the cost of exhibiting at further shows. As the installation and dismantle is done for you, all you need to do is show up and exhibit.
