Live events are go… nearly…

Boris says so… by June 21st possibly…
well hopefully…

Still some uncertainty there but all of us at plus exhibition are getting just a little bit excited at the prospect of a return to live events. Our customers are also being infected with optimism as some of them have already booked space and are having conversations with our project managers about their exhibition stands… actual physical exhibition stands that people will be able to visit.

What’s happening with live event venues?

None of us are quite sure how live shows will look as they recommence – nobody is expecting to be able to jump back in exactly where we left off. The safety of venue staff, exhibitors and attendees will of course be number one priority whilst ensuring that events will still be exciting, effective and successful. UK venues are raring to get started and are continuing to work hard to put safety measures in place – information on how they are doing this is available on the venues’ individual websites. A lot of shows from the first half of this year will now take place in 2022 but some expos/exhibitions intended for summer are still tentatively on the calendar. Confidence in the industry looks to be stronger in the Autumn with the NEC in Birmingham going ahead with plans to host their popular tv based exhibitions –  A Place in the Sun Live and Grand Designs Live, with the ever popular (maybe more popular post-global pandemic) Motorhome & Caravan Show also still scheduled to go ahead.

Trending – physical / virtual hybrid events

Exhibitors are still looking to how they can maximise visitors to their event as there may still be restrictions on air travel, reducing attendees to international shows and also less desire to travel in this new ‘shall we just zoom’ world. Hybrid events may be the answer – they are certainly looking like being the new trend in the events industry. Imagine – a virtual event running alongside your physical one creating two experiences within one event. In person events will still be the most immersive experience but the benefits of adding virtual capabilities include high impact visuals and the ability to revisit a talk/webinar/demo. Of course this on demand function can also be made available to your live attendees – extending your event way beyond the limited time slot of the live event.

Looking forward to really seeing you

At plus although we have developed an extraordinary virtual platform, we are still big believers in the benefits of in-person interaction. Nothing quite beats that personal connection… knowing you have someone’s undistracted attention. So let’s do this, let’s get back to connecting with each other in person…

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.

Pricing Guide

We can provide you with a rough price over the phone when you fill in our simple quotation form, or you can take advantage of our free 10-minute consultative phone call. We can then provide a free 3D render of your proposed stand and supply an in-depth no obligation quotation video. The exact cost of your stand will depend on the setup, and whether you choose to hire a stand on an ongoing basis or commission a self-build stand for reuse and storage.

Standard Packages

Our standard packages include every element you need to for a complete display, from professional installation and breakdown to the hardware, custom graphics, lighting and flooring. You won’t have to worry about a thing; one of our experienced project managers will be on hand to take care of everything, including the necessary health and safety documentation and admin.

What Our Happy Clients Say

We’ve worked with a range of brands to create unique designs that do all the heavy lifting at your exhibition, so all that’s left for you to do is provide a welcoming smile to the visitors inevitably flocking to your stand. Our clients include small start ups as well as multinationals such as Sainsbury’s, Google, Specsavers and Apple.

Here’s what our clients say about us:

I wanted to email you because I have to say I am very impressed with your company…


Our whole team is very happy with the stand. Thumbs up to the guy who built our stand and you of course…

Auto Guru

I just wanted to say a massive thank-you for your help with the creation of our stand! We were very pleased with the way it turned out and the professionalism and support we got from you all when we were working on the design of it.
