Exhibition stands



Hello, welcome to our blog. Yes, it's true, the title is perhaps a bit exaggerated... or maybe not... If you have experienced the assembly of stands at a fair, you know that it is a stressful and risky activity. Taking a false step at a fair can mean the loss of your health, your job or a lot of money for the company. In this blog you will find resources that will help you understand its dynamics and its actors. Only in this way can you make the most appropriate decisions when setting up your stand, either on your own or by controlling your supplier.

But here we are not only talking about calamities that happen at fair stands and how to avoid them (the truth is that we talk about this a lot). It is also a space to see the new trends in stand design, materials and construction techniques. I hope you find it very useful, and if so, please help me by sharing it 🙂
