Cross Pens approached us and asked for us to create a modular exhibition stand that could be used over a number of events, it had to reflect their new branding and high end offering, but equally be a cost effective option, and it had to be easy to reconfigure to different stand shapes and sizes.
As you’ll see we recently built two stands for them, one at the PPE show in Coventry, which was built on a 10m x 4m space, the other shown to the left, a 6m x 5m stand at CTCO in Lyon. Both stands were designed, supplied, installed and fully managed by Pinnacle, including the build in Lyon.
Both stand spaces featured high level striking branding, by way of our tension fabric system, there was a reasonably sized store on both stands – given the time of year something that was essential purely for coats etc. The stand was built on a 40mm platform floor to ensure the display units could receive power for lighting. There were colour coordinated desks for the cross and Sheaffer sides respectively, and a large reception desk.
The show in Coventry came first, the build up being the 18th and 19th of January, with the show open on the 20th and 21st, the build up went along without any issues and the stand was completed in plenty of time for the client to dress the stand with all of their product. The show went well and the client had some good feedback about the look and feel of their stand.
The PPE show breakdown was on the evening of the 21st January, leaving us just the Friday to get the stand back and prepare it to leave for Lyon on Saturday 23rd. A tight turnaround by anyone’s standards. However it left at the crack of dawn and had arrived in Lyon by the evening of the 23rd. Build up started on the Sunday morning and again, we started with a platform floor and carpet, being sure the electrics came up in the right positions for the showcases. Then it was simply a case of building our modular tension fabric system and fitting it with the tension fabrics and lighting.
Again the stand was completed in plenty of time for the client’s arrival on the afternoon of Monday 25th, and the stand builders flew home later that evening, the show ran smoothly and the guys returned on the afternoon of the 28th to remove the stand and drive it home the next day.
Overall the client was extremely happy with the level of service and design and quality of the exhibition stand itself, which portrayed the company values particularly well.
