French Connection HCB Manchester 2024 Exhibition Stand Quadrant2Design

French Connections HCB have started 2024 strong with their first of three A Place in the Sun Live exhibitions this year.

A Place in the Sun Live is the UK’s largest overseas property exhibition series designed to help you find your dream overseas property, as well as the official live events of the hit Channel 4 TV show. French Connections HCB will be attending three A Place in the Sun Live exhibitions this year and A Place in the Sun Live Manchester was their first this past week.

French Connections HCB is a fantastic network of financial and administrative relocation experts who provide key services and the most reliable relocation expertise and customer care to those looking to relocate to France.

When they approached Quadrant2Design to create their exhibition stand, The French Connections HCB team did not have much time to waste, as is sometimes the case in the exhibition industry!

There were just four weeks between the project’s handover to our Project Managers and the installation of the stand in Manchester. Fortunately, through our 20+ years of experience, Quadrant2Design has become proficient at working to even the shortest lead times.

This spectacular island stand showcased multiple features including high-level branding, an integrated TV screen, fret-cut backlit features, curtained storage, an abundance of integrated and illuminated literature display showcases, eye-catching overhead fascia boards and multiple branded counters with integrated tablet brackets.

Alongside the French Connections HCB branding, the stand also successfully showcased the fab insurance brand, French Plans unique planning & design service and Burke Bros global relocation services.

French Connection HCB Review

The French Connections HCB team were very pleased with their stand and, by all accounts, had a great time at A Place in The Sun Live, leaving Quadrant2Design this brilliant review

Hi Laura,

We’re all signed off and it looks absolutely fantastic! Thank you so much to you and the entire team involved for making this happen. I know we pushed it with the timings but everyone has done a superb job. Alan was great with the handover too.

Thanks again!

And that wasn’t the only review we received from French Connection HCB. They also sent the fantastic feedback below

Hi Wiebke,

I hope that you are well. My apologies for the delay in getting back to you.

The team have been fantastic, Laura, Claire and Kristine have all been super-supportive and responsive. The stand for the first show was also absolutely brilliant. I’ve thanked everyone for their excellent support on what ended up being a very tight turn-around.

So overall I am really VERY happy with the quality and finish of the stand, as well as the installation team who were great, and the professionalism and service levels of the excellent team who have helped us so far, Laura and Kristine in particular have been fantastic.

I hope that helps a little. Do let me know if you need anything else. Looking forward to the next show already and seeing the stand in a different format!

Kind regards
