Welcome to the Quadrant2Design March round-up which details everything that’s been going on within the company in March 2024.

A lot has happened this month, with 40 exhibition stand installations, multiple show visits, pre-build workshop customer visits, installation training, anniversaries and loads of exhibition advice guides.

Our Latest Exhibition Advice Guides

At Quadrant2Design we’re committed to sharing our expertise and experience. This month we published three exhibition advice guides, sharing our industry expertise.

The first, posed and answered the common question – When is the best time to invest in a reusable exhibition stand?

We understand that the switch to a modular, reusable stand can appear daunting, but truthfully, it is always better to take the plunge sooner rather than later.

Our second advice guide in March discussed the benefits of exhibiting in the UK for overseas businesses and offered some fantastic tips for choosing your exhibition stand contractor.

Show Visits – Professional Beauty & Data Centre World 2024

The Quadrant2Design are always out and about, visiting the most exciting exhibitions to catch up with our exhibiting customers and keep up to date with the latest industry trends.

Our first show visit in March was Professional Beauty London 2024. We had a number of customers exhibiting at the show, including GiGi Laboratories and Phorest Salon Software, with both companies having fantastic things to say about their Quadrant2Design modular-bespoke exhibition stands.

Later on in the month, we also visited Data Centre World in the Tech Show 2024. At this event, we caught up with several Quadrant2Design customers who had reconfigured the layout of their stands.

Our exhibition stands are all created using a modular framework. “Modular” means made up of multiple smaller independent elements that are fixed together to create the final stand. Being made up of multiple components means that these components can be rearranged in various combinations to create what is essentially a new stand.

Stand sizes and shapes can be changed, graphic panels switched to showcase new marketing messages and bespoke features can be added or removed to meet the changing needs of each show.

At this year’s Data Centre World, the adaptability of our modular exhibition stands spoke for itself, as multiple Quadrant2Design customers adapted and reconfigured their displays.

See our Tech Show video and find out more about our reconfigurable exhibition stands here.

Lastly, we also visited The Aesthetics Conference & Exhibition (ACE) 2024 – the UK’s leading event for non-surgical aesthetic professionals and the only UK show to bring together all the top pharmaceutical, services, solutions, devices and skincare companies.

Quadrant2Design pre-builds every single one of the exhibition stands we create and our customers are always invited to attend these pre-builds.
