At Nomadic we understand the pressure you are under once you sign up to exhibit at a show.  It takes a seasoned exhibitor to really know each venue to ensure a smooth exhibiting experience.

Here are some tips that may help you when you next exhibit at the Business Design Centre, London.

Business Design Centre

Once you have chosen your stand designer and contractor you will need to decide if you are going to set the display stand up yourself or if you want it to be installed.  Many stand suppliers can offer a cost-effective, portable display that can easily be set up to avoid extra labour costs.  However, if you have a large space or you are short on time you may want to consider asking your supplier to set up and breakdown the stand for you. Take a look at our conference set ideas!

Make it Easy

Using an experienced team, like us at Nomadic will certainly remove the stress out of exhibiting, we are familiar with The Business Design Centre events and can help you save time, worry and make you stand out from the crowd.

Plan and Design
