Arcade Design, a Midlands Exhibition Design Stand company has been elected to refit a showroom and reception area for high end coffee machine company So Pure.

So Pure produce high quality Swiss brew systems through their affiliate, Etna Coffee Technology. The continued partnership was confirmed after Arcade Design created the So Pure stand for the AVEX Vending Show 2013 which received positive feedback.

Allan Ward, Managing Director at Arcade Design, says: “The AVEX Vending Show was a resounding success. We’re delighted to continue our work with So Pure and design their showroom and reception area.”
