Exhibition Stand Designers, Quadrant2Design Launch New War on Cost Blog

Poole, Dorset (PRWEB UK) 14 October 2013

Poole based exhibition and design contractors Quadrant2Design have launched a new series of blog articles aimed at exposing the hidden costs passed onto exhibitors by event organisers, contractors and venues.

Written by Design Consultant Chloe Anderton, the new blog series will educate exhibitors on the 'Stealth-Costs' Show Organisers and exhibition Venues, directly and indirectly impose on exhibition stand projects, and show how to avoid or minimise them.

In recent years UK shows have been burdened with increasing costs, mostly as a result of unnecessary regulations and extra costs imposed by venues, trade bodies, show organisers and their 'on-site' contractors.

These costs act as a 'stealth tax' on exhibiting in the UK, as all the costs are passed onto the end customer, exhibitors. As a result the UK exhibition industry is increasingly under effective competition from foreign exhibition destinations who typically impose fewer unnecessary regulations and costs.

Take electrics for instance, where every individual plug socket is charged at up to £120. Recently, a minor change in a BSA guideline resulted in increased electrical inspection costs. Unfortunately this has little effect on the safety of the exhibition stands but only increases costs for exhibitors.

Chloe Anderton said: “It seems that UK exhibitors are at breaking point with the absurd cost of stand electricals. I believe we're at the point now where exhibitors are actually voting with their feet, and choosing to take their exhibiting overseas”.

Likewise, organisers have in recent years begun imposing extremely short build-up and break-down deadlines on exhibition contractors. Whereas in other European countries contractors can work 24 hours, UK halls sometimes require large exhibitions to be completely assembled in a single day between 8am and 6pm.

For large shows with numerous exhibition stands this means contractors inevitably have to use significantly more workforce labour to get the job done on time. Again this only has the effect of inflating costs for the exhibitor.

So while Show Organisers benefit from lower venue cost, the exhibitor simply pays extra.

Managing Director of Quadrant2Design, Alan Jenkins, said: “We can’t understand why these stealth costs are being imposed on UK exhibitors. We would understand if there was a genuine safety, or other sensible reason, but all too often there isn’t. It’s not fair on our customers, and we are going to do our best to help our customers avoid or offset these costs being imposed on them”

“Unfortunately we can’t change the rules, but we can point out the flaws and hope Organiser and Venues see sense.”

To help with costs, Quadrant2Design will often work with customers to design an electrics plan to reduce usage. Other popular solutions are for customers to ‘self build’ their Prestige Events System stand. The modular stand is easy to assemble, so removes installation costs. Lastly customers can take advantage of Quadrant2Design’s popular ‘free hire’ scheme, whereby they only pay for the graphics they use, not the hire of the exhibition kit. This has been found to save around 20% to 30% on costs.

Chloe comments: "This new Blog campaign will focus on beating these costs, or if you can't beat them, minimise them as much as possible"

Exhibition Design Stand Company Join Forces with So Pure Coffee

(PRWEB UK) 2 October 2013

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.”

“We will be incorporating and expanding on our original designs. So Pure are a luxury brand with a high end finish on all of their machines so the stand design and refit reflects the exclusivity of the brand”

The Avex Vending Show is the largest UK exhibition for vending and water. The event takes place every two years with over 150 exhibitors and visitors from the world's major manufacturers, operators and service companies.

“Many of the other stands at the Avex show have loud graphics and are somewhat gaudy. We built a stand that resembles a sports car showroom; it exudes class and style in a minimalistic way that really catches people's eye,” says Allan Ward.

The exhibition stand company highlight the importance of designing bespoke quality stands that can be re-used in showrooms in order to cut costs for clients.

Suky Matharu, Managing Director at So Pure, says: “We submitted a design brief to three suppliers in order to prepare for the industry trade show, one of the biggest in our calendar. Arcade Design were the company out of the three that got back to us quickly and provided an illustrated brief at our initial meeting.”

“Due to this prompt response and the time invested prior to meeting this company was selected as not only a supplier but a partner for all our future requirements. The expertise, knowledge, advice and professionalism throughout our first project far exceeded our expectations and we’re very pleased to have them as a long term partner. “

About Arcade Design

Arcade Design are an exhibition design stand company in Sutton Coldfield. They design and build exhibition stands for both large and small companies with stands designed for Claire's Accessories, LG and So Pure.


New, Hard-hitting Questions Exhibitors Should Ask Any Prospective Exhibition Stand Supplier

Poole, Dorset (PRWEB UK) 30 September 2013

Quadrant2Design, the Poole based exhibition design agency, has launched a new, innovative way to expose their competitors shortcomings.

It has launched a 'questions for our competitors' section on its website, posing the very questions many exhibition contractors don't want their customers to ask.

Quadrant2Design believe it's understandable that new customers like to shop around when choosing an exhibition company for a new project, or when they're looking for new ideas.

To help with this process, Quadrant2Design's new 'questions for our competitors' list suggests the 'blind side' questions that, although important, clients might not think to ask.

Alan Jenkins, Managing Director of Quadrant2Design said: "We are very confident in our Prestige Events System, our offer and service. If potential buyers ask our competitors the same probing questions we have asked of ourselves, we will win the business. This might upset a few sales people out there, but I'm not worried!"

Alan continues, "Competitors with 'cheap' exhibition stand solutions and inferior service levels, should be worried about well informed customers, who ask 'difficult' questions".

Quadrant2Design would like to challenge any competitor to match the Prestige Events System's capabilities and their service model. Does their system have seamless-effect graphics, curved graphic walling, integrated showcases and digital screens? Can their solutions be easily self-installed by a client, without tools or special knowledge?

Do other exhibition stand solutions have the Prestige Events System's flexible and modular characteristics, the ability to reconfigure for any exhibiting space?

And can they offer Quadrant2Design's Free-Hire Service, or their promise to pre-build every exhibition stand before it leaves the premises - the ultimate 'quality control check'?

"Our 'Questions for our Competitors' also highlights a disturbing omission on many exhibition contractors websites, the total lack of any photographs of 'real' exhibition stands that they have produced for clients, as well as any genuine sounding reviews," comments Alan Jenkins.

To see the list of questions go to: Questions for our Competitors.

JETNET To Exhibit at 2013 Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition – Aviation Intelligence Firm Celebrating 25th Anniversary

Utica, NY (PRWEB) March 22, 2013

JETNET LLC, the world leader in aviation market intelligence, will exhibit at ABACE 2013 in Shanghai, China and is celebrating 25 years of delivering professional aircraft research services. JETNET will present their full range of software products and services at the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport at Shanghai Hawker Pacific Business Aviation Service Centre. This year's ABACE runs April 16th-18th. JETNET will be in booth H214.

JETNET is the leading provider of professional, business, and commercial aviation research services, and has been providing state-of-the-art services since 1988. We're proud to be celebrating 25 years of serving the aviation industry, said Vincent Esposito, JETNET President. Every year we're shining a brighter light on the aircraft market, giving industry professionals better ways to grow their businesses. That's kept us growing for a quarter of a century.

Among JETNET's clientele are leading manufacturers, suppliers, and government and advocacy groups for business and commercial aviation worldwide. The company employs a full-time staff of more than 40 research specialists who contact industry professionals around the world each business day. They make real-time updates to the most comprehensive database of its kind. At the close of 2012, JETNET's database held information on more than 18,000 business turboprops, 19,000 business jets, 28,000 helicopters, and 35,000 commercial aircraft, a stunning total of more than 100,000 aircraft.

At JETNET it's all about reliable information and market intelligence, said Paul Cardarelli, JETNET Director of Sales and Marketing. Our staff solicits original information from sources directly associated with aircraft. The data they gather is reviewed and confirmed for accuracy and completeness. It's then added to the JETNET database for instantaneous access by our clientele, a network of aviation professionals around the globe.

JETNET gathers comprehensive details on aircraft owners and operators, lessors and lessees, fractional owners, airframe, engine and cabin specifications, transaction histories on aircraft dating back 25 years, and comprehensive market details on aircraft for sale.

The company's flagship product, Evolution Marketplace, combines the vast JETNET aircraft database with its comprehensive global listing of Aircraft For Sale.

Information is gathered directly from owners, operators, chief pilots, sellers and purchasers, including sale prices by aircraft category. Users can generate charts and graphs with statistical averages on make, model, year, days on market and more.

Aviation Business Index (ABI) is a worldwide portal for aviation information featuring hundreds of aircraft for sale listings from reputable brokers and dealers throughout the world. Visitors to ABI can also navigate through JETNET derived reports and listings for aviation products and services, market reports and lists, aircraft owners and operators, aircraft dealers and brokers, FBOs, aircraft financiers and insurance providers, and industry news and events.

JETNET iQ (Intelligence Quarterly) is the firm's members-only business aviation market forecasting and premium advisory service. Produced in partnership with the Rolland Vincent & Associates aviation consultancy of Dallas, TX, JETNET iQ performs insightful surveys of 500 business aircraft owners and operators every quarter. There are three components to JETNET iQ:

JETNET iQ REPORTS, definitive references with state-of-the-industry analyses, customer insights and detailed 10-year delivery and fleet forecasts.

Multimedia Exhibition Deftly Bridges the Divide Between Hand and Mind at Otis College of Art and Design

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 02, 2012

Fusing visual statements with devotion to detailed craft, Meticulosity, a multimedia exhibition at Otis College of Art and Designs Ben Maltz Gallery, features the work of eleven Southern California-based artists and three poets who work in a variety of different formats: sculpture, painting, digital media, photography, video, textiles, and installation.

Artists: Tanya Batura, Hilary Brace, Eileen Cowin, Linda Hudson, Gegam Kacherian, Otis Alumnus Sandeep Mukherjee (Fine Arts '96), Ross Rudel, Linda Stark, Arthur Taussig, Elizabeth Turk, Samira Yamin. Poets: Graduate Writing Faculty members Guy Bennett, Dennis Phillips, and Martha Ronk.

The title Meticulosity references both the technical/formal approach of the artists and the spiritual focus of their creative efforts -- their tenacity and continuity. The premise for Meticulosity is that these artworks are created in a meditative mode, or through a trance-like process, and that the painstaking exactitude expressed by these works is intended for the viewer to perceive along with the work's conceptual values. We connect that visual meticulousness to a sense of the ineffable, or that which is beyond words, and to the meaning of beauty.

Our interest is in bridging the way in which the conceptual and the visual seem to have diverged. As curators, our self-appointed task was to avoid preclusions on either side of this divide. We are presenting exceptionally thoughtful artwork where the visual acuity is as important as the originating idea, and have selected a variety of genres to underscore the plurality of our point of view.

Co-curators Meg Linton and John David O'Brien

Leah Ollman, Los Angeles Times art critic, calls Meticulosity a meeting of the mind and spirit. In her review, Ollman writes, The increasing academization of the art world and the shift, among many artists, to a practice that involves actions outside the studio rather than objects made within it, have reinforced that notion of divergence: beauty headed in one direction, brains another. Either/Or. "Meticulosity" makes a case for And.

This project is sponsored in part by the Otis Board of Governors, and supported in part by the Pasadena Art Alliance.


April 28 July 7, 2012 at Ben Maltz Gallery

Curators: Meg Linton and John David O'Brien

Poets selected by Graduate Writing Chair Paul Vangelisti

8 Out of 10 Businesses Not Using Professional Exhibition Stand Designs

(PRWEB) June 8, 2010

Marler Haley has found a massive 8 out of 10 small to medium sized businesses fail to use a professional graphic on their exhibition banner stands when first approaching banner display companies research shows. This is due to a false impression of high costs for professional advice, design and final print which, at Marler Haley, simply isn’t the case.

To cut costs in the times of recession, companies are trying to create their own exhibition stand graphics which normally are not up to scratch and as such find their own designs do not attract the crowds they set out to target.

Whether looking to put on a small, in-house event or a grand-scale bash to attract new customers, clients want to wow the crowd the second they set foot in the door. While that's easier said than done, Marler Haley advises the hard part can be completed for customers by using expert banner stand design graphic designers to create customised, professional graphics giving banner stands the bold, innovative look that will win over clients before a pitch has even begun.

Marler Haley goes on to say that with so many details large and small to consider when staging an event, you don’t want to be second-guessing the graphics chosen to represent company brand, the message a company is trying to portray while it also worth while keeping graphics up to date.

By using a graphic design team that specialises in banner stand designs such as Marler Haley’s own on-house team, costs can be significantly reduced with prices starting from as low as £57.00. Findings show these services will not only keep companies within budget as opposed to approaching a full time graphics designer, the graphics created for the display stands will capture the tone of an event helping a company move towards the goals it is striving to achieve due to the expert knowledge offered.

Marler Haley has long offered graphic design services through their talented team of professional banner stand graphic artists. With banner stand graphic design options such as ‘Artworking’ (Designed from your own brief) and ‘Graphic design’ (Working with you to create a design from scratch) from as low as £57.00, exhibition stand design certainly is budget friendly.

For questions, quotes and other general queries, contact Marley Haley by calling 0808 100 3540.

ad:tech Postpones Chicago Conference and Exhibition

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2009

ad:tech expositions, LLC (, the leading conferences and exhibitions organizer for the global marketing community, announced plans today to postpone its 2010 ad:tech Chicago event. Citing a new strategic vision across all of its global events, ad:tech will focus its North American efforts on its two thriving coastal events: ad:tech San Francisco and ad:tech New York.

“The decision was difficult,” said Susan MacDermid, SVP of dmg world media, the parent company of ad:tech expositions. “But we’re seeing a variety of signs that the industry prefers fewer, larger events. We have always delivered the best in-person venues for doing business, and exhibitors and attendees are favoring the larger coastal ad:techs for sourcing new business solutions. We will announce whether we will return to Chicago in 2011 at the close of 2010.”

ad:tech will incorporate topics traditionally discussed at ad:tech Chicago into the ad:tech San Francisco and New York events. Additionally, participants will benefit from the expanded conference agendas, increased networking opportunities, access to substantially more technologies and vendor services, and greater audiences at these larger events.

ad:tech Chicago has long since been a favorite for the event producer and the mid-western region. Consistent support from regional powerhouses, such as Leo Burnett and Razorfish, and associations, including CIMA and ANA, helped sustain the ad:tech Chicago event in recent years. ad:tech would like to thank the many loyal clients, attendees, media and association partners, speakers and advisory board members who supported the event.

ad:tech’s next North American event, ad:tech San Francisco, will be held April 19 – 21, 2010 at Moscone Center North. Event details can be found at
