Exhibition Stands Designed for The Birmingham NEC

The National Exhibition Centre, or NEC, is more than just the largest exhibition venue in the UK. It is a bustling hub of activity, attracting millions of visitors and thousands of exhibitors every year. And our team at Creation Exhibitions is proud to be a part of it all.

As seasoned experts in the field of exhibition stand design and build, we’ve been working at the NEC since it was first established as the Birmingham International Arena. We know how to navigate its 20 interconnecting halls and 34 conference suites, all set in the vast grounds of 611 acres. Our build team has been there every step of the way, delivering exceptional service and creating unforgettable experiences for our clients.

From intimate music performances to large-scale sporting events, the NEC has it all. And we’re there, building our modular and bespoke exhibition stands at most of them! As a testament to our commitment to quality, we’ve become a trusted partner of many well-known exhibitions and conferences of all sizes held at the venue.

Over the years, the NEC has undergone a series of transformations, with each one marking a new chapter in its history. In 1983, it was rebranded as the NEC Arena, which later became the LG Arena in 2008, after signing a lucrative naming-rights sponsorship deal with the global electronics company LG. This exciting development ushered in a new era for the arena, which has been a popular destination for live events since it first opened its doors in 1980.

The NEC has now become the UK’s number one exhibition venue. Every year, it welcomes around 2.4 million visitors and over 39,000 exhibiting companies to more than 125 exhibitions. The venue’s central location makes it the perfect choice for companies looking to showcase their products and services to a larger audience. It is easily accessible for our build crews, which ensure our price-point remains cost effective, meaning that your new exhibition stand design and build won’t cost the earth. (both to your pocket and the planet, The NEC sends zero waste to landfill!)

    Custom Exhibition Stands

    A bespoke custom exhibition stand is more than just a collection of components put together. Each aspect of the stand is carefully crafted to reflect your brand’s ethos and language. From the colour scheme to the display features, the stand should convey your brand’s message and draw attention to your offerings. By having a stand that truly represents your brand, you’ll make a lasting impression on visitors and stand out from your competitors.

    When it comes to custom exhibition stands, the possibilities are endless. Your stand can be built to the exact size and layout requirements of your stand space, making the most of the area available. Additionally, by taking as many elements from your brief as possible, your stand will be designed to meet your unique requirements.

    One of the key benefits of a custom exhibition stand is the ability to include innovative display features that are unique to your brand. Lightboxes, for example, are an effective way to illuminate your stand and draw attention to your messaging. Custom-made shapes and displays provide a high-quality, bespoke feel to your display, showcasing your products or services in an engaging and memorable way. By incorporating these innovative features, you’ll make a lasting impression on visitors and leave a lasting impact.

    Modular Exhibition Stands

    A modular exhibition stand is a display stand that is made up of separate components that can be easily assembled to create a complete stand. This type of stand is versatile, reusable, and can be customised to fit any event space or design aesthetic. With a modular stand, you have the ability to change the size, layout, and even add or remove components to create a unique display every time.

    If you’re looking to create a stunning trade show display that is versatile, customisable, and cost-effective, a modular exhibition stand is the perfect solution. With its ability to be easily reconfigured and reused, a modular stand is a smart investment for any business looking to make an impact at their next event.

    Shell Scheme Stands

    A shell scheme is a type of exhibition stand system that consists of interchangeable modules that can be assembled to create stands of varying sizes. These modules come in one-meter sections, allowing exhibitors to build stands that are tailored to their specific needs. The modular design of shell schemes means that they are highly adaptable and can be reconfigured to fit different exhibition layouts.

    When you work with us, we collaborate with the show organisers to remove any restricting ceiling grids and fascia, allowing us to design high-level branding features that will make your display stand out. Our team of expert designers will work closely with you to create a unique and eye-catching design that captures the essence of your brand.

    Your display is an entirely independent structure, which is not fixed or part of the organiser’s booth. This means you have complete control over the design and layout of your stand. And because it’s modular, it can be reconfigured for different spaces, so you can reuse your stand at future shows in different spaces. This saves you time, money, and resources, while still providing a consistent and high-quality experience for your customers.
