Even if you’re in the later stages of planning, we’re here to assist! While good design takes time, we can still work with you to ensure a successful outcome for your custom display whether it be a custom design or from our Premium Hire range.

Step 1: Understanding Your Objectives

We begin with a briefing process to determine your stand objectives, brand essence and budget. We can quickly determine if you require our custom design services or alternatively if a Premium Hire design from our in-house range would be best suited to your needs.


Step 2: Developing Your Design

Our skilled industrial designers will work closely with you to conceptualise a bespoke display design aligned with your brief. You receive a full colour renders and a detailed quote with all your inclusions.


Step 3: Fabricating Your Solution

Upon design approval, our Producers and Project Management team will oversee production to ensure timely delivery against set milestones. We also offer a ‘Test Assemble’ service for you to view the display ahead of dispatch and installation.


Step 4: Managing Your Delivery

Our installations team will handle the build, ensuring safe and show-ready installation. We will have a dedicated hand-over session with you and your team once completed to ensure that you have a full understanding of your display and everything is in working order.


Step 5: Providing Your Support

After installation, your Account Manager will conduct a debriefing session with you and your disposal or post storage solutions for future use of your display.

The cost of a custom exhibition stand can vary depending on several factors, including the size, design complexity, materials used and additional features. To ensure you receive the best rates and value for your stand, provide us with as much time as possible before the event date to collaborate on the design with you, source materials, fabricate your solution and arrange logistics. Time is a cruical factor in the custom design process which allows us to optimise efficiencies and negotiate favourable terms, ultimately delivering a cost-effective solution tailored to your needs.

The timeline can vary depending on the complexity of the design and size of the stand. We will provide you with a clear timeline with set milestone dates during the consultation phase including design approval, production and installation.

While we can capture the essence of the original design, we’ll tailor it to suit the preferences, material availability, legalities and needs of the Australian market.
