Our budget exhibition stands, are built with our stock of Bematrix.  Although the structures are modular, the finishing is bespoke, ensuring your stand is individual and represents your brand the way you want.

When should I request a stand design and build proposal for the ICC?

In short, the sooner we receive a request the better!  With busy schedules we know this may not always be possible, and we can accept requests for last minute builds, but as a general rule of thumb we would ideally like to have contracts signed off at least a month or two before the show.

How much will it cost to build my exhibition stand at the ICC Birmingham

This is probably the most common question that we get asked. 

Take a moment and imagine a house . . . Is it a big house? a small house? does it sit on a large piece of land or a small piece of land? How many floors does it have? Does it have a garage for storage? Is it a modern house or a traditional house? Is the structure steel or wooden?

Now take a moment, and come back to think about your exhibition space, and the stand that you would like us to design and build for you. To calculate the costs of your trade show stand we need to understand exactly what you want from your space, and your objectives of participating at your chosen trade show. Once we feel that we can visualize your ‘imaginary house’ we will use our experience and expertise to create your ‘house’ in our 3D design software, and calculate the costs of building it for you.

More often than not, we will ask you how much you’d like to spend on your stand. The reason for this is that we frequently build trade show stands ranging from £2,000 – £70,000 GBP. So what we can design and build very much depends on what you consider to be a reasonable amount to spend on your trade show display – after all, you have to ensure that you are getting a suitable return on your investment – whether that be through brand exposure or the selling of your products/services.

The length of time it takes to design your exhibition booth very much depends on the scale and requirements. Although we can sometimes turn around booth designs and costs within a few days, we usually prefer to have approximately 2 weeks to develop full design concepts, prepare 3D visuals and costs when possible.

The simple answer is the longer lead time we have the better. However we also understand that you’re busy people so we request that stands are confirmed at least one month before the show. We occasionally will accept projects with less than one month building time, however this will depend on the scale and details of the project.

Hopefully our answers above will have helped provide you with a bit of information about our services and how we work. However, if you have a question that we haven’t covered above or would like us to provide you with a free proposal contact us at info@fretfreeproductions.com
