Budget Exhibition Stands at ICC Wales

With our workshop just an hour away from ICC Wales, we pride ourselves on providing our clients with professional trade show presence at affordable prices. We have a range of budget exhibition stands available starting from just £350 per SQM. 

Our budget 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. We use fabrics and panel graphics as our finishing layer, so all the faces of the stand can be customised with your own graphics and branding. Not only does this provide you with a professional looking stand on a budget, but it’s also much more sustainable ensuring your exhibiting carbon foot print is reduced.

To make this option even more economical, we are also able to offer multi-year contracts which means we can store your fabric and panel graphics in our warehouse so they can be used year after year reducing the cost of exhibiting at the International Convention Centre Wales.

Whether you have a 90 sqm or 9 sqm space – we’ll help find a solution. Contact us to request your free, no obligation proposal at the button below, or find out more about our budget modular exhibition stands

Exhibiting at ICC Wales

This modern, innovative exhibition centre is the pride of Wales, hosting an amazing array of exhibitions year round.  If you’re looking for a stand contractor for ICC Wales for the first time, we’ve provided some essential questions and answers below. 

When should I request a stand design and build proposal?
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. To request a stand design proposal contact us here 

How much will it cost to build my exhibition stand at ICC Wales?
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 that 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.
