The adverse weather conditions may be closing airports and roads up and down the UK, but nothing is stopping exhibitors preparing for upcoming exhibitions. In fact, one of the nation’s biggest events, the National Wedding Show kicks off next weekend in Manchester before heading to Birmingham and London, and exhibitors will have to be ready to brave the cold. Leading display stand supplier Printdesigns is making exhibiting easier for businesses thanks to its exclusive TEXstyle range of fabric exhibition stands.
The revolutionary stands print the graphics onto fabric rather than conventional PVC, which makes them much more durable and less partial to damage. Unlike traditional models the featherweight textile stands can be carried in one hand which means transporting the stand from a vehicle to the venue will be quicker – no fussing in the wintry showers! Rain, snow or hail is unlikely to damage the fabric graphics as they are even suitable to wash in the washing machine when a refresh is required.
Mark Thompson, Sales Director at Printdesigns said, “The TEXstyle range completely rethinks the whole exhibition stand concept It seems amazing to us now how clunky and difficult traditional stands are. Fabric stands give the same high quality appearance but have plenty of extra benefits, so they are a sensible investment at this time of year when the weather can be a hindrance.”
The innovative design of the TEXstyle collection has been recognised in the local press recently, as The Stoke Sentinel reported on the product developments. The benefits in terms of aesthetic, ease of assembly and portability have also been noted by a growing number of clients who are upgrading from the older-style display stand.
Furthermore, Printdesigns is the only UK exhibition stand supplier who design, print and finish all products in-house rather than outsourcing manufacturing overseas. After investing in specialist dye sublimation equipment to print on fabrics, and hiring two seamstresses to finish the stands professionally, the company has full control over quality and shipping schedules.
Even though the TEXstyle range is fairly new there is no compromise on choice when it comes to choosing the right display stand. Banner stands are available straight, curved or swirl, and backwall banners, counters and full bundles can also be purchased online or over the phone.
Mark added, “The fabric range sets us apart. We’ve gone from being successful in a very competitive market into a market where we are almost exclusive. The idea of fabric stands has been around for a while but many companies send their product to the Far East, mainly China, where the skills to sew the fabric are available. We can do it all ourselves in our premises, and that’s what sets us apart.”
