Managed Exhibition Solutions

Managed Solutions

Most businesses simply don’t have the resources to manage each and every aspect that goes into the creation and execution of an exhibition stand at a show. A managed solution from a full-service exhibition stand design and build contractor will take ownership of the project while guiding you through the rest of the process.

When considering whether to do it all yourself or employ the services on offer from your stand design and build contractor, it’s important to factor in the cost of your time when managing a process such as design and build of your stand.

Even some of the larger self-build stands can become very time consuming and costly to deal with when considering the logistics, installation, dismantling and storage that’s involved. There’s also Organiser liaison and stringent health and safety rules and regulations which need to be adhered to. 

Take Advantage of a full service exhibition company

Nimlok’s managed service solutions allows marketers to focus on their show objectives while our team of experts manage the rest. As such, we feel it’s important to take advantage of the offerings of a full-service exhibition company for the following reasons:

1: A single supplier for all your exhibiting needs

Nimlok offers the most comprehensive team and production capability in the industry – all under one roof.  Our award-winning team’s passion for bringing your message to life and helping you succeed stands us apart, while our unrivalled production resources and meticulous pre-event preview provide peace of mind.

2: In-house manufacturing

From our state of the art facility in Northamptonshire, our 100+ strong team of consultants, designers, digital engagement experts, project managers, printers, welders, seamstresses, engineers, joiners and AV technicians boast a complete, one-stop exhibiting service.

Because we set the standards for our in-house production, our quality control measures are strict as is our attention to health and safety.

Our continual R&D programme means we are continually push the boundaries to and utilise the latest technology – whether that be 3D printing or ensuring images remain pin-sharp on our 5-metre large-format printer.

3: Exhibition stand graphics

As graphics play a major part in the fundamental success of any exhibition stand, we recognise the importance of all graphic production remaining in-house. As such, Nimlok is one of the few exhibition stand contractors with a significant in-house large format print resource.

Printing innovation and technology have been substantial areas of investment for us. This way we maintain the best cutting-edge technology and tools for first class print quality and output. We have a dedicated and experienced team of art workers, file runners, printers, finishers, sewers and technicians to guide and advise you or your graphic agency, ensuring a fantastic end result.

Our 5 metre wide format printer can deliver high quality and very durable print that does not require over laminates which can be prone to peeling. The prints are UV stable and water resistant, making them ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications and we can print on a variety of substrates including fabric.

Our graphics department is also equipped with the latest digital cutter technology with an optical sensor detecting cut marks and guiding a knife, laser or router, ensuring perfect finishing on all materials. This enables us to cut out the most intricate logos and shapes and make a real feature of certain areas of your exhibition stand.

4: Exhibition stand project management

Knowing you are in safe hands is important, so we allocate our clients a dedicated project manager to act as a constant point of contact throughout the delivery phase of the project. Our team of dedicated project managers ensures your delivery runs smoothly and you are kept up to date with the progress of the project.

As with any timeline there will be key milestones where we will need sign off on elements like materials, flooring, lighting and colour schemes. We will make sure you are aware of these deadlines in plenty of time to enable you to meet them. Our PM’s liaise with our in-house production and take care of the external liaising with Organisers and on-site services.

Before your stand is packed and shipped to your show location, you’ll be invited to attend a preview at our manufacturing facility in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. Our pre-build service provides a valuable ‘dry run’ before your event. It gives you the opportunity to see your stand built prior to the show, make sure you are happy with it and run through all details with your project manager before it goes anywhere near the show hall.

Finally, we will liaise with our build team and you to ensure successful delivery of your project to the show site.

6: Exhibition stand audio-visual

Whilst most exhibition stand contractors outsource audio-visual, at Nimlok its core to our offering. Our in-house team of technicians manage our clients’ requirements with our extensive inventory of hardware including 22” to 80” screens, touch-screens, TV walls, tablets, laptops, kiosks, PA systems, and accessories. Our technicians are also available to clients wishing to commission on-stand technical support to ensure complex content can be delivered without risk.

Exhibitors utilising digital content to convey their propositions in the exhibition halls is now the norm, making the presentation of digital content a key priority. Having a dedicated in-house AV resource allows for pre-event testing of the content on the actual devices to be used, rather than running the risk of the content and hardware coming together for the first time just a few hours before the show which is common place for those that outsource.
