Birmingham Modular Exhibition System

A brilliant example of how our modular exhibiting system works.

In 2008, we were approached by Birmingham City Council to create a modular exhibiting system they could use year after year. The system needed to be robust and weatherproof, easily configured, easy to store and easy to reassemble. They also wanted to be able to use different numbers of stands for different exhibitions, even splitting the stands to be used in separate spaces at the same time.
The first exhibition went up in Centenary Square, Birmingham, and was opened by the RT Hon David Cameron, MP. The exhibition, Knight of the Camera, was a collection of photographs taken by another Conservative MP, Sir Benjamin Stone, during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Since then, the system has been used year on year for a range of exhibitions and in a number of locations across Birmingham city centre.
