Shell or Space Only – Keep it simple!

By |2023-02-14T17:31:20+00:00February 14th, 2023|Categories: David's Blog, Exhibitions|0 Comments

So you've booked yourself a shell scheme space and with that package purchased from the organiser you get a carpet, 1x 500w socket, ceiling grid with lights and a facia with a name board...BUT You've seen a shell scheme stand where the stand looks better as they've opened up the space by taking away the ceiling grid and fascia and built their stand to 2.5m high or higher. WELL If you want a shell, use the shell. If you want a more open space, use the space only plot. It causes problems when amending a shell. The organiser gets the instruction from [...]

It's all for my boys! Well that was epic! 1 month down and I feel that I need a weeks holiday! It seems in the events space that opportunities come in waves. Well I've been fighting and trying to keep on top of the wave these last 4 weeks. Getting a new productivity software into working order as the enquiries start flowing. Tricky! Getting in the region of 75 stand build enquiries in a month is like running as fast as Usain Bolt into Iron Mike Tysons right hook! When you're the person making the decisions it sometimes takes its toll. By [...]

Following quickly on from my last post Redblu have also another string to our bow which we haven't told anybody about (because we are a small company without a marketing person) and we've been very busy post covid working. So yes, we design and build our exhibition stands and deliver them across the UK. From 6sqm tiddlers to over 100sqm monsters. But....... We also deliver whole shows. To date our biggest conference we've delivered had 55 individual stands. I need to go and count up how many linear metres of walling we now have in our stocks, suffice to say if you [...]

I've got so set in my ways when describing what we do here at Redblu that I've lost track of the other ways of saying the same thing. Confused? Let me explain - I always say when asked what Redblu do is that we offer a variety of Creative Branding Solutions and we specialise in modular exhibition stands. Full service, from brief to delivery, including the 3d design, project management, logistics, installation and dismantle. Well that is fine for the UK customers, but not from abroad. Our friends from overseas describe exhibition stands as booths. So it follows that we at Redblu [...]

10 Steps to Ensure Exhibition Success

Hi I’m David and I’ve been involved with exhibition stand design and build for over 20 years. I wanted to share some helpful information based on my experience. I hope it will help Marketers deliver better results when they exhibit. Plan Early Give yourself plenty of time. Ideally at least 6 months before an event. Think the 5 P’s – Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance­­ Book your Space Early Booking early means you can select the best space available. Booking late means your choice will be limited, Think back corner of the exhibition hall that nobody goes to! Scope of Works [...]

ASIT in Aberdeen

We were back up at the P&J live in Aberdeen recently. Couple of stand builds to do and just realised it is so good to be back working on stand design and build again. Last September was the start of a year and a half of anxiety but we weathered the storm and managed to get through it quite well and now we are cooking with the proverbial gas! ASIT Exhibition Stands We live chatting about all things exhibition stands, so get in touch and have a chat with me.

Edinburgh Gin @ The Ideal Home Show

By |2023-02-20T16:27:44+00:00April 6th, 2022|Categories: David's Blog, Exhibitions|Tags: |0 Comments

Edinburgh Gin @ The Ideal Home Show Another new customer on board and this was the first little stand we've produced for Ian Macleod Distillers with their Edinburgh Gin Brand. Pretty simple 4m wide backwall with tension fabric graphics, counters with storage for all their sampling stock and the usual services required to deliver the stand. We re-used their shelving display unit and gave it a makeover. All good, client delighted and onto the next event, Food and Drink Expo in Birmingham.
