How does the exhibition stand design process work?
1. Brief Consultation
We’ll get started with a short consultation over phone or zoom where we’ll discuss your goals for the exhibition, past experiences and brand ambitions.
This is also a great opportunity to discuss the best way to get the maximum value from your budget.
2. Virtual Stand Design
We’ll get to work on your design and present you with a virtual stand design draft for your review.
We start by defining the layout, and visitor flow to make the most of the space. We’ll fill in the branding using any images provided and from your website to aid the visual process.
At this stage, we will provide a full quote for the project.
3. Feedback and Revised Designs
Once you’ve reviewed your design, there will always be tweaks and changes to be made – there can be a few rounds of designs to get the stand looking perfect.
4. Revise Branding
Once you’re happy with the layout and style of the stand, we’ll refine the branding and messaging. For this we either use your own in house/freelance designers or you can use our team to prepare the artwork.
5. Final Designs
With the final branding, we’ll create a set of stand visuals that will give real impression of your stand. We can make final tweaks to furniture layout and layout to make sure your 100% happy with how your stand will look.
How much will my exhibition stand cost?
Our exhibition stand design process is completely free.
We feel strongly that you should only commit to a exhibition contractor once you are happy that they can deliver your perfect stand, this decision can only been made once you’ve been through the design process.
To allow you to get the most value from your investment, we tailor the stand to work within your budget right from the start of the design process. All stands are accurately quoted, what you see in the quote and design is what you get.
Know one likes a nasty surprise on show day!
(obviously any added extras or changes to the final spec will be added to final invoice
How much do exhibition stands actually cost?
We’ve put together a handy PDF that shows price brackets for our average stands, which should help with your budgeting. Please go ahead and download the exhibition stand budget guide from the link below.
How long does the design process take?
After an initial consultation we’ll get the first round of designs for your to review within 5 working days.
To get the most from the exhibition stand design process, we recommend starting the process around 3-6 months before a show. This give a health amount of time to the creative process in the early stage.
Time isn’t always on our side, so we’re used to fast tracking the design process to meet tighter deadlines.
If you’re tight on time, please get in touch to see how we can help.
What types of exhibition stands do you design?
Custom Exhibitions Stand
Our custom stands use a combination of modular infrastructure with bespoke branding and furniture. these stands can be designed as one offs, or designed to be reusable for future events. We offer both hire, and purchase options for these stands to maximise your budget.
Our custom exhibitions stands are fully installed by our trained technicians, providing a stress-free option to exhibiting.
Self-Build Exhibitions Stands
Self-build stands are designed to be built by the exhibitor team and are easily transported in small vans.
Modular frameworks, portable graphics and fold flat furniture create stands with high impact, whilst also being relatively easy to put together.
These stands can either be built within a shell scheme space, or on a space-only plot.
Shell Scheme Stands
These stands are designed to fit within shell scheme spaces, they are either completely freestanding or attach directly to the walls of the stand.
These can be fitted DIY and transported in a car or small van

“Our biggest and best stand yet this year, thanks to Graphic Mill.
This is our 4th year working with the Graphic Mill team and we gave them our most challenging brief yet. And once again, they delivered it, with great passion.
