PART ONE: PRIOR TO THE EXHIBITION VENUE MOVE IN
A modern show stand and its construction require not only a modern design but also flawless implementation. As a result, this complicated process necessitates the assistance of experts. SOL in Europe, as a top exhibition stall designer and fabricator, knows exactly what our clients desire. To make this operation go as smoothly as possible, our team of skilled fabricators divides the job into two sections and determines what can be completed before the venue’s move-in date and what must be completed on-site.
This blog gives an overview of the factors that our team considers and elaborates on the work that they do.
1) Informing the craftspeople on the design parameters, particularly the size and measurements
To ensure world-class quality and perfection through stall fabrication, the tiniest detail must be considered when creating an exhibition booth. As a result, managers and supervisors must clearly communicate the dimensions and specifications to the craftspeople. They should detail the dimensions of each aspect, such as the walls, the entrance, the storage space, the meeting area, the brand display fascia, and the product display area.
This would ensure that the stall is not only useful, but also durable. Furthermore, the booth’s aesthetic attractiveness would improve, as such features have a great impact on the stall’s delicacy.
2) Material acquisition
In the process of stall fabrication, the team of skilled specialists ensures that raw materials are procured that satisfy the design specifications while ensuring that quality is not compromised.
3) Stall Fabrication of various exhibition stall components
The workshop is frequently where the many pieces that would make up the exhibition stall are manufactured. This is done with the goal of completing the elements before the exhibition venue’s move-in date. This is an important stage because it involves the manufacture of the real stall, although in pieces.
4) Applying the last touches to the elements
It’s necessary to apply the finishing touches to the stall’s elements twice. At the workshop, the first round of finishing touches is completed. Surface levelling, gap filling, polishing, and other similar procedures fall under this category. A protective base coat of paint is also applied to protect the elements from scratches and other damage.
5) The packaging of the stall’s components
The components of the booth must be properly packaged because there is always a danger that they may be damaged during transit.Crew should be dedicated to this area, ensuring that the ingredients are safeguarded.
Building a stand for an exhibition is a time-consuming and labor-intensive procedure that necessitates thorough planning. Furthermore, the time limits imposed by exhibition locations add to the stress, as fabricators are typically only given 2-5 days to work on the site prior to the start of the exhibition. Experienced stall fabricators alleviate this stress by completing the majority of the job ahead of time.
PART TWO: WORKING AT THE LOCATION
When the fabricators get to the exhibition site, there are a few things they need to think about before they start working on the actual stall fabrication. These include ensuring that all paperwork and legal issues are in order, such as obtaining service passes for the team, submitting a security deposit if the organisers require it, double-checking the layout and position of the stall, and, if applicable, checking power and water supplies.
After the above-mentioned confirmations have been completed, the actual stall fabrication process can begin, which will include the following steps.
1) The floor
This is usually the first task that is completed at an exhibition venue. The flooring (stone/wooden/carpeting/tiles, etc.) serves as a basis for the rest of the stall fabrication work. This can also be used as a layout sketch for the stall. The precision, sturdiness, and visual appeal of the stall can all be harmed by even the tiniest measurement or material flaws.
2) Wall and fascia fabrication
The construction of walls and fascia (the structure that shows the branding, normally located at the top of the stall) is the next step in the venue’s fabrication process.
3) Work with electricity
Electrical fixture work is frequently next on fabricators’ to-do list. In addition, some stalls necessitate some plumbing work (for decorative fountains, etc. or kitchenettes). This work is done at the same time as the electrical work.
4) Assembling the components

At this phase in the stall fabrication process, the inside elements of the stall must be assembled. At Focus Design, we always advocate constructing these pieces in advance at the workshops. If done correctly, this stage entails the unpacking, assembly, and installation of these components.
5) Putting the final touches on the stall
Leveling, polishing/painting, and repairing defects encountered during the shipment of the stall’s components are all included in the finishing touches.
The procedure of putting up the branding (flex banners, glow signs, and other items) is normally done at the end of the stall fabrication process.
7) Before handover, clean the location
The staff is in charge of collecting rubbish from the exhibition area before handing over the stall to the clients and before the show opens.
