Having booked a plot at the Bett Education show held at Olympia in London, Pinacl Solutions enlisted Parker Design for their exhibition booth design and build services.
With a fairly small footprint to work with, creating the right design to maximise the available space was crucial. We also had the added challenge of a structural column supporting the hall roof (which we weren’t allowed to touch) being right in the corner of our plot. One of Pinacl’s main criteria for the booth design was to be able to demonstrate their software products. We also needed to work in space for a secure store area in which to house the PCs driving both the demo screens, and four large plasma screens.
With floor space at a premium we gained impact for the booth design by building high.
Using the maximum 4m height allowance we built a central overhanging curved wall, evocative of a huge wave. Complete with integrated spotlights illuminating the demo area below, the ‘wave’ was noticeable right across the exhibition hall and gave a sense of movement and flow which was echoed through the wall graphics.
To frame the wave we designed two towers, the right one to disguise the hall column and contain two plasma screens, and the left one to contain two further plasma screens as well as provide lockable storage space for the PCs, DVD players and internet router, as well as coats and bags.
For the demo area we designed and built three cylindrical illuminated ‘pods’, each one concealing cabling running back to the store, powering each of the ‘Thin client’ demo screens seated on top.
Proof that even with a relatively small plot, with the right exhibition booth design and build expertise it is possible to fit a ‘quart into a pint pot’.
