Nothing was too much trouble and Mark always had time to discuss minuscule details no matter what time of day.  Mark and his team were present throughout the stand build and checked in several times a day during the exhibition to make sure all was running smoothly – and if it wasn’t things were fixed as soon as possible. A dream to work with!

Think all exhibition companies are the same?  Think again.

When you’re looking for a company to design and build your next exhibition stand you have a huge number of exhibition stand design and build companies to choose from.  But how do you choose the one that’s right for you?  They’re all the same, right?  You see a salesman, who passes on your brief to a designer, then the estimator costs it and the project manages runs the job until you see it on site.  That’s the way it works, surely?

At most companies, yes, but not at MPD Creative.  We are passionate about stand design, which is why we believe that the MPD way is the best way.  You don’t deal with separate salespeople, project managers or estimators. Instead, from start to finish you deal with designers who are trained in the whole process from brief to site. We sketch ideas for you at briefing meetings, talk costs with you at design meetings and organise all the elements of the exhibition world to deliver you a great exhibition stand. Our maxim is ‘Listen – Design – Deliver.’ It’s that simple.  Click here to see how the way we work compares to the norm.

What do YOU want from your Exhibition Stand Builder?

When you’re drawing up your list of things you want from your exhibition stand design and build company, every person’s list will be different, but some of the following may be on your’s:

  • My exhibition stand needs to be on time, every time, GUARANTEED.
  • I want my exhibition stand builder to LISTEN to me!
  • I need a company to handle everything for me because I’m so busy.
  • I want help and advice to make the most of the show and my budget.
  • I need great support on site and help setting up my exhibition stand.
  • I would like a gorgeous good looking designer to deal with, not a salesman.

Would you like to put a big fat tick against each and every one of those?  We may even be able to manage the last one, although Trading Standards may have something to say about the ‘good looking’ bit… Some of that list you’ll find at many companies, but we believe that you’ll only find the first and last here.  You can read more about our handover time guarantee by clicking this link.  The main thing that sets us apart from the competition is that we are designers, NOT salesmen; designers that can project manage from start to finish.  Every detail of your brief makes it to the designer, with nothing lost in passing it over, because it isn’t passed over.  You get an experienced exhibition stand designer who will listen to what you want and produce a design to match your brief and budget.  It is also the same designer that will see your project all the way through to site, ensuring that your finished stand design arrives on site as it was drawn and as you expect it to be.  See more of how we do things HERE.  Our motto is simple: Listen > Design > Deliver.  We think that works really well; as do our clients:

The ONLY Exhibition Company with a Handover Time Guarantee

Have you ever turned up to your stand expecting to set up and been greeted with something similar to this?

Exhibition Stand Design & Build NEC
Picture the scene: you’d agreed a time with your stand builder for you to turn up on site and set up your products and displays.  Hell, you even came a bit late because you’d forgotten from last year just how long it takes to get through the queue with the van, and Dave from accounts had the keys and his cat was ill this morning… but you’re all finally at the show and raring to go.  But your stand isn’t.  In fact it’s far from it.

Instead of setting up and getting to the hotel in time for dinner, a relax in the bar and a quick team talk before the first morning of the show, you’re sitting around waiting for your stand builder to finish building the stand before you can even start.  You get excuse after excuse, but this doesn’t prevent a late night, missed dinner, rushed team talk and bleary eyes in the morning after finishing at midnight.  Not to mention all the overtime that now has to be paid because of the late set up.  Not the best start to the show.

We agree, which is why we came up with our Money Back Guarantee.  It’s quite simple: if we have agreed a time for you to begin setting up your stand and you can’t do so because it’s not ready, then you decide how much of the balance payment for your stand you will pay.  No arguments from me; no haggling – your choice.  If that means a 50% reduction for your stand because we ruined your set up, then so be it.

Too good to be true?  You get it in writing, signed by the ‘MP’ of MPD.  We’re that confident.  For more information click here to read more about our unique Exhibition Stand Handover Time Guarantee.
