What exhibition event stand is right for me in 2024?

Exhibition stands come in various types. Cost and budget for each type can vary based on factors such as size, design complexity, materials used and additional features. Keep in mind that the budget estimates provided below are general ranges and can vary based on specific requirements and customisation. Please note that these costs may have changed since publication.


Banner Stands

Vertical banners or displays that are cost-effective and easy to set up. They are suitable for smaller spaces and are often used for branding.

Cost Range: £100 – £1,000


Shell Scheme Stands

These are basic, modular stands provided by the event organisers. They often include a back wall, side walls, carpet and basic lighting.

Cost Range: £500 – £2,000


Pop-Up Stands

Portable and lightweight stands that are easy to set up and transport. They are often used for smaller events or as part of a larger exhibition.

Cost Range: £500 – £5,000


Custom Modular Stands

More sophisticated than shell scheme stands, these are modular systems that can be customised to fit specific needs. They offer more design flexibility.

Cost Range: £3,000 – £15,000


Interactive Stands

Stands incorporating technology such as touchscreens, interactive displays, or virtual reality. These stands can create a more engaging experience.

Cost Range: £5,000 – £30,000+


Custom Built Stands

Fully customised stands designed and built according to specific requirements. They offer the highest level of flexibility and branding opportunities.

Cost Range: £10,000 – £50,000+


Double Decker Stands

Stands with two levels, providing additional space for meetings, lounges, or product demonstrations.

Cost Range: £20,000 – £100,000+


Island Stands

Larger, open stands not attached to any surrounding structures. They provide 360-degree visibility and ample space for creative designs.

Cost Range: £30,000 – £150,000+


It’s important to note that these are general estimates, and actual costs can vary based on individual requirements, design complexity and the choice of materials. Additionally, costs associated with graphics, furniture, flooring, AV equipment, transportation and installation should be considered in the overall budget. When planning for an exhibition stand, working with experienced exhibition stand builders or designers can help you create a stand that meets your goals within your budget constraints.
