Every project that we work on here at Inspire Displays has a dedicated Project Manager. We are here to work with our clients to ensure that we take the initial concept from design to execution, allowing their exhibition experience to go as smoothly as possible. Every day is different here at Inspire Displays, but here are just a few of the jobs we get up to on a daily basis…
Our Project Managers have the exciting role of working with their clients to collaborate on the best way to showcase their business with their bespoke stand. This involves having an initial consultation call, where we go over everything from why you’re looking to exhibit, what stand space you have, how much storage you require, the budget you’re working to and many other elements. Then we move on to collate all the information for our design team to work their magic. We can then share the bespoke design with our clients, bringing their stand requirements to life.
As our workshop is on site, we are very lucky to have daily catch ups with our workshop manager and exhibition joiners. This is where we handover the technical drawings, which allows the workshop to then build as per our bespoke design. We also can discuss the status of projects to update our clients. Having the workshop downstairs is a great plus for us as we get the joy of seeing our stands go from being pieces of MDF and sheets of laminate, and see them transform into structures 4 metres high and more.
Risk Assessments, Method Statements & Stand Submissions
As part of our Project Management service we provide the risk assessments for the build of our stands direct to the organisers. This is something that we run through with our directors and workshop manager to ensure every eventuality is covered. We also submit method statements that explain how we build the stand on site from the ground up and what materials we use. Along with this we also submit the working drawings of your stand, this is so the organisers of the show can provide us with permission to build our clients stands on-site.
Electrics & Internet Orders
Another responsibility of the Project Management team is to establish the electrics and internet requirements of our clients, such as how many charging points are needed, how many TVs are on the stand, if a fridge is required etc; we then submit their orders to the organisers. We draw out on a plan where the electrics are required with what wattage; this is to ensure that when our joiners lay the platform for the stand, the electricity supply is located in the right spot to pull through for our clients requirements. We then submit this to the organisers with the clients details so that they’re invoiced directly ahead of the show.
Supporting our clients
The exhibition world has lots of unique elements to it. With procedures varying from every venue and show, it can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. This is why our Project Management team are on hand for our clients with any questions they may have about their show, we really do make the process as smooth as possible for them.
Handing over the stand
After months of collaborating with our clients, from the initial brief process, working with the workshop team for the build of the stand, proofing graphics, (the list goes on!) There is nothing quite like turning up to the venue and seeing the stand coming together on site. As we have such a great crew of workshop joiners, we only ever have to do a few final finishing touches ahead of the client’s arrival. It’s always so rewarding to have our clients surprised at how much the stand looks like the proposed design, and we always have huge sense of pride seeing them take pictures to share with their colleagues.
