WESA bronze award winners

The World Exhibition Stand Awards
Last year we were invited to enter ourselves into our first ever design awards. No idea how it would turn out, no idea we would even be finalists or anywhere near the winners, being a "World" Exhibition Awards and all. The categories were many but we felt the best sector was the print sector, as we had recently completed a project for RISO at The Print Show at the NEC followed by some very generous feedback on the result.

Anyway, the email came through this week which has been a highly welcome bit of good news in the few months of otherwise rather gloomy news. It was just the little bit of light that we needed. Looking at the two awards above ours we were certainly amongst some creative giants.


Here is our blog from earlier this year.

These awards celebrate the very best in exhibition stand design and experience and our nomination came from the stand we designed and built for RISO at the 2019 edition of The Print Show at the NEC in Birmingham. An invitation arose to enter a project and this one was recently complete so, we thought, "Why not enter and see where it goes?" 

RISO needed a vibrant stand to act as a back drop to show case their fleet of production printers as well as premier their new product, the Valezus T2100.

The nominated design was an eye-catching modular exhibition stand that incorporated 4 separate product zones, linked by a common graphic thread with a completely new set of designs and icons, a green "relaxed" meeting zone, a video showreel, lighting, cable management and secure storage.

The sustainable benefit of this type of stand is that it is re-usable and re-configurable due to the superb design and quality of the system. The only elements that ever need looking at are the graphics as the amount of different shapes it could become are many and we "design in" the potential for future changes to help this.

"It is safe to say that in all areas Vivid Pixel overdelivered. Even the exhibition organisers said if there had been an award for the best stand then RISO would have won. Our brand profile was raised, our feature eco green wall was a definite conversation starter and we received our first order just 3 weeks after the show.”
