Experience have had the pleasure of designing and creating some of the UK’s best attended exhibitions, attractions and events for clients and venues large and small. With every new project comes an exciting opportunity to employ new techniques and technologies. However we pride ourselves in combining these with tried and tested design and production methods to enable us to create the best solution for the brief, the budget and the timescale. Our skills lie in being able to evaluate the core needs of a project and to explain our thoughts clearly with well presented drawings, visuals, models and mock-ups that take you through the process from ideas to reality. Much of our initial assessment of a project is often free of charge to enable you to see if we fit in with your team and share your expectations.

Experience have created anything from small pop-ups stands to double deckers on worldwide tours. Our client list covers some major names including BP and Gatwick Airport for which we have developed not just a stand but an experience too. Our design based approach helps you explore every opportunity for exhibiting your product and brand as well as maximising impact and response. We are always keen to ensure that your exhibition gets noticed and works for you. This might be via an interactive event, game or activity or something eye-catching and news worthy. Experience can take you through the exhibition process from initial designs, visuals, models, build and realisation. We aim to take on all aspects of the task leaving you and your team to concentrate on the business you need to do. Let us help you get an exhibition that works for you and your audience.

  • Press and Publicity Events
  • Weird and Wonderful
  • Impossible Timeframes

After almost 30 years in the business it’s fair to say that we have been asked to come up with an unusual array of objects, settings, features and stunts over the years. We have stuck a man to a wall by just his hand in Vancouver, created the longest montage of footballers at over 440m around Leicester Stadium, made the largest Holograms of their time at the Tower Hill Pageant they were over 1.5m high by 1.2m wide, we have set a Tardis into a garden at the Chelsea Flower show, designed floating stages for Heineken, created inflatable dancing vacuum cleaner costumes for Vax and built a walk through Electric Maze. We like the Unusual, we like to explore projects in ways that will make them exciting and memorable for you and your audience. Think what they will remember, it won’t be the food or the hotel, it will be the emotion, the visual, the Unusual ! Hit us with the impossible and see what we can do. Don’t ask, don’t get. Don’t do, doesn’t happen. Let us help you make great things happen.
