Following the conclusion in 2016 of a 3 year contract to provide AVIVA’s stand at BIBA the pressure was really on in late 2016 and early 2017 for us to retain the project for another 3 years. Up against some of the country’s top agencies we put our best foot forward and following a creative and competitive pitch we’re pleased to say we won the contract again for another 3 years.
The new stand follows a totally new look which in common with the previous design was planned to fulfil the AVIVA BIBA slot at Manchester for 3 years. With this in mind although a totally custom built concept the stand elements have been made to disassemble and store ready to be economically rolled out again the following year. Custom made lightboxes and feature shapes incorporate the latest in TFS (tension fabric system) graphics to make replacement of annual graphics and messages not just easy but cost effective too. Stand lighting and lighting effects are all LED, state of the art technology which looks good, ticks the environmental box and saves a pretty penny too. Similarly the high level branded structure is a modern 8 metre x 4 metre, totally double sided feature facing all four elevations which is made up of a lightweight aluminium frame with TFS graphics throughout. As with many venues Manchester Central now ask that high level, flown structures are created thoughtfully with safety at the forefront. No longer do venues want to see heavy, old fashioned banner and solid structures suspended above vulnerable visitors. These TFS structures for flown use can prove costly for one off stand use so for this reason we’ve invested in the hardware adding it to our rental inventory so clients need only to buy the graphics.
