Exhibition stands are mainly subdivided into custom stands and conventional system stands.
System stands are based on modular design principles. They are built by combining different modules. The basic construction consists of vertical backup profiles onto which the wall plates and horizontal architraves are hooked. In spite of these standard parameters, the number of possible combinations is almost unlimited.
Custom stands are more expensive than system stands because they don't consist of prefabricated set constructions. The advantage of custom stands is that there is no limit for the creativity of the designer since they can be built in all imaginable ways. Standard materials for building them include wood, metal and plastic.
A compromise between the design and price can be generated through a merger of system modules and custom elements, which will in turn lead to the creation of a distinctive stand.
