    The team at Icon Exhibition & Display Ltd get a very different view of popular exhibition venues like Telford Exhibition Centre, the NEC and Earl’s Court, as when they arrive, the halls are completely empty, except for lorries and contractors!

    MD of Icon Exhibitions, Wayne Ball says: “It’s the only time you really get to appreciate the enormous size of some of the venues, as you can see the whole space before it gets filled with exhibition stands. It’s amazing seeing the transformation, as the stands get built and the carpet goes down ready for the doors to open and the visitors to come flooding in.”

    Over its 20 years in business, Icon Exhibitions has built exhibition stands in probably every major UK venue, including the NEC, Earl’s Court, Olympia, Excel, Business Design Centre, Manchester Central, Harrogate, Ricoh and Stoneleigh (NAC), as well as in many venues abroad.
