This week in the Barber office we are making the final preparations for our stand at the 2016 VM and Display Show, which takes place in the Business Design Centre in London next Wednesday and Thursday (20th and 21st April).
The show is an opportunity for us to showcase some of our latest projects including our series of retail store designs for Neal’s Yard Remedies – plus our recent work with Jigsaw, SimplyBe, Nuance and the Discovery Channel – to name but a few. Visitors to the Barber Design stand can expect a warm welcome and a knowledgeable discussion with our team of experts, who will be happy to talk about any aspect of retail design and branding with you – from the use of retail technology to enhance customer journeys to the best way to present products in a travel retail environment.
We will also be using our time at the show to take in some of the latest advances in visual merchandising, display and retail design trends and seeking inspiration from the vast array of displays and stands from all over the globe. The VM & Display Show is the only UK exhibition dedicated solely to the creative aspect of the retail industry – bringing together everything from mannequins, print and props to POP, lighting and fabrics all under one roof across two days.
Due to popular demand, last year’s show was extended into the galleries at the Business Design Centre and this year’s show is also set to smash their existing attendance records with increased visitor and exhibitors expected next week. The VM and Window Show is an international event – with many different countries from across the world represented – it is also attended by global businesses looking for innovation and inspiration.
Here at Barber we are experienced at working with international clients – and both small independent stores and larger chains. Our store designs have been implemented in shopping malls across the world – from Hong Kong to Dubai. Last year we were nominated for a total of six industry awards and we won the prestigious ‘best large store format’ at the Retail Week Interior Awards for our retail design work on the Triathlon Shop in Bristol.
There are just six days left if you want to register for the show – you can sign up here for free: www.vmanddisplayshow.com/#!registration/mainPage – come and find Barber Design on stand H7-8 to see what we can do for your business.
