Following on from our success at the Retail Design Expo last week, we are now gearing up for the VM and Display Show 2016 – also in London – at the Business Design Centre on the 20th and 21st April. This years VM and Display Show describes itself as “the most spell binding, eye-grabbing and hair raising visual merchandising and display show on earth” – and with a promise like that how can we not be excited about this event?
“We are really looking forward to exhibiting again this year at the VM and Display show. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with existing and new clients in the fun and friendly surroundings of the Business Design Centre. It’s also an opportunity to discuss collaborations with manufacturers so that we can work together on innovative designs and build projects.”
Like the Retail Design Expo, the VM and Display Show is also free to attend. Feature areas at thisyear’s show include the Underground Network, Designer Network, Graduate Challenge (where visual merchandising students from various universities compete to win work experience at Harrods) and Graduate Showcase. Alongside this there will be more traditional displays of VM and Display equipment and inspiration, including mannequins,props, fabrics, hangers, Christmas decorations, point of sale equipment, design, print, graphics, lighting and lifestyle ideas and acrylics.
Unlike the Retail Design Expo, the VM and Design Show has been running for a very long time – in fact it is the longest running showcase of its kind for the VM industry. This year marks the 26th consecutive event and we are more than excited to be taking our place in the lineup at this extraordinary and inspiring show.
Along with showing and telling people what Barber can do, we look forward to networking at the event and picking up lots of inspiration from other exhibitors. The show provides a unique opportunity to meet like-minded industry experts who – like Barber – make retail store environments and displays a reality, from concept to installation. Visitors to our stand can see lots of examples of our most recent and award-winning work and we will be happy to discuss any visual merchandising and display requirements with our team of experts on hand to ensure that potential customers are seeing the best of what Barber Design have to offer.
The VM and Display Show is the only UK exhibition dedicated specifically to VM and Displays and we had a fantastic time at last year’s event, which was so popular that it was extended into the galleries at the Business Design Centre. This year the organisers are expecting even more interest, predicting record visitor and exhibitor numbers, with many countries from across the world represented and even more stand space allocated.
We’d love to see you at the show – you can sign up here for free: www.vmanddisplayshow.com/#!registration/mainPage – and make sure you come and find us on stand H7-8 to see what Barber Design can do for your business.
