Project lead time – is there such a thing as an ‘ideal world’?

We like to take a full brief and ask questions to ensure we go back with a proposal that is on point.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as an ideal world!

Creative Forum works on projects months and sometimes just weeks in advance.  Any project undertaken is given 100% of our time - no matter how short the turnaround.  We look after every aspect imaginable from the exhibitor manual, ordering catering, dealing with the show organisers, printing of marketing material and managing promotional staff.

The recent case studies below show our strengths under severe timescale pressure and still delivering impressive stands and on budget:

USA Company exhibiting in the UK

We have worked in the USA for a number of years including Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and California.  We work with contractors who we trust to deliver multiple stands at excellent quality. 
Receiving a call from our contractor asking us to assist with their US client at a UK show filled us with excitement knowing that we could return the favour and produce a fantastic exhibition stand along with the Great British service we provide internationally.  When we found out we had three weeks until the first day of the show it was all hands on deck!  The end result was a stunning looking stand delivered on time, on budget and most importantly, with high praise from our client.  In fact, they were delighted with the event management service Creative Forum provided that they have already booked us for another event in London later on in the year – with an improved lead time!

UK Company at ‘The Gadget Show Live’

A client of our sister company Tradefair contacted us after booking a last minute 100sqm space at The Gadget Show Live to launch their product and brand.  They were looking for an innovative design and we needed to create an exhibition stand that catered to the consumer market and also showcased our client’s innovative product.  With less than four weeks to the show, we had our work cut out but our designers, project managers and construction team took it in their stride and the end result was truly magnificent!

Not only did our client’s stand look amazing, it was constantly busy and they really created a buzz on social media by inviting people on to their stand.

Above are just two examples of how Creative Forum has managed quick turnaround projects to a high quality.  In an ideal world, we would love to receive your brief several months before your event, but we know that this is not always a realistic request and these examples highlight that we can work to any time scale given to us!
