Will the exhibition fit your venue?

Our logistics team compares measurements from your temporary gallery space with the specifications of the exhibition to ensure the exhibition will fit into your temporary gallery space.

Site visit

A member of our technical team will conduct a detailed site inspection to ensure the exhibition can be installed successfully in your building.

Getting ready

At this stage texts must be produced and translated, marketing materials should be produced and we'll provide detailed specifications about the exhibition and any equipment that you'll need to provide for the installation.

Transport and installation

Our logistics manager confirms exact dates for the arrival of the exhibition, books the transport and schedules the installation team.

Exhibition installation

Your local team and our technicians work together to install the exhibition and adapt it to your venue. This can take from 8 to 14 days depending on the exhibition you are hiring.

Public opening

Your VIP and press launches generate media coverage and the exhibition opens to its first visitors.
