University of Birmingham: Big Bang Fair 2015

Exhibition Stand Design and Build


 

Context
The University of Birmingham’s college of Engineering and Physical Sciences’ attended the Big Bang Fair 2015. They wanted a purpose built exhibition stand to attract young people (age 7 – 18) to experience the train crash test simulator and then to consider one of the Universities undergraduate courses, which include rail related subjects. The Big Bang Fair, now in its fifth year, attracts tens-of-thousands of teenagers considering their career options.
Solution
The University knew that they would be using their train crash test ramp as a central focal point to the stand. They required a high quality backdrop to their stand. WillB provided the University with three x 3D visualisation design options for them to consider. We then worked over a two month period to help develop the stand, construct it and install it two days before the show opened. Once the show was over, we managed the breakdown of the stand as well as the delivery back to the University.
Result
The client were delighted with the fit and the finish of the 3x5m stand. We’ve since discussed options to modify the stand for use at different events. Due to the flexibility of the stand’s construction materials, the client is able to change the artwork, or even the shape of the stand without huge costs. This puts them in a position where the stand can last them twenty years, even if they go through an entire re-brand themselves.

Back to Work

“WillB has been an absolute joy to work with. He was consistently professional, proactive and offered creative input in the overall look and feel of the Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education stand. He even went above and beyond by helping to bring back material to the University after the Big Bang Fair event had ended. I would highly recommend WillB! I look forward to working with him in the near future.”
