  • Section C - Wall Graphics - Optional

    Please note: This section of the form is for graphics to be printed and installed by the stand builder, Electro Industries.

    Alternatively you are able to organize or bring your own posters/wall graphics, but will then need to install these yourself.

    In our experience, we’ve noticed that full wall graphics on a booth really helps you get across your products or story in a visual way in what is a very “noisy” visual environment.

    Click here to browse photographs of previous trade shows on the Export Solutions website.

    Costs for graphics will be USD $60 per sqm.

    Deadline for wall graphic orders is 10th December 2015.

    Deadline for artwork to be submitted is 10th January 2016.

    Graphic prices include the special preparation of walls for graphic application and/or lining the walls. This includes having painters on site who do the special preparation. If you require graphic printing on foam/forex board this will be an extra USD$5 per sqm.

    Please also provide instructions which clearly state the placement of your graphics, and label your graphics accordingly. This can be achieved either through a sketch uploaded in the relevant section below, or a text description in the 'Additional Queries/Information' box at the end of this form.
