We’re Motive, an expert team of exhibition stand designers and builders
Our friendly team of exhibition specialists has decades of experience designing, project managing, building and installing show-stopping exhibition stands that wow our customers’ audience (and their competitors!).
From custom stands to modular designs, space-only exhibition stands to shell schemes, our exhibition stand design and build team has done it all. We’ve put working kitchens on stands; we’ve built spaces around full-size vehicles; we’ve even designed huge double-decker exhibition stands. All while keeping our customers’ best interests at heart and working to their requirements.
While we’re based in Cambridgeshire, we work across the UK and Europe and have worked at pretty much every major exhibition venue you can imagine.
Tell me more about Motive!
How do you design such engaging exhibition stands?
Good question. We put our clients first, and while we obviously give advice and guidance, their word is final. No pushy sales tactics, no trying to get them to spend more than what’s needed. So we know that what we produce is what they want.
We’ve also got an incredibly enthusiastic team who take real pride in their work and are meticulous in their planning. Our designers are up-to-date with all the latest industry trends and design technology, and they know all the tips and tricks of the trade.
We’re new to all of this – will you help me plan my company’s exhibition?
Of course! We’re more than just an exhibition stand builder. Think of us as an extension of your events team. We’re expert project managers; we’ll make sure that you don’t just have an incredible exhibition stand but are well-prepped for the show, too. And, if you need us to, we can help you look at your annual show calendar and longer-term exhibition plans.
“ attention to detail is crucial“
“For our client, attention to detail is crucial. He wanted samples of all the materials used before making a final decision, which Motive happily facilitated. They wanted to get it right as much as we did, and in the end, our client said it was the best stand they’d ever had.

This all sounds great – do you do everything in-house?
Yes. The project management, the design, the build, and the on-site management during events – our team does everything, so we have total control over the results.
You’re building an exhibition stand for our competitor; will you build ours, too?
Yes, of course. It’s not rare that we work with more than one client at the same event. We’re excellent at planning – and multi-tasking – and we guarantee that everyone gets the same level of service, whether you’ve got a small shell scheme stand or a double-decker whopper.
Is there anything you don’t do?
We don’t design or use roller banners, banner stands, pop-up stands, or tabletop stands. It’s not that they don’t work; it’s just that we like to come up with bespoke designs that meet your brand’s objectives.
Our budget isn’t huge. Can we still work with you?
There’s a stand for every budget, we promise. No matter how much money you have to spend, we’ll work with you to design an exhibition stand which maximises every penny. We can discuss hiring different elements to keep the cost down, and we have plenty of design options available. Rest assured – we’ll stick to your budget like glue. No hidden fees or expenses here! If you want to know more about exhibiting on a budget, you’ll find loads of helpful advice in our blog.
Wait – we hire from you, too?
Yep – in fact, we encourage it. Hiring part – or all – of your stand is a cost-effective and sustainable way to exhibit. We’ll still combine the hired components with bespoke designs to make your exhibition stand fit with your brand guidelines. Like we said, we know all the tips and tricks!
If we asked your customers about you, what would they say?
They’d tell you our sense of humour is a bit left-field (putting it kindly), but that we put their needs first, we offer incredible customer service, we leave no stone unturned, and – of course – that we design immersive exhibition stands to fit every budget.
