Exhibition stand hire

More sustainable exhibiting
Hire a whole stand or individual elements

Why should you hire your next exhibition stand?

There’s a long-held belief in the exhibitions industry that sustainable stands are more expensive. However, hiring exhibition stands is a great way to bust this myth: by renting, recycling, and repurposing, your event presence becomes much more cost-effective and environmentally friendly. 

Exhibition stand hire is also great for international exhibitors. Whether travelling to the UK for a big event or heading to Europe for a show, exhibition stand hire removes stress from the process and eliminates the need to transport your exhibition stand between countries. Hire a stand from us, and you can rock up to the event with just your hand luggage.

At Motive, we’re not just exhibition stand builders

Get ready to breeze through your next exhibition with the Motive team at your side.

We’re far more than just a stand builder. Instead, we’re an extension of your marketing and events team.

You’ll be assigned a dedicated project manager to collaborate with from the initial design stage to the final installation. Every member of our team is familiar with our projects, so rest assured you’ll receive consistent and accurate information from everyone you speak to. And we treat all of our clients the same, regardless of their requirements and budget. 

For extra peace of mind, you’ll be invited to our workshop to see your exhibition stand before it’s installed at the venue, leaving you free to focus on those final bits of show prep.

We’re committed to building environmentally friendlier exhibition stands and reducing our overall carbon footprint as a business. We ensure that every aspect of our supply chain is as environmentally friendly as possible and uses sustainable, recyclable materials from verified sources. We also have a ‘zero waste to landfill’ policy, so you’ll never find elements of your stand in a skip at the end of a show.

Should I buy or hire my exhibition stand?

The main advantage of hiring a stand is that it can be easily reconfigured and customised to fit different spaces and configurations. This makes it a versatile, lightweight, easy to transport and cost-effective solution for exhibitors rather than undertaking a custom build, which is a unique and personalised display stand that is specifically designed and built to meet the specific requirements of an individual exhibitor.

How much does it cost to hire an exhibition stand?

Stand hire is an economical option if you don’t plan to exhibit regularly, are looking to try a new concept, plan to rebrand or are new to exhibiting and want to see how well it works for you before committing to your own stand.

Several factors will influence the price to hire, including:

  • Size of the space you have booked
  • The destination of your exhibition space
  • What you are looking to achieve from exhibiting
  • The product or service you are showcasing

Our experienced, friendly exhibition team will guide you through the process and all the costs. They’ll give you all the support you need to achieve a booth that looks and feels like your own while attracting your target audience and staying within your budget!

Can I hire a modular exhibition stand?

Of course! Hiring a modular exhibition stand is ideal if you need flexibility without overheads or storage issues. They are completely customisable, flexible, and adaptable. Hiring is a great option if you need to regularly change your graphics to suit the audience of another division or team within your company.

We can work with you to get a modular exhibition stand that makes an impact without starting a design and building from scratch every time.

Can I hire individual elements from you for my space-only exhibition stand?

A resounding yes! We want to give you the best value for your money. We don’t believe buying furniture that will only be used for a few days of the year makes sense, which is why we offer a hire service. You can also hire: Flexible modular exhibition stand framework; video walls; light walls; TVs, iPads, interactive screens and dongles; lighting; flooring; games; shelving; fridges/chillers; kitchen cabinets; and yes, the kitchen sink.

How do I know what my hired exhibition stand will look like?

Are you worried about whether your stand will look different from the visual you approved on paper? You don’t need to be, as we’ll build it in our workshop prior to the exhibition so you can see the stand exactly as it will look on the big day. We want you to turn up at your exhibition stand at the venue knowing what to expect, having seen it in the flesh a few weeks prior.
