Shell scheme is used by the event and exhibition industry as a cost effective stand solution.

The stand space produced by shell scheme is vanilla so it is important for exhibitors to stand out and distinguish themselves to guarantee visitors will take notice in busy exhibition halls and venues.

This can create a real dilemma for exhibitors, all too often you go to an exhibition and see wobbly displays that consist of an out-dated pop-up, a lonely banner stand or a couple of A1 posters lining the walls. It’s the 21st century, and time to take advantage of all available wall space in a shell scheme, with superb large format, seamless graphics!

So what are the options for shell-scheme graphics display?
