You may wish to include lights, branding banners and graphics suspended from the venue roof as part of your stand – or hold ground-level equipment in place. For this, you'll need to install event rigging. Installing rigging is a time-consuming job calling for specialist skills and equipment, and it has to be completed in compliance with exhibition and venue regulations. The best option is to have it done for you by our in-house rigging team, with it all in place for you ready for your stand build.
