Why ME are breaking the Mould

Historically there has been a place within Exhibitions & live events for modular Displays that has come with a certain amount of stigma attached.

The general idea is that “nice” looking smaller displays can be created using various systems BUT they aren’t very structurally sound, you can see the framework and they are “like a big meccano kit”

While some generations may see the comparison to a meccano kit being a compliment we understand from experience that this perceived perception of modular exhibition stands could be a driver not to delve any further into its benefits.

“There are two kinds of people in the world, my friend” – or in our case two different systems.

Before we look at how we can help we need to further understand the bigger picture of both Bespoke Exhibition stand and modular exhibition stands.

Bespoke Exhibition Stands


  • Handcrafted to your exact requirements
  • Excellent Finish
  • Integration of various Materials
  • Seamless
  • Limitless possibilities


  • Cost
  • Storage fees
  • Additional charges
  • Difference in graphics colours
  • Finish


  • Stand not finished on time
  • Paint splashes


Modular Exhibition Stands


  • Eco Friendly
  • Reusable
  • Scalable
  • Cost saving in comparison to bespoke.
  • No storage costs


  • Visible frames
  • Limited design capabilities


  • Scratched or damaged components
  • Missing sections or components


There is absolutely an industry need for a reusable system that ticks the boxes for both options and as a business we were fortunate enough to discover a system that we believe will change the industry of Live events and exhibition stand design & build for the better.

BeMatrix is a lightweight reusable solid aluminium core that can be covered using either Foamex which is a semi rigid recyclable PVC or fabric. This means our team can truly bridge the gap between modular and bespoke exhibition stand designs.

Mercer Exhibitions benefit from an in-house joinery workshop and expertise to further blend both elements successfully.
