Exhibition news – October review

This month has seen Classic all over the UK fitting both exhibitions and showrooms. This month we have worked mainly with existing clients, such as Auto trail, Aston and Fincher, Velfac and the Scolmore group to continue our support as their exhibition contractors.

October overview

Velfac and Velux

October started at Classic with Construction week, where we completed another exhibition stand for Velfac, whilst simultaneously building an exhibition for Velfac and Velux at Grand Designs Live.

Homebuilding innovation was not the only major theme talked about during Grand Designs Live. A new initiative was in place to reduce single-use plastic use at the NEC. This was implemented in order to make a push for exhibitions and events to become greener. Movements like this can see the future of exhibitions change for the better, as exhibition contractors look to reduce waste and use more eco-friendly techniques in construction.


The NEC was not the only location for a Velfac and Velux exhibition build this month. The Scottish Homebuilding and Renovating show was the next location for this stand. The team travelled up to the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, to construct this exhibition for Velfac, again producing a stunning exhibition.

The Scolmore Group

From one Scottish build to another. The Classic crew then travelled from Edinburgh to just outside of Glasgow, where we installed a showroom for the newest member of The Scolmore Group, Sangamo. This sleek looking showroom highlighted that at Classic Design and Build we are much more than just exhibition contractors. These display pods were finished to a high quality and delivered and fitted straight from our workshop.

As well as showroom displays, we have also completed exhibitions for multiple branches of The Scolmore Group at the Elex Trade Show at Sandown Racecourse. The Elex Trade show is familiar territory here at Classic as we regularly build for Click Scolmore, ESP and Click Litehouse, and this event was no exception. The Scolmore group boasted the presence of TV personality Billy Byrne, from DIY SOS, who was on hand to help out and add some stardom to the three outstanding stands.

Aston and Fincher

Continuing the theme for building existing relationships, Classic Design and Build were involved in the creation of a high-quality exhibition for Aston and Fincher at Salon international. As their exhibition contractors, we were responsible for developing their design idea into reality. Yet again we succeeded in producing a stunning display of their products, with elements now being transferred into their showroom for further use.
