The Power of Testimonials


Many people these days have reams and reams of written testimonials on their websites, I always wonder whether the author of the testimonials have actually written the words or if they are enhanced by the company themselves.

I believe that testimonials are important though, they give you a level of pedigree and show that the work you have completed in the past the client was happy with. This then builds a level of trust with any new prospective clients that they are safe in your hands.

Along with our reams!! of good written testimonials we decided to see if we could get some of these clients on camera talking about how happy they were with the quality of our work along with our great service.

The beauty of a video testimonial is there is no doubt the person in question actually made the statements about your business, as they are there on screen for all to see.

We recently did a few stands at the Square Meal show in London, so we took a camera to the day of the show to see if we could grab our clients on camera expressing how happy they were with the stands we produced.

Below is an example of how pleased One of our clients was with their stand...

The IET - Re-configured
The IET Stand
Into the second season for IET Venues and this time their stand space was 5m x 4m open on 3 sides. We took their previous ‘Claw Stand’ and re-configured it to fit their new space at this year’s Square Meal Show.
The theme for the stand was ‘environmental’ all the staff took enquiries on iPads, meaning the stand was paperless. The back wall held a total of 4 screens all with die cut screen surrounds fixed to their fronts. We used our modular flooring system covered with an artificial grass. A 'Big Brother' style chair was introduced onto the stand with an iPad Caricaturist drawing visitors that ventured onto the stand.
Please click here to see a movie of how the build took shape.

Being Modular is a must...

As Paul McCartney once said “in this ever changing world in which we live in” having a exhibition stand that can fit into a multitude of spaces in absolute necessity for any company with a busy event schedule.

Paul McCartney also once said “I am the walrus, I am the eggman” so maybe he’s not the best person to quote from, however, choosing an adaptable, modular exhibition system is a must, as it will allow you to book any size space at any show and still be able to take your system and make it fit with no fuss. 

The strap line for our modular system Versaform is “Adapt to your environment” which is exactly what the Versaform system allows you do to. It’s ground breaking design means the user can bend and flex every single panel allowing you to create an infinitive amount of shapes. 

The system is totally modular allowing the user to take all or just parts of the stand to various shows.  There are also a variety of accessories with the system allowing you to add large screens, tables, literature racks, ipad holders and full shelving systems.

Guardian Display can demonstrate this system at your offices or you are welcome to visit our new showroom in Leigh On Sea Essex.

When considering buying the next Exhibition stand for your event or show, ask yourself one thing “how flexible is this stand"?

Essex Wildlife Trust charity Golf Day

Essex Wildlife Trust charity Golf Day      

We were invited to attend this year’s Essex Wildlife Trust charity golf day, which was being held at The Warren Golf Club. The course itself is a lovely peaceful place with a lot of undulating woodland making some of the holes very tough on the legs. One of which aptly named "Cardiac Hill" felt more like you were trying to climb mount Killamanjaro...

The event was very well attended with over 70 competitors taking part. The day started with Bacon Rolls and coffee and we teamed up with our friends at Lemon Fencing then set off out for the first 18 holes.

After the golf we were treated to a fantastic 3 course meal with a charity auction to follow. After some furious bidding for some great lots ranging from a round of golf at a PGA standard course, to a dolls house. Everyone then moved into the bar to watch the fairly drab England v Ukraine football match.

The day was a resounding success in raising money for what is a very important charity. The aim of the Essex wildlife trust is to protect wildlife for the future. It is supported financially by members, local businesses and grant making organisations.

We took the opportunity to sponsor the 18th hole and used one of our pop up Horizontal A frames on the tee for some Guardian Display brand awareness . Our lightweight pop up A frames are perfect for golf days to create instant some instant branding, they are lightweight and easy to put up and take down.

We produced and installed 2 of our Versaform stands at this year’s Tradetech show for Pershing and Broker Credit Services.
After taking a brief from Pershing we provided a full demonstration of our Versaform system at the client’s offices in London, we went away and produced accurate floor plans to make best use of there 6m x 2m stand space. We worked closely with the client to accommodate all of their requirements on the stand, before developing 3d visuals.
After pre-build at our facility in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, we installed a raised flooring system and sweeping graphic back wall, with two pods to run lap top presentations through 27inch LED screens. A fully manned juice bar was also added to complete the stand.

We help Brewin Dolphin celebrate 250 years of business...

We were invited to Brewin Dolphin’s head office in London to present new display solutions, to support an update of stock display kit of premium Zap pull up roller banner stands; sail banners and pop up A-Frames. The client was impressed with the flexibility of our Versaform modular exhibition stand and how the system would be a great benefit, when size of space is usually unknown from one event to the next. Both the Versaform and Zap D3 exhibition stands were finished with our unique premium plus graphic panels, for exceptional image sharpness.
The IET Venues ‘Claw Stand’ makes a real impact at Confex 2012...

What Our Clients Say

Really pleased – Cannot thank you enough for turning these around so quickly for us!
– Cubo / Douwe Egberts

Just to let you know we have received the banners and all looks great - thank you!
– Farm Africa

The banners were used for a variety of purposes to clearly define areas, as features for photos & football displays and also as a point of reference to promote the Essex FA as an organisation to visiting teams at the event.
The banners have already been tested in the wet weather last weekend at our Girls Player Development Centre trials and still looked great in the downpours!
