5 Benefits Of Using A Local Exhibition Stand Design & Build Company

CannesExpo provides a full service exhibition stand design, construction and assembly of semi-custom stands for a fixed price of €345 per square meter all inclusive (this means that you don’t have to worry about a thing. We specialise in small stands in our own area and have no interest in the big projects as we believe there are enough big boys out there that do a great job. But they do not show enough love to smaller space only exhibitors. We aim at filling the gap between shell-scheme and full custom build without falling back to a modular system.  So if you are planning to exhibit with a 6m2 to 27m2 space only stand, contact us for a bespoke solution for €345 per m2 all inclusive.  We can help.


Simply, picking a design and build company that is near the venue will reduce the amount of miles your exhibition stand has to travel. In addition to reducing your carbon footprint there are also a number of great advantages in knowing the city of the exhibition venue. For example, the best hotels located near the venue, where to eat out, where to get last-minutes supplies, how to get emergency graphics printed, and much more.

Ideally situated just outside Cannes, we are less than 30 minutes away from Cannes and less than an hour from Nice and Monaco. We regularly manage projects at all the major venues across the French Riviera, which means that we have specialist knowledge of the venues in this area and very likely recent experience about exhibiting there. Having people on the ground who can give you answers to all the questions you have about a venue or city you’ve never exhibited at before is invaluable.


You should strive to select an exhibition partner that has a multilingual team. While English remains one of the most widely spoken languages in Europe, in France it is really appreciated if you speak French. It helps you a lot for getting things done. At CannesExpo, we understand the need to be able to communicate with everyone in the supply chain when it comes to delivering a project. At CannesExpo, we speak English, French, and Dutch, so we can communicate easily with clients, organisers and on-site suppliers. This ensures that everything will be handled smoothly and on time.


When exhibiting in France it is important to adhere to the often strict health and safety laws that apply to building a temporary structure. It is important to have an understanding of the etiquette and culture of the event organisers and key suppliers. We have many years of experience building to these standards, and we keep up-to-date with new legislation. We also have many international clients who rely on us to ensure that any collateral sent from their home country is processed in the correct way to guarantee a speedy transit through customs and import processes.


In addition to your carbon footprint and managing logistics it is a much more cost-effective solution to use a local contractor to exhibit in Cannes, Nice or Monaco to reduce transportation/shipping costs. It is important to find a partner that is close to the venues to decrease travel and labour costs. It just saves a lot of money if your contractor doesn’t need to book, flights, hotels etc.


Sometimes it’s just not cost-effective or to time consuming  to print your marketing materials and ship them to the South of France. In a lot of cases it’s just simpler to produce them locally. CannesExpo offers a print service for brochures, business cards, but also for banner displays, beach Flags , vinyls and foam board. We can offer emergency print service if needed and are able to deliver directly to your stand in Cannes, Nice & Monaco. 


Whether you are already exhibiting in Cannes, Nice or Monaco or looking to do so for the first time, it is essential that you engage the services of a local stand design and build team in order to ensure the optimal return on your investment.
