BSAVA Publications
Annual Congress

Producing multi-functional exhibition stands that can be reused is becoming a specialist area for us. So when BSAVA Publications needed a stand that not only functioned as a bookshop for their highly renowned veterinary books, but could also be repeatedly used over a three year period, we knew we could help.

  • 10x12m reusable stand
  • Sales counter with payment terminals
  • Individually lit LED bookshelves
  • Soft seating area
  • Speaker/book-signing area
  • Disabled access
  • Storeroom with multiple access points
  • Lighting, power & data infrastructure
  • Under floor cabling
  • Storage & warehousing

The brief was to create a fully functioning retail unit for BSAVA to sell their books. An open, inviting space displaying over 200 titles to attract visitors to browse and read. It also needed to allow for storage and stock replenishment, as well as providing room for talks, book launches and signings – all within a 10x12m footprint.

Creativity was key, maximising the use of space and delivering a multi-purpose stand that both engaged and brilliantly displayed the company’s products; while ensuring all services: lighting, power, data and storage, were out of sight yet still accessible. We managed everything from concept through to delivery.

Our design team produced a fantastic solution that not only impressed the client, but could be easily installed, derigged and stored, to be reused next year.

After a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19 we needed a new concept at a new venue. Henson Franklyn designed, manufactured and delivered a great stand for us, with excellent support and project management throughout.
