Exhibition Audio Visual Hire for Exhibition Organisers

We help exhibition organisers with all aspects of the technical infrastructure for their exhibition. From sound, lighting, staging and screens in the presentation areas to table dressings and furniture in the bar and networking areas. We take all of the hassle away from you by liaising directly with your presenters, exhibitors and sponsors.

Arranging the audio visual requirements for your exhibitors couldn't be easier. Just send them a link to our online ordering system that will be set up specifically for your exhibition. 

Exhibition Audio Visual Hire for Exhibitors

If you are exhibiting at an exhibition in the UK it's likely that the exhibition organiser or venue will have provided you contact details for their preferred audio visual contractor for the show. However, it's unlikely that they will be offering you the most competitive price so it's always worth asking for a quote from a second supplier. That's where we can help.

Whether you need a simple plasma screen or a complex audio visual installation on your exhibition stands just let us know. We will provide you with a competitive, no-obligation quote and if you choose to work with us one of our helpful technicians will deliver and setup the equipment to ensure that everything runs smoothly. 

Exhibition Stand Design & Construction

We design and build exhibition stands in house. We have created simple designs comprising a high impact printed backdrop and lighting, 3-dimensional stands and large-scale exhibition stands that are more like mini retail stores in the middle of an exhibition. If you have any exhibition stands requirements, we would love to put forward a proposal for your next show.

Case Study: Sport Expo Manchester

Following a competitive tender process, Stagetex Audio Visual Manchester was appointed as the AV partner for the Sportex festival and exhibition held at Event City Manchester over 2 days.

In addition to 7 breakout areas in which Stagetex provided PA system with wireless microphones, plasma screens and AV technicians we were also responsible for delivery all technical production, staging audio visual hire in the main arena. This included a design and specification of large staging, lighting, sound and audio visual systems.

Staging & Draping

Body building competitions took place in the main venue and culminated in an awards presentation on the final evening. Stagetex supplied a 120 square metre stage with additional risers to create a “podium” in the centre.

A black starcloth formed the backdrop to the stage with additional draping supplied to create wings, a holding area and a changing area in what would have otherwise been a completely open space.

Audio Visual

The main area required a large audio visual system including four cameras and four computers running videos and slides. These were all mixed onto two 14ft rear projection screens giving a clear view of the event for the spectators and highly visible branding for the sponsors and partners.


Working in large event spaces like Event City Manchester create unique challenges in audio system design. It is key to direct the sound only towards the audience to maximise the clarity – particularly when vocal clarity is of high importance. Stagetex deployed a L’ACOUSTICS line array for the event which delivered well for both speech and high-impact music stings.

In addition to the main arena system, Stagetex supplied a number of smaller sound systems around the venue for a total of 7 demonstration and exhibition areas.


Lighting is exceptionally important for exhibitions and demonstrations of this type and a total of 60 lights were installed in the main arena to ensure that the stage was brightly and evenly lit from all angles. Additional effects lights were supplied to create excitement during the awards presentations. Stagetex supplied a large quantity of Prolyte H30V truss for rigging.

Technical Support

Throughout the build-up to the event and on-site, a team of almost 20 technicians were overseen by Stagetex Production Manager Tom Edwards who co-ordinated all of the deliveries, schedules, designs and safety ensuring a smooth running event.

Case Study: Citroen Launch Birmingham

Stagetex designed and supplied a stage set, audio visual equipment, draping and on-site technical support for this 2-week event series held in a warehouse near Birmingham. 



With this series of events being held in a large, empty warehouse near Birmingham, the first task was to create a “building inside a building”. This required our team to design and construct a temporary room large enough to house the stage set, vehicles and presentations from black drape. This was supplied from our own stock of Prolyte H30V truss and a substantial quantity of black drape!

Stage Set & Reveal

The stage set, incorporating a giant HD projection screen and branding, formed the backdrop to the event. The new Citroen C4 Cactus was revealed afresh for each audience to a high impact sound track, moving light effects and finally the removal of a silk drape that can been covering the car.


Following the reveal, the lights went down for the video presentation on the cinema-style HD screen. This was projected onto using two 5,000 lumen HD projectors from the back of the temporary room.

Audio Visual Technicians

In addition to the team who set up and derigged the audio visual equipment, draping and staging, Stagetex supplied an on-site team of technicians for the two weeks during which the launch events were run ensuring every cue was delivered perfectly!
