Stand Design and Build

Working with PS8 has been an absolute pleasure from day one. From designing the stand through to the build and breakdown at shows, nothing has ever been a problem and their service has been impeccable. We look forward to our next show with the PS8 team.

Joe Kinch, Founder of Joe's Tea Co.

The team at PS8 are quick to interpret our ideas and bring them to life, offering good practical advice and delivering a first class stand. Having worked with PS8 for over 10 years, we are delighted to be able to utilize their services for our domestic trade shows as well as the international events.

Summer Fancy Food Show - New York

Tom Bartram, Dairy Crest

Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink

Just wanted to thank you and your team for a very smoothly run festival. It makes such a difference to the whole atmosphere of an event! Thank you once again, we had a very successful 3 days!

James Tregelles, Salcombe Dairy

A quick word to say that was an excellent show for me. Plenty of people really into their cooking and buying local. See you next year if not before

Graham Bradshaw, Cornish Sea Salt

Sandra and her team really were an amazing team to work with - nothing was too much trouble. As a first time trader we attended the 'fresh at the festival' event organised by Sandra which was invaluable in providing us with important information about the festival. This thorough introduction really helped the new traders to understand how the event would run and provided us with lots of great advice. It really was a pleasure to work with the PS8 team and hope that we will do so again in the future.

South Devon Pizza Company

ISM (Sweets & Biscuits) - Cologne

It's fair to say that the prospect of attending our first ISM as an exhibitor was somewhat daunting; thankfully, our concerns were quickly alleviated when were allocated a space within the British Pavilion and were appointed Kevin O’Shea from the PS8 team as our account manager. From here, the planning process was smooth and hassle-free. Kevin quickly helped us realise our vision of the stand, working within budget and covering ever detail from layout to panel design and furniture recommendations. Kevin also helped us successfully deliver a bespoke display element to the stand which created real impact at the show. On set-up day Kevin supported with all change requests ensuring everything was exactly as we wanted it to be. We had a great response to the stand at the show and we look forward to working with PS8 in the future.

AMY WATT, PRODUCT & MARKETING MANAGER, ROSE MARKETING UK

‘PS8 have restored my faith in exhibitions! I was nervous after a bad experience exhibiting independently but was delighted with how smoothly everything ran. From start to finish, communication was excellent and PS8 were always on hand to assist with any questions and keep everything on track. When we arrived at the exhibition on Saturday afternoon, the stand was already fully set up, ready for us to simply go in and dress with our products. Totally stress free! We felt confident and well supported at all times and I would definitely recommend working with PS8, who provided excellent value for money”.

SALLY TRIBE, STRATEGIC MARKETING MANAGER, THE LITTLE TREATS BAKERY

Thorntons exhibited at ISM 2019 as part of our International Strategy to attract new customers and continue our export growth into new territories. We worked very closely with the team at PS8 throughout the year to plan our exhibition stand, ensuring that it had both a strong design and excellent functionality. We were highly satisfied with the results of the show, we received excellent feedback from customers about the quality of our stand and we were also successful in making connections with key buyers and distributors in our target markets. I would highly recommend exhibiting on the UK Pavilion led by PS8 as an excellent way to see ROI from a key trade show.

RACHEL HOWELL, INTERNATIONAL SALES COORDINATOR, THORNTONS

The PS-8 team make things go very smoothly for us as an exhibitor at multiple trade shows per year. We have a small team so arriving at our stand to find it built and with our bespoke flooring choice is great, leaving us to get on with unpacking the pallets and finishing off our displays. They store our stand graphics for us until the next show which is so convenient and they are on hand during the show if we need anything. PS-8 can also create bespoke items helping you to stand out from the crowd at a busy show. Friendly, professional service always.

LIN MCDONALD, CHOCOLATE AND LOVE

ANUGA, Cologne

First a massive thank you from me and Frances for making Anuga run as smoothly as it did. I thought the stand was by far and away the best I've ever seen and certainly had a massive impact in the hall. All the catering and meeting room facilities were a god-send and we felt we are properly looked after. So thank you!

Paul Bendit, Folkingtons

A very well organised and executed show with excellent attendance and the potential business generated was far in excess of our expectations. A very successful show for Yew Tree Dairy. This was our first excursion to Anuga and we will take learning from it and do things bigger and better next time.

Duncan Carrick, Yew Tree Dairy

Thank you to team PS8 for all your support at Anuga. We had a great show, trade was good and so was the atmosphere.

Tim Harrap - Lye Cross Farm

Being on the UK pavilion gave us the opportunity to showcase our unique health and wellness range to a wider European (and beyond) markets and crucially allowed us to connect and network with desired German wholesalers and have critical face to face meetings with key players. It also allowed us to get some insights in the German market and network in the industry.

"We have been doing well with exports on the back of clients we have been picking up at tradeshows.
In fact we are doing so well we have been getting lots of press coverage including TV!

Japan in particular is going to be a really good market for us so Foodex really paid off as it's where we found our distributor"
