After twenty-one years, Complete Exhibitions has come of age and, after an extensive review, has rebranded itself as Compex®. Dean Gunningham, director of operations says, "This became a necessity because we are so much more than just a provider shell scheme. Following an extensive investment over the last five years in stock, staff and training, the company is now well positioned to provide our clients and the industry with a turn-key solution."
The company's foundation is firmly rooted on four pillars, namely Shell Scheme, Custom and Design Stands, Audio-Visual, and Event Infrastructure. These are complemented by an extensive stock of furniture as well as a service that provides exhibitors and event organisers with a wide range of electrical and plant hire options. The company is probably best known for the provision of shell schemes for exhibition stands, registration areas, poster walling and other conference and exhibition ('Confex') infrastructure - this is the service area in which the company has its deepest roots. Having worked extensively within the 'Confex' market, it was a natural extension of our service offering to provide an extensive audio-visual component including lighting and staging. Many clients prefer to deal with a single service provider who has a proven track record in the provision of solutions that can enhance an event.
An event is all about the experience, an engagement with all of our senses. Ultimately, the participant's experience and the client's objectives for hosting the event are the two key measures for how successful a service provider has fared. Doing the same thing over a long period of time does not build experience. How to excel as a service provider cannot be learnt from a book, it is accumulated over many years by working on different aspects of an event, by working across many different event genres, and by hosting events under challenging conditions. The ability to devise inspired and reliable solutions is what makes experience the key differentiator between service providers.
