Amadeus at The NEC

ConferenceExpo from Nimlok

Conference Expo is an innovative, prescribed stand package for conferences with 5-100 exhibiting sponsors. It’s the dream solution helping conference organisers run an event without the Op's headache and delivering a superior display solution to boring shell scheme or the usual pop ups and banners.

Our high level of customer service is illustrated at the Spicers Business Experience 2013:

“Conference Expo surpassed our original expectations as it provided us a new, cost-effective solution. An event which has taken us six months to organise in previous years was successfully delivered in less than three months. The Conference Expo team were on hand 24/7 and provided advice and technical expertise for me and my exhibitors throughout the entire process.”


For the BP AGM at the Festival Hall in London, Gallowglass co-ordinated crew levels, truck schedules, and resource planning, leading to a faster build and de-rig then any BP event of similar size.


Gallowglass streamlined the security clearance process for their client and the Metropolitan Police, as well as providing front of house duties supporting registration, human signage and Q&A in the auditorium.

With over 700 delegates and a smattering of protestors it was never going to be an easy job, but with nearly 200 Gallowglass crew covering 1700 man-hours the event was hailed as an overwhelming success.
