THE VAPER EXPO 2017

NEC BIRMINGHAM

THE BRIEF

The Vaper Expo UK is the largest vaping event in Europe and is widely considered to be the must-attend expo for UK and International manufacturers, suppliers and distributors. Having quadrupled in size, numbers of exhibitors and visitor attendance over the last two years, we were once tasked to provide truss, lighting, star cloth, sound and staging to the expos biggest ever show. 

THE EXECUTION

We worked closely with the Vaper Expo team to realise their creative vision, delivering a striking exhibition entrance and main stage, as well as kitting out the VIP lounge, the Vape Escape bar and a casino area.

Provided with a visual from our client, we brought their idea for a dramatic exhibition entrance to life, creating a complex truss structure that incorporated an impressive entrance tunnel and a stage for the show openings. To complete the look, we installed moving lights to create sweeping beams across the space, a star cloth ceiling stretching throughout the tunnel and pyrotechnics to ensure each day of the public expo started with a bang.

With the main stage area hosting amazing entertainment throughout the expo, we created an in-the-round experience using a two circular truss structures. With the flown truss circle hung at a 16° angle, the unique stage set up created a striking focal point, drawing attention towards the stage.

To complete the impressive set-up, we also supplied lighting, sound and staging.
