Modular Retail Box

Why Buy Your Modular Retail Box from Us?

The modular retail box works just as well in a shopping centre as it does at exhibitions. As such, you can purchase a modular retail box for temporary displays or permanent showcasing of products in a store or in a shopping mall.

Why Go with the Modular Option?

Modular simply means that you can add onto or take away from the retail box as needed. This means more flexibility when it comes to design, without having to create a custom-designed retail box. You will choose the unit’s size, layout, and display design according to your particular space, purpose, location, and budget requirements.

A quick setup, the easy addition of sections, and technology embedding options make the modular retail box a superb option for the smaller exhibitor and the larger retailer, as well as event organisers.

Display Equipment For Trade Shows And Other Events

As the popularity of exhibitions and trade shows increases in South Africa and companies realise that these events represent some of the best opportunities to attract a wider clientele for both the retailing and distribution of their goods so the variety of display equipment that is used by those taking a show stand has increased.

The display equipment that can be supplied by a specialist display equipment manufacturer today means that there are display solutions for every company not matter what its size. Small start ups can afford basic shell schemes to give their presence at a trade show or exhibition some gravitas and the wide variety of other, more advanced display equipment means that companies that want to maximise their return on investment for their participation in the exhibition or trade show can find ways to make their stands extremely eye catching and attractive.

Many of the methods that can be employed to make sure that a stand is as attractive to passing foot traffic as possible need not cost the Earth. There are a variety of different flags and banners for instance that can be designed and printed extremely cheaply and new printing methods and the technologies used in the manufacture of these flags and banners means that they are more eye catching than has traditionally been the case. These banners and flags are extremely easy to erect and take up very little space when being transported. The turnaround time for the manufacture of this type of display equipment is also extremely quick.

modulboxThe Amazing Modul-Box

As the science of exhibition display equipment becomes more advanced every now and then a breakthrough occurs which changes the way in which companies and organisations prepare for and take part in exhibitions and trade shows. One of these breakthroughs is the amazing Modul-box. In essence the Modul-box is a trade show stand that is entirely self contained and when erected allows for the full functionality of the most advanced trade and exhibition show stands to be employed in order to increase sales leads.

The Modul-box is both easy to transport and can be branded to suit the requirements of almost any business. With the Modul-box every business has the opportunity to demonstrate and showcase their products and services without the stress and strain that used to be part and parcel of erecting many of the older shell and modular display equipment.

The Easy To Use Shopping Kiosk

When it comes to the retail arena display units have been the same for years. Developments in new materials have made the shopping kiosk easier to erect, lighter and more visually attractive. The newest types of shopping kiosk have taken these developments to a whole new level.

With bold modern design that not only makes the shopping kiosk into an invaluable tool for the display of products, but also promotes the interactivity and sense of excitement that is today required to turn heads and make sales. These newest shopping kiosk designs have security features that prevent theft of product and are the perfect synthesis between form and function, as well as epitomising the new styles that characterise display equipment of the 21st century.

Scan Display’s Modulbox featured at MSP Developments charity golf day

Scan Display sponsored the use of its unique event-in-a-box product, the Modulbox, at the recent MSP Developments ‘Play to Give’ Charity golf day.

The Modulbox is a versatile event platform; folded away it forms a mobile cube, and opened out it provides a shell structure that can be furnished according to the requirements of the event. In addition, the panels of the Modulbox provide an ideal surface for highly visible branding, and can be positioned in a variety of combinations, allowing one to easily change the layout design.

MSP Developments chose Lydia House, a home for abandoned children in Somerset West, to benefit from their fundraising efforts. The money raised will be used to build them a much needed larger home.

Over 70 companies and many local celebrities were present on the day – including big names such as Kerry McGregor, Rob Louw, Lieschen Botes, Gerrie Scheepers, Hottie Louw, Werner Greeff and many more. The Modulbox featured a lounge area for the guests to relax in, with an MSP Developments information desk.

The generosity of the companies and guests attending helped MSP Developments to raise R80 000, and many companies also pledged their support towards the building process.

A special mention must be made of co-sponsors Itec Cape Town, Radio Tygerberg, Mostert & Bosman Attorneys and C2M Chartered Accountants, who made the day possible.

“This year was a great success,” says Sarah Bateman, the MSP Developments Public Relations Officer. “Lydia and all the children were present at the event and it was amazing to see how everyone’s hearts melted the moment they saw the beautiful children.”

“MSP Developments are greatly appreciative of all the sponsors and the support from all of the great people involved. We cannot wait to get the ball rolling for the next ‘Play to Give’ charity golf day.”

Modulbox – conference coffee stand

Scan Display sponsored the use of a Modulbox at Ellis Park for one of their conferences in July, from which to serve coffee and popcorn to the conference delegates.

Oppikoppi music festival

The 16th OppiKoppi music festival took place on the 6-8 August, 2010.

Situated just outside Northam, in the Limpopo province of South Africa, the venue is essentially untamed bushveld and a hill. In fact, the name of the festival is an abbreviation of the Afrikaans phrase “op die koppie”, which literally means “on the hill”.

Thorn trees, red dust and the beautiful scenery of similar thorn tree-covered hills is the setting for this rugged festival, which is clearly not for the faint-hearted.

Scan Display recognised that the Modulbox was therefore the ideal solution for a durable and comfortable smoking lounge at Oppikoppi, for their client Dunhill.

Scan Display to showcase European innovation at Markex

Exhibitions, events and display specialist, Scan Display, will showcase European innovation in the form of a Modulbox at SA’s premier marketing and promotions trade exhibition, Markex Jhb 2010. The Modulbox was designed in Germany by Mo Systeme, and Scan has the exclusive rights to produce this product in South Africa.

The Modulbox has the typical German traits of intelligent design. For example, the closed box forms a 2.45m cube, making it easy to transport. The doors and floor open up or slide out in a variety of set-up combinations to fulfil different requirements, and the process is quick and simple. Additionally, the multiple doors provide a large surface area which lends itself to highly visible branding.

The result is a stand-in-a-box exhibition, retail and event solution. It is ideal for outdoor promotions or events, road-shows, exhibitions with limited set-up and break-down times – and more.

Justin Hawes, MD of Scan Display, says: “The Modulbox is very versatile and it was used extensively during the World Cup to create information booths and ticketing kiosks.”

The Modulbox will appear in an urban European scene to enforce the message that it is a product of first class European design, as well as to show it in a functional context.

Other exciting surprises in keeping with the theme have been planned for Markex, to ensure Scan’s stand inspires visitors to the show.

Markex will run from the 24 to 27 of August, at Sandton Convention Centre. You will find the Scan Display stand in Hall 2, stand C27.

Scan Display’s mobile exhibition system, the Modulbox, recently proved its outdoor versatility and stability when it withstood Cape Town’s notorious gale force Southwester on Camps Bay beach. This promotion was part of an extensive national roadshow which saw the Modulbox placed in various locations around Durban, Plettenburg Bay, St Francis Bay, and Knynsa.

Justin Hawes, MD of Scan Display adds, “Another characteristic of the Modulbox which impressed the client was re-usability of the box. The same customised box was used in seven locations in Cape Town and in several other cities making it a very cost-effective way to take a brand to a wide variety of audiences across a broad geographical area.”

The Modulbox is a modular, portable ‘stand in a box’ which is custom designed to a client’s specifications. Scan Display, in partnership with Modulbox Germany, manufactures this innovative system locally. This allows Scan to keep the price down while clients still benefit from cutting-edge German design.

“This promotion once again demonstrated the Modulbox’s superiority over other outdoor promotional spaces such as gazebos and shelters, when the stand stood true and proud in the face of winds of up to 50km per hour. It also demonstrated the Modulbox’s quick-set up time, versatility and re-usability,” concludes Hawes.
