Comment for Modulbox Germany | 21 October 2009

Scan Display is one of South Africa’s largest exhibition, event and display companies. The company recently formed a partnership with Modulbox Germany to manufacture and market the innovative Modulbox system in Southern Africa. Scan believes the modular, portable system will be the perfect marketing vehicle for companies during the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2010.

“The Modulbox has proved extremely popular in South Africa. In the few months since we launched the concept we have already sold units to clients ranging from one of the largest cellular providers in Southern Africa to a national retail chain. Customers love the idea of a portable exhibition stand or show room. They also like the idea that it is manufactured locally, thereby allowing them to benefit from international design at a locally-manufactured price,” says Justin Hawes, MD of Scan Display.

“We have already successfully road-tested one of our Modulbox units at Coca Cola Park, one of the FIFA World Cup venues,” says Hawes. (See attached picture.) Scan will have Modulbox units available for hire during the World Cup. Scan Display has been in the exhibition and display business since 1996. It has offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Gaborone and a network of distributors throughout Southern Africa. International business currently accounts for twenty-percent of Scan’s annual turnover. In just the last couple of months, Scan has worked with high profile international clients Bayer, MAN Ferrostaal, Boehringer Ingelheim and US exhibitions company, Freeman.

In 2006, Scan became the first South African member of the International Federation of Exhibition & Event Services (IFES), the international association of exhibition services providers. Scan was also the first African member of the United States’ largest exhibition contractors’ association, Exhibit Designers and Producers Association (EDPA). Scan Display has the industry experience and local knowledge to offer European clients a comprehensive exhibition, display and design service during the FIFA World Cup 2010.
