Scan wins again at Markex

Scan Display’s stand was named Runner Up in the Medium Stand category at Markex & World of Events, held at the Sandton Convention Centre from 10 to 12 June 2008. The latest win means that the exhibition and display specialist has won an award at Markex Jhb for the last five years.

This year’s stand was smaller than previous years’. However, Scan spent more per square metre and achieved a better return on its investment, drawing visitors to the stand and generating an excellent database of leads from the show.

Scan launched its new rolled carpeting at Markex, using the product on the floor and walls of its stand. The carpet comes in large rolls and is cut on site to fit the space, ensuring a superior finish to the alternative carpet tiles.

Scan extended its rolled carpeting from the stand into the exhibition hall aisles to make the stand feel bigger than it was. It also used a high roof to create a feeling of space on the stand.
