Exhibition Stand Design Awards

Helping visitors find the technologies they require from the 1,700+ IBC exhibitors is a challenge. We play our part in the way we lay out the halls by theme, and the exhibitors play their part by designing stands which guide the visitor and showcase their products.

A dedicated team of judges tour the entire exhibition, looking carefully at every stand and choosing those which they regard as outstanding in terms of accessibility, clarity and image. There are three IBC Exhibition Design Awards: for the Most Imaginative Use of Shell Scheme Space, and for the Best Smaller and Larger Free-Design Stands.

Most Imaginative Use of Shell Scheme Space

Most Imaginative Use of Shell Scheme Space

Pliant - Stand 11.A02

This stand takes the use of shell scheme to a new level with creative use of space, excellent lighting and fantastic graphics presenting a chic effect. A most attractive and inviting stand that no other stand got close to achieving.

Best Smaller Free Design

Best Smaller Free Design

Ooyala - Stand 14.D20

An original design in a pavilion where no hanging is possible from the ceilings. This design incorporates the use of wood and its fun, playful visuals reflect an energetic and young minded business.

Best Larger Free Design

Best Larger Free Design

Cisco - Stand 1.A71

This is an open and inviting stand, with plenty of space on two levels. A stunning and fresh approach.
