Closed ATM View - TA18104/2019
Stand build for Australia’s presence at events in partnership with industry across the UK/European and US markets
Show close time for other time zones
Trade shows in the US, UK and Continental Europe are an important part of TA’s global distribution strategy, specifically as a platform for Australian industry to generate business with decision makers in these countries. Exhibition stand build companies are used for the design and delivery of the infrastructure at these events.
TA intends to approach the market via open tender to secure a single stand build company for the three markets over a three-year period. This will improve event delivery efficiencies and the quality of stand build outcomes.
The supplier selected will be responsible for the following activities:
• Brand design of the Australia stand including creative elements utilising the Philausophy (Tourism Australia’s new Brand Campaign) assets;
• Preparation and production of all stand elements;
• Delivery, construction, and dismantle of the stand at events, including manpower; and
• Storage of stand elements when not in use
