Exhibition stands

Scan Display’s competitive advantage lies in its ability to provide a range of exhibition stand options including custom, portable and modular.

  • Custom stands
    Scan Display designs and builds exhibition stands for clients’ unique requirements. We manage the project from brief and design through to the build by our production team.
  • Portable stands
    The Metro range is a portable display system which Scan Display supplies as a rental or an outright purchase. We are the sole distributor of this product in Africa. The Metro’s aluminium structure guarantees durability and it comes with a carry bag on wheels for easy transportation.
    The Folding System is a cost-effective solution for quick and easy displays. It can also be used to create a temporary wall. It is lightweight, can be set up by a single person, and comes in six and eight panel options.
    The Expo stand is portable and re-useable and comes in a small carry case. It is modular and can be added to or reduced – one can start with a small stand and add extra frames to create a medium or large stand, making it a good long-term investment. There are different frame options (for creating curves, wave structures and corners) and showcase options.
  • The Modulbox is manufactured by Scan Display under license to Mo Systeme in Germany. It can be set up quickly both in indoor and outdoor settings. The unit’s canopies flap upwards, creating space for branding. It is lockable, ensuring security during your event.
