matm selects Linx modular exhibition system to put Xn Hotels on show

Thursday 5th June 2014   by Stuart Bickerton

Xn Hotels Systems, the global hotel management systems company,  commissioned matm to create a highly visual, yet cost-effective, stand for the leading hotel and hospitality show Hotelympia.



We managed the creation of the exhibition stand from start to finish. This included:

  • Design and print of full height exhibition graphics for the rear Linx modular exhibition wall
  • Hire, build and break-down of the Linx modular exhibition system wall – with curved panels, tables and lockable storage areas
  • Illuminated graphic panels to provide extra impact for the stand
  • iPad demonstration pods, which allowed Xn Hotels to demonstrate its industry-leading software at a comfortable height for visitors (these are available for hire or for sale)
  • A large monitor for product demonstrations with a wireless keyboard and mouse
  • Full stand build-up and break-down

Another service we provide is taking away heavy or difficult-to-carry promotional items, returning them to the client later.

This saves marketing and sales staff struggling to the exhibition venue car park or on to buses and trains with armfuls of sales and promotion materials: not a pleasant experience after spending a long day meeting potential customers.

By using the modular Linx exhibition stands, Xn had the benefit of high impact visuals, while making a very significant saving over the main alternative, commissioning a purpose-built exhibition stand.

In addition, the graphic panels can be securely stored, and used for the next exhibition, contributing to ongoing savings.

The Linx modular exhibition system can be used to create stands in many different shapes and sizes, and to meet the requirements of a range of budgets.

“The stripes got a lot of positive feedback. Students took pictures, the show organisers took pictures and a rug manufacturer on the last day asked if they could copy the idea!”

Some very pleasing feedback from Jonathan Carter, Marketing Manager at Telford luxury bath manufactuer V+A, commenting on some work matm did on the company’s latest exhibition stand. Thanks JC!

V+A needed a design for two 84″ x 24″ light boxes – something that perfectly matched a brand that’s both timeless and very fashionable.

Using industry-standard illustration software we created some classic organic designs, full of colour to fit the light boxes perfectly, says Tom Blockley, a designer at matm, the marketing, graphic design, web development, digital media and PR agency at Jackfield near Telford.

Here are the stripes in the proposed stand design.
