The doors opened for Manufacturing & Engineering Week at the NEC yesterday, and it's always a pleasure to watch the visitors flow into another great exhibition from 19 Group.

Not all Barmotion's coffee bars are for brand activations, exhibitions or conferences, as it also works with the film industry to provide on-site catering and refreshments. Last week Barmotion received an urgent call from a production company. The production team needed a coffee bar ready to serve the film crew, on set, in 36 hours time.

Barmotion, the event and corporate hospitality specialist, will be exhibiting at International Confex, ExCeL London, March 8-9, 2022, where it will be bringing some of its signature dishes and drinks to audiences at this popular Mash Media organised event.

Exhibit 3Sixty has appointed Katie Strain to the post of project manager, to accommodate rising demand for its exhibition services from organisers.

Exhibit 3Sixty was expecting a busy Q2 2022, and so when the Furniture Show was postponed from January to April, the Coventry-based exhibition builders found themselves simultaneously working on two shows at the NEC this Spring, building exhibitor stands for The Furniture show and as official contractor and supplier for carpet, stand electrics, graphics, rigging, AV, furniture and logistics at CHI Euronics Showcase. Both shows opened on April 24, 2022.

What Else Events, the organiser of the show, has chosen to hold the event as two regional editions with sustainability and accessibility in mind. A second SHW event will take place at Farnborough International, September 28-29, 2022, and to deliver both shows What Else Events has appointed Exhibit 3Sixty as its official full-service supplier.

Press Red Rentals, the event and exhibition AV specialists, has added lighting installation to the list of services it offers, with its first deployment at Hotel, Restaurant & Catering, 20-22 March 2022, ExCeL London, for client Interlink Design and Display on two stands.

Tim Manton, managing director, Interlink, explained why he chose Press Red for the first time, saying, “After the pandemic, we discovered we needed a new supplier for lighting installations. While we normally do everything in-house, we usually contracted lighting installation out to one of the larger exhibition companies, but Press Red stood out with its track record, transparency and no-nonsense approach. The Press Red team was the model of speed and efficiency, which was vital to getting the stands built-in time as we can't work on the stand until the lights are in and the gantry is raised. The team  installed over 50 100w LED lighting units onto the gantries, and everything worked faultlessly."

"We couldn't be happier with the service," Stanton concluded, "Here at Interlink we intend to use Press Red for all our lighting installations from now on. Outstanding!"

Derek Tallent, managing director, Press Red Rentals, said, "This was our first time installing a complete lighting set-up. It's not a service we've offered before, and I'm now more convinced than ever that we've got everything it takes to successfully deliver installations on this scale and meet the growing demand for lighting services."

Barmotion UK took our Crush bars to the big screen on September 24 and 27, 2021, at two London locations for independent film studio Sister Baby (Ltd), known for Gangs of London and other titles. Setting up in the Cavalry Barracks and the Backstage Centre, we were asked to provide beverages to the film crew as a thank you for their hard work on recent productions.
