Dextra Stand

A family run business that employs 560 people has selected Clip Exhibition & Display to manage its stand design and build at a major industry show.

Dorset based Dextra Lighting Group, which is the largest privately owned lighting manufacturer in the UK, has teamed up with Bristol based Clip to design and build a 12 x 3 metre stand for the UK’s biggest lighting event, Lux Live – which is taking place this year at Excel in London.

Natasha Ward, who is Group Marketing Manager at Dextra Lighting Group, says that they have chosen to work with Clip again due to the company’s way of doing business, which was personal to Dextra and cutting-edge in what they could offer.

Natasha comments: “The Clip team is very easy to work with and took the time to learn about us, understanding what we required and treated us an individual business. The storyboarding and service they provided was first class and the whole approach was professional.

“They provided us with a total service from concept design to completion and we are looking forward to working with them again for Lux Live 2015.

“Like us Clip is also a family run business and we share the same values of putting the customer first and thinking long-term.”

As well as engaging Clip to build their big exhibition stands, Dextra Lighting Group also uses the company on an on-going basis for smaller display stands and other marketing collateral.

At Lux Live Dextra Lighting Group is also the main event sponsor and over 7,000 guests are expected to attend.

Paul Runacres, who is Head of Sales & Marketing at Clip Ltd, comments: “Dextra is a world-leading name so we are delighted to be working with them on this major project. We aim for special when it comes to exhibition and display and it’s rewarding to work on projects like this that test our imagination.”

Clip is an international leader in the design and building of exhibition stands for companies of all sizes; and counts Thatchers Cider, HSBC, Nandos, Hilton, Google, Westons Cider, BT and GSK as clients.

The Clip Group ended 2014 with revenues of £8.5 million, 83 staff on the books and having designed over 400 stands for some of the UK and world’s biggest exhibitions.
