We were thrilled to be part of an event that welcomed Star Wars fans worldwide.
Comic Con at NEC Birmingham:
BE Event Hire provided furniture solutions that brought comfort and convenience to the attendees of this bustling event.
MCM London Comic Con:
As one of the most anticipated conventions in the UK, it required furniture that could withstand heavy use and provide comfort for hours of exploration.
London Model Engineering Exhibition:
A testament to our ability to cater to niche exhibitions, this event required furniture that highlighted the fine detail and precision of the exhibits.
Shropshire Model Show:
Our furniture solutions facilitated the seamless display of intricate models, contributing to the event’s success.
For each event, our furniture selection was guided by the unique requirements and theme of the exhibition. For instance, at the Star Wars Celebration, we supplied sturdy and spacious tables for merchandise display, comfortable seating for attendees, and functional backstage furniture for event staff.
At Comic-Con events, we emphasised providing ample seating options for attendees who might need to rest their feet between exploring various booths and attending panels. Our comfortable, lightweight, portable seating solutions were ideal for these scenarios.
The London Model Engineering Exhibition and the Shropshire Model Show showcased detailed models. They required tables that offered stability and were of an appropriate height to ensure the exhibits were easily viewable. Our traditional 6ft trestle tables were perfect for these needs.
