A Blackpool exhibitions company is gearing up for expansion after winning a deal to supply the latest thing in portable displays.

Paul Turner Displays is set to move to new premises at Any Johnson Way after securing the contract to sell Triga Display Systems, a new innovation from South Africa featuring self tensioning fabric.

Managing director Paul Turner said: “We are going to be the first to bring this system to the UK. The company is looking to have a manufacturing base for the UK and Europe, which could be in Blackpool too.

“It’s a very versatile , light and portable system you can carry it in the boot of your car. I saw it at an exhibition in Munich , it is already established in the US and Australia and so I wanted to bring it here.”

The team at Paul Turner Displays have been involved in the exhibition industry for the past 30 years, working with clients such as Boodles jewellers, Preston City Council and Lancaster University, as well as many local solicitors and accountancy firms.

Paul said: “We are very excited about launching this unique system into the UK market.

“We have found over the past few years that a substantial number of clients have been keen to find a solution that is environmentally friendly whilst achieving the impact they require.

“With Triga Display Systems, the graphics are printed on to a fabric and applied over a lightweight frame once on site, rather than being printed onto paper or vinyl and mounted on board.

“Seamless graphics 10m x 3m can easily be applied to the system, and once applied the clever self tensioning element takes over and the graphic is held taut and in position.

“The fabric is washable, lightweight and is very easy to transport and install.

“All this adds up to an extremely cost-effective, environmentally friendly way of producing exhibition stands.”

The system can be built into towers up to 5m high, reception desks and bespoke configurations using standard tools.

Paul added, “We’re convinced this will be a tremendous success from day one. We are already aware of a number of companies that regularly exhibit across the UK and worldwide whom this system would be perfect for.

“It’s fantastic to bring a system to the UK that’s used by blue chip companies such as Google, HP and Adidas.”
