These prices are ballpark only and intended as a reference. These costs exclude floorspace and other peripheral costs ie: they are for the stand only complete with structure, lighting, graphics, flooring and details.

Budget Exhibits

Welcome to Budget Exhibits Budget Exhibits is a division of H3D and is aimed at the exhibitor who is more conscious of what they have to spend on congresses, conferences and exhibitions.
