North East Skills Expo

The Brief

The North East Skills event is held at Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle. It is an annual event aimed to inspire the region’s youth about their careers and opportunities.

The event attracts young people from schools, colleges and community groups. It encourages them to participate in a range of activities that will give them a taste of the skills and challenges that young people will meet in a range of careers.

Newcastle College were attending and their vision was for us to build and design an exhibition stand. They wanted one that re-purposed the award winning stand we built for them at the 2016 event. The stand was also required to showcase their abilities and demonstrate their capabilities of being a hip and trendy place to study.


What We Did

By utilising our design and production skills, we designed and built a stunning exhibition stand. One that showcased their branding, displayed their striking graphics and communicated their message of ‘BE YOUR BEST’.

Our team created a space that was both inviting to the public but also in keeping with their brand guidelines.

We re-designed their 2016 stand removing the royal blue branding to incorporate a cleaner finish of a background. This allowed us to include more colour and new graphics to produce another striking stand. The stand was completed at a fraction of the cost of a complete rebuild.


“The team were great at understanding what our needs were, they listened to our vision and took on board our comments when designing and finalising our stand. From first contact to delivery the Harrisons team were excellent. Harrisons worked to a tight turn around and didn’t disappoint”
