Nearly a third of 18-year olds in the UK gained a place at University of College in 2017, and The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) anticipates similar numbers this year. Taking UK, EU and international students together, more than 530,000 students were taken on by a university or college.
Clearly, student loans, Brexit and recent economic challenges have done little to put people off pursuing their education to the next level.
Competition between institutions for those with the greatest potential is intense. If you’re not familiar with the Higher Education sector, you might be surprised by how many marketing activities take place to attract applications, and this includes a large number of events.
To stand out in the UK’s university sector events it’s important to have a professionally designed stand that always looks its best.
That’s why Nottingham University’s events team asked Bill Bowden Events Logistics to deliver and assemble their stand to a series of student exhibitions and to dismantle and store the stand at the end of each event.
They’re clearly pleased with how it’s going
“We needed a specialist event logistics company to help us set up our exhibition stand at higher education exhibitions across the country and Bill Bowden were able to meet our requirements. We had a number of non-standard items of equipment to transport and set up, and Bill Bowden provided an excellent service at a great price. Bill, Brad and the team’s professionalism ensured that each event went smoothly and was stress-free.”

We’re now talking to other universities and colleges who have been impressed by our work. Some have asked us to help with the design of bespoke stands – something we’re well equipped to help with.
It’s our pleasure to be supporting institutions that are educating the next generation. If your university or college is interested in a stress-free way to present the best possible image to your potential students at events, please get in touch. We’d be delighted to help.
