We’ve briefly outlined exactly what this involves, broken down into individual steps.

As an experienced exhibition stand constructor, we know that exhibiting at an event is a complex undertaking and requires a seamless combination of various different factors and contributors. At Compass Fairs, we provide comprehensive consultancy and collaborative planning in line with your wishes and taking account of the specific circumstances. By building a transparent and open relationship with you, we ensure we have a complete overview and also retain the flexibility to incorporate requests for changes, even at short notice. Against this backdrop, we provide unique, high-quality solutions that deliver a high return on investment and secure long-term customer loyalty.

1. Project planning

As an exhibition stand constructor, this is where we let our creative juices flow. We use state-of-the-art visualisation technology to turn your vision into a real eye-catcher. Whether it’s a bespoke stand design or a modern system stand, that’s your decision. And, of course, we’re happy to give thought to the right accessories and additional equipment.

2. Developing the stand design

When we design your exhibition stand, reflecting your branding, products and values is a top priority. We combine modern graphics with advanced, sustainable production methods. Upon request, we can also put together suitable graphics for you and print templates for your stand, its walls and your promotional material.

3. Graphic design

Sustainability is an increasingly central part of our work. With this in mind, we use furniture and materials from our own warehouses or produce them in our own metalworking and woodworking shop. We rely on long-standing, experienced partners to realise special requests.

4. Producing the stand

In addition to designing, delivering, assembling and dismantling exhibition stands, if you wish we can also store your stand and transport it to your next exhibition, whether in Germany or abroad. We rely on our in-house logistics processes and proven international partners to ensure that your stand is transported sustainably. We offer your everything from a single source – swiftly, flexibly and cost-effectively!

5. Stand storage & logistics


Compass Fairs

Our exhibition stand construction firm has operated across Scandinavia for over 25 years, becoming a market leader in exhibition organisation, exhibition stand construction, logistics and venue management.

Since 1997, Compass Fairs has organised its own exhibitions in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Germany. In 2022, the exhibition stand builder Standesign, based in Nyborg, Denmark, became part of our corporate group. We also produce and supply our own flooring solutions for exhibitions and events. We established Compass Fairs GmbH in Hamburg, Germany, in response to growing demand for exhibition stand services from new and existing customers in the world’s largest trade far market.

In keeping with our mission statement – “Together we make it possible” – we aspire to become the Number One partner for exhibition and event stands in Germany. We turn ideas and visions into reality, collaborating closely with our customers and following the Scandinavian attitude to life for which we have become renowned.

As a specialist in exhibition stand construction, we always strive to see things from our customers’ perspective and create a memorable impression. See for yourself!


The best of both worlds

What makes us special as a partner? What sets us apart from other exhibition stand manufacturers?

Germany is the world’s largest market for exhibitions, congresses and events. It is characterised by its strong market potential and its robust, cosmopolitan economy. Germany is, in particular, a key driver of new technology and places a strong emphasis on sustainability and reliable quality.

What comes to mind when you think of Norway, Sweden and Denmark? You might think of…

Fjords and mountains
Hospitality and Midsummer festivals
Honesty and respect
Happiness and composure
Open-mindedness and nature
Creativity and design

We blend our strong German characteristics with this unique Scandinavian mindset, combining them in every aspect of our work.

We want you to be more than just satisfied with our products and services: we want you to experience hygge, a Danish concept that describes a particularly comfortable, contented sense of mind.

In short: We want you to feel that you are in good hands with us. This is the only way to ensure we can collaborate effectively – and turn your vision into reality!


Individuality and uniqueness:
As a specialist exhibition stand builder, we develop individual, customised solutions for your event and exhibition appearances. We’re here to help you achieve your goals.

Sustainable materials and environmentally friendly practices are top priorities for us when designing and constructing exhibition stands. Are you looking to ensure your next exhibition appearance reflects your environmental responsibility? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We take account of sustainability at every step, from designing exhibition stands to transporting them, assembling them at events and storing them for later reuse.

Our experienced team of experts guarantees that our services meet the highest quality standards in design, construction and service – in keeping with the latest guidelines and insights.

Mentality and lifestyle:
Our Scandinavian mindset is reflected in our composed, innovative approach. We aim to foster potential customers’ trust in your company, your brand and your services – and encourage them to do business with you. Together we can make the impossible possible.

We believe in the power of collaboration and communication. These aspects are front and centre of our work with every customer. This enables us to implement your visions and ideas as effectively as possible when designing and constructing your exhibition stand.

Data security:
Your data is safe and secure with us. We comply with the latest regulations from the GDPR and make swift adjustments to any reforms in this field.

Our team of technicians will fully assemble your stand on schedule and hand it over to you personally.

Event support:
We’ll never leave you high and dry: we provide constant support throughout all events and fulfil your requirements.

We ensure sustainability in exhibition stand construction

Why are we a premium partner in terms of sustainability? How can we ensure your exhibition stand is sustainable?

Sustainability is a central aspect of exhibition stand construction, now more than ever. As an experienced, leading exhibition stand builder in Scandinavia, Compass Fairs is now bringing these values to Germany.


Environmentally friendly materials and practices

At Compass Fairs, we rely on sustainable materials and environmentally friendly practices. We are committed to an environmentally responsible approach every step of the way, from selecting materials for your stand to transporting it and assembling it at the event. In doing so, we actively contribute to reducing environmental pollution.


Efficient planning and logistics

Our many years of experience enables us to plan and implement exhibition stands efficiently. Thanks to meticulously planned logistics with our own fleet and precise coordination with selected, long-standing partners, we can minimise resource consumption and reduce carbon emissions.


Individual, sustainable stand design

We design every exhibition stand to our customers’ specific requirements. This includes integrating elements into the design that promote sustainability – for stands that are both aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly. In addition, we regularly replace worn-out materials to conserve further resources. We produce our own exhibition carpets and collect them for subsequent use in an in-house recycling process.


Sustainability as a common goal

We collaborate closely with our customers to implement their ideas and visions for their stand in a sustainable manner. By working together, we help to promote sustainability and demonstrate that exhibition stand construction and environmental protection can go hand in hand.


Responsible storage and reuse

Once the event is over, we can store your stand for you if you wish. We rely on reusable elements and materials, which improves your sustainability credentials beyond a single exhibition.

With our experience, commitment to sustainable solutions and efforts to enhance efficiency, Compass Fairs is a dependable partner for sustainable exhibition stand construction in Germany. Together we make it possible to ensure your next exhibition appearance is successful while also protecting the environment.
