Behind the scenes, build at Sibos

Ever been curious as to how an exhibition stand develops from being a design on paper to real life construction onsite, ready for the show to open? Take a look at the below, behind the scenes photos, taken onsite with Nest at Sibos in Toronto 2017.

Sibos 2017, Toronto

Sibos is the world’s premier financial services event and 2017’s location of choice was The Metro Convention Centre in Toronto.

Nest added to our existing portfolio and delivered stands for Six Securities Services, Smartstream Technologies, Isbank, Accuity, Pega Systems and IHS Markit. 

Brief’s ranged from corporate, professional lounges to experiential brand journeys and all were answered with bespoke solutions.
