Retail Design Expo

“Holdsworth Design assisted our company on a recent exhibition (Retail Design Expo March 2016) at London Olympia. They provided an excellent service from start to finish and were always on hand to offer advice from design to installation.”

Karen Knell

Segment Marketing Manager, Tarkett

We were asked by Steve Urwin of Tarkett to pitch for the manufacture and installation of a stand designed for Tarkett at Retail Design Expo.


Having worked with Tarkett previously, we felt we were in an ideal position to offer Tarkett the benefit of our practical experience. We knew the product and its installation requirements.

Development process

We took our client’s design concept and after discussions with the organisers, determined the stand space Tarkett Visual for Retail Design Expo by HDLrestrictions. From that, we were able to create a stand that fulfilled the client’s design brief.

Production & installation

We used our core “Sodem’ product to create a framework and storage to the rear of the stand.

The stand carried two large format rear-illuminated graphics and included specialist detail lighting, along with our ‘Sodem Mega section’ clad in matt black ‘Dibond’ to form the feature canopy, again with specialist detail lighting.

A specially designed ‘feature’ product sample table was designed and manufactured, with branding and internal sample storage. This has a dual function as following the show it will be used for future permanent showroom use at Tarkett’s Lenhan office suite. Finally, we provided a professional installation team for the installation of the client’s Tarkett floor, thus successfully recreating the design concept proposed by the Tarkett design team.
