The sky is the limit, thanks to our loud baring system beTruss and Double Deck.
We love to look back at last month’s highlight in Belgium
beMatrix launches an online platform to design exhibition stands, as well as to generate quotations and panel plans with ease, in no time at all.
beMatrix USA, the Atlanta based manufacturer of modular stand building systems and owned by Stefaan Decroos & Edwin Van der Vennet, is once again part of the rankings of the prestigious Inc. 5000 list.
The most promising companies of 34 European countries have been listed as the ‘Ones to watch’ by the organisers of the ‘European Business Awards’. Each nominee has delivered exceptional results in one of the 18 EBA categories and reflects the core values of the program: innovation, success and ethical business practices.
Working with beMatrix means that you can count on continuous support by a professional and experienced
team that synchronises its thinking with yours in all phases of your project.
It starts with the design: your drafts are translated into a technical 3D drawing, with detailed parts lists and clear assembly
drawings. We also make a render of the beMatrix structure, so you get a first impression of the possible end result.
There is a good reason why the beMatrix frame system, since its introduction 25 years ago, has remained untouched: to this day, the system still proves its worth thanks to its fast assembly and disassembly, seamless design and unlimited reusability. Some brands are just as clever: their design has been the same for decades, since that’s how consumers recognise them, they are timeless and solid to their core.
Making a mistake is what makes you human. You can learn from failures. And we all know that every cloud has a silver lining. These are just some of the well-meant bits of advice we use to try and help our family or someone close to us needing some support. But what if it really does go horribly wrong? When an innovative idea isn’t successful at all? Well, even the most genius but failed gadgets and ideas still deserve a warm home – that must have been Samuel West’s intention, conservator of ‘The Museum of Failure’.
