About us

Access Displays began in 1990 when established by its founder and C.E.O. Peter Bowen. Peter’s goal was to help businesses and individuals get the most out of exhibiting. The exhibition industry was growing rapidly. Access Displays needed to grow too. Peter built a team of passionate individuals to support his endeavour. With clients attending more events, our partnerships with them expanded.

What our customers say

Regent Seven Seas Cruises

Jason was absolutely fantastic yesterday … so glad we chose Access to handle this all for us, it’s taken away so much stress!!

Thanks heaps once again!!

Sunnen Products

Just a very quick note to thank all at Access Displays for all your help and hard work on our stand at MACH 2018.

I have exhibited at shows for over 20 years and been stand manager for the last 12 and this show was the least stress free, particularly during build.

Your stand builders were very professional and hard working with great communication from all the guys.

The finished stand was superb, with lots of compliments during the show from customers (and rival companies!).

As this was our first show with you, the final show stand was even more pleasing.

Again if you could thank everyone involved from myself and Sunnen Products Ltd it would be very much appreciated.

Movex Equipment

Thank you very much for all your team’s efforts with our MACH Show exhibition stand. The show’s been a great success and we’ve been thrilled with your attention to detail to ensure we’re entirely happy with stand.

World Kitchen

I just wanted to say I have been doing this job for many years but not one stand builder has ever been so accommodating or as professional as your team but I want to single out Emma Thatcher as she has been simply outstanding as a project manager a true asset to your company.

Cristex Composite Materials

Thank you @AccessDisplays the stand looks amazing. We are all ready for the visitors.


I have just about caught up with everything now after the exhibition :)

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone at Access Displays; Rebecca was great coordinating everything and the stand looked fantastic.

Everyone was really pleased with how smooth everything went…Your guys who built and dismantled it were on time, tidy and professional too so great job Access :)


We were 100% happy with the stand and the staff who erected and dismantled the stand both of whom were excellent, we have booked a slightly bigger space for W18 if you would like to pencil us in.
