We are Vista and Sibos

Having previously delivered stands worldwide, from Boston and Dubai to Singapore and Geneva, we’ve already got a wealth of knowledge and insight into the world’s premier financial services event and felt excited at the challenge of producing and delivering stands for Sibos over in Sydney – our fifth consecutive Sibos show.

Travelling to the other side of the world, we helped to deliver exhibition stands and experiences for our longstanding clients NatWest and Lloyds Bank at Sibos 2018.

All our key exhibition services are provided efficiently in-house from our own production unit in the UK, covering everything from 3D design, to artwork and printing. Our approach goes far beyond using the correct brand identity, instead reaching deep into your brand culture and values to create versatile, interactive environments that reflect who you are and how you do business.

All our projects come with a specialist, dedicated Project Manager, acting as the clients one point of contact for overseeing all requirements and providing end-to-end management throughout.

Sibos Sydney 2018

Utilising our full service approach, we enhanced both stands by incorporating an experiential element to create a standout brand experience for attendees. All on-stand catering and venue liaison was also taken care of, ensuring people felt welcome and relaxed and OH&S standards were met.

Lloyds Bank’s stand was originally designed and technically detailed for multiple use, with the ambition to further evolve it for Sibos in Sydney.

The stand incorporated additional curves and blond timber to create a warmer, more welcoming space that provided Lloyds customers with an engaging hospitality experience. Key feature areas were made from innovative, eco-friendly materials and textures, used to compliment the brand and nod to Lloyds environmental action.

Thanks so much to amazing Exhibitions Team for all their work in delivery Sibos 2018 in Sydney for Lloyds. The build was slick and on schedule and the finished stand looked very professional and of high quality, very happy client!

NatWest’s stand took full advantage of the vertical space, incorporating a mezzanine level with meeting rooms to add depth and provide an extra level of privacy. Taking inspiration from their London headquarters, grey block pattern wall cladding was used to create a stylish and contemporary design to add a truly luxurious look and feel to the stand.

Slatted medium oak finishes and eye-catching halo lighting canopies were influenced by NatWest’s branches, bringing a minimal, clean-lined design that provided both functionality and form in equal measure.

“The WAV Team at Sibos 2018 looking after our NatWest stand were highly professional, knowledgeable, experienced and an absolute pleasure to work with. They were consistently reliable and very helpful with all the prep work; throughout the build; managing and making all my last-minute additional requests happen; and just a moment away if needed during the live exhibition. The quality of the NatWest stand from the initial design to final stand build was excellent. I look forward to working with the team again at Sibos 2019!”

Kate Fullbrook, Event Manager, NatWest
