Award-winning exhibition stands business celebrates 10 years

28th Feb

Founded by Rebecca Shipham in 2010, Ships and Pigs specialises in creating high-end exhibition stands for businesses that want to stand out at trade shows. The company, which has produced stands for major firms such as TikTok, Boots and Sony, is this year celebrating 10 years of partnerships with clients and agencies to produce work that has appeared at industry exhibitions all over the world. Earlier on in her design journey, Rebecca won the IPSE Freelancer of the Year award in 2015 for her work. The business has since been recognised by Exhibition News in 2016 and by LUX Life magazine as the best exhibition designer in Yorkshire in 2019. Rebecca first set out on her own when she moved back to Hull after working as a designer in London, and now manages teams of specialists who help to bring completed projects to life. Ships and Pigs offers the full service from initial concept drawings to overseeing completed build and installation. 
Looking to the future, Rebecca says she wants to grow the team in Hull and looks forward to working with more interesting clients to create something special.
