drp and its exhibition division drpexhibition have recently produced a custom-build exhibition stand for technology company Open GI Ltd at the annual British Insurance Brokers' Association (BIBA) conference and exhibition. Hosted at Manchester Central, 10th – 11th of May, the event was attended by a record-breaking 7,369 visitors and just over 200 exhibitors over the course of two days.

Open GI conducted a large volume of significant client meetings over the two days, which were facilitated by the central Manchester location and an accessible and inviting stand.
Now in its 39th year, BIBA is the UK 's leading general insurance brokers' organisation and its event is the hub of the UK’s insurance sector. drpexhibition worked on a 4-metre high stand at the entrance of the event, creating and designing a bespoke stand for Open GI Ltd, which are one of the leading technology partners to general insurance brokers in the UK and Irish markets.
Open GI was positioned at the very front entrance of the hall this year, which was a privileged position in relation to branding and exposure. The objectives of the stand were for Open GI Ltd to network with peers and gain valuable insight on the latest market trends, launch new products with live demos, and gain new prospects.
Ed Vickery, Head of drpexhibition, commented, “It is the first time we have worked with a client at BIBA and it was extremely exciting to work with Open GI Ltd on their stand. It’s their biggest industry event, one that gives them the chance to showcase both their products and services, and it was an extremely successful event.”
Nick Giddings, Chief Marketing Officer at Open GI Ltd, commented, “It was great working with drp. BIBA is very hands-on but they took the stress out of organising such a high-profile event and ensured the whole process ran smoothly. The team were both helpful and knowledgeable, so much so we will be looking to work with them again in the upcoming calendar years. BIBA is enormously productive for us and a fantastic opportunity to do lots of business with many levels of the insurance community.”
