Why van Straaten?

Family-owned Royal Agio Cigars, one of the largest cigar manufacturers in Europe. Was once again featured at the IPCPR in 2019. Agio produces 750 million cigars for customers in more than 100 countries. Van Straaten’s US sister company Cees Smit, was honored to help Agio to create a visual stunning and memorable stand for all exhibitants to see.

Van Straaten was selected by Agio because of the high-quality materials being used and van Straaten’s eye for detail. Van Straaten was the perfect candidate to make sure the booth represented the quality of Agio’s cigars.

How we work

For the stand van Straaten set up a 15 x 6 m booth and included full service, installation and dismantle of the entire booth, reproduction of graphics (combination of backlit and Blockout graphic), rental of award-winning pucklights, and the production and usage of carpet for the booth as well

Not only was van Straaten responsible for the creation of the booth itself. We also provided additional services during the event, for example possible reparation of existing items, such as wooden grids, glass showcases, cabinets, aluvision frames. Production and repair of storage crates used to ship every single product from and of the show site. This shows that van Straaten makes sure that everything stays top-notch for the duration of the event
