Your brand architecture is created on an interdisciplinary basis and always at eye level with you. plan‑j® develops, designs and accompanies the entire realisation process, from the creative concept, tendering and cost control, up to site supervision.

plan‑j® creates space for people to meet – without barriers!

Inclusion can only succeed through accessibility. Of course, this also applies to trade shows and events. Accessibility must not only focus on the access to the building, but must also be reflected in the architecture of the exhibition stand and in the communication design. The team of plan‑j® supports you in the conception and implementation of your barrier-free appearance. In doing so, the experts also take into account possible obstacles in illumination or media design – so that people with impairments can fully participate in the trade show.

plan‑j® creates special experiences – with wow effect

An event aims to provide participants with special and lasting experiences. By using new technologies and application possibilities such as Extended Reality (XR), participants have the opportunity to explore the world of your brand messages in a particularly eventful and sustainable way – for example, with the use of VR glasses. In this way, you can take your customers into distant or exclusive worlds and impressively illustrate the use of your products or services. Furthermore, you increase your number of participants and by sharing special experiences with people who are not physically present at the event. XR is sustainable, available for a long time and can always be adapted to current needs.

  • Hybrid concepts
  • Extended Reality
  • XR experiences (VR glasses)
  • Digital worlds
  • Virtual product presentations

See you in the digital world!

„Meetings in virtual spaces don’t have to be boring- instead they can inspire and impart knowledge. plan‑j® works with the latest technologies, puts itself completely in your situation and understands your requirements.“

In addition, hybrid events allow you to reach more executives who would have stayed away from the face-to-face event due to the increased time or travel involved.
