Awards & accreditations

Skyline Whitespace is proud to have attained a number of awards and accreditations over the years. Each is a marker both of our success as a business and the quality of our products and team.

ESSA member


Peace of mind for your exhibition stand or event

ESSA Members are accepted by their peers. All members are required to submit company accounts, proof of insurance and two referees. Use of ESSA logo is taken very seriously and members are subject to ad hoc site visit checks. Using an ESSA accredited supplier means that you’re working with a member that follows clearly defined Code of Conduct and Quality Service Charter, which gives you peace of mind and quality assured service.

Although very rarely used, ESSA Bond also offers completion guarantee. ESSA insures against non-completion of work undertaken by it’s members, meaning the work will always be carried out and completed by another ESSA member.

It is very important to have confidence in your contractors to give guarantee of success and make sure everything runs smoothly. Preparing for an exhibition can be stressful whether experienced or not. But it doesn’t always have to be stressful. Using an ESSA member will ensure you have a successful, scare-free event.

We’re proud to say that 2017 is Skyline’s 14th year as an ESSA member!
