In addition to this website, Open IBA also comprises a standalone exhibition that we make available on demand and entirely free of charge. Unlike a traditional exhibition with pre-made exhibition panels, we do not send it out to an exhibitor but instead provide the print data so that you can print out the posters for your own use. The exhibition is an open invitation to people all over the world to become an ambassador for the IBA format.

The Open IBA exhibition is conceived to be simple and economical to produce and exhibit. The quantity and format of the posters is flexible and can be adapted to fit your respective exhibition space. Special Open IBA sticky tape for mounting the posters is also available. All you need is a suitable exhibition space with sufficient wall space and a committed exhibition team. 

Once you have registered, you will receive a login for the exhibition materials. This encompasses a preview of all the exhibition posters and a detailed tutorial with a step-by-step guide to everything you need to stage the exhibition. We can also provide supporting material to help you advertise and publicise your exhibition. Once you have decided to put on an Open IBA exhibition, we can send you the relevant print data on request.

Registration is only required to give us an overview of exhibition activities and so that we can verify correct use of the material we supply.

If you would like to know more, we’d be glad to assist you with your forthcoming exhibition. Please contact us at:
