About us

Hello & welcome. We’re glad you’re here.

We think it’s fair to say the last 12 months have been ‘interesting’. One thing we probably all agree on is that we will all appreciate real-life interactions more than ever before. Whilst technology has helped us keep going and keep in touch, it’s just not the same. There’s a lot to catch up on and we’re looking forward to helping clients old and new come roaring back.

Our motto is ‘Making Life Easier’ and that’s what we try to do every day. Whether you’re a marketing or brand manager, event planner, or even one of those finickity finance people that don’t like spending money, we aim to make your life easier. Our products look amazing which is why the marketing guys and girls love us, they set up in a few seconds so the event folk love that and we aim to keep operational costs low whilst offering plenty of financing options so even the bean counters and their bottom lines are happy.

As you probably know at The Clear Idea we are passionate about great mobile showcase design that works with complete simplicity. These core values have been at the heart of our business from the production of our first transparent event structures twenty years ago and remain so today (we don’t just create transparent things despite our name). From humble beginnings and a £2,000 loan in 1999, we are now proud to say we have designed and produced showcases, roadshow vehicles, and experience centers for many of the biggest brands all over the world (at the last count we’ve worked with 30/100 of the world’s biggest brands – you can see who they are below). Our recent developments have focused on expandable displays that operate with a one or two-person team and that deploy in just a few seconds – the result is ACE (Affordable Customer Engagement).

With a global reputation servicing automotive brands our aim is to focus on environmentally-friendly displays for the new range of Electric Vehicles that are being introduced to the market. Our experience centers require small teams to operate and relocate which ensures we tread lightly on the planet. We’re confident our new display for Porsche North America is going to set the standard for automotive experience centers in the USA.

In such challenging economic conditions, we appreciate the need to be as flexible as we can in terms of financing access to our product range. That’s why our products can be rented for the short-term, lease-financed, or purchased outright. However our clients want to play it, we’re here to find a way to help them get back on the road and speaking to their customers. And if you need help with the logistics of location finding, we can help there too.

So, we hope that explains our motto ‘Making Life Easier’ and enjoy looking around.
