Creative solutions to innovative displays

Activation Ltd offers its clients a unique bespoke design and display installation service for their priceless artefacts and ephemera.


As a family run business with over 18 years of experience in display work, we pride ourselves on listening to our clients’ requirements. We can provide you with creative solutions to integrate your prized possessions within your own environment and deliver sophisticated displays that are (so much more) inspiring.

“The showcases look absolutely terrific  - you’ve elevated the objects from the ordinary to the attention-worthy! 


I really appreciate the craftsmanship and attention to detail reflected in the mounts and I’m so grateful to you both for such a stunning end result. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you both and I do hope we have the opportunity to work together again in the future.” 


Clodagh Miskelly, Education & Heritage Manager, Ulster Rugby

“Starting off purely in museum and exhibition design, we set up Activation Ltd out of necessity. We couldn’t find an organisation which combined the artisan skills needed to design artifact displays with the practical knowledge of manufacture and a true understanding of the environments we work within. Our vision was a unique company that combined in-house artistic and creative solutions with a practical can do attitude. With many high profile projects behind us, we are still true to that vision, still passionate, still working closely with our clients and still striving to create exclusive displays.”
