RENAULT - South Africa
It was a pleasure working with 4Q Design from commencement in June through to stand breakdown after JIMS at end October.
You met Renault’s high expectation, you delivered on time – every time. When something needed reprinting, moved and/or re-installed
on the stand it happened. One particular morning Alice and Andrew arrived NASREC at 05h30 for a stand photo shoot. All of the above did not go without notice.
We look forward to working with 4Q Design, as a team in the near future
