With over 18 years experience we are specialized in promotional materials for indoor and outdoor applications such as tents flags and banners, as well as material for trade shows or showrooms as pop up walls, roll ups, exhibition panels.

Sale of mobile promotional material for exhibitions, road shows and events.

Krekels has grown to be the specialist for promotional material. Whether it’s printed tents in all possible sizes, beach flags, banners, displays or presentation walls… We guarantee that your brand will be seen. Inside and outside.

Coca Cola, Heineken, Peugeot and KBC bank all opted for our customer-oriented approach.

We happily invite you to our showroom in Lokeren (Belgium) where you can see all the possibilities we offer. After all, by touching our products yourself, you can be certain that you will be buying the right quality.

Our very own team of graphic designers will do real justice to your brand on the material you choose. You can rest assured, though, we will send you a full graphic design for your approval first. All our products are neatly packaged and quick to set up. And after your purchase, we continue to support you with product training, logistics issues, repairs and maintenance.

Because we import our products directly from the source and have our own printing equipment to customise them, you can count on competitive prices, while our extensive stock guarantees speedy delivery. We are continuously scouring the market for new things. We have grown to become the Benelux’s market leader in folding tents and are Europe’s number one for Startent.

International brands, advertising agencies, cities and municipal councils, clubs and SMEs… we count them all amongst our customers.
