EXPO DUBAI 2020
Hannes Köntti of Sauhu Oy is a very dedicated professional in supplying back light picture walls for use in
fairs and exhibitions. Sauhu provided excellent wall size pictures for Finland pavilion in Expo 2020 Dubai for
office, meeting room and entry to the VIP area. In all aspects Hannes Köntti fulfilled all agreed aspects of
our co-operation to the fullest with precision and keeping in schedule. In addition to providing the back light
screens he has been most helpful in acquiring sufficiently high quality picture material for the use in Finland
The picture quality of Sauhu products is excellent and exceeded the needs of quality in Finland pavilion.
Compared to similar prints, the back light screens attract more attention and seem sharper. Compared to
video screens and projections Sauhu product is much more suitable when no moving pictures are required,
since installation requires no projector installations and you can come right next to the picture without
creating a shadow.
Sauhu products extended the spaces of windowless spaces (VIP entrance, office and meeting room) by
creating a feeling of much larger space with the whole wall size sharp image. In addition the picture content
enhanced the Finnishness of the VIP area to the point of making local expatriates increasingly home sick.
Sauhu products are most suitable for high quality spaces both for extending the feel of the size of the space
and enhancing the desired feeling of the space by relevant picture material.
I would definitely be happy to use Sauhu products in future events and projects if such
