What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The client requested our team create a unique eye catching trade show display that would capture the attention of the attendees. The goal was to entice people to visit their booth to learn and understand details of their insurance services. The entire display needed to be easy to assemble and transport.

What is unique or complex about the project?

There was a blend of dye sub printed fabrics sewn pillowcase style and Silicone Edge Graphics to allow the customer to install other components such as windows and lights after we were completed.

What were the results of the project?

The client was very pleased that their exhibit was the highlight of the trade show and did in fact attract many visitors to their booth.
