Congratulations to the 3D Exhibits design team whose excellence in custom trade show exhibit design and marketing has earned Bronze Awards for five 3D Exhibits clients in the International Business Awards/Stevie Awards. Garden of Life, Nature’s Plus, TTI and Control4 were recognized in the Best Exhibition Display category. Jacobsen was recognized in the Best Brand Experience Event category.
Garden of Life won for its exhibit at Natural Products Expo West. Designed as an immersive experience, the 20’ x 40’ booth was a larger-than-life scenic depiction of a garden, bringing key elements of organic gardening to life. Visitors were attracted by thirteen-foot tall gardening tools embedded in a mound of dirt and delighted to discuss Garden of Life’s products in the fourteen-foot tall watering can/conference room. "Excellent project, delivered with an eye catching display, with a simple message put across in an exciting way," commented one IBA judge.
Judges called the Nature’s Plus exhibit "An excellent blend of modern style and techniques, with natural colors, sounds and textures. Visually stimulating, and putting the message across well." Inspired by boutique hotel design, this exhibit featured comfortable ambiance, multiple conversation areas, a water feature, a product sampling bar, custom contemporary jazz sound track and free wifi.
Control4 showcased how its home automation products look and operate in end users’ homes via a custom trade show exhibit design that evoked the architectural vocabulary of modern home design. Flat plane roof panels, wooden beams, stonewalls and hardwood floors integrated seamlessly with product display kiosks. Judges praised the exhibit as being. "Sleek, chic, clean...it looks effortless."
Judges called the TTI exhibit, "Simply gorgeous. This is what I envision the "showroom of the future" to look like…" This ultra streamlined and sparse environment elevated the vacuum cleaning products of TTI brands Hoover and Oreck to hero status.
Jacobsen created a non-traditional promotional campaign that capitalized on the fact that Golf Industry Show (GIS) attendees like to play games and possess a healthy sense of competition. This non-traditional program encompassed multiple booths, a food-truck park and a scavenger hunt. Attendees test-drove Jacobsen turf maintenance equipment, enjoyed free pedi cab rides and feasted on free Jacobsen Burgers. "[I] like the use of multiple locations in order to increase the exposure of your company at this event," commented one judge.
This year, the International Business Awards drew 3,800 entries from more than 60 nations. “It’s fulfilling to see your work stand up on the global stage against such tough competition,” says Gene Faut, president of 3D Exhibits.
