Displays for Trade Shows
Mott’s Trade Show Displays
Recently, we have completed 5 gorgeous displays that Mott’s will be using at Trade Shows around the country. These displays are comprised of a large collapsible dyesub fabric graphic, benches, solvent tiled flooring, and wooden displays that imitate a garden box with bottles of Mott’s vegetable juice growing out of the dirt. The displays break down into two medium sized PVC crates for shipping and storage.
Dirt Displays Decisions
Displays are often only printed graphics and frames, so this project was particular fun for everyone. One of the fun points was creating something that looked just like garden dirt. The interesting part was that it had to be completely solid and unmovable for shipping and public display reasons. The end result was perfect for it after much experimentation and settling on a blended combination of sawdust, liquid adhesives, floral moss, and paints (see left of main image). Continuing the garden, we made Mott’s products into plants that grow out of the dirt. This wasn’t really challenging, just fun and a break from the norms for display manufacture (see right of main image).
Display Flooring Solution
Another entertaining development point was making the printed floor tiles robust enough to withstand all foot traffic, while still being beautiful, and small enough to break down into the PVC crates. This part was a bit brain bending for those that worked on the display. I’ll include some of the plans in the gallery below to give you an idea. The end result was a combination of Sintra, ABS plastics, solvent printed vinyl, velcro, and a robust textured PVC overlaminate forming flooring for the display in 8′ x 10′ and 8′ x 8′ alternate configurations. This display flooring is visible in the main image as the green grassy area with stepping stones laid on top of our beat up lime green concrete shop floor.
The homelike warm colored woodwork would have been more challenging, but our woodworking team is comprised of ninjas that listen to country music.
The Extra Mile
Once we created some comprehensive instructions for setup and packing, we had a happy client and a job well done. Does your company or the company you use go the extra step to make sure there is nothing confusing about storage, setup, or packing?
