When you contact show organizers for registration and choose your exhibit hall, consider next your exhibit strategy. Will you rent, buy, or try to put together your own exhibit? We recommend a custom modular rented exhibit for a number of reasons. For the Railway Interchange we suggest custom elements such as model train components integrated with AV, and delivered with promotional products that are interactive but set on modular frames. In 2019, the exhibits that perform the best are those that have the ability to be interactive and have dynamic looped video elements in place of high resolution graphics. Exhibit Experience offers the latest in dynamic branding with lighting and video looping, whether you are projecting or are using LED skins.
Exhibit Experience uses BeMatrix modular framework and LED Skins combined with proprietary customized elements fabricated in our Orlando and Las Vegas facilities. Each exhibit is designed specifically with your brand guidelines in mind and our project management teams deliver hundreds of exhibits annually all over the world. Every exhibit we design and deliver we try to do better.
