Stone Becomes as Light as Fabric

Stone Becomes as Light as Fabric


Back in the early 90’s I worked for an engineering company that manufactured terminal blocks – I could explain what they are and what they do but you’d probably zone out in the first minute or so as they are seemingly irrelevant in the lives of most folks and are rarely a topic of conversation at any social gathering. My role at the time was Communications Manager and one of my responsibilities was to handle all things pertaining to the annual trade show schedule. This meant everything from marketing strategy and staff training down through the nitty-gritty of the what used to be the dreaded binder of paperwork to order labor, lights and everything and anything else you could possible imagine. Thankfully, these days, that is all more easily accomplished online!

Being new to the industry then, I was overly impressed with our behemoth sized booth and large multiple backlit graphic panels. We had what is most commonly called a “custom booth”.  It was huge! But unfortunately, it was very, very heavy and expensive. It took more than a day to set up …and that was with multiple people from our company plus hired laborers. It also cost a fortune to ship; heavy wooden crates made the surrounding aisles look like an 84 Lumber had set up shop in the middle of the exhibit hall! Changes to the backlit graphics were expensive and storing old “transparencies” was space consuming. Still, once it was up and the lights were turned on it was impressive.

Today, you could not pay me to go back to that overpriced, heavy, cumbersome, time consuming set-up and tear down, shipping nightmare. Why? Well, with the availability of systems such as Mark Bric Display’s ISOframe there is no need to struggle, or spend a fortune on display materials and shipping anymore. There are comparable solutions that give you that same custom look for a reasonable price and can outfit a larger exhibit space with a tool-free assembly display – which means low installation time and expense.  Hurray for turn of the century innovation!
