Every year since 2014, EXHIBITOR Magazine honors design excellence in portable, modular, and system exhibits with the Portable Modular Awards (PMAs).
And each year, we look forward to seeing which of our projects will be chosen, either as finalists or as winners for these prestigious honors. We have 5 Finalists up for awards, the second highest in the PMA program!
Best 10-by-10-Foot Exhibit – NuNaturals
As soon as we built this brilliant booth for the healthy sweetener brand NuNaturals, we knew it was a contender for a PMA award. With a large lightbox to pull customers in, seating that doubles as storage, custom lightweight details like the Sintra profile of a girl on a bike (NuNaturals icon), and the ability to expand to larger size booth spaces, it exemplifies how a modular design doesn’t have to be a cookie cutter design.
Best 10-by-10-Foot Exhibit – Verity
To compliment Classic Exhibits Extrusion lightboxes, Verity Solutions’ added wood frames and achieved an upscale design that retains the benefits of a modular booth. Interchangeable graphics for each lightbox allow specific messaging for each show, and the cantilevered reception counter and privacy wall can be swapped out with a demo or a seated discussion lounge.
Best 10-by-10-Foot Exhibit – Ocean Infinity
Ocean Infinity’s clean aesthetic attracts attention through its simplicity, and the PMA judges have been known to favor simply beautiful designs such as this. Backlit logo’s and glossy laminate do mix with reconfigurable panels!
Best Inline Exhibit – Eco-Systems Sustainable Exhibits
Eco-Systems is always raising the bar in modular exhibits. This year their own EXHIBITORLIVE booth caught the eye of the PMA judges with LED backlit graphics, a custom working waterfall tower, CNC canopy with a 3D logo header, reclaimed wood, and recycled aluminum components. Boxed water was a giveaway that doubled as an interesting design component in the booth.
Best Island Exhibit 600 to 1,000 square feet – Peraton 20×30
The Peraton booth proves that custom details can be modular too! Notice the custom shaped hanging sign with 3D logo and backlighting. It makes a huge statement, but packs down very small. Also note the semiprivate conference space, the powder-coated white extrusions hold LED accent lighting – beautiful AND lightweight AND modular. No wonder the judges chose this as a top design.
In addition to being eligible for awards in their individual categories, these designs are also eligible for a biggie: THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD…determined by YOU!
There is a two-month window where each computer, smartphone, and tablet is allowed to register 1 vote per day. Last year we won this award, and we are looking for a repeat victory! It’s time to VOTE every day from now until EXHIBITORLIVE (end of Feb) on all your devices!
