Now for Something Completely Different

Those with a few grey hairs will recognize this line from Monty Python as the abrupt, often nonsensical transition from one skit to another. In this month’s newsletter, we share videos, blog posts, and a 1960’s car ad from Classic Distributor Partners. In other words, something different.

We think you’ll enjoy how cleverly they market their exhibit companies. Are you promoting your company in creative ways? Please let us know.  

(2) Empire Display Solutions Videos

At Classic Exhibits, we rarely see show photos, let alone videos of the exhibits we design and build. However, Matthew Houck of Empire Display Solutions shared two professionally edited videos from Natural Products East.

The videographer is James Morano, and Matt and Aniyah Haynes narrate. Jeff Garrett and Alex Lebedev were the PMs and Kim DiStefano the Designer.

Both show how our collaboration with Empire Display Solutions resulted in two amazing custom exhibits.

Tradeshow Guy Blog Posts

One of the best bloggers in the trade show industry is Tim Patterson, aka The Tradeshow Guy. He posts, on average, about three blogs a week, including his weekly Monday Morning Coffee video and podcast. His trade show marketing advice is consistently practical, personal, and fun to read.

I’ve learned a lot from Tim over the years and often give his books to new Classic employees as an introduction to the industry. Although we don’t agree on everything, like whether “trade show” should be one or two words, we do agree that trade show marketing is a craft learned from skilled professionals. Below are some recent blog posts.

USA Exhibits and Gear – Jim Munro

This has nothing to do with trade shows, but a lot to do with marketing, creativity, and humor. Jim Munro owns USA Exhibits and Gear in Fresno, CA. Recently, he posted the following in LinkedIn about his dad.

In Jim’s words… “I wanted to share this piece of family history from the early 1960’s. My dad was a California auto dealer who specialized in sourcing and selling specialty, hi-performance cars that were popular during this period. The following is a clip from our local newspaper, The Fresno Bee, in 1963.

I know there are some Gearheads out there that will appreciate the creative descriptions. Yes, he was quite a character!”

Charging Stations for Trade Shows and Events

In 2016, we decided to design attractive charging solutions for trade shows and events. At the time, most charging solutions resembled sea monsters with tentacles or space aliens from a B movie. Not much has changed. Most are still ugly.

At Classic Exhibits, we never stopped introducing new designs, like the over 40 tables, counters, kiosks, and towers in our Charging Gallery in EDS. Not enough? Add wireless charging to the 200+ counters in our Counters and Pedestals Gallery for just $125 per pad.

Perhaps it’s time to consider phone and tablet charging like intermittent wipers. How did we ever survive without them?

SuperNova Lightbox: Adjustable Tablet Mount

August 26th, 2019 COMMENTS

LED Lightboxes should be more than just a pretty face. They should also be functional. SuperNova Lightboxes already have single or double-side shelving options. See MOD-1615, 1616, 1617, and 1618 for examples. We’re delighted to add another practical feature.

Announcing the new MOD-1375 Adjustable Tablet Mount for iPad, Surface, and other tablets. The mounts are ideal for conducting surveys, lead retrieval, or simple web navigation. The mounts attach directly to the lightbox and can be positioned either inside or outside the LB frame.

In addition, the mounts adjust vertically without tools. As with all Port/Land tablet enclosures, the tablets swivel from portrait to landscape within a 180 degree rotation. See the video below or click here for more details.
