Personal Protection Equipment and Together Again Expo | July 2020 Newsletter

July 17th, 2020 COMMENTS

Your PPE Wingman

Personal Protection guidelines are starting to unfold for schools, universities, medical facilities, and businesses. We are deep in that mix and know it very well. Currently, we have about twenty schools under our belt, eight banks, and several hospitals. And the requests are growing exponentially.

PPE is an immediate need for these organizations, and they are desperate for your guidance and expertise. They don’t want tacky acrylic barriers held together with Velcro and unfinished wood. They want attractive, professional solutions.

You can significantly increase your closing percentage by asking us to participate in the call with your client. We’re available, whether you need assistance on product specifications, design, or simply a wingman to close the deal.

PPE Business is Local

From our experience, all PPE business is local. Your greatest asset is leveraging local relationships, personal friendships, and existing clients to find new opportunities. People love doing business with friends, acquaintances and vendors who support them. In most cases, they won’t find or contact you. You have to find them by calling, emailing, or visiting their website or social media pages. 

The planning process has started for schools, churches, banks, museums, retail locations and offices so the timing is ideal. Become the local expert for PPE products. We’re here to help you any way we can.

Exhibit Design Search Updates

Whether you call it shifting, pivoting, or evolving, we aren’t standing still. There are Five New Galleries in EDS: 

  1. PlaceLyft Office Systems:  Modular Personal Protection Office Solutions
  2. Hand Sanitizer Stands: Heavy-Duty Stand Tough™ Sanitizer Stands
  3. Safety Dividers: Customizable Aluminum and Acrylic/Sintra Partitions
  4. Office/Retail Lightboxes: SuperNova LED Lightboxes
  5. Interactive Displays: In Partnership with Blue Pony

New Rental Savings

Jim Shelman and his team have made extensive updates to the (3) Rental Galleries. New designs, more details, and even a SALE. 

The designs include SuperNova lightboxes, Gravitee inlines and islands, and even promotional prices on our newest portable system, Symphony. We expect rentals, especially customized rentals, to be active once trade show return as exhibitors choose smaller and more affordable options.

See all 12 Rental Designs on sale in Exhibit Design Search.

The NEW Symphony System

Designing a portable display system in today’s ultra-competitive market takes guts. Not only must it be durable, easy-to-assembly, and (preferably) tool-less, but it must also feature accessories like monitor/tablet mounts, workstations, counters, and storage. And if that wasn’t enough, it must be attractive and represent a real value.

In January 2020, Classic Exhibits will introduce Symphony, a portable system with over 30 mix and match configurations, seamless graphics, and dramatic shapes. Symphony will be both familiar and unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. That takes guts!  Coming Soon!

2020 Branded Exhibit Design Search

A few days ago, you received an email about the revised Branded EDS Program. We listened and made changes to the program introduced last year, including adding an earned rebate incentive. We made the incentive reasonable so most Classic Distributor Partners could reach those sales levels easily.

Best of all, if your wholesale sales were at least $150,000 in 2019
and you have an active EDS website, then you won’t receive an
invoice for 2020. Nothing. Nada. Gratis.

If you have questions about your existing Exhibit Design Search, or you would like to add a branded EDS to your website, contact Mel White, Jen LaBruzza, or Harold Mintz. They can explain the features and benefits of branded EDS sites, including our strategic EDS partnerships with Optima, CORT, Brumark, and Display Supply and Lighting.

Just Like the Wizard of OZ

At Classic Exhibits, we’re kinda like the Wizard of Oz. We love to create display magic, but we do it hiding behind a curtain as much as possible. On occasion we pull that curtain back, like at EXHIBITORLIVE or award programs. Otherwise, we’re invisible.

Recently, we agreed to a corporate profile in Exhibit City News, which we’ve never done before in any publication. It was in the September/October issue. If you didn’t get a chance to read it, here’s the online version: Classic Exhibits Inc.: An Industry Chameleon.

If we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that people find it challenging to describe who we are and what we do, even our most loyal distributor partners. The article does a good job of making that clearer and includes quotes from Kevin Carty, Katina Rigall Zipay, and Mel White.

EDPA Access 2019

Kevin Carty and Jen LaBruzza will be attending EDPA Access in Tucson, AZ on December 4-6. Ask about several exciting custom projects (Star Wars, The Walking Dead, and corporate branding). There’s a lot going on at Classic and even more changes coming in 2020.
