Shared Knowledge University Invitation | Fall 2018

August 20th, 2018 COMMENTS

Fall 2018 Shared Knowledge University

November in Portland, OR. Overcast. Rainy. Brisk. Nine games into the Portland Trail Blazers schedule. And, if you believe Kevin, the U of O Ducks football team is undefeated and headed to a national championship. Sounds like the ideal time to visit the Rose City for Shared Knowledge University. 

As always, seats are limited. Contact Jen LaBruzza (jen@classicexhibits.com) if you have questions. See below for details and click on the image to watch the official SKU video (nice job Glenna!).

Gravitee One-Step Tower with Closet | GK-5156 Disassembly Video

July 2nd, 2018 COMMENTS

Short Introduction

The Gravitee One-Step Tower in the video was built for Shared Knowledge University. It’s a GK-5156 which re-configures into a GK-5155 and GK-2010. We used the tower as a training tool for Classic Distributors to show them: 

  • How Gravitee connects and stacks without tools or loose parts
  • How SEG fabric and direct print graphics attach
  • How easily it disassembles (and by extension assembles)
  • The locking closet door
  • The overall stability of the tower
  • Finally, how the panels nest for shipping

The video shows three Classic Production Employees casually dismantling it. We increased the playback to 4X. Note:  The inline structure with flat and curved frames to the right of the tower is also Gravitee.

Thoughts from Shared Knowledge University | June 2018

June 30th, 2018 COMMENTS

What Makes Classic Exhibits Different? 

Returning home from our Spring/Summer session of Shared Knowledge University, I was struck by a quote from the airline magazine. It was an article on food. This particular restaurateur, when asked about the time and preparation that goes into making food for his customers, was quoted as saying, “We want to engage in life, not just a transaction.” Whoa! After spending two days engaging with an exceptional group of exhibit house and strategic partners, I couldn’t have described the experience any better myself.

It brings to mind something that I am often asked about, “What makes Classic Exhibits different?” It’s my opportunity to speak about our culture of sharing and creating. Sharing our innovation and production capabilities to help your clients engage their audience on the trade show floor is a primary focus for us. It’s never about rolling up to bin A12 and pulling a complete 10×10, 10×20, or island exhibit design off the shelf and sending it off to Las Vegas or Chicago. It’s about choices. Laminate, graphics, monitors, hanging signs, charging tables. The list for design and engagement opportunities goes on. I think we are hitting our stride in that way. The options for creating and building a design are vast. Helping our partners do this consistently, timely, and at a fair price is what we strive for.

Are there transactions involved? Sure there are! But we have the ability and I dare say the responsibility about making it so much more than “Show me the money!”

I can’t thank our partners enough for taking time out of their busy worlds to join us for SKU. It’s validating to say the least to have a group nod their heads and say, “Wow! This is exactly what you said it would be.” And to all of our partners who have yet to experience a Shared Knowledge University session… the November SKU is just around the corner! No seriously! It is!

Our sincere thanks to everyone who attended and participated in Shared Knowledge University. Wishing you much success in 2018.
