An Interview with Jim Shelman, GM of Classic Rental Solutions

October 2nd, 2018 COMMENTS

Every week, Tim Patterson, a.k.a. Tradeshow Guy, conducts an interview on his Monday Morning Coffee video/audio broadcast. Sometimes it’s someone from the trade show community, but more often it’s an expert on various business topics. It’s my go-to stop every Monday morning. 

This week Tim interviewed our own Jim Shelman, the GM of Classic Rental Solutions. They chatted about rental trends, the evolving reasons to rent, and why purchase and rentals are not so different. The interview starts at 4:15. Enjoy!

August 12th, 2018 COMMENTS

We rarely URGE you to VIEW a blog post. We invite and entice. But this time, we’re URGING.

After considerable time, effort, and imagination, we developed a lightbox. But not just any lightbox, one two inches deep with all the wonderful features of the Gravitee One Step System. No Tools. No Loose Parts. See for yourself in this video that introduces the Gravitee Modular Lightbox. 

Expect to see Gravitee LB designs throughout Q3 and Q4 via Design Monday, both as a purchase and rental. Pricing will be available later this month. For those who have seen and/or ordered the Gravitee System, you already know its benefits compared to other modular wall systems.

Gravitee One-Step Modular System™ — Summer Sales Tips #3

June 15th, 2017 COMMENTS

Measured in Inches, Not Millimeters

Most modular wall systems were designed for European trade shows where tools and time are in abundance. North American trade shows prioritize speed, modularity, and easy assembly because time and tools cost money. The Gravitee One Step™ Modular System assembles without tools or loose parts. The double-sided panels connect with the attached clips. You’ll never fumble for a loose bullet connector or search for a special tool.

Gravitee’s lightweight aluminum panels accept both direct print and SEG graphics. SEG graphics never need to be clipped, so north or south, east or west, it’s one continuous run ensuring a perfect fit every single time.
