I am an avid fan of 60 minutes and recently caught up on the last month of episodes thanks to my trusty DVR. The Jan. 9th segement, “Dead Celebs: A Living for the Dead,” profiled deceased celebrities and their lucrative careers as a “deleb” (dead-celeb). Their post mortality life turns quite profitable with new or re-released albums, licensing projects, and movies. During the segment 60 minutes visited the Licensing International Expo, two Skyline designs were previewed. The picture above (excuse the blurriness - the shot is of my tv using my blackberry camera) is Skyline’s Tube ultra 10×20 inline for the Bruce Lee brand. A very simple 10×20 exhibit with side wings and two spaces for meeting space.
The second design is the John Wayne brand exhibit using Skyline’s tube system in a 20×20 island space. They created an walk in environment, however to not block sight of attendee traffic the exhibit called for transparent sheer graphics as their wall panels.
It is quite evident on why 60 minutes decided to use these exhibits for their segment. Most skyline exhibits are predominantly graphics based which allows for a large and impactful visual, a great tool and source for press.

The 52nd Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) www.astro.org in San Diego, CA at the San Diego Convention Center this past October 31st – November 4th. What a great venue and city and home to the west coast’s Marine Corps Recruiting Depot (MCRD) and Naval Base Coronado.
This year’s ASTRO was by far one of the largest Tradeshows in its’ 52 years. The tradeshow used Halls B2 – G and more than 283 companies exhibited. The amount of square footage that was used for the show was more than 35,000 sq. ft. Also there was more than 12,000 Attendees to explore and conduct business on the show floor.
The ASTRO Show has been around for 52 years and so have some of the companies that Exhibit but there also has been some changes with the turbulent world economic climate. Some new and old companies have emerged as players in the Radiation Oncology market. I was amazed at the large custom modular exhibits being used at the Show. According to my observation there were about 60% had some type of custom modular component to their exhibit property.
Custom Modular primarily means that standardized components are used to use custom configurations and designs. Majority of the booth structure incorporates fabric because of the versatility and cost of use. The fabric can be used in many different ways such as main graphics, layers to provide a 3-D look, double-sided print coverage, sheer drapery, back lighting possibilities and much more. It also can save you money on shipping, drayage and installation and dismantle.
Here are just a few of the companies that seemed to stand out on the Exhibit Floor:
The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System treats tumors anywhere in the body non-invasively; automatically tracking, detecting, and correcting for tumor and patient movement in real-time throughout the treatment.
ACP Composites specializes in the design and fabrication of high quality radiolucent carbon fiber diagnostic imaging components and accessories.

The cat is out of the bag! I shop regularly at Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara, and to be honest, probably more than I should. As I was exiting Nordstrom’s onto the 2nd floor of the mall, I saw the Envoy which was being used by Smart Car. If you haven’t heard of this system already, it won best new product @ Exhibitor Show earlier this spring. The Envoy was designed and developed by Skyline Exhibits to meet the transition of modern exhibiting. Visit here to preview the Envoy video: The Envoy.
Smart Car uses our 4×8 envoy system with a connected overhead ceiling which creates a canopy for their very compact car. The entire display is skinned with full fabric graphics, and the ceiling has cut-outs for halogen lighting strips. Also, Skyline’s popular stratus table is used as their quick workstations; however, they were unmanned when I was there. Maybe it was because I wasn’t there during their “busy” time.
The inside of the Envoy has attached bench seating that can barely bee seen by this picture. While everyone was checking out the Smart Car, I was more interested in testing
out the chairs!
By the way, the Smart Car is not too bad either.
