A good amount of the Silicon Valley will be in San Francisco this week at VM World. VMworld is probably one of the most exciting shows to attend as it always guarantees awesome energy as they lead our tech world. I was on site for the opening on Sunday and was able to snap pictures of key players of the show and some awesome booths. The show goes until Wednesday of this week!

ElectronVault of Woodside, CA partnered with Skyline Exhibits Bay Area for their trade show debut at the International Electric Vehicle Symposium in Los Angeles. ElectronVault invents and licenses technologies that enable large-scale battery systems for electric vehicles and renewable energy systems to be manufactured, sold, and serviced. At EV26 they exhibited in a prime positioned and unique 10×20 island space at the Los Angeles Convention Center. At Skyline we decided the pair of our Envoy system would be an ideal look and feel for the vehicle technology industry.

“What thrilled me about working with Jessica Orias and her team, was that very quickly, they understood our corporate image and how to translate that into a beautiful and effective booth. We received many compliments on our booth each day of the show, but most importantly, it was a good working and conversational space for my team and our booth visitors. Thank you!”

After visiting the Exhibitor Show 2011 a few weeks ago, it has become apparent that the industry has morphed to the Skyline model of custom modular. Because of that I started thinking more about the logistical costs associated with owning an exhibit.
With systems becoming lighter in weight in general why not demand that the logistical cost be associated with any exhibit design. Because we all now look at every penny of our trade show budget why not attack the single item (logistics) that creates the most demand on our marketing dollar!
In the example shown we have designed an custom-modular Skyline exhibit that comes ships in only 2 pieces. One 4′ x 4′ x 8′ crate & one monitor case 50″ x 24″ x 46″ (AV anvil case not pictured)
The difference alone in shipping, drayage, and installation and dismantle is $25,000 cost per show. Multiply that over the life time of an exhibit the numbers becomes staggering. The exhibit shown below is priced at $56,000. You can justify the cost of a new exhibit after just 2 shows. And keep in mind this does not include storage, in and out fees, material handling fees, and labor to upkeep your exhibit.
So demand from your design team that they incorporate in the design process the logistical demands of the exhibit. I know that you will find that justifying a new exhibit purchase will become much easier in your next marketing meeting.

Please do not call the Australian Koala, not to be confused with the well known Sloths of South America, a bear because they are in actuality not related to the bear family and Koala’s tend to be very sensitive animals. Contrary to the erroneous meaning of the Koalas name, “don’t drink”, there were plenty of celebratory beverages being consumed in the Australia booth at the annual 2010 Bio International Convention. The Australian Trade Commission invited a group of the top biotech firms in the country to attend under a united 40×50 ft space and Skyline was tasked with designing an atmosphere that would creatively represent Australian culture and style while also providing each vendor a functional and compelling presentation area. The design incorporated Skyline’s new modern Envoy product for the demo stations with a highly visible arching Australian sign – with a Boomer or as we American’s call it a Kangaroo – attracting attendees from throughout the hall. The Koala is a humble character but we are slightly less in proclaiming we aced this design (ace is slang for “excellent” for those keeping track).

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.

Envoy- Exhibitor Shows’ Best New Product is now available in both purchase and rental solutions
As of July 1st Skyline Displays, Bay Area new custom modular trade show booth solution became available both to sell and rent to our clients and prospective clients. The reason for the buzz on this product is that it is meeting the ever present need for a true custom modular look. Over the years, the industry had morphed to lighter weight modular exhibits. Typically these designs consist of extruded aluminum poles, or truss with large format fabrics graphics. Because Envoy embraces a different hardware structure it won the best “New Product” at the Exhibitor Show this February, 2010.
Envoy gives a fresh approach to this without the “pole” system. Envoys’ contemporary design keeps up with the new trends in the field of industrial design and architecture. In evokes the look and feel of today’s most in demand brands. Think Apple and Herman Miller
If you’re looking for a new fresh look in our industry do yourself a favor and check out the video in the attached file. You can also sign in and get a brochure online. Or just e-mail us for a hard copy of the brochure.
This is an exciting new product. Please feel free to download the brochure.
