March: Display of the Month

Posted by Brandon Lackey on Mar 13, 2015 11:46:00 AM

PAXPRIME, PAXEAST, PAXSOUTH, PAXAUS…where did it all start?  Seattle, 2004, when the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Sure there are comic shows, anime, Star Wars and the like.  But PAX is dedicated to just gaming and shows no stop in sight.  What started as one show in a Seattle suburb has doubled every  year and now sells out in minutes.
So where is ExpoDisplays involved in this megashow?  It’s via our dealer Studio Blue.  We invent and re-invent exciting displays for industry leading Logitech.  Look around your desk or at home or your car, most of us have a piece of Logitech technology someone.  And major brands like Logitech need major exhibits, and they choose MultiQuad.


MultiQuad provides the flexibility they need to reconfigure and reinvent for multiple shows in multiple cities.  Their MultiQuads support a variety of accessories such as media mounts, product showcases and back lit panels.  The preview of the PAXEAST displays in our facility a few weeks ago, left their trade show team very happy. So if you you’re your friends win the ticket lottery to get to a PAX show, check out the customized Logitech MultiQuad and its massive gaming table…that is, if you can see it from all of the people.


Deeper with Threads

Posted by Brandon Lackey on Mar 16, 2015 3:40:00 PM


At ExhibitorLive! 2015 we showed our newest product introduction, Threads™!

It was a great opportunity to show other industry professionals how versatile Threads™ can be, and how much design freedom one can have with each Threads™ element. The show was a success, and it was so much fun showing people our new innovative portable exhibit system!


The concept of Threads™ is simple:

An ultra-lightweight, easy-to-assemble frame with a 360º seamless graphic.


The frames are built with thumb screws, and graphics are attached with Velcro® and a zipper. Elements can be positioned where, when and how YOU want them, giving you true design freedom. Threads™ eliminates the design limitaitons imposed by conventional, fixed-configuration displays.


Also, elements can be arranged so that your message is viewable from any angle, increasing the time you are seen by visitors. These elements can also be rotated instantly during a presentation. You can show attention-grabbing visuals on one side and techinical data on the other.

See for yourself why assembling Threads™ is as easy as a zipper:

Pantone: Spring 2015

Posted by Georgie Allen on Mar 17, 2015 11:19:00 AM

What color is your happy place?

Pantone® has come out with its color pallete for this spring season, and there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. A mix of colorful brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals.

The soft cool hues, blended with subtle warm tones creates a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.

For me personally, I am in love with the Scuba Blue®. This is a bold but subtle color, and gives a refreshing tropical feel. Glacier Gray® and  Titanium®  are also among my favorites this season. They blend well with both softer and bright color hues.


Color of the year:


Marsala®: Pantone’s pick for this year, this is the big one. Marsala is a timeless shade of red with distinct brown undertones, and was something of a surprise this year. Classy pick, Pantone®!

Marsala for Graphic Design

A rich contrasting color, Marsala is ideal for use in graphic design and packaging. Eye-catching, but not overwhelming or bright, consumers are immediately drawn to the hue, making it an alluring shade at point-of-purchase. As packaging becomes increasingly more artistic, Marsala will be a natural fit for both high- and low-tech materials, including on-shelf periodicals as well as printed assets, like calendars and stationery.

Rebranding Your Booth

Posted by Brandon Lackey on May 1, 2015 1:06:00 PM

When our longtime ExpoDisplays customer MEDSEEK announced a name change, their custom trade show display was on our mind. This Birmingham-based company name sported a strong logo with an energetic orange color that truly gave their company a strong image.

The new name, “Influence Health”, is meant to reflect their ongoing success in delivering healthcare’s only integrated digital consumer engagement and activation platform. The new Influence Health logo and colors consists of cool and clean colors, resulting in a clean and trusted company image.


Now here’s a look into how we transformed their custom display to fit their new branding:



And now, the AFTER



WOW!  Big change, right?  Here’s a look at the conference room.


Whether you invested in a massive custom exhibit such as this one or you do a small few shows every year, you know the importance of tracking.   Download this easy sheet as another tool to measure your performance.

NSLM Opening

**For Immediate Release**



Birmingham, AL –


After years of planning, the Negro Southern League Museum is opening today, Friday, August 28.  This project was designed locally by Method-1 Interiors, a division of ExpoDisplays.  The 5,000+ square foot exhibit area was designed by Method-1, built by their skilled craftsman on site at the Birmingham facility, and installed at the new museum by the team that specializes in museum mounting and installation.


The museum highlights Birmingham’s history in African-American baseball.  The amazing collection covers national and local memorabilia and with a tremendous time span of history.  The museum features many interactive exhibits.   Dr. Layton Revel, the Founder of the Center for Negro League Research, is the Historian of the expansive collection.  Featured in the collection are thousands of signed baseballs, game used equipment and authentic uniforms including a 1940s game worn uniform of Satchel Paige from Bob Feller’s historic barnstorming tour.


“This is unlike any other museum in the United States.  Method-1 took anything I could have ever imagined for this museum and surpassed it tenfold!  I knew the talent that existed here but after seeing their creativity put into action this way, I was completely blown away.  They did a brilliant job of taking our story, the artifacts, the history and turning it into something truly unbelievable,” said Layton Revel in response to Method-1’s execution of the project.



Grand Opening festivities will be held TODAY outside of the Negro Southern League Museum.  In attendance will be Mayor William Bell, Dr. and Mrs. Layton Revel, other Birmingham dignitaries, former ball players and the creative staff of ExpoDisplays and Method-1.
