Thank you for coming to see the latest innovations Skyline has designed for trade show marketers. This is an interactive workshop – I’ll be walking around the room showing you the various new products when we have a sample here, and ask you to come right up to the products, even get your hands on them. I hope you find that we’ve created new products that fit your needs better than your current displays – even if they are Skyline displays!
Skyline has a proud history of innovation, with over 70 patents to our name. We’ve accelerated our new product development to create more solutions, better solutions, and to do so faster.
Today we are going to look at 9 new products Skyline has introduced just in the last year. These products are mostly used for inline exhibits, either as banner stands or 10 foot displays. We also introduced 3 new accessories that can be used in both inline and island exhibits.
Banner Stands have become much more popular in recent years, as they offer lighter weight and greater flexibility. Improvements in graphics have fueled the breakthrough. We’re introducing three new banner stands that give you more value and design choices.
In looking at the Myriad Banner stand there were three main premises that we designed this product to meet: -Design – this is a product that looks like none other. Clean lines, tight tolerances, great materials -Merchandising – how can a banner stand to more than just show a graphic. This banner stand was designed to do much more than just show a graphic -Quality – designed with the end-user in mind, super-durable, better packaging than anything else on the market You can use a Myriad banner stand by itself, or combine three to make a 10-foot backwall.
According to Exhibitor Magazine, about 80% of exhibitors are manufacturers – they make something. Yet banner stands, while offering great portability, easy set up, and graphic impact, don’t let you show product. We changed that. Each Myriad banner stand can hold up to 4 accessory poles, which can then support various product and literature shelving options. • Myriad is the most flexible & unique banner stand on the market. It can provide all this: – messaging – multiple repositionable shelf shapes for product merchandising – literature display – additional board mounted graphics options – easy graphic exchange
To make a 10-foot display that’s even lighter weight and less expensive, we invented this center panel. With the center banner, you avoid the weight, bulk, and expense of a 3 rd full housing for a 10 foot display. The Myriad Backwall ships in just 2 lightweight Myriad shipping cases.
Unlike our other banner stands this package IS intended to be the shipping package for the banner stand. This is a huge convenience and cost savings for you. There are actually three different shipping bags: -Short banner stand bag --holds the banner stand, pole, a light, a literature pocket, up to four graphic clips, and up to 4 short and 4 long accessory poles -Tall banner stand bag --Holds everything in the short bag, but adds an accessory tray to the top (as pictured) above --the accessory tray holds either 2 spanning shelves or 5 smaller shelves as well as 4 short or long accessory poles --more information on the accessories will be in the following slides -Accessory case --Holds three accessory trays --is the same physical size as the short banner stand bag

The Myriad banner stand finally lets you display products and graphics together with an elegant banner stand.
MOVIE: Talk about the packaging and the variety of accessories, the easy set up, the versatility, and the ease of dismantle through the movie.
The new Duet™ Banner Stand offer design and value in perfect harmony. Why is that? The Duet™ Banner Stand has a Double-sided graphic on a single panel. That’s a great value when you get an extra image on the back of the same graphic in the same housing as a regular banner stand. With only one housing, that reduces bulk, weight and cost.
So you can have two messages on one banner stand. That lets you market to two different vertical markets, or market two different products.
Or just use the banner stand when you need a message seen from both sides.
And you can combine three to make a 10 foot backwall. Again, you just turn around the banner stands, and you can have an entirely different message on a 10 foot display.
Comes in 33 inch and 48 inch widths.
The most unique banner stand available! Skyline's Shapes Collection Banner Stand gives you visual impact and depth with layered graphics profiled to complement your message and brand.
It's lightweight and a breeze to set up - simply unroll the graphic panel from its base! So while you get banner stand ease of use, the Shapes Collection Banner Stand also gives you a more sophisticated, three-dimensional look sure to catch the eye.
The combination of 3 units side by side, potentially with different-shaped front graphics, creates a more intriguing look than you thought possible with retractable banner stands.
There are 4 shapes available for the front panel – we can help design a unit that works best for your brand and your art. The Shapes Collection banner stand – an elegant addition to the world of portable, easy to set up banner stands.
Displays dedicated to 10 foot booths are still the choice for most exhibitors. These three new choices bring more innovation, versatility, and visual impact to the 10 foot space.
Small but powerful LED lights add the attention-getting power of backlit mural graphics to the world-famous Mirage pop-up display.
• Lights full 10-ft & 8-ft graphic mural, one panel to all.
• LED lights are more energy efficient and more durable than fluorescent lights, and are “street legal” in Las Vegas, compared to over-75 watt Halogens. • Full 10-foot lighting package fits into two ride-along shipping bags or one hard Mirage case • Ride-along bags attach to Mirage cases so user transports just 2 items – adds just 20 lbs to each case. This new product has won Skyline’s own New Product Contests, both at the Exhibitor Show and our online contest.
Your 10 foot display just got even easier to set up! The Tradewinds Fabric Pop-Up display has a durable, pre-attached fabric graphic mural that sets up without tools. Fabric graphics stay on the lightweight aluminum frame for easy takedown and packing. The graphics are made of a wrinkle-resistant stretch-knit fabric. Graphics are easily replaceable.
You'll be exhibiting in minutes! Simply expand the aluminum frame with the graphic mural already attached and lock in place with built-in connectors. Integral, low-profile feet provide additional stability.
The flat version can be designed either with or without end panels.
Similar to the flat version, curved displays have a wrinkle resistant stretch knit fabric cover that provides a taut fitted mural that offers seamless branding. The fabric is washable or dry cleanable and flame retardant. Packaging options include a soft carrying bag with handle or hard shipping case that converts into a case table allowing additional functionality. Also, Halogen or incandescent lights are available.
The DesignView Presentation System is one of the most innovative products Skyline has introduced in years. DesignView makes it easier and more affordable than ever to project large-scale, changeable graphics and video in your 10-foot display, so you always have show-specific graphics.
DesignView won the Buyer’s Choice Award at EXHIBITOR2009, which is their new product contest. The judges were impressed by “the way in which this system bundled together large-scale video projection capabilities in an affordable package for a 10 x 10 foot exhibit.” This is the third time Skyline has won the best new product award at Exhibitor Show.
You can even change your graphic message during the show!
Skyline continues to add design choices and greater functionality with new accessories. Most of these accessories can be used in both back wall and island exhibits.
Designed exclusively for Skyline, Ceramic Metal Halide (CMH) lighting offers many advantages over standard exhibit lighting: Bright, Crisp Light Makes Your Exhibit Graphics ‘Pop’ CMH lights are white and bright! With CMH, your graphics and message will always stand out and look their best.
Cut Electrical Costs by up to 80% Electrical power at trade shows can be expensive and CMH can save you money. One 70w CMH light is almost twice as bright as a 200w halogen light, meaning you require fewer fixtures and fewer watts to light your exhibit. Environmentally Friendly CMH lights require 1/5 the power of halogen lights and contain none of the mercury found in compact fluorescent bulbs. Fully Approved In Las Vegas! Skyline CMH lights are fully approved for use in Las Vegas venues that currently ban most halogen lights. With Skyline CMH lights, you’ll never have to scramble to find alternate lighting in the #1 trade show destination city in North America.
On island exhibits, you can save on electricity and on installation and dismantle with Ceramic Metal Halide One 70w CMH light is almost twice as bright as a 200w halogen light, meaning you require fewer fixtures and fewer watts to light your exhibit.
Tapered fabric table: Stylish table with custom fabric graphics Get valuable work surface for displaying product or taking leads along with additional branding. Quick and easy set up Just two connections! Simply connect the base plate and table top to the frame and secure with an Allen wrench. Attach the tension-fit fabric cover and you'll be exhibiting in minutes.
This elegant table is built by combining Skyline’s Tube Ultra section with a base and a top, covered by a fabric graphic for additional branding surface. Small fluorescent lights attach for attention-getting backlighting. You can use this table in inline and island exhibits.
Convey Your Message with Style The Convey Information Placard is a compact, sturdy, stylish kiosk that goes just about anywhere you need a sign. Small footprint yet stable. Smaller and lighter-weight than kiosks offers many messaging options. You can use it in backwalls, islands, next to key products, or to identify areas in your exhibit. You can even use it outside of trade shows.
You can leave the structure showing or cover it with graphics. You can put a small graphic atop it, or a literature shelf, or even a 12-inch digital picture frame. The digital picture frame can run images off of a thumb drive or other digital media card. The player is versatile and supports many digital formats. It supports JPG and BMP photo formats, MP3 and WMA audio formats and MPEG1 video format. The player supports the use of SD/MMC/XD/CF/Memory cards, and USB Memory Slot. Convey™ is offered in gloss black or textured silver with matching accessories. Convey’s flexibility in design lets you change the functionality, by just buying a new accessory. All four accessories work with either concave or convex shape. The set up is fast and easy. In less than 5 minutes you have a complete display. The hardware is comprised of a steel base, convex or concave arch, and an angled bracket.
The base detaches for packing, as do the graphics and the digital picture frame.
