Case Studies - Rental Exhibit Wins CSB Best Booth Award Chuck Mencke, Marketing Information Technology Manager
"We were breaking into a new market sector so we really wanted to make an impression. We chose to rent a Skyline Inliten® exhibit rather than purchase, to gauge attendees’ reaction to the design. We had our best showing ever."
Case Studies - Creative Socio-Medics Marketing Director Ron Marge
“ We’re a high-tech company, so we were after high-tech look… We achieved that look by developing new exhibits that adhere closely to our brand.”
" Our new exhibit has much more flexibility for both larger and smaller shows and the clean and elegant design provides an excellent environment for talking with prospects and clients…” Case Studies - Paradigm Learning Reduces Operating Costs Marketing strategist Gretchen Covine
" Jasco rented the exhibit architecture – cutting their one-show exhibit costs in half. The result? “The exhibit really made more people notice Jasco. We had a lot of people say, ‘I didn’t know Jasco before I saw you at Pittcon last year.’ It was a fantastic booth.” Case Studies - Jasco Now Seen As “A Player” Harriet Mills, Marketing Manager

IT symposium client: technology consultant Event: This client sponsors an information technology (IT) symposium bi-annually. The event attracts about 7,500 leaders from business and government to hear the latest from IT all-stars. “ It’s great to see a group (Skyline) follow through with such integrity.” Trade Show and Exhibit Manager Exhibit: Skyline products were used to create a series of massive towers for this event. The towers – Skyline Skytruss ® with large fabric graphics – incorporated theatrical lighting and audio-visual effects to awe attendees who visited the 60’ x 120’ space. Interactive kiosks were created with customized cabinetry which supported plasma and touch screens and securely housed computer equipment. The company bought the exhibit for use at their flagship events.
