Nomadic Takes a BOW at The Naval Museum Madrid

See how Nomadic can create an ocean of opportunity for your event marketing program
Nomadic Display creates an OCEAN of opportunities for the Spanish Navy Marines. The Infantry needed a platform to expand their mission critical recruiting efforts. The Armada's existing custom displays were too heavy and cumbersome to set up so the Spanish Navy Marines sought a lighter weight solution. They wanted a custom exhibit that would be easy to assemble and reconfigure to accommodate varied applications.

After reviewing hundreds of design proposals countrywide, The Spanish Navy Marines selected their premier supplier and issued marching orders to MSB Massa Barzano.  The local supplier, MSB Massa Barzano called on Nomadic to assist in the design and implementation of 20 custom displays. The final design enables the Spanish recruitment fleet to use the displays alone or combine them for use in larger venues.

Magnetic graphic panels promote the Spanish Navy Marine’s slogan: “An Ocean of Opportunities” and are easily interchangeable to accomodate different target audiences. 

The shipping cases were seamlessly transformed into backlit graphic kiosks and converted into counters for product display.

All of the easily portable displays made their debut at the esteemed Naval Museum Madrid where key stakeholders remarked on the quality, ease of assembly and versatility of the custom exhibits.  The Spanish Navy Marine's custom displays will continue to promote infantry enlistment
in their anticipated installation at 5 Naval bases throughout Spain.

Press releases are an excellent promotional vehicle to gain market exposure for your next event. Whether you are using an outside vendor to submit company  wide press releases or are pushing them out on your own, below is a list of things to remember before your next release hits the wire; this is information that is often left off press releases, yet sought after by journalists and other key constituents.

1) The name and location of the show you are exhibiting at.  How many times you have exhibited at this particular show in the past? Are you a veteran exhibitor? Are you a sponsor? If so what level of sponsorship?

2) Your booth number and the first and last names of the people that will be manning your booth. Journalists and others use this reference to map out in-person visits.

3) A contact name and cell phone number of the person responsible for managing your presence at the show (most likely you). Journalists often need quick access to an on-site spokesperson or expert when drafting a story.

4) Links to your Web site or specific links to product information. If your website has an events calender provide the url .  If you are tweeting from the event, provide the journalist your Twitter username so that he/she may monitor the event activity remotely. 

5) Logos, product shot visuals and compelling booth photographs. A picture says a thousand words. Photos and logos provide much needed graphic elements for journalists while making your news stand out from the rest of exhibitors.  Make sure to provide any information regarding new product launches or special offers that you are featuring in your booth.

Knocking out the knock-offs: How do you choose the right pop-up in today's market?

by Nomadic Display 6. May 2010 00:43
I was speaking with a new salesperson recently about all the changes happening throughout the pop-up segment of our industry. Imports driving prices down. Consolidation. Relationships between Manufacturer, Distributor and Customers torn down and then reinventing themselves. The Internet — the only constant seen throughout the past 30 years is the presence of change itself.

After a few minutes of what was probably a boring history lesson for this young salesperson, I was intrigued by his first question— if the pop-up market is getting more and more aggressive in lowering costs, why is Nomadic launching accessories that seem to add to the average cost of a pop-up display? Excellent question, I told my young squire.

The vast majority of today’s pop-up displays – and there are dozens if not hundreds that I can see, are being marketed as one thing and one thing only… large graphic backwalls with little more functionality than providing its owner with a temporary, portable billboard. If that is how all pop-ups are being judged, then why WOULDN’T a savvy buyer want to buy the lowest priced version that provides that capability?

In order to answer the salespersons query, I had to go back to my history lesson. More than 34 years ago, when Nomadic’s founder, Ted Ziegler, invented the world’s first pop-up display system, he over-engineered it. Back in 1975, Ted wasn’t trying to make a graphic backwall. Ted was trying to make portable buildings. These portable buildings (temporary field hospitals for the military) would require stability and strength while still offering ease and speed of set-up. The rest, as they say, is history.

It’s Ted’s original engineering that provides Instand the strength to support more weight than any other pop-up on the market. This over-abundance of strength has allowed Nomadic to recently develop a line of new accessories for the Instand that transform “a simple graphic backwall” into a multi-functional display system that just happens to be lightweight and easy to set-up.

So, I explained to the young salesperson, the reason Nomadic has launched this new line of accessories in a world of low-cost pop-ups can be summed up like this— Instand should not be judged as a pop-up display system at all. Rather, it should be judged as a highly customizable display solution that happens to come from pop-up stock.

And now you can have the world's most popular pop-up at historically low prices.

Lions, tigers and... oh my!

by Nomadic Display 14. April 2010 02:14
Sunday was a gorgeous day here in Washington with a bright blue sky, warm sunshine and cool, dry air...the first taste of Spring. My husband and I wanted to spend the afternoon outdoors, get a little exercise and reconnect with our inner child. So we decided to pop the top on the Miata and drive down to the National Zoo.

An hour later we were at the Panda pavilion. Mei Xiang, our expectant mother, was snoozing in the sun in a corner spot making it difficult to see her.

Next we headed over to the elephant house. It was undergoing construction...we wondered where elephants, hippos and giraffes go while their home is being renovated? We walked around to see the gorillas and then the big cats.... lions, tigers.

Went down to watch the sea lions show off their superior swimming and sunbathing skills.


The sounds of live entertainment grew louder as we approached the center of the park. Vendors were selling crafts and refreshments. Imagine my surprise when we came upon a US Dept of Agriculture tent with an Instand display! The giant graphic was an illustration promoting nutrition. As you can see it certainly did its job attracting youngsters.


In my twenty-four years with Nomadic, I have to admit it wasn't my first surprise encounter with a Nomadic display. Instand shows up everywhere...even at the Zoo! No wonder it’s the most popular portable in the world.

Now you can have your very own at historically low prices. Check out our selection today.
