Nomadic Takes a BOW at The Naval Museum Madrid

by Nomadic Display 9. November 2010 01:09

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.

See how Nomadic can make your next Event SPOOKtacular
                    SpOOktacular Event Giveaways
Halloween is right around the corner and I got to thinking about how much Halloween trick or treating resembles trade show attendance. Trick or treaters (your audience) scour the neighborhood (the show floor) looking for tricks (products and services) and receiving treats (event giveaways). Some houses (booths) are more popular than others in the neighborhood because they deliver the goods.  So if you want to be among the popular exhibitors, here are the premium giveaways that will have trades show attendees SCREAMING for more.

Drink and be Merry

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.

Blizzard conditions (Brrr!) in the DC metro area last week doesn't stop production.

by Nomadic Display 20. February 2010 02:03

Happy Friday!

I have one word for you...


I never thought I would say that word in conjunction with the DC Metro Area. As Nomadic endured the biggest snow storm, in DC history with 33". DC came to a standstill last week as 2 blizzards ransacked the Metro area, people stayed in doors and hunkered down with blankets and cocoa. There were snowball fights to plan, igloo's to build, icicles to avoid and tons of shoveling to do. It took us 6 hours to dig out 2 cars.

Nomadic was "officially" shut down for 4 of the 5 work days. But being a manufacturing company we still had product to produce and customers to support. I'm proud to say we have some highly dedicated people working here. To meet our firm deadlines many of our employees braved these blizzard conditions and made it into work. Here are a few photos that were taken around our building last Friday.

Stay Warm and Have a Wonderful Weekend

by Nomadic Display 25. November 2009 23:35
Family gatherings, turkey, endless array of pies and sides — who doesn’t like Thanksgiving? Everything has to be tasty including the “stuffing.”

And as we all know, the preparation behind the scene of cooking Thankgiving dinner can get a little bit demanding. We thought we would share a stuffing recipe from Nomadic’s “Family Recipes” cookbook that you may like to try for your own Thanksgiving dinner. It’s an anonymous contribution that comes with extra sips of fun.

Sausage/Cornbread Stuffing: “Bailey’s Singlemalt”
  • 1 glass - Singlemalt Scotch
  • 1 cup - Celery, diced
  • 1 lb. - Sausage, pan fried
  • 1 - onion, minced
  • ½ cup - Butter
  • ½ cup - Green pepper, chopped
  • 6 cups - Cornbread, crumbled
  • 2 tsp - salt
  • 6 cups - Bread Crumbs, soft
  • ½ tsp - Pepper
  • 2 - Eggs, well beaten
  • 1 ¼ cup - Water
Bake cornbread (sip Scotch). Cool and tear into small pieces (sip Scotch). Fry sausage (sip Scotch) and transfer to plate. Keep drippings (sip Scotch). Cook celery and onions in sausage drippings for 5 minutes (2 to 5 sips of Scotch).

Mix bread crumbs, corn bread, celery, onions, peppers (sip Scotch). Cut up butter and mix with bread mixture (sip Scotch). Mix in cooked sausage (sip Scotch), fold in beaten eggs (sip Scotch) and stir in water (into mixture, not Scotch- sip Scotch).

Stuff in bird or bake in oven at 350° for 30 minutes.

So unwind, relax and have a great time. Happy Thanksgiving from our Nomadic Family to yours!
