Quick Staging Solutions For Your Awards Show

by Gwen Parsons 6. January 2016 18:15

Virtually every industry – large or small – hosts an awards program. Awards are a great way to generate publicity for those who sponsor and receive them. After all, what’s not to like about recognition? Awards make us proud of ourselves or our company, serve as a reward for outstanding achievement and offer us an opportunity to celebrate our accomplishments.

Some awards programs are glamorous, black tie affairs. The Golden Globes, the Oscars, the Tony Awards, and the Emmys are among a few examples that air on network television. Many of us eagerly gather with family or friends to watch these star studded affairs.

Most of us don’t know all of the details that go into producing an awards program. Take something as simple as the “red carpet”. Guests pose for the press as they arrive. So the event needs a backdrop at the entrance with its name, sponsor logos, etc. Ideally, the backdrop needs to be set-up quickly, provide a smooth graphic finish for the cameras and be easily taken down afterward. For these reasons among others, the Kennedy Center chose Nomadic Instand® pop up displays to form a 20’ backwall for the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors event.



This year’s honorees included singer-songwriter Carole King, filmmaker George Lucas, actress and singer Rita Moreno, conductor Seiji Ozawa, and actress and Broadway star Cicely Tyson.

Other awards programs are all about peer recognition. For instance, the In-House Agency Forum (IHAF) honors creative excellence in print and digital media produced by in-house staff.



Their awards event draws members for an evening of cocktails and hors d’oeurves, the chance to view creative work by contemporaries and maybe come away with a trophy. Winners are scored by a panel of judges and selected to receive Gold, Silver and Honorable Mention awards.



Every program has its own challenges, some of which may be similar to those of the annual IHAF Awards. There was no storage available on-site. Dozens of entries had to be put on display for viewing in print and on screen. There was just one day for installation and everything had to be dismantled the same evening after the event.

Zap Creative helped the IHAF put on an awesome awards show. Zap rented their Nomadic modular wall system to mount all of the print entries. The system is fast to set-up and take down. Frames ship pre-assembled and connect without tools. Connectors pre-installed within each frame draw them together side-by-side. Presto, you’re ready to show.

Award shows are events that are fun for attendees. But the people behind-the-scenes that make it all look so effortless are the real heroes that deserve a round of applause, or a toast or maybe even a trophy.

The more you learn about another person’s interests and experiences, the more that person will want to learn about yours.

Four Displays in One! Making Your Trade Show Booth More Cost-Effective

by Gwen Parsons 29. January 2013 21:02

In a sea of trade show booths, we know how important it is to make the best first impression you possibly can. Visitors are constantly being
 bombarded with visuals as they walk through a trade show venue, so you
 want to do your best to make sure yours is the display that catches their 
eye.

To help you do just that we're pleased to announce our new line of innovative fabric display solutions, Inspire. One of the most attractive features of the 
Inspire series is its convertibility. The canopy can be altered into four 
different shapes, all using the same cover. This makes it easy to attract attention with different designs without having to buy a number of different types of displays.

Exhibitors can have a unique look from show to show. Inspire’s innovative canopy converts into four different shapes using the same tension fabric canopy cover – its like getting four display designs for the price of one. Inspire is a budget-stretching tension fabric display solution because it's scalable, enabling exhibitors to get an upscale, custom modular look but at an affordable and competitive price. Get the latest features and functions in the form of interchangeable accessories, scalability, on case packing/shipping for a basic unit, and easy set-up.

Additionally, options like iPad stands, monitors, product pedestals, waterfall brackets, slatwall and more mount easily to aluminum extrusions. Mix and match or rearrange them to suit different presentation requirements.

A ten foot Inspire expands into an impressive twenty foot inline and converts into a kiosk or even a table top with the purchase of additional fabric graphic panels. Plus Inspire is delivered ready to accept a second fabric graphic panel on the back side for double the presentation impact.

The new “Inspire” line of fabric displays offer exhibitors an upscale aesthetic at a refreshingly competitive price tag. Get all the details of our new Inspire line here.

 

 

Nomadic's Backdrop, Fit For The Queen

by Kat Shea 7. June 2011 18:27

Britain's Queen Elizabeth graciously accepted an invitation to visit the Republic of Ireland from its President, Mary McAleese. The 85 year old Queen was the FIRST British Monarch to visit Ireland in over a CENTURY.  Her landmark visit included a stop at the infamous Croke Park stadium in Dublin.  Accompanied by her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, The Queen received a gift from the President of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), Christy Cooney.  The GAA oversees the national sport of Ireland: Hurling, which dates back over 3,000 years.  Hurling combines skills from baseball, lacrosse and field hockey into one action packed sport.  The Queen graciously accepted hallmarks of Gaelic sport: a stick called a hurley and a ball called a sliotar.

This once in a life time event called for the historic presentation to be set against none other than a Nomadic Display.  The vibrant GAA set design, seen by millions of viewers featured an intricate logo accentuated by luminous yellow light.  Another example of how Nomadic displays go b-e-y-o-n-d just trade shows to provide branded platforms for special events. Visit our entertainment gallery to see other high profile clients that have used Nomadic mobile presentations at live events.
