Trade shows open up our world life experience. Sure we conduct business but trade shows and events also give us the opportunity to enjoy local experiences. On your next trip to New Orleans, make a stop at the National WWII Museum. Receiving a half million visitors each year may help explain why it was voted the #1 tourist attraction in New Orleans by TripAdvisor.
Dedicated to telling the story of the American experience in WWII, the Museum offers a compelling portrayal of why it was fought, how it was won and what it means to us today. Over the past 15 years the Museum has grown into a six acre campus with an expansive collection of artifacts including a submarine and incomparable examples of wartime aircraft.
In addition to permanent installations, the Museum showcases rotating exhibits. A few years ago, an exhibition from the US Holocaust Museum using Nomadic Display portable modular display systems travelled to the WWII Museum as a temporary installation. The Museum was impressed with the exhibit system. So when the time came to purchase modular displays for their “Manufacturing Victory” exhibit last year, they contacted Synergy Design Group of New Orleans. The Museum wanted a display system that would enable them to integrate and repurpose the displays for future use in new exhibitions. John Costa, Exhibit Designer, was delighted by the experience saying “Synergy is a joy to work with.”
So when planning this year’s new travelling exhibition about the African American experience in WWII, they brought Synergy Design Group in to work on the project. Entitled “Fighting for the Right to Fight”, the exhibition features large scale modular displays and rich graphic imagery that have to be easy to break down, ship and reassemble.
Next summer the “Fighting for the Right to Right” exhibition will begin a two year national tour.
“Synergy Design Group is able to meet tight deadlines and field last minute changes so I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. We are extremely pleased with Nomadic’s exhibit systems, the quality of manufacturing and the ease with which we will be able to repurpose them” said John Costa, Exhibit Designer.
