ICSC 2016

Port Covington

Objectives

To showcase the continued efforts surrounding the Port Covington, Acer Exhibits designed and fabricated a 1600 sq. ft. exhibit that debuted at ICSC 2016. The goal, to not only inform attendees about Port Covington, but to welcome and invite attendees to experience Port Covington in-proxy.

The Approach

Our Solution

The use of “honest and authentic materials” throughout the exhibit, showcased reclaimed barn wood and faux painted concrete to create a rustic contemporary atmosphere. There were large printed fabric walls, expanding 16 ft. high with three dimensional logos for brand identity. As visitors entered the exhibit, they were welcomed by an LED backlit metal Port Covington logo. To draw traffic into the exhibit, strategic messages were displayed on the acrylic windows inviting attendees to visit the Port Covington experience. The exhibit lounge area was warm and relaxing with a bar, leather sofas, and midcentury chairs.

ISC West 2016

HIKVISION

Objectives

Hikvision’s 50’ x 60’ exhibit made its debut at ISC West 2016, making a huge statement with its “V” shaped banners, multiple 3D logos, two double deck conference rooms, and a 22’ tower covered in faux stone to give it a sophisticated feel. Six angular product kiosks flanked the right and left of the space brought together by a “U” shaped overhead structure, which angled down on the ends displaying large internally lit Hikvision logos. A large cut out 3D Hikvision logo sat on top of the overhead kiosk structure on both sides adding an impactful showing of branding.

The Approach

Our Solution

Positioned centrally, is the lounge area with comfortable, contemporary seating. The lounge also features a reception desk backed by a 25’ tall stone wall with identification, and large monitor. The interior space retains a hospitality desk for refreshments, backed by a shorter wall which doubles as theater on the opposite side facing the aisle. An overhead lighting structure with vertical, supporting corner units featuring lit acrylic panels help define the space and help create an oasis in the exhibit.

ICAST 2015

Under Armour

Objectives

For one of the most recognized brands in the world, “consistency of brand” is of paramount concern. Maintaining this consistency across a multi-market exhibit tour, became the core challenge. The team at Acer answered with an exhibit that provided Under Armour flexibility in both configuration and brand/messaging opportunities.

The Approach

Our Solution

Appealing to differing audiences while maintaining the core brand attributes, the design and creative teams of both Under Armour and Acer worked in close collaboration through some unique challenges.   By maximizing surface area and keeping angles structurally consistent, the team produced an exhibit that can be configured to appeal to various customer segments.

Archery Trade Association Tradeshow (ATA) 2015

Muck Boots

Objectives

Acer designed and fabricated a 20’ x 30’ island tradeshow exhibit for Muck Boots to use at the Archery Trade Association Tradeshow (ATA) in January 2015. The show provides archery industry professionals with a first-look at new outdoor gear for the upcoming season. 

The core challenge – how do you showcase 150 pairs of boots with limited real-estate?  Acer’s design and production teams brought the client’s vision to life through an iterative, yet highly collaborative, process. 

The Approach

Our Solution

With natural wood and faux stone panels to create a “rustic contemporary” environment, the exhibit features an open floor plan that provides various levels of branding.  A novel talking piece, Acer constructed a reception counter with a built-in water tank to demonstrate the waterproof capabilities of Muck’s footwear.  Creating visibility and presence throughout the convention hall, the exhibit included a 16’ faux stone tower and 20’ hanging sign.

GENETEC

Objectives

Partnering with Genetec since 2013, Acer has repeatedly delivered exhibit solutions that bring adulation from employees to attendees, alike.  Reaching these ever-increasing levels in their branding did not, however, come without its own challenges. The exhibits for Genetec needed to not only immerse the attendee in all that was (and is) Genetec, but do so while realizing a reduction in exhibit costs. Genetec wanted their clients to truly experience all the products and solutions, while being surrounded in the brand that is Genetec.  Acer’s team of experts went to work on the engineering and cost savings. 

The Approach

Our Solution

In the end, engineering many of the components as one unit and incorporating many of the necessary components, cables, and monitors, not only delivered a stand-out exhibit, but reduced the largest cost component – labor. On-site, this saves install costs for both laborers and electricians. Other components such as the reception counter and meeting table, although oversize, is also one piece. Even with an oversize crate that is needed for these elements, the labor cost savings is greater than any other added cost.

HARRIS HEALTHCARE

Objectives

Harris Healthcare was in an interesting transition period.  And although they were undergoing transformation, they still needed to maintain their brand position and stand-out!  Having recently acquired several businesses, Harris Healthcare needed to maintain the overall Harris Healthcare master-brand, while separately distinguishing each of the new business units. 

The Approach

Our Solution

Acer delivered with an exhibit that was an exponential departure from the booth they’d been employing for the previous 8 years.  And, instead of jumping into another owned exhibit, the Acer experts could provide them a rental for their largest show, accomplish everything they needed, and deliver within a budget that was optimal for Harris Healthcare.
