WE WANTED TO BUILD A BOOTH FOR OUR TRADE SHOW TO SHOW OFF OUR CAPABILITIES!
Our Customer: Ourselves
The End User: Us
Location: Trade shows
We had extrusions, lightboxes, tube forming, banner finishing, metal fabrication and a sense of humour to boot. We wanted to show this off in a shōmi!-esque way.
1 - It had to be unique because shōmi!. It had to send a powerful message, not in a bully on playground way, more like “we can make anything you imagine” kind of way.
2 - It had to come in on a tight budget, small business and all 🙂
3 - Light weight, we wanted to walk it into the show and walk it out.
4 - It had to be quick assemble, we didn’t want to stay in a cold tradeshow hall till the wee hours in the morning.
HOW WE DID IT
1 - We made a 10’ x 10’ bedroom completely out of our products. The bed was made with aluminum tube, the walls were backlit frames, the lamp was our very own change-able branded lampshade, we call her Brandi®
2 - We used our own extrusions and hardware and asked one of our customers to print the fabric
3 - All of the component together came in under 300 Lbs, we walked them in.
4 - Swaged tubing and quick to setup SEG frames meant that we put the booth together in less than 2 hours and had time to go see our families.
