Ultimate Versatility & Expandability - ISO Wave

2012 brought many interesting and unique displays to the trade show industry. The most revolutionary was the ISO Wave from Mark Bric. This solution combines the versatility and expandability of an entry modular system with the price point of a conventional pop-up solution.

ISO WaveThe ISO Wave is constructed from a series of 31.5” wide rollable panels. It can be as small as a single panel width or could be used to construct a 30’ back wall. The ISO Waves revolutionary design allows the display to take virtually any shape including a straight back wall, a concave or convex display, a serpentine, or any other shape you can imagine. Shelves, monitors, and tables can also be incorporated into the unit.

A 10’ ISO Wave display takes about 15 minutes to erect, and the 20’ configuration with monitor and table takes less than 1/2 hour. No tools or special training is required so in most shows, it can be assembled without the need to hire an I & D crew. A 20’ unit packs down into a flat case 10” x 20” x 48” and the graphics are transported in a 15” diameter x 40” tall rolling case. The cost for the ISO Wave is between $ 3,000 - $ 4,000 including graphics printing for a 10’ display. Click Here for more information on the ISO or contact us at 301.695.0086.

Pillow Case Style Displays Provide
Professionalism at a Great Price!

Pillow Case Style Displays offer the same professional appearance as a stretch fabric popup display at a fraction of the cost. Pillow Case displays can be horizontal concave, vertical concave or serpentine. They also come in tabletop as well as floor units and may be one sided or two sided. The frame is assembled in a matter of minutes and the graphics slide over the frame in a similar manner as a pillow case. Graphics are printed via dye-sublimation, providing exceptional image quality.

The pillow case displays are among the most cost effective solutions available. The cost for an 8’ curved back wall including frame, graphics, and case, is under $ 1,000. A 20’ Serpentine with front printed graphics is under $ 2,000. Click Here for more information on Pillow Case Displays or contact us at 301.695.0086.

Bechtel’s Tabletop Display with Impact!

There are dozens of different popular tabletop display models available, from tri and quad fold, to pop-up, to retractable banners. John Connors, a graphic designer for Bechtel, approached us for a tabletop display solution. John was looking for something unique to draw attention to their message. The solution....The Collage!

“We participate in many conferences and expos throughout the year and we needed something versatile that can be easily reconfigured to focus on the different audiences we’re trying to reach. This was the perfect solution for us.” ~John Connors, Graphic Designer, Bechtel.

Bechtel Pop-Up DisplayThe Collage offers the ease of set-up of a Pop-up but offers more versatility in the way the graphics can be displayed and changed. In addition, the Collage offers a sense of dimension that is impossible to achieve with a conventional Pop-up. Attached to the frame are a series of stretch fabric panels. Some panels go from the back of the frame to the front to offer depth to your message, while the main subject is stretched in the foreground to be the center of attention!

Collage displays come in a myriad of sizes ranging from tabletop sizes to full floor back walls; they set-up in minutes with the slightest of effort. Units like the one Bechtel used cost under $ 1,400 and includes the frame and graphics. Click Here for information on the Collage line of displays or contact us, and we will be happy to help.
