Studio Displays Inc., recently created this 20’x20′ modular tradeshow exhibit for National Gypsum, one of the largest gypsum board producers in the world. With its incorporated LED wall lighting system, using Gypsum’s branded colors, the booth made a shining debut at the Remodeling/Deck Expo in Baltimore this October. Gypsum demonstrated the durability of their products at the show with the help of Anitra Mecadon, star of the DIY Networks’ show “Mega Dens”. “Our client was looking for a clean, open and inviting space to demonstrate their featured products,” said John Beckman, Design Director at Studio Displays, Inc. “”We were able to achieve and exceed expectations, by increasing the overall height of the structure, thus elevating branded elements for max impact while allowing for a more open floor space.” For more information, contact Studio Displays, 10600 Southern Loop Blvd. Pineville, NC 28134; (Web Site)
