Skyline Exhibits Wins Design Awards for Best New Exhibiting Products
Skyline Takes Two of Six Awards at EXHIBITOR2010
ST. PAUL (July 22, 2010) -- Skyline Exhibits has won two EXHIBITOR Product Design Awards honoring excellence in product design within the exhibit and event industry. New products winning the awards are the Envoy® Exhibit System and the Occasions® Custom Modular Table. "We're excited to receive the awards," stated Scott Roschi, Skyline's Creative Director. "To impress that group of judges is very rewarding."
This year's competition was juried by highly esteemed industrial designers, Brett Lovelady, president and CEO, Astro Studios, San Francisco; Jeff Salazar, design director at San Francisco-based Lunar; and Joseph Ungari, vice president, Advanced Product Creation Center, T-Mobile USA, Seattle.
During EXHIBITOR2010, the industry's largest show, the judges examined entrants' products considering, not only functionality, industry benefits and usefulness to exhibit professionals, but also overall design aesthetic. Judges touted the winning products as "highly functional" and "courageously inventive."
Skyline's Envoy® Exhibit System features a sleek frame, rounded corners and a concealed fabric connection system which results in a very contemporary and elegant custom look. Its modular construction allows for nearly any design along with the option to reconfigure for varying booth sizes. "Envoy offers the perfect combination of modern aesthetics and high-level functionality," judges commented.
The Occasions® Custom Modular Table is designed to be lightweight and fold up surprisingly small, yet is full of features commonly found only on larger tables and workstations. "The versatility and flexibility of this product goes way beyond what you'd expect from a typical table," judges noted.
"We feel the success of our product creation is directly attributed to our process," stated Julie Heck, Skyline's Director of Product Marketing. "Our project teams consist of Industrial and Exhibit Designers, Engineers and Product Marketers all working together to maximize appeal and performance."
In the past two years, Skyline has also won back-to-back Buyers Choice Awards for Envoy® as well as its DesignView® Presentation System. In 2009, its Myriad® banner stand display, popular for its built-in merchandising capability, was also awarded the prestigious China's Most Successful Design Award.
