AuthorI will admit one of my dirty little secrets… I LOVE being on show site! Nothing ever goes as planned; but that’s part of the fun. Thinking quickly, solving problems, broken overhead sprinklers, popcorn machines catching fire, rotating booths 180 degrees, yep I love it all! Read more…

A Square Beyond Compare

July 17, 2015 2 comments

AuthorFor those outside of St. Louis there is a local pizza chain that uses a tag line that is “The Square Beyond Compare”. The company, Imo’s – (I want to give proper credit to the catch phrase) makes St. Louis style thin crust pizza and they do not cut it into traditional wedges, but squares, hence the slogan.

Do you walk the walk, better yet does your entire organization?

I apologize in advance as my story telling abilities are far from compelling and/or engaging enough to pull you to the edge of your seat or have you hanging on my every word. I also may have left off a few colorful verbs, nouns, pronouns or adjectives out, strictly for reducing word count only.

We all at one point in time or another have experienced a situation or customer service meltdown similar to the one below:   Read more…

Fare Thee Well and Bottle Rockets

AuthorTomorrow is Independence Day and I encourage all to stop, really stop and think about what occurred to form our country and the wisdom on hand to outline the future of our country. I am glad I can criticize, glad I can call the prez anything from a “hero” (our society really overuses that word now) to a zero and it’s cool because it’s my right.   Read more…

I admit it. I’m a geek, I’m a gamer and I love toys. Don’t believe me? Check out this blog post. I also know the proverbial gamer stereotype…one of junk food, poor health and/or weight, and social inadequacies. No, I’m not calling anyone a gamer or a geek (though if you want to admit it, it’s okay… apparently it’s cool now). Unfortunately in our industry, we can fall prey to the same temptations that gamers do. Ones of convenience, time-savers and shortcuts.

Communication Breakdown

PaulFor some of you, the title may have Led you to believe that I am blogging about a Zeppelin song. Sorry if it’s a disappointment, but I’m not. I just referenced it because, well, it’s one of the best bands ever and an incredible song.

What I am here to talk about is something that happened somewhere between me planning a wedding and me posting this blog today. Somewhere in that space we ended up with no blog. Dum dum dum-dum! Yep, there was truly a Communication Breakdown. I’m not really sure what happened, and in this particular case, I’m not too concerned about it.   Read more…

Feel This

AuthorWithout fabric we would truly be naked and afraid. The earliest forms consisted of animal skins draped across the body for warmth. Weaving of fabric dates back to 8000 B.C and woven wool rugs have been found near Turkey from around 6500 BC. Lastly, China is credited with opening trade routes with their production of silk around 2800 B.C.

History aside, the fact remains – we have come a long way with fabric. It is part of everyday life affecting many industries. In the tradeshow industry, fabric is a mainstay and the primary component in the creation of exhibits and displays. Not just the fabric itself but the need for colorful, true to life, attention-getting graphics is in demand. Read more…
