Spotlight : Vibram Booth at FN Platform 2018

mackenzie EXHIBIT is proud to announce that the Vibram booth at FN Platform 2018 has officially been awarded the Most Innovative Use of Space Award. We relish the opportunity to work with such inventive and creative companies such as Vibram and look forward to working with them to create many more iterations of award-winning booths in the future.

FN Platform

FN Platform is a chance for leaders in the footwear industry to gather together to share ideas and fashion-forward creations that provide inspiration for the global market. These companies represent the best-of-the-best from over 30 countries and showcase designs for men, women, juniors, and children; needless to say, competition among these creative companies is pretty strong. Because FN Platform represents a concentration of some of the most respected footwear brands in the world, it’s even more impressive that Vibram was able to so clearly stand out and win the Most Innovative Use of Space Award.

The Vibram booth by mackenzie EXHIBIT drew heavily from the global nature of both FN Platform and Vibram’s international brand presence to create a design that truly represents our worldwide culture. The booth interior featured an installation with a constellation-style representation of the globe with pins placed at international hubs around the world all leading to design aspects of the Furoshiki “wrapping sole” design. This innovative structure allowed for a maximum amount of information to be conveyed in a beautiful and succinct manner and is one of the many reasons why the Vibram booth was tapped for the FN Platform Most Innovative Use of Space Award.

MX Financial Brand Forum 2018 Booth

Spotlight : MX Booth Financial Brand Forum 2018

This week, we’ll focus on a booth that is near and dear to our hearts for many reasons, one of which is the stellar and eye-catching lighting: the MX booth at the Financial Brand Forum 2018. We had to think outside the box to come up with a lighting installation that would combine haphazard with clean, intentional with accidental. Anyone familiar with framework or construction in general knows that creating a piece with odd intersecting angles can be a challenge to say the least and takes a very unique mind.

Be Bold (and Bright)

mackenzie EXHIBIT has a tendency to enjoy going above and beyond on our booths, and luckily we have clients like MX that are happy to go along with us on the crazy journey that leads to creating something truly beautiful. At an event that has a tendency to lean more toward traditional, we created a booth that stood out from the rest — and not just because of its two-story structure.

“This two-story 20×30 island exhibit booth was a first for The Financial Brand Forum. It literally took exhibits to the next level, with two conference rooms for private meetings upstairs — both impressive and gorgeous!” — The Financial Brand

For us, what really took this booth above and beyond was the lighting. Ranging from a stark and clean back-lit MX logo to a panel of no less than nine television screens that acted as a single unit to perhaps the most visually interesting pieces of the whole exhibit: a lighting installation that looks almost like pickup sticks scattered across a floor, but created larger-than-life and brightly lit from behind.

Watch the video below to see the MX booth come to life from start to finish.

Why We Do It

Of course we want you to watch the entire video to see what went into the design, construction, and completion of the MX booth, but if you’re pressed for time, go ahead and fast forward to around the 2:15 mark. That’s why we do what we do — the look of joy and shock on our customers’ faces when they see their booth for the first time. The sense of pride that clients feel standing in their booth at a show and thinking, “yeah, this is my company and it’s the coolest thing around.” The ability to bring happiness from constructive chaos. There isn’t another industry quite like the exhibit design industry, and there’s no place mackenzie EXHIBIT would rather be.

MX Booth Inspiration

Has this gorgeous booth inspired you to set up your trade show game? Good — we’re here to help. Reach out to us here and let our creative geniuses get to work on developing a booth that will make you feel the way our client did in the video above.
