Con­cep­tion, design, and imple­men­ta­tion of an exhibit to pro­mote United King­dom inno­va­tion at the 2011 Amer­i­cana con­fer­ence in Montreal.

The British High Com­mis­sion called upon DE to con­ceive an exhibit for their pres­ence at the 2011 Amer­i­cana con­fer­ence — one of the lead­ing envi­ron­men­tal tech­nol­ogy and busi­ness events in North Amer­ica. DE responded with the idea of an “eco-chic” exhibit that com­bined unique fur­ni­ture made from recy­cled mate­ri­als by local Mon­treal arti­sans with a slick ser­pen­tine wave­line back­drop. DE pro­posed that an envi­ron­men­tal analy­sis includ­ing a mate­ri­als assess­ment and car­bon foot­print of the project be per­formed. The car­bon foot­print helped to link this project with the UK low car­bon plan recently only two weeks before the conference.

DE part­ners on this project were MOD dis­plays, who sup­plied the ser­pen­tine wave­line struc­ture, and Monde Ruelle, who sup­plied the eco­log­i­cal fur­ni­ture. Both part­ners did great work.

The DE approach resulted in a very unique exhibit expe­ri­ence and many turned heads, includ­ing our client:

Work­ing with David Oswald and his team at DE was a fan­tas­tic expe­ri­ence. They very quickly brought vision to our project whilst never for­get­ting our spe­cific needs and objectives.

The art­work pro­duced in such short delays was out­stand­ing and the result was a truly unique, styl­ized, and engag­ing Trade exhibit which suc­cess­fully attracted the atten­tion vis­i­tors and del­e­gates. DE’s holis­tic approach to design and com­mu­ni­ca­tion had a very pos­i­tive impact on all aspects of our pres­ence at Amer­i­cana and we much look for­ward to work­ing with them again.”
