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.”
