EXHIBITORLIVE 2018: Elephant, Engagement, and Your Extra Advantage

We love our industry and the opportunity to meet and share
with everyone at EXHIHBITORLIVE!

A big thank you to all those who stopped by our booth. We
had terrific conversations with engaged customers eager to discuss how Brumark
can help deliver true results for their business and their clients.

Here are a few of the many highlights from this conference:

  • Your extra advantage – Our new Advantage XL carpet line was
    very well received. Simply put, this is superior carpet at unbeatable value.
    Contact your
    Client Experience Manager to learn more!
  • Building buzz – Our exhibit received a lot of attention,
    helping us generate excitement about the new Advantage XL carpet line. We used
    a manufacturing theme to support the launch of Advantage XL, which uses
    advanced processes and materials for extra value. And visitors were able to
    experience our extensive line of Total Flooring Solutions in the exhibit.
  • Fabrication excellence – Our sister company at Exploring,
    ID3 Group, used its proprietary 3Dimensioneering process and unique range
    of expert fabrication capabilities to bring our exhibit concept to life. ID3
    Group works directly with exhibit companies and design and production groups.
    Check them out to see how they can partner with you!
  • Encouraging engagement – We were pleased to contribute to
    the EXHIBITORLIVE 2018 experience as a sponsor, with engaging elements
    throughout the show. We sponsored the giant pink elephant — The Chief Elephant
    in the Room — in the new Connection Zone, which sparked a lot of attention and
    conversation. The elephant was fabricated by the talented ID3 Group and Chisel
    3D team and attendees were encouraged to come by the Brumark booth with their name
    suggestions. This was a “ton” of fun! The winning name, submitted by Theresa
    Van Den Eeden, Event Specialist at Rittal Corporation, was Peanuts.
  • Capturing attention – Brumark
    also provided custom-printed flooring for the
    show entrance, The Connection Zone, the VIP lounge, and the Buyer’s Choice and
    Best of Show awards. The custom graphics were printed on Image White FlexFloor –
    our new print base that allows for exceptional color and quality at an
    unbeatable price.
  • Excellence awarded – We were proud to recognize six valued
    clients with a Bru-E award for their tremendous support. Stay tuned for an
    announcement about the winners!
  • The future is bright – We were honored to have exhibit
    design students from FIT and Bemidji State University stop by our booth. We’re
    always thrilled to share their vision and excitement for the future.

We were especially pleased to partner with the EXHIBITOR
team on the sponsorship this year, along with ID3 Group and Chisel 3D. “The team at Exploring greatly exceeded my
expectations with the execution of the concept,” said Randy Acker, President and COO of
Exhibitor Media Group. “For the attendees and exhibitors the
elephant was a hit before EXHIBITORLIVE had even opened for the week. The goal
of creating an unexpected element within The Square and The Connection Zone
that was also a social media magnet was achieved. This was a great partnership
of bringing an idea to folks who could make it a reality.”
