ADVERTISING SOLUTIONS EXHIBITION LAUNCHED IN SAINT PETERSBURG

Today, a special exhibition Advertising. Information. Design. Execution comes into operation at the ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre. This year, the project is hosting exterior advertising providers, printing equipment and material vendors, promotional merchandise manufacturers, full-cycle advertising agencies, etc.

The exhibition offers a wide range of creative gift solutions: from whiskey stones and glass Christmas-tree decorations to luxury customized gifts made to order. The International Association of Presentation Products introduced its prize contenders at its stand: the most unique promotional items of the last year, for instance, honey in a natural wax tin or medical chemical heating pads in any shape and color.

The AdBox company presents a ready-made solution for spectacular demonstrations, advertising campaigns and behavioral scoring – these three stands are used in shopping centers, malls, cafes, exhibitions and other areas with a high traffic flow. AdBox technology helps estimate visitor traffic, behavior patterns, demonstration campaign engagement rates and compiles automated detailed reports.

The IDCgroup FlyStand stand provides an overview of modern presentation solutions, so-called fly stands, supporting the rotation of items up to 2 kg in the air that may be complemented with a screen for video and slide-show display.

Some exhibitors are so outstanding that they are short of exhibition space: such as the LazyBag air sofas protruding into all the surrounding exhibition passages, inviting visitors to try them out right there.

Their neighboring Russian company Be in 3D demonstrates to visitors the opportunity to create their own miniature avatars. After having been scanned for 3 minutes, the client can obtain their own 1:10 scale figure made of colored gypsum reflecting all the features of its live prototype such as facial traits, items of clothing, and even its character and manner.

One of the event’s foreign exhibitors is Shanghai derflex, a Chinese manufacturer of banner fabric for street banners and tents. But most solutions and equipment offered at the exhibition are Made in Russia. This is another mark of pride for exhibitors.

The greatest exhibition area was occupied by the Decoration and Lighting Festival, at which lighting solutions designed for city decoration were presented by Diamond-Led, SOS Decoration, Karlsbach, ReCol, BigDecor, Tochka Opory, Svetovye Resheniya Illuminatsia and GK Megapolis. Illuminated Christmas trees and twinkling 3D-garlands create a Christmas mood among visitors. One of the first exhibition visitors was Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Board of PJSC Gazprom. He greatly appreciated the outdoor and indoor advertising, festival decoration and lighting equipment, materials and solutions on display. The most interesting of them will be included in Gazprom’s facility decoration design plan.
