EXHIBITOR Magazine to Manage ISE 2017 Stand Design Awards in Amsterdam
EXHIBITOR magazine is proud to announce the launch of the first ever ISE 2017 Stand Design Awards, Organized by EXHIBITOR Magazine. The new initiative is hosted by Integrated Systems Europe, the world’s largest audiovisual and systems-integration trade show (held in Amsterdam Feb. 7–10, 2017), and managed solely by EXHIBITOR magazine, an award-winning monthly publication featuring best practices for trade show marketing.
Created to acknowledge ISE exhibitors and their exhibit-design efforts, the free competition is open to all of the show’s roughly 850 exhibits. Entries will be judged according to three size-based categories: 6–39 square meters, 40–100 square meters, and more than 100 square meters.
EXHIBITOR magazine’s editor, Travis Stanton, along with senior writer and awards-program manager Linda Armstrong, will be on site for the duration of the show and will complete the initial round of judging to select the finalists. Stanton has served as editor of EXHIBITOR magazine since 2005. He has written and spoken about stand-design trends at numerous trade shows and conferences, including EXHIBITORLIVE in Las Vegas, EuroShop in Dusseldorf, Germany, and the International Federation of Exhibition and Event Services' world summits in both Cape Town and New Delhi. He also launched EXHIBITOR magazine's Expo Awards competition in 2010, which has honored the most exceptional experiential designs at the three world expos since, held in Shanghai, Milan, and Yeosu, South Korea. In addition, Stanton has juried multiple editorial and design competitions, including the American Society of Business Publication Editors' Azbee Awards and the Western Publications Association's Maggie Awards competitions.
Armstrong has written about exhibit marketing and stand design for more than 15 years, during which time she has also managed EXHIBITOR Magazine’s Exhibit Design Awards, an internationally recognized stand-design competition now in its 31st year. In this role, she has selected world-renowned design experts to jury the competitions and has been part of every jury process since 2002.
During ISE, a group of highly esteemed designers and marketers will be on site to judge the finalists. Jurors will consider how well each stand: demonstrates effective design realization/fabrication, delivers cohesive and effective graphics, offers clear organization/wayfinding, presents an effective lighting design, employs the allotted space, and more. A minimum of three finalists will be selected in each category and notified on the show floor. One winner per category will be selected, and the three winners will be announced at an Awards Ceremony on Thursday, Feb. 9.
