Bemidji State Exhibit Design Student's Design Selected for EDPA EuroShop Booth
Bemidji State University exhibit design student Hannah Sernett has been named the winner of the 2017 EDPA EuroShop Exhibit Competition.
The Exhibit Designers and Producers Association (EDPA) supports two exhibit design programs that help prepare the industry’s next generation of designers: an undergraduate program at Bemidji State University in Bemidji MN; and a graduate program at SUNY/FIT in New York City.
Every three years, EDPA engages both groups of students in the university affiliation program with a design competition.
The winning design in the competition is built as the official EDPA exhibit at EuroShop, and the winning designer is provided a trip to Dusseldorf, Germany, to see the exhibit design come to life. Sernett, a junior in the program at BSU, will make the trip to EuroShop with a number of other Bemidji State students.
“This EuroShop design competition is a great learning experience for the students by helping them understand international design differences as well as an experience via a RFP in which long time industry designer Tony Erpelding of Group Delphi acted as the customer,” said Randal Acker President & COO of EXHIBITOR Media Group. “As I understand it, the competition was filled with a number of outstanding entries, which underscores the importance of the EDPA University Affiliation program working with these two institutions. They are providing some great talent for our industry.”
