According to Sarah Miller with Caplan Miller Events, “Movies have historically made a big impact on event themes.  We’ve all planned and attended our fair share of The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge, and Alice in Wonderland parties.”  This year is no different, with the release of several big superhero movies there will likely be a slew of action-packed birthdays and bar mitzvahs.  Miller is also anticipating many 80’s and sci-fi themed parties due to the popular remake of Ghostbusters.  What backdrop company you gonna call?  Grosh Backdrops!

Visiting with a School Theatre Director

Jun 19, 2014

Dianne Martin Giddens is the drama director at Deerfield Windsor School in Albany Georgia, or at least she was. Dianne is now “retiring.” Her daughter Lindsey Stewart, who recently graduated from University of Northern Colorado with a Masters in Theatre Education, is now taking the reins.

Tradeshow Booth Image and Design

Tradeshow Booth Image and Design

Apr 8, 2014

It doesn’t matter which tradeshow or convention you are attending, the goal is to leave a lasting impression on attendees. Your booth image has the power to generate new leads and collect valuable customer feedback.  The first part is getting them to stop by your booth amongst the myriad of others, once you have them there you can sales pitch and/or collect useful information for future marketing.

Target your Audience!

Focus on your target audience and design your booth to appeal to them. Are your clients into technology? Try adding interactive kiosks. Is your product aimed at children? Incorporate a game, like a mini hoop. In this instance, you may want to have open space in your booth. Do you have a product that can be tried out on the spot?  If you sell dancewear and costumes, creating a dressing room in the corner of your booth can help.  By knowing your customers you will find it easier to decide what to include in designing your booth.

You don’t want to be forced into a decision because of time constraints.  You will save money by avoiding rushed production charges or expensive expedited shipping of booth materials. Not to mention travel and hotel expenses for employees. Considering these basic bullet points and timeframes will help you navigate through the process.
