In addition to creating the COSCO corporate interior exhibit hall space, ExhibitCraft organized the event 30th anniversary celebration, including details such as outdoor signage, pop-up displays in the event lobby, hanging signs, audio, video, lighting and staging as well as a floral arrangement on display in the lobby.
Attendees of the 30th anniversary celebration were able to get a first look at the exhibit hall upon its debut, including COSCO Americans corporate employees. Many snapped pictures with the iPhones, and watched video and imagery that played on an HD TV above a custom display designed and custom-built by ExhibitCraft.
Visitors to the exhibit hall were greeted with a three-dimensional map depicting Cosco’s service areas around the world, and scale models of COSCO Container ships in custom display boxes. To help create a more intimate feel in the event space, a unique metal sculpture hangs from the ceiling in the center of the room, and the top of the room’s walls display a vinyl wrap-around with the countries around the world touched by the global giant, COSCO.
Seeing the 30-year history in the Americas come to life is exciting for the entire COSCO team. The exhibit hall is currently only open to COSCO’s employees, clients and visitors by appointment only. Reservations would need to be made through a contact at COSCO.
