LONG BEACH, Calif. – May 3, 2018 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, today announced it was the winner of the ACE (Awesome Cool Exhibits) Award for Medium Island Booth at the 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas. Out of 1,700 exhibitors at NAB this year, Epson was one of four to receive an ACE Award, which recognizes exhibitors for their ability to captivate show attendees through their innovations in booth design and execution.
“The ACE Awards (Awesome Cool Exhibits) are all about NAB Show booths that engage attendees and really stand out on the Show Floor. Booths are considered by their visual appeal, how well they display their products, how easily attendees can navigate their booth, and the level of engagement by their exhibit staff,” said Nicholas Gadino, exhibitor experience specialist, conventions and business operations at National Association of Broadcasters. “Our 2018 NAB Show Medium Island Booth Winner, Epson, displayed an attractive exhibit, provided attendees ample space for product interaction, and had a top-notch exhibit staff that was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging.”
The ACE Awards are presented to a very select number of exhibitors and judged by tradeshow experts who conduct in-depth evaluations of all exhibits at the show. There is no entry form and winners are chosen based on the booth’s ability to; grab visual attention, offer easy navigation, deliver appealing product presentations, and engage attendees.
At NAB this year, Epson’s booth provided a range of hands-on demonstrations, including the Pro L1755UNL laser projector with an ELPLX02 ultra short-throw lens, delivering vivid, large imagery from an impressive short distance; the Epson Projector Professional Tool Software showed remote multi-projector management; LightScene™ lit up an interactive bar; three Pro L25000U laser projectors demonstrated the power of projection with a large edge-blended image on a 29-foot by 6-foot custom screen; and Epson Moverio ® BT-300 smart glasses offered a look into a live drone camera feed. From its extensive line of laser projector technology and software solutions to smart glasses, Epson presented a clear view of its unique solutions for content delivery across a variety of markets, including rental and staging, spatial design and signage, education, and corporate.
