Skyline Exhibits launches inflatable display for trade shows

The St. Paul company's new offering gives events professionals a portable, all-in-one exhibit setup

Skyline Exhibits, a St. Paul-based manufacturer of trade show displays and portable exhibits, recently launched Skyline WindScape, an inflatable, portable, all-in-one display setup. The idea behind the offering is that exhibitors can manage their entire exhibition through one easy-to-transport container. The system comes in 46 different shapes, ranging from small overlays to 16-foot-tall towers, and takes minutes to set up. See the promotional video below to see how it works.

Last year, Skyline Exhibits was awarded the Product Development and Management Association's Outstanding Corporate Innovator Award. Within the past five years, the company reports, its new products have grown from 12 to 24 percent of total sales. Founded in 1980, the company has more than 120 design centers in over 30 countries, about 300 employees, and a network of about a thousand independent dealer employees.

Trade show exhibits might be a niche market, but Jon Althoff, senior director of global marketing for Skyline Exhibits, likes to think of trade shows as the "original social media." -Ali Lacey
