Real world businesses are constantly evolving and so are their trade show exhibiting needs.  Often, a company’s growth demands an increasing presence on the trade show floor. Utilizing strategic design and planning, building on a solid foundation and incorporating a steady approach allow companies of all sizes to grow their trade show presence and business in an intelligent way.

DisplayCraft has partnered with Thames & Kosmos since 2008 and we are proud to be part of the evolution of their trade show program and business.

From Humble Beginnings

Thames & Kosmos’s first custom exhibit designed and fabricated by DisplayCraft was a 20’ x 30’ peninsula configuration which served as the foundation for their growing trade show presence. Three elegant, illuminated display counters anchored the space and showcased their eye catching colorful products. A simple pop-up display graphic created both corporate branding and a partition to the adjacent booth. The exhibit debuted at the International Toy Fair, Javits Center in New York City.

Thames & Kosmos’s growing product lines and assortment of science kits facilitated the need for more display and storage space. The first big change was upgrading the pop-up display graphic wall with a series of shelves and hard wall panels to house more sample products.  The introduction of monitors added areas for looping product demonstrations.

With continued growth, Thames & Kosmos unveiled a larger 20’ x 40’ peninsula booth for the Toy Fair’14 show. Conference seating for order fulfillment was created with the additional 10’ of floor space. The illuminated counters were retrofitted with a series of vertical custom Plexiglas shelving units expanding their display surfaces three-fold. The added shelving system provided flexibility for product merchandising while maintaining the elegance of the original booth design
