Skyline Changes the Face of Modular Exhibiting with Release of Envoy™

New High-Design System Brings Distinct Look to Market

ST. PAUL (September 11, 2009) -- "The future of exhibiting is here," said Michael Vekich, Executive Chairman of Skyline Exhibits. "The new Envoy™ Exhibit System is a breakthrough product that will appeal to a wide range of exhibitors."

A full team of marketers, designers and engineers, led by Julie Heck, Skyline's Director of Product Marketing, joined in a collaborative effort to develop a product that would change the face of the exhibiting industry.

"Our goal was to create a system that stayed true to the benefits of modular, but was visually distinct from any other product in the market," said Scott Roschi, Skyline's Creative Director. "We are very excited with the results. No system in the market can compete with Envoy."

Envoy features a sleek aluminum frame and uninterrupted graphic panels that are inset for a clean, finished appearance. Its curved corners and depth give it an elegant and impressive presence, yet the slim profile of its frame keeps the focus on graphics.

"Envoy reflects some of the latest design trends that are appearing in Europe and within some of the leading architectural firms and product design companies in the U.S.," said Roschi.

A key requirement during the development of Envoy was to accommodate the increasing use of technology within exhibits. Envoy gracefully carries flat screens and keyboards for presentations and has built-in wire management to conceal connections.

"The addition of Envoy to our family of modular products brings Skyline's design capabilities to an even higher level," said Roschi, who leads a team specializing in exhibit design for clients of all sizes. "Small or large, companies that exhibit well understand the importance of design. With its unique look, Envoy will be a perfect complement to many of our clients' brands."

"Beyond trade shows, Envoy will be a very nice solution for lobbies, retail environments, events and semi-permanent installations like museums," Heck added.

Even infrequent exhibitors have access to Envoy through Skyline's rental program. While available throughout Skyline's network, renters with shows in Las Vegas and Orlando can realize greater benefits. Skyline Service Centers located in North America's top two trade show destinations offer local fulfillment, which reduces shipping costs and shortens the rental period.

Envoy is the latest in a long line of new products and services Skyline has launched within the last 12 months. Earlier this year, its DesignView™ Presentation System earned a Buyers Choice Award for outstanding new product at Exhibitor2009.

"Skyline prides itself on innovation," stated Vekich. "It's part of our DNA."
