Creatacor Inc., an exhibit design, fabrication and tradeshow management provider, took home three silver awards at the 2019 ADDY Awards hosted by the Capital Region Advertising Federation. The awards recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in advertising.
Home of the ADDY Awards, the American Advertising Federation Awards is one of the industry’s largest creative competitions, attracting nearly 35,000 professional and student entries each year through competitions offered through local AAF clubs. The Capital Region Advertising Federation is upstate New York’s local chapter of the AAF.
Creatacor received one silver award in the category of “Out of Home & Ambient Media: Multiple Installations” and two in the category of “Out of Home & Ambient Media: Single Installation.”
Creatacor’s work for their Callaway at PGA 2018 and LEGO Comic-Con 2018 (pictured left) exhibits succeeded in the “Out of Home & Ambient Media: Single Installation” category, while their work on The Wall That Heals, a 144-panel, 8,000-pound mobile version of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, won in the “Out of Home & Ambient Media: Multiple Installations” category.
“It’s always humbling to receive recognition for projects that we are so passionate about,” says Will Farmer, chief operating officer for Creatacor. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to see our creativity and hard work pay off.”
Creatacor’s Callaway exhibit consisted of five separate continuous spaces, combined at an impressive 18,762 square feet maintaining Callaway’s corporate identity and highlighting individual brands. Creatacor was also able to continue its partnership with LEGO in designing a Comic-Con booth that created an immersive experience as attendees built sections of The LEGO Movie 2 mosaic on a large mosaic wall.
In a partnership with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, The Wall That Heals was at 75 percent scale of The Wall in Washington D.C., stopping at over 40 locations across the country during 2018 via a 53-foot trailer that also serves as a mobile education center, which listed names and included photos of those from the tour area who died as a result of their service in Vietnam.
