Reveal Inc., the St. Louis-based face-to-face marketing company, hosted their annual open house on Thursday, April 12 from 3 – 8 p.m. Approximately 275 clients, prospects, suppliers, partners and community leaders attended. For the event, Reveal transformed its production and warehouse spaces into a mini tradeshow, setting up about a dozen of its clients’ exhibit properties, inviting suppliers and partners to show their wares, and setting up several bars and cafés for food and beverage service.
Reveal selected some of its newest client projects to feature the latest in exhibit design and unique materials. Suppliers such as Nomadic Displays, Optima Graphics, Lawrence Fabric, Brumark, ExhibitForce, and RLK Associates participated by showing their products. Paramount Convention Services provided furniture and pipe and drape.
Guests got to see the latest technology for tradeshows, including several iPad apps, the Kazaam glasses-free 3D TV, and high-definition printing on fabric. When registering for the party, guests could download a Smartbag app from Marketing Alternatives Inc. that allowed them to scan QR codes placed around the building and receive information on client case studies, supplier products and information about Reveal’s tradeshow marketing programs.
One of the city’s newest specialty brewers, Kraftig, and a local fifth generation winery, Adam Puchta Winery, provided sampling of their products for guests, who also enjoyed a wide variety of catered food and live music from local young talent.
Started last year in celebration of the company’s 10th anniversary, the popularity of the event made it an easy decision to do it annually.
