EXHIBITOR Magazine’s 23rd Annual Exhibit Design Awards
Honoring the world’s best trade show exhibit designs.

The Great Wall
Walls are usually built to keep people at bay, but not at EuroShop 2008. Comprising 8,100 cardboard tubes, this wall-inspired exhibit for Projektpilot GmbH proves as interactive as it is arresting, claiming this year’s EDGE Award for Exhibit Design and Graphic Excellence.

Soothe Operator
A whimsical sense of rediscovery inspires Derse Inc. to re-imagine the famed Spanish Steps and create a gathering space for attendees at EXHIBITOR2008 — a move that inspires judges to grant it a Gold Award.

A Womb With a View
Kohlhaas Messebau GmbH & Co. KG envelopes booth visitors in a series of fabric-covered, wooden-framed partitions for this Silver Award-winning exhibit.

Romancing the Stone
Ueberholz GmbH knows how to rock out. To prove it has the stones to back up its rock-star status, the Wuppertal, Germany-based exhibit-design firm hauls 8 tons of sandstone into its exhibit — and hauls home a Gold Award to boot.

Cutting a Rug
To highlight its “carpetecture” concept at Interieur Kortrijk 2008, Dutch carpet manufacturer Desso Holding NV enlists the help of Munich, Germany-based Tulp Design to create a multi-planed Silver Award-winning structure.
