EXHIBITOR Magazine Announces Expo 2012 Award Winners
8/6/2012
For more than 25 years, EXHIBITOR has brought you the world's most prestigious exhibit-design competition, honoring the crème de la crème of trade show exhibits. And in 2010, EXHIBITOR honored some of the most impressive temporary experiential structures the world has ever seen with its Expo 2010 Awards. Expanding on the success of that program, EXHIBITOR launched its Expo 2012 Awards three months ago, and is finally ready to announce the winners and honorable mentions in the competition's nine categories.

The purpose of the competition was to honor the most impressive work from the 2012 World's Expo in Yeosu, South Korea, and to spotlight some of the incredible pavilions there, all brimming with inspiration for exhibit and event professionals.

The competition netted entries from dozens of country, corporate, and theme pavilions, ranging from Turkey and Thailand to Switzerland and Singapore. Reflecting the Expo's theme of "The Living Ocean and Coast," many of the pavilions focused on environmental issues such as marine biodiversity, climate change, and environmental sustainability.

While a star-studded panel of multidisciplinary design, marketing, and communications experts judged seven categories (visit http://www.exhibitoronline.com/topics/expo2012/judges.asp for more on our judging panel), the People's Choice Award winner was determined by popular vote on EXHIBITOR's Expo 2012 microsite, and the editor of EXHIBITOR magazine determined the winner of our Editor's Choice Award.

"The Expo 2012 Award winners and honorable mentions represent some of the world's best examples of how experiential design, technology, presentation, and storytelling come together to effectively communicate compelling messages," said Travis Stanton, editor of EXHIBITOR magazine. "These examples will hopefully inform and inspire today's exhibit and event professionals - along with the next generation of face-to-face marketers. Because whether you're creating an immense international pavilion or a small 10-by-10-foot exhibit, it's often about making an impression, and the work on display in Yeosu does that in truly monumental and memorable ways."

So join us in congratulating EXHIBITOR Magazine's Expo 2012 Award winners (listed below). After all, according to our judges, our readers, and, well, ourselves, they are among the best the world (well, the World's Expo, at least) has to offer.
