Forza Mobile
Video Wall
Video walls are all the rage, but they usually require a considerable amount of setup time. Buyers Choice Awards judges loved the Forza Mobile Video Wall for being a game changer in that regard, as it features four screens that pop out of two rolling cases and requires little more than an outlet to be ready to go. Each case holds two 47- or 55-inch monitors that simply rise up from the case on an internal frame and swivel into position. When set side by side, the four screens create a display that is 94 or 110 inches

diagonally and is capable of displaying material from the included media player or any other device that can be powered by an HDMI cable. "Getting a touch screen set up in the booth can be such a pain," one judge said, "but this just rolls in and in 15 minutes is ready to run." An optional image splitter gives the system the ability to display multiple images on different monitors, and an optional sound bar can be added when audio is required.

Curve Display System
Add visual interest to your exhibit with single- and double-sided back walls that can twist and turn in a connected chain as long as you like, and keep them perfectly aligned at the top and bottom with a patented tension bar. The Curve Display System from Eve Products Ltd. comprises three slim 7-foot-tall panels — two that are flat and 34 inches wide, and one in between them that is 17 inches wide and flexible. Buyers Choice Awards judges were impressed by the product's innovative leveling system that moves panels up or down to keep them looking straight on uneven floors. But judges especially loved the Curve's sophisticated profile and lightweight design, which comes in at less than 30 pounds. "I thought the Curve was truly innovative and very well engineered," one judge said. Graphics can be double sided, and integrated lighting is available.

Klik Magnetic
Display System
Forget about cutting holes in your tensioned-fabric display and messing with nuts and bolts to add accessories. The magnetized shelves of the Klik Magnetic Display System are strong enough to support the weight of two bowling balls — a fact that bowled over Buyers Choice Awards judges. The system is crafted with powerful magnets that will connect exhibit walls to each other and support accessories weighing up to 50 pounds without requiring you to ever turn a single screw. A customizable grid inside each wall frame provides magnets wherever you want them, and optional accessories such as shelves, pegboards, graphics panels, and slat walls allow you to arrange the display however you like. Judges called the Klik Magnetic Display System lightweight, stable, and innovative. Contact: Fusion Imaging, Kaysville, UT, 800-943-5200, www.fusionimaging.com


XPOVID-Analytics
XPOVID-Analytics offers a bird's-eye view of all the action in your booth and will even summarize it for you at the end of the day. Buyers Choice Awards judges hailed the product as a means to transform reporting at the end of a show. "These days you have to prove everything," one judge said. "This is a very useful way to gather data on the booth that will really help with those reports." The product uses four cameras along with a computer processor and modems to scan areas of the exhibit, measuring things such as traffic flow and attendees' engagement with staffers or product displays. Each camera can be set to track distinct zones, and a customized computer algorithm counts bodies; it can even be programmed to exclude staffers based on their shirt color. An end report details aisle traffic, booth traffic, and the number of people who show interest based on their linger time. Contact: ELITeXPO, South Elgin, IL, 847-324-3840, www.elitexpo.com
Show 6
LED Battery
Display Light
Enjoy the freedom of putting light wherever you want in your booth without running power cables or calling the electrician when you use Show 6 LED Battery Display Lights from ShowBattery. Buyers Choice Awards judges were wowed by the single- or double-fixture kits that include an arm light, a Lithium Ion

battery, a charging power supply, and 10-foot-long cables that connect the light to the battery. "For people running small booths, not having to call in an electrician means this will pay for itself in just one or two shows," one judge said. Arm lights are 16 inches long with a 2.5-by-1.5-inch light head that is capable of lighting a banner stand or exhibit back wall. The base of the arm light is designed to fit most bracket clamps. Batteries will last 10 hours when powering two lights and twice as long when powering one, and they are fully recharged in only five hours.

ShowGo Virtual Assistant
Managing all the details of multiple trade shows is time consuming, but ShowGo Virtual Assistant aims to ease the burden by collecting show data and sending reminders that keep you on schedule. Buyers Choice Awards judges raved about the time this product would save, as the VirtualAssistant service will harvest digital information from the show manuals of events you enter into the system, populating a database of tasks, schedules, and documents to help you manage your participation. Offered as a paid add-on to ShowGo software, the service sends notifications of deadlines or changes to published show info and suggests additional shows that fit the profile of events you have been attending.
