Clear Picture
It used to be that LED monitors needed a wall to hang on, but the new transparent LED window display by Crystal Display Systems Ltd. is a game-changer that offers a whole new way to think about LED screens. The product, which displays images or video content using LEDs bright enough for outdoor viewing, are 85 percent transparent. So when backlighting is added, passersby can see straight through them. The screens come in standard and custom sizes ranging from 5.7 to 84 diagonal inches, and at just 10 millimeters thick, they are lightweight enough to be hung from ceilings or exhibit walls.

What a Crate Idea
Exhibitors using the MyPal shipping pallet that converts into two tables can now add a collapsible crate to their setup so they never again have to wait for crates or pallets to be delivered at show's end. MyCrate assembles using slots and braces, providing a sturdy 46-by-46-by-22-inch container that fits on top of the pallet. After its contents are removed, the crate, which requires no tools for assembly, disassembles into flat pieces that can be stored beneath the MyPal tables.

Panel Discussions
Add chic functionality to any exhibit wall when you use TigerLite Slotwall Panels in place of standard panels to showcase your wares. Panels are 27-inch squares that are part of a larger wall design, and can be printed with graphics making their 24-inch-long slots almost invisible until you hang accessories from them. Each panel has seven slots that collectively can hold 50 pounds or more, but the panel itself is 50 percent lighter than traditional slotwall products thanks to a honeycomb core crafted of military-grade aluminum. Slots will fit any standard slotwall panel accessories on the market. Contact: Tiger Presentations, Westborough, MA, 617-335-5303, www.tigerpresentations.com
Let There Be Light
Turn absolutely anything in your exhibit into a lighted surface when you use Light Tape, a patented electroluminescent technology that provides seamless, even illumination. Light Tape is thinner than a credit card, comes in sections that are up to 24 inches wide and 150 feet long, and can be operated from a single controller. The durable tape can be cut into custom shapes, produces no heat, and uses 40 percent less power than traditional LEDs. The product – which is available in a variety of colors – can be used for indoor or outdoor installations, and it attaches to surfaces with a nondamaging adhesive for the ultimate in flexibility. It is also highly impact resistant, and is able to withstand even a bullet and still illuminate. Contact: Light Tape, Richmond, VA, 804-355-1692, www.lighttape.com
A Quick Fix
Aluminum-extrusion frames for booth construction make exhibit building easier than ever before. But now QuickFix connectors have made the setup process even simpler. The connectors, which snap into place using tabs, join sections of Aluvision's Omni-55+ extrusion. Thanks to the locking brackets, frame pieces can be assembled on the fly into an ever-changing array of shapes and sizes without using tools. Contact: Aluvision Inc., Atlanta, 646-736-7317, www.aluvision.com
Get into the Groove
Fabric displays can take on all sorts of twists and turns when you build them with Moss Groove Rounded Corners, a new line of connectors that gives the Groove exhibit system unparalleled versatility. Corners can make rounded edges on flat panels, but also come in a version that will allow you to create 3-D designs out of your exhibit components. Curved pieces are available in standard lengths from 4 to 24 inches, and various bend radii give exhibitors the versatility to create any look desired. The corners are crafted of aluminum with flush-mount hardware for a clean appearance beneath fabric, and assembly is quick using Moss' patented tension-lock system.

Strategic Analysis
Spending valuable time sifting through Web analytics can be a schedule drain. But digital marketing is only as good as one's ability to manage, decipher, and use the information being received from social-media platforms, email campaigns, website visits, and marketing-automation platforms. Vonazon's Marketing Automation Support Services can save countless hours by translating all of that information into meaningful data that can be used to create sales alerts, generate follow-up contact, score leads, and more. Analytics and other reports are available via a Web-based portal, and services can be customized to the specific needs of a client. Contact: Vonazon, Simi Valley, CA, 818-357-5400, www.vonazon.com
Counter Productive
For a lightbox that is as functional as it is eye-catching, check out the new BT-Lightbox from Birttani Display Inc. that can double as a reception counter in your exhibit. The product is 39 inches tall, 46 inches wide, and 15 inches deep, and it comes with an acrylic base and countertop that can turn it into a useful surface for myriad applications. Using silicone-edge graphics, you can make the lightbox a single- or double-sided display, and the aluminum frame embedded with LED lights snaps together quickly for fast setup.
