Global Exhibit Companies To Hold Press Conference To Discuss at EuroShop 2014 their Distribution Partnership Agreement of the Skyline® WindScape® Exhibit System Outside of the U.S. & Canada.


DUSSELDORF, GERMANY — February 16, 2014 — At EuroShop 2014, two of the world’s leading exhibit companies will hold a press conference to discuss their recent distribution agreement of the breakthrough new Skyline® WindScape® exhibit technology. The press conference will be on Tuesday, February 18, 2014, at 13:00 in Skyline Exhibit’s Stand, which is Hall 9, Stand D40.



Featured at the press conference will be presentations by Bill Dierberger, President, Skyline Exhibits, and Hans Bruder, Managing Director, Octanorm. The Skyline® WindScape® Exhibit System will also be demonstrated.



Last July, U.S. based Skyline Exhibits, a leading designer and producer of exhibits and graphics for trade shows and marketing events, formally agreed with Octanorm®, GmbH to have the Germany based company promote and distribute Skyline's new technology -- the Skyline® WindScape® Exhibit System - outside of the U.S. and Canada.



Skyline dealers in the U.S. and Canada are distributing the new product in their respective countries. Throughout the rest of the world, the product is distributed by Skyline's global network of dealers along with Octanorm Service Partners International (OSPI). Octanorm, based in Filderstadt, Germany, has an extensive exhibit and event distributor network.



"The use of the Skyline and Octanorm networks will lead to stronger initial distribution and faster adoption of the new Skyline® WindScape® technology around the world," stated Dierberger. "We are truly excited to offer this high quality, exhibitor-friendly system to the world." Both companies continue to independently distribute their other products.



“We announced our agreement last summer,” said Dierberger. “Now, at EuroShop, the world’s largest trade fair for exhibition builders, both Skyline Exhibits and Octanorm are revealing for the first time the Skyline® WindScape® display technology to a huge, global audience of exhibit builders and exhibitors.” Both Skyline and Octanorm are actively demonstrating Skyline® WindScape® in their EuroShop 2014 stands in Hall 9. Skyline is in Stand D40, while Octanorm, which has 3 stands at EuroShop, features Skyline WindScape in Stand A41.



Revolutionary Exhibit Technology



Skyline® WindScape® is the world's first air-powered exhibit system. Frames are inflated with the push of a button rather than assembled like traditional exhibit systems. Customized, double-sided fabric graphics come pre-attached so installation is quick and easy. A 3-meter backwall display goes from case to exhibit ready in under 7 minutes, with no tools.



"We are excited to offer this new technology to our clients, and to fully introduce Skyline® WindScape® to our large gathering of OSPI partners at EuroShop," stated Bruder. "We think many exhibitors will appreciate the ease of operation and the related cost savings that come with a system that's so lightweight and packs so small yet looks so impressive. This product will bring significant and long lasting changes to the Exhibit and Event Industry."



Skyline® WindScape® launched with 46 shapes ranging from a small tabletop display and 3-meter backwalls to larger conference rooms and even 5.5-meter diameter hanging structures.



Including the inflator, the tabletop model fits in a backpack, while a 10-foot backwall display fits in a carry-on case stowable in a plane's overhead bin.
