Floor Graphics Help Conventioneers Find Their Way to Special Meetings and Events

Even if a trade show officially closes at 5 or 6 pm, that doesn’t mean business is done for the day. Companies that exhibit at trade shows often schedule after-hours parties, meetings, or seminars for their dealers, franchisees, top customers, and the press. Many of these events are held in the big hotels surrounding major conference centers.

In Orlando, the Print Services Division of 11th Hour Business Solutions produces some of the large-format event graphics that go beyond what a hotel’s onsite business center is typically equipped to deliver. According to 11th Hour’s Print Services Director Mark Jacques, his team produces graphics that can help attendees find the right location within the hotel, recognize event sponsors, and bring a sense of corporate identity and excitement to the meeting space itself. Whether the event planner wants something as simple as posters on easels or more elaborate graphics such as wall graphics, banners, column wraps, or floor graphics, 11th Hour’s Print Services Division is prepared to deliver.
