Apple Rock Introduced Innovative Product to the Market - The Glide

GREENSBORO, NC – As a leader in the event display marketing business for 21 years, Apple Rock continues to bring new and innovative products to the market. Apple Rock presents the new portable exhibit system -- Glide™. Manufactured by Exponents, Inc. and winner of the Buyer’s Choice Award as the industry’s best new product at EXHIBITOR2009 Conference in Las Vegas, Glide is a low-cost system with an unusual oval-shaped background designed to stand out from the crowd and the first portable exhibit specifically designed to support a large-screen LCD monitor.

With trade show graphics quickly moving from printed backdrops to digital content, most portable exhibits are unable to support a 36" LCD monitor - one that is large enough to dramatically communicate an exhibitor's main message. Glide is the first portable exhibit system that features video presentations as a key component of the booth, not as an afterthought.

The Glide system's 8-foot tall tower not only holds the video monitor and a shelf, but also provides integrated locking storage. Mounted to the sides of the tower is the large oval background banner, illuminated by compact fluorescent edge lighting or optional LED lighting. For a more conventional look, a rectangular backdrop is available. Models that support simple graphic overlays, shelving slat wall, and computer workstations are available, too.

Set-up time is only 30 minutes and an entire 10'x10' exhibit fits into a single rolling roto-molded case. A 10'x20' configuration is available, with the banner extending between two 8' tall towers. The larger configuration packs into two rolling cases. The Glide system is an environmentally responsible exhibit. Lightweight and recyclable materials, recycled finishes and banner, LED and fluorescent lighting all ensure a small carbon footprint.

"We’re very excited to offer this product to our customers,” states Eric Burg, CEO of Apple Rock. “Not only is this product environmentally friendly, it’s also an affordable option that sets up quickly and easily and supports a large screen video. Best of all, it’s unique with its unusual look – it will definitely get noticed on the exhibit floor.”
