The company was honored for its work in the 400-499 square-foot exhibit category, which was showcased at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando last November.
The Monster City Studio’s team took an organic approach to the exhibit challenge, “Fresh Ideas Marketplace,” and constructed a booth from recycled shipping containers. The upcycled material was made to look like two old farmer’s market style buildings, creating the look and feel of a country store.
“We wanted our exhibit to be different from traditional booths and get back to the roots of our creative business. The goal was to inspire our customers and give them a fresh, new way to approach and grow their ideas from concept to project completion. The response was overwhelming and we couldn’t be happier,” said Richard Deaver, president of Monster City Studios.
The company specializes in themed marketing, offering custom designed foam, concrete, wood and metal fabrications.
Past local projects include 3D signage fro the Fresno Grizzlies’ Farm Grown Zone at Chukchansi Park and a model railroad set for the California Railroad Museum in Sacramento.
