June 10, 2015 – Vecoplan’s NPE 2015 ‘Shredding Frenzy’ booth was recently honoured with a platinum Hermes Creative Award. The Hermes Creative Awards were established over three decades ago to honour the messengers and creators of traditional and developing media. The booth was entered into the competition by Vecoplan’s exhibit and manufacturing company, Apple Rock Advertising and Promotions, Inc.

The highest achievement from Hermes, the Platinum Award was won in the category of advertising and trade show exhibits for the custom design and build of a display. The “Shredding Frenzy” exhibit featured a shark tank meeting room, fully loaded interactive technology space and a hanging sign that used lights and computer images to project sharks. Fifteen per cent of entries submitted won the Platinum award.

“NPE 2015 was one of the most successful trade shows we’ve ever participated in and our shark-themed booth contributed greatly to that success,” said Kim James, marketing director of Vecoplan, LLC. “It literally stopped attendees in their tracks and enticed them onto our booth. I think this award winning exhibit is a perfect example of a true team effort-paying off in big time ROI.”
