Deepwater Hockway Alliance at Offshore Europe show

How do you make a small stand with a lot to say stand out at a busy exhibition?

Set with this task, Rubbaglove created a two minute AV presentation for The Deepwater Hockway Offshore Alliance stand at the Offshore Europe show in Aberdeen.

The AV piece communicates the full story and product catalogue of the Alliance, and captivated passers by. It was projected onto the back wall of the stand using an advanced short-throw projector. The AV allowed us to say much more than with traditional methods, while still showing graphics. It brought the stand to life.

The presentation was supported by brochures, banners, posters and other promotional materials, also created by Rubbaglove.
