Congratulations to the 2013 Best of Show Winners and Finalists!

Best Island Booth:
Sun-Maid Growers of California

Sun-Maid had a bright, cheery exhibit that creatively used their products to add to the design of the booth. Representatives were easy to identify and very proactive towards attendees. New products were well marked and displayed in the exhibit.

Best Inline Booth: Amerlux Lighting

Not only were they one of the best-lit exhibits in the hall, but their clear messaging and displays allowed the attendee to visualize how their store might appear if they purchased Amerilux lighting.

Best New Product Launch: Sambazon

Sambazon used vibrant, clear messaging to communicate the benefits of their new product line both online and on-site. Their shelf educated attendees with a creative display, while their booth included large signage and samples to promote their newest introduction.

Best First-Time Exhibitor: It'sFresh!

This 10x20 exhibit was very clean, bright, open and well laid out. They had just the right amount of signage to clearly communicate who they were and what they offer. Staff were cheerful and enthusiastic in talking with visitors. Several were positioned near the aisle and easily and proactively greeted visitors passing by.
