Exhibitslist was on the show floor of the North American International Auto Show 2009 at Cobo Hall in Detroit this morning during the massive dismantle. Guess what? Doesn't seem like the poor economy is affecting exhibit sizes at this important show! There were some truly awesome booths. Exhibit Works and George P. Johnson seemed to rule the show floor, however there were a number of quality installations by German exhibit houses including KLARTEXT.
One thing we did not notice was a great evidence of a tilting toward "green" exhibiting. Maybe next year. We talked with a lot of the installers on the floor and heard a little bit of apprehension about the upcoming months in the industry. The circuit continues next week in Chicago when the install for the Auto Show starts at McCormick Place.
Were you at the Auto Show? What trends did you notice? What booth impressed you?
