Personal Focus. Exceptional Design. This was the centerpiece message of our 2018 campaign for ExhibitorLive 2018. It is more than just a message or a campaign. It stands for how and why we do what we do every day. We just had a blast sharing that with the hundreds and hundreds of people that came by our exhibit to say hi.
Zig Zibit is thrilled to announce the addition of Reid Phillips and Miranda Gardner to the Project Management and Design teams respectively. Reid and Miranda bring passion and excellence in everything they do both inside and outside of Zig Zibit and we could not be prouder to have them on the team.
As we pack up the team to head to Exhibitor 2018, I can’t help but reflect on how far we have come as a company in a year. Nothing says how much we are changing than the fact we were named one of the top 50 fastest growing companies in the Triangle in 2017.
Enjoy a day in the life of Zig Zibit. From parking his amazing custom Jeep to working through production, Zig Zibit is living the "exhibit envy" life.

Craig Kassan turns wood into works of art. For over 6 years, Craig has created amazing exhibits, displays and trade show environments as a master fabricator. For over 25 years he has been an artist-in-wood creating stunning sculptures and fine furniture from raw wood. “The versatility of wood is what I love. You can do so much with wood – build a house, create furniture, sculpt, mold, carve…you can do anything”.
For any company, a trade show program can be a major investment. That goes double for companies trying to break into new geographic or economic markets.
For these companies, a rental display can be a good choice to start. It allows them to keep their upfront costs low while maintaining professional-looking exhibits that represent their brands and their products well.
For some companies, rental displays are a good long-term strategy. But for companies wanting to “graduate” to custom displays, making that move can be a challenge, budget-wise. One of our clients went through that recently, and we worked with them to find a solution that met their needs for a custom booth at a cost they could afford.
To Keith Erickson, seeing his name in the long, rolling credits at the end of the movie would be more than enough. That, and the satisfaction of knowing he built the sets that framed all of the action and drama.
Keith did get a taste of working in show business when he worked on set construction for some commercials and for one season of the television program, “The Game.” Today he works in the slightly less glamorous world of trade show exhibits as our CNC router operator.
Creating a trade show exhibit is an exciting, creative process, both for us and our clients. Sure it can be stressful and hectic, but seeing the end result somehow makes it all worthwhile.
As fun as that process is, our clients often tell us that the process of selecting an exhibit vendor can be long and arduous, especially if they have to go through an RFP process.
One of our clients was able to avoid the RFP pain and go right to the fun part, working with us to create an ambitious custom exhibit.
When it comes to trade shows, there are two things you can count on. The first is that nothing will go as planned. With so many moving parts, there are countless ways things can go wrong.
As an exhibitor, you have enough to worry about, especially your staff and customers, and generating leads and sales during the show. One of the best things you can do is work with a dedicated crew to manage the on-site construction, tear-down, and at-show management of the exhibit.
