NanoLumens® Partners With Emerald Expositions and Pixelfire to Create Spectacular Entrance to GlobalShop 2015

Underscoring the role interactive display technology is playing in shaping the future of retail design, Emerald Expositions, producers of the annual GlobalShop Show, is partnering with NanoLumens® (, the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of indoor LED visual display solutions, to create a spectacular interactive entrance to GlobalShop 2015, which runs from March 24—26, 2015 in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

In selecting NanoLumens to create this new entranceway, Doug Hope, Vice President of Content at Emerald Expositions, said, “Because GlobalShop is the largest retail design trade show in the nation, we are always looking for ways to make a relatable design statement to the retail industry. In the newly expanded Mandalay Bay Convention Center, we have the additional challenge of scale in that most entrance units used by trade shows are dwarfed by the size of the Center.

“Compounding this is the rapidly accelerating fusion of digital and physical in the retail industry.  As a result, it became very clear to us that what we needed to do in 2015 was to create a large-scale digital project that is able to create an unmistakable entrance destination. With NanoLumens, GlobalShop is able to achieve all of the elements with one company’s product.  An added benefit to the NanoLumens solution is that the substrate is lightweight enough so that it can be rigged in the overhead structures of Mandalay Bay without any modifications,” Hope emphasized. 

According to NanoLumens Vice President of Marketing & Business Development Nate Remmes, NanoLumens is pulling out all of the stops to create an entranceway that will stop show attendees in their tracks and engage them in a way they have never experienced before.  “We’re working with Pixelfire to create a 21st century visual experience that showcases how the latest web and native app technologies deliver multi-screen solutions that meet the growing demands of today's online, mobile and social consumers.”

According to Pixelfire President Steve Bumstead, “Pixelfire is renowned for creating stunning, out-of-the-box digital content that takes advantage of the very latest in display technology.  NanoLumens’ technology is the very best out there and we really looking forward to showcasing how our creative thinking can push the envelope in creating an immersive digital experience that is unique to GlobalShop and the retail channel of the 21st century.”
