IMEX 2018 Booth-v2
After countless hours of pre-planning, numerous digital renderings, measuring 20 times and cutting once, Merestone has completed and shipped the Arizona Convention and Visitor’s Bureau booth to Las Vegas for IMEX America 2018. All major components were built from scratch by Merestone’s top engineers, carpenters, and craftsmen to deliver the final product the client envisioned. During the months of pre-design, the client and Merestone thoroughly went over every piece to incorporate in this booth’s layout. From the metallic colors picked to the 15 foot diameter ceiling flyer, this booth was built with vision. It would take 289 days to share every detail that went into the building of this booth, however, to save time, here are a couple features to feature that will take 5 minutes to read.
Being noticed at a convention of over 5,000 attendees and 3,000 exhibitors is not an easy task. That’s why Merestone designed a monster in the sky to be seen from every corner of the Sands Convention Center. With a diameter of 15 feet, it’s hard to miss it hanging right over the client’s booth. Every detail of the flyer was hand selected by the client and crafted by the best engineers in the industry.
Custom LED Wall
It all started here. This center wall surrounds the LED panels to create a window effect. The client produced the perfect presentation of Arizona scenic shots to be displayed. Bright and beautiful, the LED panels have vibrant resolution that will accent every color in the Grand Canyon photos. While Merestone considered attendees checking in the front desk, the client also wanted a bar on the opposite side. This meant the LED wall needed to be double sided and the wall itself needed to double in size. Challenges presented themselves left and right, but Merestone’s craftsmen and carpenters were able to overcome them quickly and stay on schedule to ship everything from Phoenix to Las Vegas on time.

The Merestone scenic shop was at it again this year bringing Christmas cheer to the valley. Smoresland was hand carved and painted the marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers looked so good you may want to take a bite out of them. Santa’s mail room and headquarters was also set up and ready for the kids to get their letters to Santa.
