MINNESOTA MANUFACTURER OF THE YEAR

SKYLINE EXHIBITS WINS MINNESOTA MANUFACTURER OF THE YEAR, BEST IN CLASS: LARGE COMPANY

Designer and Producer of Trade Show Exhibit Systems Receives Award for Overall Excellence In the Manufacturing Industry

ST. PAUL (September, 2014)  – Minnesota Business magazine has named Skyline Exhibits the Gold winner for the Minnesota Manufacturer of the Year, Best in Class: Large Company. The award recognizes overall excellence in the manufacturing industry in Minnesota. Skyline, based in Eagan, was also a top three finalist in 2013.

Nominated companies were judged on significant achievements over the past few years, in new products or services, competitive improvements and successes.

Skyline’s recent achievements include winning several exhibit design awards, new product design awards, winning the 2012 Outstanding Corporate Innovator Award given by the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA), and realizing growth 2 ½ times that of the exhibit industry.

New products and services include the launch of several new exhibit systems including Envoy®, which has become Skyline’s most popular system, and the revolutionary WindScape®, the world’s first air powered exhibit system – and Skyline’s fastest-growing system. Both received industry awards for product design. Skyline also launched its new Creative Services Group (CSG), which offers creative content services like 3D animations, videos and promotions to its clients through a worldwide Dealer network.

“We are deeply honored to receive this award. To have won this award in Minnesota, the land of Fortune 500 companies, makes it all the more impressive,” said Bill Dierberger, President, Skyline Exhibits. “I am so happy for our people, especially Tim Brengman, our Vice President of Operations. His leadership in this endeavor has been evident. The secret to our success is really no secret at all: it’s our people. Skyline’s worldwide employees and dedicated dealer network collaborate every day to create award-winning exhibits through designing with our proprietary and innovative products. The best evidence of this is the fact that 30% of our sales today come from products that were invented within the last 5 years. When you have earned in excess of 100 patents during 34 years and continue to ship exhibits at an on-time rate of 99.8%, it’s no wonder we are excited about our future.”

Posted on 08/09/2013 – 5:00pm | From the Blog
Skyline Exhibits, a St. Paul-based manufacturer of trade show displays and portable exhibits, recently launched Skyline WindScape, an inflatable, portable, all-in-one display setup. The idea behind the offering is that exhibitors can manage their entire exhibition through one easy-to-transport container. The system comes in 46 different shapes, ranging from small overlays to 16-foot-tall towers, and takes minutes to set up. See the promotional video below to see how it works.

Last year, Skyline Exhibits was awarded the Product Development and Management Association’s Outstanding Corporate Innovator Award. Within the past five years, the company reports, its new products have grown from 12 to 24 percent of total sales. Founded in 1980, the company has more than 120 design centers in over 30 countries, about 300 employees, and a network of about a thousand independent dealers.

Trade show exhibits might be a niche market, but Jon Althoff, senior director of global marketing for Skyline Exhibits, likes to think of trade shows as the “original social media.” —Ali Lacey

Skyline Exhibits has unveiled a new product line to its dealers and select media this month that company officials say will be a game changer for the exhibition industry. Called WindScape, the line consists of a series of inflated components that can be interchanged to create thousands of exhibit designs that are lightweight and assemble with unprecedented ease. Using a Skyline-patented technology of sturdy inner membranes and a portable inflator, exhibit components can be erected in minutes to create stylish, sturdy walls, conference rooms, towers, tabletop displays, and hanging elements.

Inflated, covered with dye-sublimated fabric graphics, and installed with various accessories like lights and tablets, the pieces look like ordinary exhibit components rather than bounce-house-style inflatables. But deflated, the displays fit compactly into travel cases that come small enough to be checked as baggage or even toted on the plane as carry-on luggage. A 20-foot island exhibit packs into two cases that can be converted into a counter in the booth, and ceiling elements that would have previously required hours of rigging are transformed into lightweight and relatively effortless impact statements for a display, collapsing into a duffle bag at the end of the show.
