NARA Soars with ShowBox on Grand Outdoor Exhibit Space for NBAA Convention

Objectives Achieved

Attract visitors into their tent via a grand entrance
Mirror the first class quality of NARA aircrafts


When 26,000 aviation professionals come together in one location, your booth better be prepared to soar with the best. So when NARA (National Aircraft Resale Association) was in the midst of coordinating its appearance at the annual NBAA2014, it was looking to make nothing short of a grand first impression. NARA looked to ShowBox Exhibits to stage its enormous outdoor 110, 000 square foot presentation space.


NARA selected an enclosed 30×30 framed tent with full frontal glass panels and doors allowing an open view of the airplanes displayed on the tarmac. ShowBox provided a large circular custom made rug to formalize the aircraft exhibits. To achieve a “grand entrance” effect. ShowBox customized a contemporary ranch-style entrance tower with the NARA logo at the peak and its member logos down the side columns. The entryway into the tent was lined with white velvet rope dividers and Nara blue trade show banners. Another custom-made rug imprinted with NARA’s logo made way for a “blue carpet entrance” into the exhibit space.
Inside the tent, it was all about creating a world-class experience. Tables draped in white linen and matching white chairs contrasted the dark gray frieze carpeting. Several NARA banners and catalog towers were specially manufactured for the event.

When people hear ‘ShowBox Exhibits,’ they automatically think of exhibit or booth construction for the quintessential convention or conference. But they do much more than that,ShowBox has proven it can handle grand scale event coordination for events such as NBAA.
