Get Funky with PPG

By: Ann Donati

When Jody started this awesome blog, she prefaced it by stating that it would include "anything and everything" that happened in the industry and at events.
Well, the following definitely falls under that category.

Last week at the SEMA show, Dave displayed two of his bikes in the PPG booth.
Traditionally, these industry shows can tend to be boring, typical and corporate, YAWN, YAWN, YAWN. However, this year PPG decided to be a little different and stand-out from their competitors (actually, from everyone.) We wanted the booth to be FUN and make people remember us.

We decided to go with a late 60's - early 70's retro theme. This was largely due to some new pigments that we were launching from that era.

Our booth colors, cars, motorcycles, furniture, music and lava lamps all represented that time period! Even our give-away candy was from that time period; remember Pop-Rocks, Bottle caps, Atomic Fireballs, Mary Jane's and Razzles!

The staff uniforms also had a retro look to them. However, on Halloween we decided to REALLY go outside of the corporate box and everyone working the booth wore their own costume from that era. There was even some money on the table for the person with the best costume... so you know we were serious! We were in Vegas, after all, there had to be a little wager.

You might be asking "what did Dave wear that day," but you will need to keep asking because there are no pictures of Dave from Halloween. So, you will have to decide for yourself if Dave came in costume or not... What do you think??? Does Dave have a FUNKY side???
Hope your Halloween was memorable! And your next tradeshow "outside the box!"
