Displays2go Gains Industry-Wide Recognition at the SGIA Expo International Golden Image competition compares nearly 300 entries in 53 categories
Fall River, MA - The 2017 Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Expo brought together leaders of the specialty imaging industry this year in New Orleans, LA. In addition to a successful showcase, Displays2go, Fall River, Mass. was recognized in the Association's prestigious Golden Image Competition with a Gold Award for their collaboration with Siren Marine; “Siren Makes a Splash with SplashBox” in Category 20: Retail/POP Displays/Exhibits, Subgroup: Digital Entries.
“I am very proud of the Displays2go team,” said Dana Barrette, President of Displays2go. “Our work was compared to the best in the world, and we came out on top. That’s quite an accomplishment!”
More than 60 companies from around the world entered the competition, submitting nearly 300 entries in 53 product categories. Conducted during the 2017 SGIA Expo (New Orleans, LA, October 10-12), this year’s event was one of the most challenging in recent history.
“The judges had a very difficult time this year, not because of the sheer volume of entries, but because of the overall quality of the work. Judges in virtually every category told me the entries were so good that choosing winners was a real challenge,” said Johnny Shell, SGIA’s Vice President of Technical Services.
Shell added that the Golden Image competition is judged on the technical accomplishments of each entry, excluding aesthetic issues from the evaluation and scoring process. Prints are judged on the level of difficulty and quality of execution.
“Winning the Gold Award for Retail/POP Displays/Exhibits; Digital Entries puts Displays2go among the top specialty printers in the world in terms of quality and capability. The ability to consistently print such high-quality products indicates that Displays2go is an expert at controlling the many variables involved in specialty printing,” Shell said.
