Earlier this week, one Tuesday, September 11th, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake joined the Director of the Walters Art Museum to preside over the unveiling of the painting Tullip Folly at City Hall. This was just the first of several unveilings planned to take place as part of the new outdoor exhibition project, Off the Wall, a project put on by the Walters Art Museum in conjunction with the Department of General Services and the Department of Recreation and Parks and produced by Adler Display.
About Tullip Folly:
Jean-Leon Gérôme illustrates an incident during the “tulipomania,” or the craze for tulips, that swept the Netherlands and much of Europe during the 17th century. The tulip, originally imported from Turkey in the 16th century, became an increasingly valuable commodity. By 1636/7, tulipomania peaked, and, when the market crashed, speculators were left with as little as 5 percent of their original investments. In this scene, a nobleman guards an exceptional bloom as soldiers trample flowerbeds in a vain attempt to stabilize the tulip market by limiting the supply.
About Off the Wall:
Over the next several weeks, 22 total high-quality reproductions of vintage pieces from the Walters Art Museum will be popping up around Baltimore in museum-quality frames. These reproductions are printed on weather-resistant vinyl, ensuring that these pieces withstand the elements and bring joy to the people of Baltimore.
These reproductions will be on display November 2012 through April 2013 at the businesses, parks and community spaces listed on the map below. The art moves to new locations every six months, so visit thewalters.org for the latest downloadable map and keep your eyes peeled for new entries!

Behind any strong collegiate athletic program is a storied past, filled with important events, memorable games, and, of course, unforgettable athletes. Because of this, many colleges and universities seek to commemorate these athletes in some way, with one of the most popular being the Athletic Hall of Fame.
4 Considerations for Building an Athletic Hall of Fame

Our school display experts will work with you to create the most engaging display possible within your budget.

The Hall of Fame exhibit – which was the finishing touch on what was already a visually stunning facility – was unveiled to the public on Friday, November 4, 2011.

When they were in their early stages, Facebook famously paid a well-known graffiti artist in stock options to paint their lobby. That lobby décor ended up costing Mr. Zuckerberg $200 million or so. You can have a high impact lobby for far less.
Consider this: What is your lobby telling your customers? Companies put a lot of thought into their trade show booth, their logo and their website. But very often, a client walks into the main lobby of a business and the overall impression is bland at best, or confusing and detrimental to your brand at worst. If a new prospect or a new hire candidate walked into your main lobby today, how would they feel about your company? Once you take a hard look, the answer may not be what you want.
Some ideas to make a high impact impression:
1. Consider your audiences
It is critical to remember who is walking into your lobby and what message you want to deliver to them. For example, what do you want a new hire to see? What do you want your Board of Directors to see? Audiences range from students on a tour to key investors and you want to wow them all in the first 10-15 seconds. Ideas for creating impact include a large logo mounted on the wall, paint colors reflecting the brand palate and a custom-built reception desk that stands apart from the check-in desk.
Murphy Oil Corporation is a worldwide oil and gas exploration and production company with refining and marketing operations as well as retail gas stations.
2. Remember the tour
The corporate office tour should not consist of the receptionist simply walking someone to the conference room and answering a question or two on the way. Who is giving the tour of your facility? Is your lobby area going to have a visual presentation or an audio presentation or BOTH? Do you have a tour route? Do you have an employee-wide universal script for the right way to conduct a tour? Formalize your scripting and the route of the tour, and train the tour givers to be consistent. Build in stopping points with meaningful company artifacts along the way. A timeline or history wall can tell a great story quickly.

3. Match the lobby to the work
If you are a high tech firm, your lobby should say so in look, furnishings and the words or items on the walls. An old line law firm will look different than an advertising agency or high tech start up. Don’t confuse the visitor with a lobby look that is outdated or so generic that a stranger wouldn’t be able to define what you do while waiting for an appointment. Work in a monitor or digital signage with a fresh series of rotating messages if possible, and get away from the magazines and brochures on the table look.
Murphy Oil Corporation: The exhibits included a visual travel through the 100-year history of the company, its involvement in the community, its worldwide oil explorations, as well as Murphy Oil retail operations.

Since that time, Adler Display has grown into a nationally recognized provider of trade show displays and presentation graphics with a reputation for innovative, creative, and quality-oriented design and fabrication.

In just 75 years, Adler Display has grown from that small hand lettering company in the attic to a company providing customized trade show displays to both mid-market and international clients, and building custom corporate environments such as lobbies, conference rooms, history walls and corporate museums. We have created several renowned landmark projects, including: The Enchanted Forest in Ellicott City, Maryland, Frontier Town in Ocean City, Maryland, The Children’s Zoo in Baltimore City, Maryland, as well as Baltimore’s own “Nipper” the RCA dog.
Adler Display aims to help clients communicate their messages with a visual impact that says it all, without saying a word.

Okay, your trade show is over. Now what? Well, now the real work begins. Don’t let your leads fall into the Sales Lead Black Hole, where 80% of trade show leads inevitably wind up. It is time to take advantage if those trade show leads / sales leads!
Tips for Lead Generation Follow Up
Organize & Prioritize: Take a few minutes to evaluate your priorities and organize them for follow-up. Remember, your current clients should always come before prospects. Don’t ignore you current clients to go after a sales lead.
Sort Through the Sales Leads: Follow up with your most promising sales leads right away! Your hot leads should be followed up (by phone unless they have requested otherwise) within one or two days of show close.
Follow-Up Your Follow-Up: Your initial follow up is most likely the first time your potential client will hear from you, but it should by no means be the last. If you have time, continue to work leads until they pan out. Do not give up on a hot lead because they declined to take immediate action. Add them to your mailing list, your e-mail list, your holiday cards list – whatever means of consistent communication your company does. Even though these prospects have not purchased yet, they should still be considered good potential clients.
So what are you waiting for? Start following up with those trade show leads!
