ACI-NA 2019 Show Review!

The Arconas team has returned from another successful exhibition at ACI-NA in Tampa, FL. This year’s event saw more than 2100 attendees from over 200 airport and airport authorities in attendance. We were excited to share our latest seating, power, waste, and recycling solutions with attendees. The booth featured sections dedicated to each of these applications where product experts were able to showcase and demonstrate the products one-on-one with clients.

Arconas kicked off the show with our signature champagne reception. The Sunday night opening is always one of our favorite events. The atmosphere is relaxed, casual, and fun! Attendees sipped on some bubbly, nibbled on assorted cheese and fruits, and lounged in our array of seating options.

As attendees entered the room Arconas’ booth was highly visible with it’s stand-out banner, and colorful, blue Leaf Lamp tree at the center of the booth. This tree, along with the Nova C seating surrounding it are created by Arconas’ partner, Green Furniture Concept. Arconas has presented GFC several times now, but this year was the first time showing the company’s new perch and radius planter. The perch is a furniture option with a small foot-print that allows users to lean up against it during short wait periods. The perch and planter also come in curved and straight pieces that beautifully complement Nova C series.

The display of USM was also well-received and gained much interest in the booth. The modular counter systems were set up so that people could get a better sense of their adaptability for all airport applications. Different colored panels, as well as graphic decals, and magnets were on display to also show the flexible design options available for each unique environment.

Many attendees also found a comfortable, private spot in our Fractals chairs by Studio TK. Studio TK is a premium contract furniture company that creates furniture for lounge and casual settings. They offer a variety of soft seating options as well as tables that are appropriate for both hold rooms and VIP areas.

On day two of the conference our Vice President of Business Development, Lynn Gordon, and well as Sandra Afeyan, Green Furniture Concept’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing (Americas) presented at the solutions showcase. They talked to an enthusiastic crowd about the positive impact of experiential furniture and why airports around the world are looking beyond traditional seating.

Following this, in our booth attendees with treated to fresh, all-natural popsicles courtesy of Professor Pops – a local Florida company. Professor Pops kept guests cool by handing out 500 popsicles! We enjoyed running into attendees later who were still talking about the special and unique treats.

Thank you to everyone who made this year another great success! See you next year!
