This year marks the 40th anniversary of Nomadic Display providing exhibitors with innovative trade show displays designed to build their brand and business.

Founded in 1975 by Theodore “Ted” Zeigler, Nomadic was a pioneer in the exhibit industry. After studying R. Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic design principles, Zeigler invented Instand®, the first self-locking pop up display. Zeigler established Nomadic Display to manufacture and market his invention. To commemorate his ground-breaking contribution to the industry, Exhibitor Magazine established The Zeigler Award as a top honor. It is bestowed by a panel of judges to the highest scoring entry in the magazine’s annual portable and modular display design competition.

Since its founding, Nomadic has delivered more than a quarter million trade show exhibits to exhibitors around the world and earned more than 20 awards for design excellence. Product offerings have expanded from portables to include a wide range of modular and custom trade show booths, exhibit rentals and graphics.

Nomadic Display attributes its successful longevity to customer-driven product and service solutions. In addition to the first pop-up, Nomadic Display was first to offer a lifetime warranty on display systems and first to introduce a 24/7 global emergency LifeLine.

“The inspiration we get from our customers has fueled our creativity for four decades,” said Pat Goeke, President and CEO. “In addition, we are fortunate to have built trusted relationships with international distribution partners who are leaders in their respective markets.”

Nomadic Display will celebrate its ruby anniversary at EXHIBITORLive being held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas on March 2-4, 2015. Nomadic will share its history of achievement in bringing exhibitors’ stories to life through creative and results-driven exhibits in a dramatic and color infused 400 sq. ft. display of their own (booth 1615).
