FB Displays & Designs, Inc., (FBD2) partnered with Empire State Honey Producers Association, Inc. (ESHPA) in designing a full size exhibit. The display made its debut at the 2018 NYS Fair held in Syracuse, NY.
The multi-quad display features a 16ft back wall with end towers and two wide TV monitors for demonstration. A large center area for dry-erase panels served to actively involve and educate Fair attendees in the honey producing process . The “all-over” print nature of the multi-quad display allowed for an enormous macro shot of honeycombs.
This was ESHPA’s first display and we at FBD2 are thrilled that we contributed to this new endeavor. And to our delight, ESPHA received of the H.S. Duncan Memorial Award for Best Educational Display in Horticulture at the 2018 NYS Fair.
“The exhibit was very eye-catching. We had our observation beehive in front of it with a monitor and a video microscope that we could use to show folks the bees up-close. We also had a nifty little digital microscope that simply magnified a (dead) bee that kids/parents/anyone could study to see all the anatomical details “up close”. I’m pooped but we had a very successful 2-week run. And a lot of that was thanks to your display!” – Christina Wahl, Ph.D., Department of Biomedical Sciences, Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine.
