Sun-Maid Is Honored with “Best of Show”
at Fresh Summit New Orleans
The 250,000 square-feet exhibit
hall at the New Orleans Convention Center was filled with more than 1,000
exhibits, and the Produce Marketing Association judges selected Sun-Maid
Growers as Best of Show in the Island Booth Category at Fresh Summit, held Oct.

“We are ecstatic that we won
and we are very honored,” said John Slinkard, Vice President of Customer & Supply
Chain Services for Sun-Maid Growers of California. “We think our booth is dramatic
and represents our brand very well.”
“One of the big challenges
and the impetus behind the exhibit design was to revitalize the iconic Sun Maid
girl logo and bring it into the current era,” noted Arthur Patryk, an exhibit
consultant with Skyline who created the exhibit.
“This exhibit also had to
adapt to the various layouts in different convention centers,” said Patryk. “In
New Orleans, the elaborate 4-sided exhibit had equal representation of branding
on the front and back, as well as the sides, with huge images of the famous
Sun Maid just celebrated
their 100th anniversary, and that was incorporated in the exhibit space.
The award-winning exhibit was
introduced four years ago in Orlando, then Atlanta, Anaheim and New Orleans.
