BIG Show Bumpers

LAI Video combines Leading Authorities’ sharp sense of “showography” with its mastery of “motionography” to build custom, multi-screen and edge blend graphic scenery. For the National Retail Federation’s BIG Show Convention & Expo, our team of designers whipped up a series of bumper and introduction videos that grabbed attendees’ attention while promoting key information about keynote speakers.

Classic Bumpers

A short, punchy bumper video is a great way to ignite a general session. For BIG Show, Dan and Anthony extend the year’s branding into a sweeping, booming logo reveal that reassures attendees that the show is about to start — and it’s going to be good. This type of energy also adds a layer of professional credibility. This isn’t a boring industry trade show with slapped-on speeches. The main stage presentations matter. And they’re BIG.

Introducing Intro Bumpers

For the five previous BIG Shows, we produced dozens of a speaker introduction videos that would were solid. Voice over narration overviewed each speaker’s bio and positioned them as experts on particular retail issues. But in an effort to maximize show-flow and minimize video-minutes, we invented the “intro bumper,” a loud, voiceless video that graphically roll-calls keynote speakers with a buzzy graphic treatment and fun trivia facts. The eight intro bumpers also took advantage of the year’s unique, asymmetric set. Working with the AV production company, we helped stick together five separate renderings into one massive, cohesive experience.
