Mobile stand National Parks Austria
The project "National Parks Austria Public Relations 2012-2014" aims at coordinating common public relations activities of all Austrian National Parks. In the course of this project. E.C.O. was comissioned to plan and design an exhibition stand to represent the six austrian national parks. This shall be used to jointly represent all Austrian national parks at exhibitions and events.
The exhibition stand shall be interactive, flexible, transportable and allow for single use of individual elements to meet the reqirements of different types of events.
It is based on appealing photo exhibition showing the unique landscapes, animals and plants, which are to be found in the parks. However, the highlight of the exhibition stand is a "photo-box" for visitors of the stand. Inside the box an automatically-releasing camera takes snapshots of visitors in front of one of six different background images of the national park of their choice. After taking the picture, it is printed immediately as asouvenir for visitors. Additionally, it is possible email it on-the-spot or to share it with friends on the internet. With a great success, the brand-new exhibition stand was first presented to the public during the "Interpädagogica" in Graz in mid November 2013 and again used during annual conference of National Parks Austria in December 2013.
