Avanti LIVE

LIVE: the Avanti Tradeshow Experience | Schedule

We spotlight hot-off-the-press products and fixture innovations on a vibrant stage, cheered on by larger than life Avanti characters. Best of all, we invite visitors to step up to the microphone and go LIVE with their own one-liners and funny stories – because sharing relatable stories and making people laugh out loud is what the Avanti brands are all about!

The UPS Store Display Upgrade

 DISPLAY CODE DISP140UPS - 53" tall / 29.75" spin diameter  

The 140 pocket display was the hit of last year’s National Convention. It allows you to offer more variety by adding a tower of A*Press and wings featuring StandOuts™ and MOTION cards. It takes up the SAME amount of space but offers you so much more in customer selection and profit per square foot as a result.

200800 Woodward Ave Streetcar

Woodward Avenue Streetcar


 200800 Woodward Avenue Streetcar
In 1941, Detroit’s Department of Street Railways operated one of the most vibrant mass transit systems in the country, including 910 electric streetcars rumbling over a web of 20 railcar routes. By 1952, however, all but four lines had been converted to diesel busses: Michigan (its busiest and most profitable route), Woodward, Gratiot, and Jefferson. On Sunday, April 8, 1956, about 2,000 streetcar enthusiasts participated in the last ceremonial runs on Woodward. Afterwards the entire streetcar fleet was sold to Mexico City, where many continued to operate until a 1985 earthquake destroyed the last of them.

A Tigers fan peeks from behind one of the steel support beams holding up the second deck at Briggs Stadium. The park’s stands were so close to the action that fans could sometimes hear infielders chatting, but the price of such intimacy was thousands of obstructed view seats. While many fans regarded the posts as a major irritant, most dismissed them as just one of the quirks that helped make the stadium unique. “Like the assembly-line town it represented,”
essayist Peter Hyman eulogized after the stadium closed in 1999, “the ballpark was more workmanlike than elegant—full of imperfections but entirely lacking in pretense.”
