enVu to Commemorate EDPA’s 65th Anniversary with a Virtual Exhibit and Design Museum
Dayton, OH—February 27, 2019— enVu will commemorate The Experiential Designers and Producers Association 65th anniversary this year, by collecting, curating and archiving photos and documents for EDPA members to reference and enjoy in a virtual museum and living archive. enVu, part of the STRATACACHE family of marketing technology companies, will present the project at the EDPA Access event in December 2019.
The online museum features a searchable visual database in which visitors can build their own view of the room they are in based on categories, places and timelines. EDPA began in December 1954 as a group of exhibit and design entrepreneurs and business people met to cement relationships and form new partnerships, and since that time have continued to grow and shape the exhibit and design industry into what it is today. enVu has digitized pictures and articles to start the baseline of the museum. The project will continue to grow through updates from the EDPA community as a whole including members, the chapters and the foundation.
“enVu is honored to take the time and celebrate the rich history of this industry and organization through this virtual museum and living archive of the EDPA,” said Jimmy Abraham, COO of enVu. “As a company that is always looking forward with innovation and technology, we know it is important to acknowledge and celebrate those that came before us. The museum will help the next generations of exhibitors understand the roots and beginnings of EDPA without losing sight of the industry’s growth and change.” Having a central archive for all this information will allow the EDPA to stay updated for many more generations. Additionally, EDPA looks to grow its membership through greater awareness gained through the project.
“Over my 35-year career I’ve seen a lot of changes and innovations. But as quickly as things evolve, important things stay the same — connections and partnerships built this business, and they will continue to do so in the future,” said Dalton Jenkins, EDPA, past President.
enVu will collect relevant items to be included in the archive throughout the year. Learn more at www.envu.com/edpa65/.
