ARCHDALE, N.C. -- Vecoplan’s “Shredding Frenzy” booth at NPE  earned a Platinum MarCom Award. Apple Rock Advertising & Promotion, Inc created the booth for Vecoplan and entered it, under the Ads/Tradeshow Exhibit category, in the MarCom competition. Apple Rock built the custom display using extrusion and fabric, and included a “Shark-Tank” conference room complete with swimming shark porthole windows via video monitors. This same booth won a Platinum Hermes award earlier last year.

The MarCom Awards is an international competition for marketing and communications professionals and is the largest competition of its kind, with more than 6,000 entries in 200 categories each year.  The mission of the MarCom Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and generosity of marketing and communications professionals.

The competition is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals, which also sets standards for excellence within the industry. Judges are creative professionals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.

Vecoplan, the world leader in shredding technologies, used its NPE booth as a platform to promote their plastics shredders and HyroDyn plastics washing lines, both integral components in recycling  systems. Vecoplan designs, engineers, manufactures, installs, commissions, and provides ongoing parts and service for systems used in industrial recycling.   

“True leaders align themselves with other leaders,” said Kim James, Marketing Communications Director at Vecoplan. “As a leader in technologies for a sustainable tomorrow, Vecoplan is proud to partner with the leader in trade show technologies – Apple Rock.”
