11/07/2015 – Nightingale goes interactive at NEOCON East 2015

NEOCON East found a new home in Philadelphia, PA for 2015 and the show was a huge success for Nightingale. The Pennsylvania Convention Center was a buzz with excitement as all of the exhibitors and attendees settled into their new environment. This year Nightingale’s booth was in an interactive experience for all guests. Accompanying our usual samples of industry leading seating options, our booth also featured a complimentary espresso bar complete with professional baristas who whipped up everything from straight black coffee to pumpkin spice lattes, with a little touch of foam art for good measure. In addition we had an onsite live demonstration of our popular modular club chair, the Danforth II. Guests were amazed at how easily and quickly this full size club chair assembled and disassembled right in front of them. These simple features made the Nightingale booth a very welcoming environment for colleagues, customers and old friends to come together during the show. Nightingale would like to thank all of the attendees, organizers and fellow exhibitors for making NEOCON East 2015 one of the best and most enjoyable shows Nightingale has been a part of.
