Three phone calls. That’s all it took for Kount’s new custom tradeshow Island Exhibit to get done.

When their management team was preparing for the CNP Expo in San Francisco, Kount wanted to take their exhibit in a new direction. With a big vision and short timeframe, they turned to TideLine Design. Behind those three calls were a long relationship and TideLine Design’s two decades of tradeshow experience. Having that kind of trust in our company, Kount could prepare for the expo worry-free, knowing TideLine would take care of all the complicated details.

Kount was looking to go big. They had worked with TideLine Design for several years on booth design, inventory storage, and show services. But a new management team at Kount wanted to consider something different for their exhibition presence.

As the team determined their vision for their Island Exhibit at CNP Expo in San Francisco, time grew short. Kount also knew they needed a company they could depend on to handle all the show details, freeing them to promote their brand.

Looking to make a splash with a spectacular Island Exhibit, the team at Kount took proposals, and after careful consideration turned to TideLine Design again.


Knowing the client wanted something more extensive than their previous exhibits, we proposed a booth that incorporated height, strategic lighting, and movement, to establish Kount’s presence on the show floor and reflect their market-leading status. When our proposal was accepted, we were very excited for the booth build.

We started with three separate 16-foot towers, with halo-lit graphics in a matching pantone, gloss laminates, and a 7×16-foot backlit graphic. On the center wall, we incorporated LED digital tiles. These displayed a waterfall of zeroes and ones—the data Kount protects—moving in and out of static graphics. We unified the three towers with a custom canopy utilizing inset puck lighting. Finally, we arranged three separate meeting areas with custom counters and furnishings.

The booth was visually stunning, but our behind-the-scenes show management really made things run smoothly. As part of our proposal, we managed their complete program. Our management included ancillary services, storage management on-site and in Boise, compliance with show regulations, and booth setup and teardown.


With so much change for one show, Kount needed to focus on what they do best. Even with a grand exhibit and complicated logistics, three phone calls with TideLine when questions arose was all it took. Our client knew they could count on us to make it happen, and we were thrilled to do it.

Client Testimonial

“I started at Kount during the peak of trade show season and was frantically trying to get all my events planned as they came up. The one thing I didn’t have to worry about was the booth from TideLine Design. Bill took time to understand our brand, and created a design that was exactly what we were looking for. It was so great having them support us when I had so much else going on. I knew that they would deliver up to standards, and in fact – the booth exceeded my expectations!”
