Thales is a global technology leader for the aerospace, space, defense, security and transportation markets. Thales wanted to launch its “In-flight Entertainment System” at the 2006 Aircraft Interior Expo in Hamburg, Germany to an audience of airline representatives and vendors. DisplayWorks built a replica of a custom fuselage at its facility in Irvine, CA and shipped it to Germany. The interior of the fuselage was a mock up of an aircraft with plush seating, platforms and an “In-flight Entertainment System”. Once the fuselage arrived at the show in Germany, a rental exhibit was built around the fuselage to include a storage tower, ID tower and a reception counter. This was the perfect blend using custom and rental properties.
