Innovative Displays Establishes PPE Resource Center at Columbus Convention Center
Printing and signage company Innovative Displays, a partner of Greater Columbus Convention Center in Ohio, is establishing a Personal Protective Equipment Resource Center within the venue featuring an online ordering portal and curbside order delivery. ID expanded its offerings to assist clients and the community during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Innovative Displays is not just our company name, it’s also the way we do business,” said said ID President Mike Foley. “Our unique ability allowed us to quickly pivot during the pandemic utilizing our existing design, engineering and manufacturing to launch an entire PPE product division.”
Since March, the company has invested more than $2 million in developing over two dozen new products and will continue to expand its offerings. Foley added, “We are proud to be the preferred supplier for many of the world’s largest companies executing programs throughout North America.”
ID’s wholesale distribution portal offers sustainable, FDA-approved, ADA-compliant, medical-grade products made in North America. More than 95 percent of the products are manufactured in ID’s plants in Canada and Columbus.
Customers utilize an online portal to order PPE, sanitizing and hygiene products by selecting the desired item number and quantity and uploading artwork for custom orders, such as company logos. Minimum ordering quantities and delivery times vary by product.
Available items currently include floor decals, face shields, sanitizer, sanitizer dispensers and holders, custom PPE indoor and outdoor graphics, partitions, sneeze guards and miscellaneous items, such as door pulls and 10-packs of disposable face masks.
Once orders are placed at this link, customers receive a confirmation and follow-up email from ID with an estimated timeframe for picking up bulk orders or a delivery confirmation. Contactless curbside delivery is located at the convention center’s east connector turnaround. An on-site team is ready to assist with pickups Monday through Friday. Orders can also be shipped.
“This is an exciting partnership for both companies and supports our community in its need to resume business safely and responsibly,” said GCCC Assistant General Manager Sue Graves. “It is great to work with such innovative thinkers and help build a sense of confidence, comfort and safety during these tough times.”
GCCC reopened on June 1 and has several upcoming events, including the 2020 USA Powerlifting Ohio State Championship on Aug. 29. To learn more about the ASM Global-managed center, which has 373,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space and 75 meeting rooms, go here.
