Impact XM Honored as Silver Stevie® Award Winner in 2020 American Business Awards®
The Experiential Marketing and Global Event Agency is recognized for Exhibition Experience.
Dayton, NJ –Impact XM, a global event and experiential marketing agency, was presented with a Silver Stevie® Award in the Brand & Experiences – Exhibition Experience category in the 18th Annual American Business Awards®.
The American Business Awards is the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.
Impact XM was honored for the exhibit designed and produced for biotechnology company Acorda Therapeutics at the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting in 2019. The exhibit was centered around a new therapeutic drug for Parkinson’s disease.
“A very serious product presented very well through colors, kiosks and information booths. Special effects brought this serious product to life,” shared one judge. Another noted the “Strong use of experience design. The bridge element used as way-finding draws in the attendee and leads them on the journey.”
Additional exhibit highlights include:
- “Bubble Pop” – a unique hosted interactive game that helped to drive activity and engagement in the space. The game consisted of product-centric questions and was projected on two 80″ LED touchscreens.
- Theater presentations featuring Key Opinion Leaders.
- Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) personalized touchscreen interactives to track visitors’ journey within the exhibit and to tailor each attendee’s experience.
- Infographic-rich kiosks with touchscreen learning stations and animated attract loops to educate on the product.
- A large sail that was brand specific to Acorda Therapeutics. The organic shapes and use of color helped Acorda to stand out in a crowded marketplace.
“We are extremely honored to be recognized by the Stevie Awards. This award is a testament to our team’s ability to create experiences that are highly immersive, engaging, and informative,” said Steve Mapes, Senior VP of Strategy at Impact XM. “I am proud of our diverse array of talent – everyone on the Impact XM team works hard to provide unparalleled integrated client solutions that leave a lasting impact.”

We celebrate all of their stories and look forward to showcasing them during our virtual awards ceremony on August 5.”
