Exhibition touch screen design and programming for the Paris Air show


We’ve been busy developing an interactive exhibition display for the Paris Air Show. The 42″ portrait screens certainly throw up some interesting user interface challenges — keeping buttons in reach for one!  And making 130+ screens accessible within a couple of touches.

The touch screen software was designed and developed in Adobe Director, which is ideal for the large touch screen projects. Using large touch displays has many advantages rather than iPad tablets, they catch peoples attention as they look around any exhibition. We combined video and animation on the opening screen to draw in the audience, once there they could easily browse hundreds of products in full high definition. When the visitors have finished exploring, the program automatically reverts to the opening video.

Exhibition staff found the screens to be very helpful too; enabling hundreds of product images to be accessed in few touches; explaining complex product categories became much easier and faster; giving staff a professional edge and not wasting delegates precious time.


The visual design of the touch screens complemented the impressive two-storey stand, with four units sited around the exhibition stand. Looping versions of the video opening screen were mirrored on a large video wall, giving the stand great impact!

Touch screen PDF viewer for exhibition interactive displays

You don’t have to clutter up your beautifully designed exhibition stand with expensively printed leaflets. Our latest project was to design a touch screen exhibition display that allowed the public to view a wide range of company literature as PDF’s on HP Touch Smart computers.


Once viewed the users could choose to have these instantly emailed to themselves — as the computers were linked to the local Wi-fi network. This was a great way to reach out to potential new customers in a quick and efficient professional manner, plus it created a great resource for future marketing activity.


Exhibition touch screen questionnaire gathers visitors’ feedback

Tablets and smartphones are driving a revival in the use of touch screens in exhibition and visitor interpretation displays. Our latest project was for a medical exhibition in Liverpool; our touch screen program helped gather user feedback by a quick and ‘simple to use’ questionnaire, running on two HP Touchsmart computers. When users completed the questions, the results were then saved automatically to an Excel spreadsheet for analysis after the show.

TurnRound developed the bespoke self-contained software using Adobe’s trusted Director 12, which is particularly well suited to this type of touch screen multimedia development and programming.
