Showdown Displays Announces Integration of Creative Banner Displays


Brooklyn Center, Minnesota-based Showdown Displays, makers of banners, flags, and other event and display products, announces the formal integration of its sister company, Creative Banner Displays. Effective Jan. 1, 2019, both will go by the name Showdown Displays.

Showdown Displays and Creative Banner Displays have been operated by the same management team since 2012 and have been one in the same operationally—same products, pricing and service—although servicing slightly different reseller audiences.

“This merger signifies a joining of like-minded brands that have been operating as one behind the scenes and unifies our brand communications to the channels we serve” says John Bruellman, president and CEO of Showdown Displays. “Unified as Showdown Displays, our reseller partners can be confident in our commitment to our trade-only, go-to-market strategy and they’re certain to experience an amplified investment in technology and innovation. In short, everyone wins.”

The new Showdown Displays will be larger in scale while retaining the qualities that has built it to be a leader in the portable display category, the company says, adding that the benefit of the larger scale to customers will be even more category education, marketing tools and wide-format print services to help grow their business.
