EcoFlex Survives Memphis Flood

On May 1st and 2nd, flooding in Memphis, Tennessee devastated the Gaylord Opryland Resort. MC2's client Cisco, using our Ecoflex Exhibit System, was attending AFCEA DISA Customer Partnership Conference at the Opryland Convention Center.

From the photos, it looked like there was over 8 feet of water in the hall. The images of the flooding were so shocking that MC2 wrote the properties off as gone forever.

But when the floodwaters began to recede, we could see that the flooding destroyed just about everything in the hall, except our Ecoflex components.  The panels were still standing and the graphic infills were still perfectly velcro'd in place.  The exhibit looked like it just needed a good cleaning to be back in service again.

EcoFlex is 100% recyclable and now we know it's reclaimable too.
