GMi Companies, the parent company of Ghent, Waddell, and VividBoard is extremely excited to announce the opening of our showroom in theMart at NeoCon 2018 in Chicago. The newly formed showroom is located on the tenth floor in space 1060.

“We been a part of NeoCon for over twenty years. We couldn’t be more exicted to open our showroom during the 50th anniversary year,” said CEO Mark Leasure. “We’ve always had great conversations about our innovative communications solutions, and we know this year will be no different. We want the community to think differently about ancillary products like glassboards and whiteboards.”

And think differently is what we hope you will do.

The doors will open on Monday, June 11th and will feature products from all brands of GMi Companies: Ghent, Waddell and VividBoard.

The flagship brand of GMI, Ghent, will showcase a variety of glassboards, whiteboards, mobile whiteboards and bulletin boards intended to help you communicate, collaborate, and learn together. Our award winning communication boards will be on display for you to interact with.

Not to be outdone, Waddell is changing the face of display furniture by showcasing the styles and designs that are being requested for spaces today. Our latest offering, Pallet, combines collaboration tools like whiteboards with space division functionality.

VividBoard will be showcasing patient care boards for use in all areas of hospitals and other healthcare organizations. See how a custom designed graphic dry erase board improves patient communication, satisfaction and engagement.
