With Creativation just around the corner, 3M is getting more and more excited to see how the Creativation rebranding of the event and new venue impacts the craft world! 3M is also thrilled to showcase a series of new involvements for 2017 around the show.

In the workshop, attendees will create a paper invitation, party décor, and a party favor. We will also have a sweets table display to help bring the party to life, and a photobooth that promotes sharing on social media! Attendees will receive a FREE box of 3M product valued at over $200!

We will be demoing our new Scotch™ “Create” line of products and Expressions Tapes, design techniques showcasing the new ScotchBlue™ PLATINUM Painter’s Tape, and displaying finished projects with our outstanding Command® and Scotch ® Mounting Products.

Our booth will feature a make-and-take featuring a NEW product to our Advanced Tape Glider product line.
For the first time, Creativation will have a splatter room where creative industry professionals will experience the art of throwing paint on canvas, inspired by abstract painter Jackson Pollock. Attendees will learn new techniques and achieve awesome designs by using 3M’s ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tapes to create patterns on the canvas prior to splatter painting. In addition, those who visit the booth with come home with a piece of artwork that is truly their own creation. Attendees will dress in 3M’s Paint Coveralls and Goggles to protect their clothes from the paint. Finally, Scotchblue™ will have a giant logo that attendees will also splatter paint. At the end of the event, we will debut the final project featuring everyone’s paint contribution!
In addition, following the trend of the Post-it ® Note Wars, 3M will make a giant Post-it® Note mural of the new Creativation brand for attendees to see as they check-in at the main registration area.
Our goal at this year’s Creativation Show is to showcase a much broader array of 3M products that Maker’s love and share new ideas for their creations! 3M is excited to connect with both new users and our most loyal customer so be sure to come see us at Booth #1123.
