Standing out of the crowd, the visitors were impressed and captivated; all that we could achieve with the iGlobe!
ICOM from Alling has devised a presentation form with the iGlobe, which gave us an outstanding appearance. With media support, we were able to bring our products and services closer, which are in need of explanation, to the fair’s visitors.
MOTIVA DV-Support GmbH is an Autodesk Gold Partner who also supports its customers with services.
We would like to thank ICOM for the iGlobe and wish them many other interesting projects and customers.

For me, one of the special aspects of the iGlobe is the fact that it is technically and conceptually with the times. It can be equipped with the most modern equipment so as to more effectively offer the visitors a truly interactive experience.
The use of stainless steel and 3D formed perspex means that it can be used again and again, something which is also in line with the aim of expo and event architecture to become more sustainable. All materials used can be reused in some form. We created the iGlobe using high quality materials so that it would be able to withstand the test of time, meaning that it could be adeptly reused without any difficulties, not only an ecological bonus, but also a financial one.
I am also impressed by the the iGlobe’s versatility – be it events, expos or conventions, or a company foyer – as well as that it is not restricted to one type of company. There is the potential for so many different types of uses and places for the iGlobe to grow.
The iGlobe will not only draw attention, but will also serve as a magnet drawing in visitors. Of this I am certain.

The following are some of challenges faced when constructing a globe:
How do I use the natural angular slant of our planet to create an inviting entrance to the globe’s “Ballroom“? What material do we use to create the continents?
We decided on a skeleton made of horizontal and vertical elements which could be covered with a “Skin“. The horizontal elements are ring beams: Floor-, equator- and head ring.
This holds 12 meridians, the vertical elements, enabling us to break the 18m diameter construction down into more practical parts.
The meridians are made of stainless steel. A strong, honest, no nonsense material which can survive without the need for any kind of protective cover and can easily handle static weight.
The 12 head meridians are the same size. 10 Foot meridians at varying heights give the globe its slant. The head and foot meridians are held together by the equatorial wheel, which they are slotted into, and are attached with screws. This gives the skeleton a seamless look. The equatorial ladders, all of which are the same size, can be covered with mouldable material from both sides. The skeleton is built in such a way that there is enough depth for cables to be laid, as well as the attaching of monitors or led panels without space being sacrificed. For the “skin“ that makes up the continents, the choice was made to use thermally mouldable synthetic materials. Another argument in favour of this material was that the glossy surface and edges would not require any further work.
To finish off, a few technical details about the iGlobe:
YOUR INDIVIDUAL iGLOBE
By using the example below we will give you an idea of the iGlobe rental costs
1. Rental of the iGlobe for 1-10 days
– Metal construction and skeleton made of polished steel.
– Continents made from perspex formed to the globe.
2. Individual requirements
– Media equipment consisting of 4 x 50“ monitors, inside or outside, as required.
– Equator with 4 company logos.
3. Transport, Montage and Demontage
– complete, in the Munich area
The versatility of the iGlobe in terms of individualization, such as media and visual content, location and rental duration mean that this price may vary. This is something, however, that we are more than happy to discuss and plan with you, so as to make your iGlobe experience one to remember.
