Exhibitor Media Group, the award-winning monthly magazine featuring best practices in trade show marketing, and Find It – Marketplace, the buyer’s guide to trade show products and services, recently announced the companies that qualified for the 2019 Find It – Top 40, which honors the industry's top exhibit producers with offices in the United States and/or Canada. More than 100 exhibit houses applied and were subjected to an exhaustive evaluation process including more than 50 individual criteria, all weighted to reflect how EXHIBITOR readers and Editorial Advisory Board members value them when vetting and selecting potential partners.
The myriad criteria considered were categorized into five primary areas:
Company and Capabilities
Honors and Awards
Thought Leadership and Industry Participation
Service and Reliability
Creativity and Key Differentiators
The evaluation process also included a survey of current clients and a review of entrants' past projects, selling points, and innovations, conducted by corporate exhibit managers. The 40 firms who earned the highest scores qualified for this year’s list. Among them are 35 companies that are also members of the Experiential Designers and Producers Association (EDPA): 2020 Exhibits, 3D Exhibits Inc., Access TCA Inc., Acer Exhibits and Events LLC, ADEX International, Blue Sky Exhibits, BlueHive Exhibits, CenterPoint Marketing, CEP (Chicago Exhibit Productions Inc.), Classic Exhibits Inc., Condit Exhibits LLC, Creatacor Inc., Czarnowski Display Service Inc., Deckel & Moneypenny, Derse Inc., Elevation 3D LLC, Exhibit Concepts Inc., Exhibitpro, Exhibitus Inc., Freeman, GES (Global Experience Specialists Inc.), Group Delphi Inc., Hamilton Exhibits LLC, Hill & Partners, Impact XM, Kubik Inc., MC2 (Creative Management Services LLC), Mirror Show Management, Pinnacle Exhibits Inc., ProExhibits, RES Exhibit Services LLC, Skyline Exhibits, The Taylor Group, The Trade Group, and Zig Zibit Inc.
“As EDPA is among the oldest and most well-known associations in our industry, it’s no surprise that 88 percent of this year’s Find It – Top 40 are among the organization’s members,” said Travis Stanton, editor of EXHIBITOR magazine. “In order to qualify, entrants need to prove that they have established themselves as thought leaders and active players in the exhibits and events industry, learning from and sharing information with their peers. That obviously includes associating themselves with organizations such as EDPA and participating in events like EDPA Access.”
