Teamwork is an essential component of success. Our industry is certainly no exception to this idea; in fact, the only way we can go anywhere as a company is to go there together. As I think back on Exhibit Concepts’ time at EXHIBITORLIVE this year, that is the biggest takeaway: the incredible power of teamwork.
When the ECI team designs, fabricates or installs a museum exhibit or trade show space, dozens of employees are involved in the project. From start to finish, we’re all working together for a common goal: to help our clients succeed. However, a few times a year we have the unique opportunity to be our own client. EXHIBITORLIVE is just one of those occasions, where we design, fabricate, and install a trade show space for ourselves. EXHIBITORLIVE is a trade show for trade show professionals, which facilitates our ability to connect with industry professionals on the show floor and in the classroom.
It seems like an understatement to say this was a memorable show for Exhibit Concepts. Our EXHIBITORLIVE booth did what we do best: it told a compelling story. From its clean modern lines and pops of bright color and visually compelling video content, it quite literally stole the show. It was a true honor for our team to be named Best of Show: Large Booth.
The honors didn’t stop there, however. Exhibit Concepts also won the Portable Modular Award for Best Fabric Exhibit for RCS Sound Systems and was named to the premiere Top 40 Exhibit Producers list, recognizing excellence in exhibitry.
Attendees at EXHIBITORLIVE also had the opportunity to connect with ECI leadership in a classroom setting. The men and women who lead our employees have vast industry and professional experience, and each had the opportunity to share that knowledge with others. In all, five of our ECI leaders (myself included) led eight educational sessions.
Though we don’t attend EXHIBITORLIVE for the sole purpose of winning awards, it is a true honor to receive the recognition for our hard work. I’m so proud of our team for coming up with an incredible concept and continuing to work together to take our company to the next level.
