Our History

THE YEAR: 1978
THE PLACE: Dayton, Ohio

What if you showed up for work one day and found the doors chained closed and the company out of business?

For Ned Brown, the answer was simple: he started over.

It was in that moment, standing outside and realizing his client’s exhibits were locked inside, that he decided to follow a long held dream and founded Exhibit Concepts. Born of a strong personal investment in his client’s success, Ned built the company on the foundation of excellent customer service.

We understand that our clients’ exhibits, shows, facilities, and events are part of their marketing lifeblood, and we do whatever it takes to get the job done on time and accurately. ECI has grown since those early days, now with a 200,000 square foot facility in Dayton and a 40,000 square foot facility in Chicago to handle all of our customer’s needs.

Now owned by Ned’s daughter Kelli Glasser, we are proud of our certification from the Woman-owned Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). This makes us one of the largest nationally-certified companies in our industry, and we are privileged to support several clients in the supplier diversity space.

Our vision for the future is to continue to grow and evolve.  But one thing will never change and is at the root of every decision – our commitment to customer service.

ECI was built upon a solid foundation of providing uncompromising service, we stand strong because we accept nothing less.  Today, Exhibit Concepts is a growing organization because of our principles and client partnerships. We view each new client as an opportunity to earn a long-term relationship, as we have with the organizations on this partial list.
