Larry and Rick are still partners today, combining over 40 years of exhibit industry experience with fun, fearless, fully dedicated leadership. Their business philosophy is happy clients are repeat clients, and repeat clients are the benchmark in gauging our success.

We know show business. We eat, sleep and drink it, and have done so for over 30 years! We wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re serious about what we do, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously because, hey—it’s your show!

We’re also proud of the solid partnerships we’ve formed with some of the best general contractors, union folks & show personnel in the industry. They’re critical in helping us get your job done exceptionally well, every single time.

Our clients come in all shapes and sizes, from international organizations to local mom & pops. We partner with national giants like Masonite, The Middleby Corporation, Turtle Wax, Arc International, and Wacker Chemical Corporation to name just a few. The one thing they all have in common? They love our people, our craftsmanship & our personal service.

Because we’re not the biggest guys on the block we give you the professional, attentive service you need without the big box price tag. You won’t find anyone who will work harder, smarter and more affordably to make your next trade show, expo or environment the best you’ve ever experienced!
