The designation was one of four key industry awards E&E Exhibit Solutions received at EXHIBITOR 2009
Tempe-based trade show display company E&E Exhibit Solutions was named Partner of the Year by Exponents, Inc., a leading trade show exhibit manufacturer, at EXHIBITOR 2009, the national educational conference for trade show and corporate event marketers held March 22-26 in Las Vegas.
The award comes on the heels of a very successful 2008 for E&E Exhibit Solutions. In addition to earning a spot on the Inc. 5,000 list of fastest-growing companies for the second consecutive year.
“E&E has been a top-performing and valued partner for many years,” said Rip Jones, vice president of sales for Exponents. “With their additional support in developing and launching a custom design program in 2008, E&E has become a big part of our success and a unanimous choice for our Partner of the Year Award.”
Designed to help clients trim expenses while maintaining important trade show appearances, the custom design program has been a hit amongst local and national clients – including LaPolla Industries, Inc., a Texas-based manufacturer of spray polyurethane foams and acrylic coatings with offices in Tempe, which used a custom display exhibit featuring Exponents’ LUMITURE and LUMINENTS lines for January’s International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.
LaPolla came to E&E looking for a new exhibit for its upcoming IBS show, but was hesitant about making a large capital investment during a tough economic climate – especially one they would need to live with for as long as five years. To help solve this problem, E&E presented LaPolla with a custom display, as well as a three-show package at a substantial discount. In addition, E&E helped LaPolla repurpose some existing graphic elements, which further lowered operating costs. Finally, E&E offered LaPolla the option to apply a portion of the costs toward another new exhibit build, if LaPolla decided it wanted to purchase another exhibit after the show.
Stephanie Gssime, marketing director for LaPolla Industries, agreed. “Working with E&E Exhibit Solutions allowed us to keep this important industry event on our 2009 schedule without committing to a new exhibit build up front. Thanks to their flexibility and willingness to propose lower-cost options, we secured a number of new leads and generated significant interest during IBS.”
In addition to Partner of the Year, E&E Exhibit Solutions also received two sales awards from Exponents during EXHIBITOR 2009, including first place in overall sales in a mid-sized market for 2008 – the third consecutive year E&E has received this designation. The company also took home a third-place award for custom modular exhibit design from manufacturer Nomadic Display during the conference.
