Exhibitor Media Group, the award-winning monthly magazine featuring best practices in trade show marketing, and Find It – Marketplace, recently announced 2020 Exhibits as one of its 2019 Find It – Top 40, which honors the industry’s top exhibit producers.
More than 100 exhibit houses with offices in the United States and/or Canada 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.
“It is an honor to earn recognition as one of the industry’s leading exhibit producers,” said Bob Babine, president of 2020 Exhibits. “We stand in good company. And with nine offices nationwide and worldwide reach, our award-winning and passionate team brings the most powerful creative and brand building experiences to the marketplace on behalf of our rich roster of leading brands and businesses.”
“This program is intended to spotlight the best exhibit producers in the industry, while also providing a valuable resource for exhibit managers searching for new potential partners,” said Randy Acker, president and chief operating officer of Exhibitor Media Group. “The second-annual Find It – Top 40 represents the most exclusive list of U.S. and Canadian exhibit providers in the industry and serves as the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval when it comes to the companies behind many of the most successful trade show stands in the world.”
“The competition for a spot on 2019 Find It – Top 40 list was extremely competitive. After evaluating dozens of criteria and totaling the scores, less than one one-hundredth of a point separated 40th from 41st place — and nine companies were within a single point of making the cut,” said Travis Stanton, editor of EXHIBITOR magazine. “That’s a testament to not only how well this industry is served, but also the significance of this accomplishment for the 40 companies who qualified.”
