ExpoDisplays Receives New RFP Certification from EDPA
7/10/2014
Frustrations from the traditional RFP process, led ExpoDisplays to take steps to gain RFP Certification from EDPA. Conventional RFP processes put countless hours of work on those seeking to purchase an exhibit. With the new certification, the time and work has been done for the customers by EDPA. The certification is only awarded to companies who meet the most stringent standards for business practices in the industry.

ExpoDisplays is one of the first exhibit houses to receive this certification and currently the only one in the Southeast. The EDPA RFP Certification assures prospective clients that the member company adheres to industry standards and best practices relating to ethical business practices, industry experience and participation, fiscal responsibility and operational methodology. Jay Burkette, Vice President of ExpoDisplays said, “The certification program is a great move for the industry. It gives our clients a benchmarking tool when considering, selecting or working with an exhibit house partner.” Burkette, a 30-year industry veteran, currently serves as EDPA President.

The EDPA RFP Certification Program was launched in early 2014 in response to an industry survey of corporate trade show exhibitors that revealed a desire for more transparency and consistency during the RFP process.
