GraphiColor Exhibits Achieves EDPA RFP Certification
GraphiColor Exhibits is proudly one of six in the U.S. to achieve the EDPA RFP Certification awarded to companies who meet the industry association’s stringent standards for business practices.
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. Certification is granted by iCompli, an independent third party audit firm who reviews the member company’s application and verifies compliance with standards and practices.
Anita Mitzel, President, commented, “I am thrilled that GraphiColor was awarded this important certification. We know that companies go through a leap of faith when working with an exhibit company for the first time. Putting myself in my client’s shoes, I would certainly feel more comfortable hiring an exhibit company that was vetted by strict exhibit industry standards.”
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.
Jeff Provost, Executive Director of EDPA, added, “We congratulate GraphiColor Exhibits on this achievement and hope that this will encourage others in the exhibit design and production industry to pursue certification.”
iCompli, a division of BPA Worldwide, a not-for-profit international auditing organization headquartered in Shelton, Connecticut developed the certification protocols for the EDPA RFP Certification Program and performed the independent third party certification of GraphiColor Exhibits compliance with the venue standard.
