Earlier this year, Exhibitor magazine (the award-winning monthly magazine featuring best practices in trade show marketing) and Find It – Marketplace (the buyer’s guide to trade show products and services) announced the list of companies that qualified for the 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 evaluation process also included a survey of applicants’ current clients, as well as a review of entrants’ past projects, selling points, and key differentiators, which was conducted by corporate exhibit managers.
Today, EXHIBITOR launched its Find It – Top 40 online portal, where exhibit and event professionals can explore each of this year’s top-rated companies. The portal, housed within the Find It – Marketplace website, enables face-to-face marketers to quickly and easily research potential new exhibit partners.
“This online portal helps to ease the request for information (RFI) and request for proposal (RFP) process by putting information about the industry’s most qualified exhibit producers at prospective clients’ fingertips, allowing them to vet firms and cull their lists of possible partners to a reasonable number before engaging in the RFP process,” said Travis Stanton, editor of EXHIBITOR magazine. “Simply by virtue of making the Find It – Top 40, these companies have proven their ability to deliver outstanding exhibits, exceptional customer service, and remarkable capabilities, so this online portal is the perfect starting point for any exhibit or event manager considering a new build in the coming year.”
