Gino Pellegrini Named EDPA Designer of the Year
12/18/2008
The Exhibit Designers and Producers Association (EDPA) has recognized Gino Pellegrini as Exhibit Designer of the Year for his innovative designs and his contribution to enhancing the professional standards of exhibit designers. The international association represents those involved in the design, manufacture, transport, installation and service of displays and exhibits across the world. Thousands of designers create exhibits each year, but only one is selected EDPA’s Exhibit Designer of the Year.

Pellegrini was named 2008 Exhibit Designer of the Year at EDPA’s annual conference and supplier showcase on December 4 in Miami. EDPA selected Pellegrini based on his passion for the exhibit industry, his creativity and his ability to mentor young designers.

Pellegrini’s path to creating stellar exhibits is an interesting story. His design career began in Chile, but not in exhibit design. He designed furniture for his family business and it was by persuasion from a friend that he designed an exhibit that ignited his career in this industry. He began his exhibit design company in 1994 in Santiago and moved Inter-Global Exhibitions’ headquarters to Denver, Colorado in 1996. His projects have taken him all over the world from Africa to the Middle East. His eye for clean, sophistication and cultural sensitivities and the unique on-site demands each convention center brings has instilled a confidence in his domestic and international clients that their brand will shine in its best possible light.

“Gino’s passion for design leads him to create pieces of art which also happen to be trade show exhibits,” said Tom Walje, business development, Inter-Global Exhibitions.

EDPA announced the award by sharing testimonials from his clients and peers. “Gino is a true designer at heart and his designs reflect this,” Victoria Sun, graphic designer, Inter-Global Exhibitions was quoted. “As a young designer, I greatly appreciate the talent and insight he brings to every design and have learned so very much working with him.”
