Gino Pellegrini Named EDPA Designer of the Year
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,
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.”
The Exhibit Designers and Producers Association (EDPA), founded in 1954,
is an internationally recognized national trade association with more than
400 corporate members from 18 countries that are engaged in the design,
manufacture, transport, installation and service of displays and exhibits
primarily for the exhibition and event industry. For more information, go to www.edpa.com.
