CEP was founded in 1985 as Chicago Exhibit Productions, Inc. with a passion for servicing trade show customers with craftsmanship of the utmost quality. It was built on solid Midwestern ideals and a belief system that held high the concepts of relationships, accountability, value creation, and family. Fast-forward to today, and these principles still hold true for CEP. The company has experienced steady growth, an extraordinary rate of employee retention, an impressive client list in a diverse array of important industries, a nationwide presence and a global footprint.
From humble beginnings, CEP has grown its business strategically, even in tough economic times. Today, CEP has expanded beyond just trade show exhibits into face-to-face marketing environments and interiors, events, marketing and brand strategy, and ultimately offering customers Total Program Management.
