Cert Packet - Labels for Certified Companies


[CHICAGO – September, 12, 2016] CEP – Chicago Exhibit Productions, Inc. is pleased to have achieved 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.

"CEP has always followed meticulous best practices throughout the RFP process, which is a fundamental step in laying the groundwork for a dedicated relationship with our clients," stated Michael Ebert, President. "Clients who choose us can be assured that they are partnering with an organization that meets the highest standards for integrity, capability and business practices in the industry."

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 CEP 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 CEP's compliance with the venue standard.

The top fabricators serving the event and trade show industry

fab-50-2016-logoThey call it a “good problem” to have—when an industry is on such an upswing that there are more partners to choose from than ever before.

But for your trade show team, and probably your procurement department that sources your trade show RFPs, that “good” problem can translate into a major headache with too many choices and not enough time or information to help you make the right decisions.

In an effort to make your exhibit partner selection process less painful and more informed, we serve up our fourth Fab 50, the only editorial listing of top exhibit builders in North America. This time, you’ll recognize seasoned veterans along with relative newcomers. Once again we’ve provided quick information bites about each company, its culture and capabilities. Whether you’re in the market for a trade show exhibit, museum display, outdoor installation or just want to get your creative juices flowin’, the following list provides the names you’ll need to make it happen.

Congratulations to this year’s Fab 50.
