About EPP - A Baltimore, Maryland/Washington, DC-Metro Trade Show Management Company

Exhibit Promotions Plus, Inc. (EPP), a women owned, GSA approved trade show managers, was founded in 1969 and quickly became known for delivery of priority attention to detail when serving the needs of Non-profit Membership & Trade Associations / Government / Industry clientele. Much has changed in the Meetings / Exhibition Service industry. Our core values are unaffected and have guided EPP from its inception -- great trade show service to our clients, professionalism & ethics, leadership & quality, plus a commitment to action.

These core values have propelled EPP to being a leader in the market we serve. Strategies & services have changed to meet the demands of an evolving marketplace, but our values remain intact. They will sustain us as we move forward, providing a foundation for the future and an inspiration to exceed our client's goals.

The longevity and sustained success in our chosen profession shall continue to be based upon a time-honored formula:

PROVIDING QUALITY EXPO SERVICES WITH A PERSONLIZED TOUCH!

OUR TEAM IS YOUR EXTENDED STAFF…

The EPP internal full time staff is “inter-changeable” whereby each individual becomes familiar with the exhibition marketing profile of a client association. Your extended staff is accessible to discuss / promote exhibit, sponsorship & advertising sales coupled with an ability to address a myriad of conference related details.

EPP representatives are routinely complimented for being cordial, personable, patient, wholly knowledgeable, and immediately responsive to virtually any question posed by a client's staff person, association member, exhibitor, sponsor, conference registrant, or third party vendor. EPP does not employ voice mail during standard business hours.

The professional background of EPP's Founder/President, as a licensed attorney, has insured contractual protection for clients when EPP is assigned the task of reviewing and/or conducting expo hotel negotiation. Accounting tasks are addressed by our CFO who has acquired over 23 years of experience.

EPP possesses a near instant capability for expanding staffing resources among long term business partners on a per event or part time assignment basis. Our controlling overhead expenses based upon limiting the size of internal full time staff is shared with clients in the form of a competitive commission based compensation formula for services to be rendered.

EPP =     EXPERIENCE.     COST-EFFECTIVE.     EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS.     EVERY TIME.

I have worked with EPP for over a dozen years and have first hand knowledge of EPP”s capacity to manage a successful trade show. EPP understands all business aspects of exhibit management and know how to effectuate outcomes that benefit a client. They are pragmatic in approach, keep the bigger picture in mind and know how to market effectively. Their shared guidance, candor and experience has spared AGA thousands of dollars from potentially mis-guided and mis-informed executive decisions. Exhibit management is in trustworthy, credible hands at EPP.
