Hargrove Inc., the creator of world-class experiential environments, was named to Event Marketer’s Fab 50, a list that signifies the top 50 exhibit and event fabricators serving the U.S.
Judged on clients and case studies, along with raw numbers on capabilities, capacities and competencies, Hargrove is proud to have once again earned a spot on this list.
“We are grateful to be recognized by Event Marketer’s Fab 50,” said Tim McGill, CEO, Hargrove. “While our fabrication is getting the recognition, it is impossible to build these wonderful exhibits without first having outstanding creative plans and designs. To that end, we continue to make significant investments in both our design and production capabilities. Our creative team has developed phenomenal environments, which are gaining fans around the world, and their work is in high demand. The Fab 50 recognizes Hargrove for being the qualified and distinguished partner for which our clients know and appreciate us.”
Hargrove is proud of its approach to creating engaging experiential environments for use in tradeshows and events. The company boasts a creative services department, which is deeply involved in the entire process, often from the opening conversation with the client.
“To be a top fabricator, you first need to have creative strength and the ability to understand and translate the client’s story into a setting which connects with their audience. We sit down with a prospect and really listen to what they want to say,” said David Solsbery, vice president of creative services, Hargrove. “We then create the design and ambiance, which evokes that story and conveys it to the client’s target in the most engaging way possible. It’s not just building the stage, but creating the environment, and often the activity, in which the message will be best received.”
Once the design is in place, the Hargrove team begins the process of turning the concept into reality. And the company is more than prepared for the job with one of the industry’s largest fabrication shops on the east coast, including a highly sophisticated graphics and signage department. Hargrove has made significant investments in its people, equipment and facilities ensuring the outstanding superior results for their clients’ needs, as the Event Marketer Fab 50 recognition attests.
“We excel in the tradeshows, exhibits and events industries by focusing on telling a story— not just building an exhibit, but designing and creating customized experiences for our clients,” said Dan Cole, senior vice president, sales for tradeshows and exhibits, Hargrove. “Outstanding fabrication is the result of first-class creative design. The team we have here is outstanding, and our capabilities are some of the best in the country—making us a truly one-stop-shop for our clients.”
Some of Hargrove’s most notable exhibit clients from 2014 include Destination DC, PSI CRO, Iron Mountain, Trump Hotels and the United Arab Emirates Presidential Guard. Hargrove also fabricated outstanding event experiential environments for Anheuser- Busch, Red Bull, Ray-Ban and Nike.
