Orbus Exhibit & Display Group, North America’s leading wholesale supplier and manufacturer of display, exhibit, graphic and event solutions, is proud to announce that it has acquired Fabric Images, an industry pioneer renowned for design and expertise in the science of fabric architecture.
The merger combines Orbus Exhibit & Display Group’s world-class service, quality, print capability and extensive portfolio of signage, portable, modular, fabric structure and custom exhibit and display solutions with Fabric Images’ expertise in creating innovative, award-winning, custom fabric architectural solutions for exhibits, events, hospitality, retail and commercial interiors.
