Reveal Inc., a St. Louis-based tradeshow and event marketing firm, received the EDPA RFP Certification for meeting the industry association’s stringent standards for business practices in the exhibit industry.
The EDPA RFP Certification, created and sponsored by the Exhibit Designers & Producers Association, assures prospective clients that the certified 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 that reviews each member company’s application and verifies compliance with standards and practices.
“Reveal is proud to be one of the first companies in the industry to be certified,” said Jim Obermeyer, partner, Reveal. “In an industry where the RFP process can be vastly different from one project to the next and one company to the next, creating this certification is a big step in the right direction to making this process more standardized.”
The EDPA RFP Certification program was launched in early 2014 in response to an industry survey of corporate tradeshow exhibitors who revealed a desire for more transparency and consistency during the RFP process.
iCompli, a division of BPAWorldwide, a not-for-profit international auditing organization, developed the certification protocols for the EDPA RFP Certification Program and performed the independent third-party certification of Reveal in compliance with the standard.
Reveal is a company established to provide event marketing products and services for tradeshow, event, museum, corporate lobby and permanent installation clients locally, nationally and internationally.
