Trex – All Decked Out

Trex Company, Inc. is a major manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railings and other outdoor items made from recycled materials. For the International Builders Show earlier this year, Trex was looking to create an experience in their booth with blended areas to represent all of their various products. Our goal was to elevate the experience of their products by simplifying the way the products were displayed.

I think that we more than accomplished both our goals as well as the goals  that the Trex management team had set. This was an exhibit like no other for 

us and it was a huge success in the end. I believe the statements made by Mel  Karlson | Senior Marketing Manager, are telling of just how much they enjoyed working with us on this project.

“When it comes to fit and finish of  construction in the TREX exhibit, I’m pretty discerning.  With our previous exhibit partner it became an unfortunate tradition to visit during the build-phase with a single roll of blue masking tape hoping I didn’t need two. The guys had the skills and experience but, for whatever reasons, had lost their pride of workmanship. Well, no tape needed with Expo Displays. What a joy!”


“I just wanted to say a big Thank You to the team who obviously has MAD SKILLS but also truly cares and takes pride in their workmanship.  Congratulations on a job well done.”

Mel Karlson | Senior Marketing Manager


Looking Ahead to 2021

Davidson, formerly Davidson Technologies, announced a name change along with an updated logo in July of this year. The company’s headquarters is in Huntsville, Alabama making this business venture with ExpoDisplays an easy one. We have an office in Huntsville that allowed us to be a local solution provider for Davidson when they decided that along with a new name and logo, they  would need a new trade show exhibit as well.

Davidson Technologies, Inc.Davidson is a premier engineering company providing solutions to complex engineering and technical challenges though comprehensive integrated solutions for our Nation’s security.  Davidson provides proven, innovative expertise and leadership in Software, Systems and Cyber-security Engineering for numerous customers across the country including Alabama, Colorado, Alaska, California, Florida, Indiana and Michigan.

Davidson is currently planning to expand their presence in the western U.S. with opportunities in the Salt Lake City area.  

Davidson, along with several other ExpoDisplays clients, exhibits at the Space and Missile Defense Symposium which is held annually in Huntsville, AL. They wanted to be able to take a brand new exhibit to the 2020 show. An exhibit that would boldly display their new name and logo for all to see. We began work on a new 20’x20’ MultiQuad® exhibit in December of 2019. However, as Covid would have it, SMD would decide to go virtual in early 2020. As devastating as this news was to everyone planning to exhibit at SMD, Davidson made the decision to continue with their new exhibit even though they would not be needing it for the show.

As with everything in 2020, this exhibit took a little while to get to completion. However, the team at Davidson was super excited to see it finished and on display in our Birmingham location in September. They visited and completed a walk through inspection to give it the final thumbs up. They are very much looking forward to the day when they can see it on display on the trade show floor.

We are pleased to have Davidson as a client and we look forward to working with them on many new projects in the future. It’s clients like Davidson that push through the adversity and keep the goal in sight. We appreciate this opportunity to design and build their new exhibit and can’t wait to see it back at SMD next year.


PIMCO is one of the world’s largest investment managers and has worked for over 50 years to help millions of investors pursue their objectives and reach their financial goals. They are currently managing over $1.78 TRILLION in assets. PIMCO became an ExpoDisplays client in 2016 and has been great to work with on many different projects. Michael Norrell is our account representative for PIMCO and he has continued to sell and resell them on our capabilities and show services. 

PIMCO wanted to partner with a company who could customize a trade show exhibit that would be as impressive as the company itself. ExpoDisplays answered that call! Currently PIMCO has 3 custom trade show exhibits that were designed and built right here at ExpoDisplays. Today we are currently storing and managing these three exhibits as well.

We have chosen to spotlight PIMCO and their great acts of kindness and charity as they are a great example of a successful company who gives back to the community.

The PIMCO Foundation has issued 18 new grants to charity partners focused on hunger and humanitarian relief for those affected by COVID-19. 

These funds will support PIMCO’s partners around the world, as many experience greater demand from individuals and communities seeking food and support. The PIMCO Foundation will also support the efforts of local community collaboratives in Orange County, Austin and New York City which are coordinating responses in their local regions.  PIMCO also donated funds from its Disaster Relief Program in January to support communities in China.  “It is more important than ever for us to continue to support our partners who are tirelessly serving the most vulnerable in our local communities during this unprecedented time of need,” said Emmanuel Roman, Chief Executive Officer of PIMCO and President of the PIMCO Foundation. PIMCO’s largest multi-year partner, The Global Foodbanking Network, is also among those set to receive funding. 

In addition to these donations, PIMCO offers an employee match program which supports employees’ personal philanthropy.  PIMCO is also activating virtual and pro bono volunteer opportunities for employees seeking to donate their time and expertise directly to partner organizations serving local communities. We at ExpoDisplays take great pride in having a relationship with a company as charitable as PIMCO. We look forward to continuing to cultivate and grow our projects with them for many years to come.
