Are you frustrated with the time it takes to vet a new exhibit house?

Frustrations from the traditional RFP process, led ExpoDisplays to take steps to gain RFP Certification from EDPA.  Conventional RFP processes put countless hours of work on those seeking to purchase an exhibit.  With the new certification, the time and work has been done for the customers by EDPA.  The certification is only awarded to companies who meet the most stringent standards for business practices in the industry.

ExpoDisplays is one of the first exhibit houses to receive this certification and currently the only one in the Southeast.   The EDPA RFP Certification assures prospective clients that the member company adheres to industry standards and best practices relating to ethical business practices, industry experience and participation, fiscal responsibility and operational methodology.

The EDPA RFP Certification Program was launched in early 2014 in response to an industry survey of corporate trade show exhibitors that revealed a desire for more transparency and consistency during the RFP process.

iCompli, a division of BPA Worldwide, a not-for-profit international auditing organization headquartered in Shelton, Connecticut developed the certification protocols for the EDPA RFP Certification Program and performs the independent third party certifications.

 

Traditional RFPs take hours to complete during the onset of the project and the back end of the project, this new certification was developed to help eliminate that.

Now it’s time to streamline your RFP efforts. Let the suppliers do the work for you!
