Tradetec Skyline, a leading provider of exhibit management programs and custom modular displays and graphics, reached a significant milestone in being listed among the recently announced 2008 Inc. 5000. The listing recognizes Tradetec as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America.
The Chicago area exhibit display company was in the top ten of specialized marketing firms making the list and ranked 3577 overall. The list ranks cumulative growth over a three year period for all private companies. Over the last three years, Tradetec has experienced over a 90% increase in sales—placing it among the top 1000th of one percent in the nation.
"It is a great honor for Tradetec Skyline to be recognized by the leading resource for entrepreneurs,” says CEO and Co-founder Ken Buckman. "Our success can be attributed to our innovative and professional approach in providing outsourced trade show services, online program management, and innovative modular displays and graphics. We are also blessed with our 48 passionate and talented employees"
Buckman added that the explosive growth of the exhibit and event management side of the business has been the largest contributor to its success. Clients have complete access to an online system that allows them to manager their exhibits and prepare for shows with a few simple clicks. Tradetec expects that clients will use the system to manage the logistics for over 2,000 tradeshows in 2008.
“Tradetec Skyline’s customers—whether large or small—really appreciate our dedicated exhibit management team, who help ensure that each project is completed accurately and in a timely manner,” says President and Co-founder Mike Driscoll. “Our Blue Ribbon Service Program offers our customers a more efficient way to manage and run their trade show program.”
The Inc. 5000 profile also notes an added benefit of Tradetec’s exhibit displays: “Skyline contributes to environmental sustainability in two ways: By providing lighter weight, modular trade show displays and exhibits that have smaller environmental impact than traditional custom exhibits, and by minimizing the impact on the environment from its manufacturing operations.”
