MISSION:

Our goal is to streamline and ease the process of purchasing trade show displays for our clients.

Tradeshowdirect's first goal is to get you the products you need as quickly and as hassle-free as possible. In order to do that, we use a combination of product distribution and in-house production that creates a perfect window of flexibility for our clients. We keep a large stock of our most popular items, like Banner Stands and Pop-Up Displays, for a quick turnaround and an unbeatable value. Once your artwork is approved, we produce your display as fast as possible, and before shipping, your booth is set up, inspected and then photographed for quality assurance.

Our goal is to offer high quality products, and to offer products that are made in the USA as often as possible.

We are constantly researching, developing and testing new products in order to offer our customers the highest level of trade show products at fair and affordable prices. Every product we sell has gone through rigorous testing, not only for our clients' benefit, but also our own. We believe that the quality of a product should never be sacrificed in order to make a sale. We also make an effort to offer products manufactured in the United States as often as possible.

All of our trade show displays are guaranteed against manufacturing defects and flaws; we firmly believe in and stand behind our products. You can be sure that the product you receive will be the highest quality we can possibly produce. If you're not satisfied with your trade show display, simply contact our customer service representatives and we will do our best to make it right.

Our goal is to achieve the highest customer satisfaction and provide excellent customer service.

We take pride in getting our clients exactly what they need, when they need it. Our Exhibit Consultants know the ins and outs of the trade show industry, and can help you get the trade show display, banner stand, or accessory that's right for you. We want to create lasting relationships with our clients, building trust through honest communication and transparent pricing. For us, a job is not complete until we have our customer's complete satisfaction. For this reason, we choose to keep you involved in every step of the process. From the largest custom display to the smallest graphic, we won't just help you purchase, we'll keep you in the loop. Our sales staff and design team work directly with you, collecting ideas, creating mock-ups, and sending digital proofs to ensure that everything meets and exceeds your expectations.

HISTORY:

In the Beginning

Bell Creative, Inc. started as a freelance graphic design studio in 1993 in the upstairs bedroom of Ken Bell's townhouse in Springfield, VA. In 1994, realizing an unmet need, Ken purchased a professional grade laminator. Lacking the required space didn't deter Ken; he simply parked the laminator in the townhouse dining room, and began laminating customer supplied art.

After several years, Ken and his family moved to Falls Church, VA where the office grew into the entire basement of their small house. Before long, the 800 sq ft basement was too small and our first commercial office was opened in Springfield, VA.

Tradeshowdirect

In 1998 Bell Creative made the decision to become a full service exhibit company and began doing business as Tradeshowdirect. From the beginning, we had a website and online shopping, which was unheard of at the time.

Harrisonburg

In 1999, Ken and his family moved to Harrisonburg, VA. Once in Harrisonburg, Ken renovated a 6,000 sq ft storefront in the heart of downtown. It is at this location where Tradeshowdirect matured into its current identity.

As our business continued to succeed, we again needed more space. In the fall of 2007, we purchased a 30,000 sq ft building, and after about a year of intensive renovation, we moved into our current office. It has all the space we will need for years to come as we continue to grow, and will allow us to even better serve our clients.
