Hargrove’s work as an exhibit design firm goes as far back as our company’s inception in 1946. From our start in window displays for boutiques and creating iconic parade floats, to our current portfolio of custom tradeshow exhibits and bespoke experiential activations, we’ve partnered with brands, organizations, and museums to create visually inspiring and memorable experiences. With in-house strategy, creative, graphics, and fabrication, we provide total exhibit design services. Our rental booths, fully custom exhibits, and permanent exhibitions are supported by a team of experts ready to take you from idea to reality. 

Flexible, Sustainable Rental Booths

Our rental exhibits are designed to offer clients a wide variety of options that are sustainable, flexible, and customizable. Our portable modular hardwall and fabric booths feature high-impact custom graphics and can quickly scale as your exhibit needs evolve. We specialize in providing turnkey rental options that help take some of the guesswork out of a hectic expo season or ease the stress of exhibiting at international tradeshows. 

“Rental exhibits are a great, affordable option for exhibitors looking to elevate their tradeshow presence from pipe and drape to a space that’s professional and on brand. Most importantly, these turnkey solutions allow your onsite team to focus on their event goals and not worry about their booth setup.” – Kathleen O’Brien, Rental Exhibit Services Representative

Eye-Catching Custom Exhibits

Hargrove designs and produces custom tradeshow exhibits that are keenly focused on addressing your organization’s needs and objectives. We aim to develop partnerships and exhibits that grow alongside of you, evolving to support your goals, expand your community, and build on your successes. Because of our focus on collaborating during every step of the project, our design and fabrication teams work alongside your team as your project goes from conceptual idea to crowd captivating exhibit. 

“Our team members have a deep understanding and knowledge base of the exhibit industry, recognizing it is not a one-size-fits-all solution for our clients. Our unrivaled customer service and attention to detail for our clients’ exhibit programs sets us apart from our competitors. It is integral in the way we work with, design for, and develop solutions for our clients.” – Patty O’Daniel, Exhibit Sales & Customer Engagement Manager

Engaging Permanent Displays & Experiential Activations

Creative exhibit experiences like permanent displays, museum exhibitions, and experiential brand activations, create connections and drive impressive results. Bringing together innovative yet functional design, meticulous engineering, and expert fabrication skills, our team works with you to deliver experiences. We’ll work together to turn your marketing, branding, and sales objectives into memorable, engaging, and inspiring success stories. 

“Our approach to design trends drives the creation of custom exhibits that are rooted in a brand’s authentic story. Permanent exhibitions and brand activations are more than just structures, they’re experiential opportunities. They are user experiences with a unique story, and we make that story come to life.” – Constantine Karistinos, Director of Exhibits

At Hargrove, we believe that each company and each event are unique and deserving of innovative solutions, not a cookie cutter approach. Our team can help you find the perfect exhibit option to achieve your vision and goals.
