Exhibitus has announced its national expansion with the opening of a new facility in Phoenix, Arizona during the fourth quarter of 2023. This strategic move comes as businesses are revitalizing their relationships with markets post-pandemic.
As face-to-face experiential events have once again become a critical component of corporate marketing activities, Exhibitus has experienced significant increase in its customer base, while continually introducing new experiential engagement capabilities. The expansion of the company’s regional facilities is key to supporting this growth in services and presence across the U.S.
Recognizing that Las Vegas hosts nearly 24,000 meetings and conventions annually and was named the No. 1 trade show destination in North America for 26 consecutive years by the Trade Show News Network (TSNN), it was obvious that we need to be within a short drive to Vegas to minimize transportation cost and logistic challenges.
Turns out, Phoenix is the cost-effective answer for a hub servicing Las Vegas-bound clients and also growing the company’s presence west of the Mississippi. Details and demographics provided by the Economic and Development Department of Phoenix that support this exciting expansion include:
FIFTH LARGEST CITY IN U.S. – Phoenix has a population of more than 1.7 million within the City boundaries, and 4.9 million in the Greater Phoenix area. According to Forbes, Phoenix is No. 1 on its “Fastest Growing City” list for the last 5 years in a row.
ACCESS TO MAJOR EVENT LOCATIONS – Easy freeway access and drive times include:
- Las Vegas – less than 5 hours
- Los Angeles – less than 6 hours
- Salt Lake City – less than 10 hours
- Reno – less than 12 hours
- San Francisco – less than 12 hours
- Denver – less than 13 hours
- NOTE: From Atlanta, Denver would take approximately 21 hours!
DIVERSE WORKFORCE – Phoenix benefits from an experienced, diverse workforce and draws from nearly 2 million people in a 30-minute commute. The list of sizeable numbers of employees working in areas that Exhibitus requires includes:
- Transportation, storage and distribution managers
- Project management specialists
- Commercial and industrial designers
- Sales representatives
- Warehouse managers
WORKFORCE ASSISTANCE/JOB TRAINING FUNDS – The City of Phoenix provides an in-house team fully dedicated to workforce development and its own federal allocation of workforce funds.
QUALITY OF LIFE – Phoenix offers an outstanding quality of life that spans all lifestyles and ages, including numerous cultural events and festivals, a thriving music and arts community, world class museums and theater, an outdoor lifestyle that includes countless parks, hiking and biking trails, as well as unique restaurants with a local flair and shopping for every taste.
Brad Falberg, President of Exhibitus, added, “As experiential marketers, our mission is to elevate our clients’ brands through the best in audience-centric design, engagement, and execution at every event – all within a budget that benefits their corporate objectives. Having physical presence across the U.S. is an exciting next step for Exhibitus. With the addition of Phoenix, we will continue to evolve to meet the everchanging needs of our clients, especially regarding transportation and logistics.”
The Phoenix location, 13250 W Cactus Rd., Suite 1, Surprise, Arizona 85379, will open with sales, fabrication and warehousing services. Additional capabilities, including design and interactive engagement expertise, will be added in the coming months.
