Services & CAPABILITIES
CREATIVE
At MEC, we believe that exhibits should provide an environment that allows our clients to engage, interact, and inform their attendees in a way that best fits their exhibit marketing strategy, while at the same time adhering to their branding guidelines.

Your goals are our priority. Our full service design department uses creativity and experience to find ways to bring your visions to life, while adhering to the show rules, restrictions, physics, and budgets.

We also specialize in post-video production, graphic creation, web development, and interactive touchscreen presentations.

MEC’s dedicated supervisors generally manage the “pull and prep” of your project in our shop whenever possible. This helps maintain their level of intimacy with your structure, knowing and understanding its abilities and limitations and keeping track of needed or finished repairs.
