About The EXHIBITOR Top 40 Award
The EXHIBITOR Top 40 award honors the industry’s best exhibit producers in the United States and Canada. Small, medium, and large exhibit houses are selected based on their capabilities in producing custom exhibits, rental exhibits, portable and/or system-based exhibits, pop-up exhibits, etc. In addition to a review of past projects, financial profile, innovations, and advocacy, scoring is also influenced by direct client feedback.
How Exhibit Companies Are Judged
The overall rating system focuses on five key areas:
- Company and Capabilities
- Honors and Awards
- Thought Leadership and Industry Participation
- Service and Reliability
- Creativity and Key Differentiators
Top 40 is presented by EXHIBITOR Media Group, a leader in trade show and corporate event marketing education, and promoted by EXHIBITOR Magazine, the organization’s main publication. The Find It – Marketplace, which lists all Top 40 award winners, acts as a comprehensive guide to the industry’s best trade show products and services.
An Exhibit Industry Leader
Condit is honored to be included in EXHIBITOR‘s annual listing of the Top 40 Exhibit Producers for the third year in a row (2019, 2020, and 2021).
“Honoring the industry’s top exhibit producers, the Find It – Top 40 (produced by EXHIBITOR Magazine and Find It – Marketplace, the buyer’s guide to trade show products and services) recognizes the best exhibit houses based on a variety of criteria within five different categories.”
Based on customer survey data, Condit was awarded highest marks in the “Service & Reliability” section.
“The competition for a spot on the 2021 Find It – Top 40 list was extremely competitive, especially given the challenges exhibit houses faced over the course of the past year. That’s a testament to not only how well this industry is served — and the tenacity of these organizations — but also the significance of this accomplishment for the 40 companies that qualified,” said Travis Stanton, editor of EXHIBITOR magazine.

Live Award Event: COVID Adjustments
To accommodate a non-traditional events season as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Top 40 awards included new categories for virtual exhibits and unrealized, conceptual designs as well as an extension for eligible projects and historical performance data. Instead of a live event in Las Vegas, this year’s winners were announced during a virtual awards ceremony on April 8, hosted on EXHIBITOR’s Facebook page.
Brighter Times Ahead
Amid the widespread social and economic uncertainty driven by the global health crisis in the past year, the event business has faced unprecedented challenges. These have been tough and uncertain times, and our company and our industry have been tested. But there is still reason to celebrate. The Condit team congratulates the other Top 40 award winners and looks forward to the recovery of the events and exhibitions industry in 2021 and beyond.
