To prevent the spread of COVID-19, Colorado Governor Jared Polis has issued a shelter-in-place order for the state of Colorado, beginning this morning, Thursday, March 26th at 8 am through Saturday, April 11th. This order, in tandem with the previous Denver-specific shelter-in-place issued by Mayor Michael Hancock, requires that we halt all on-site operations, including manufacturing and fabrication.

In the interim, all of our team members, from account executives and customer service representatives to our accounting staff and designers, are fully equipped to work remotely and to continue to provide the level of professionalism and attentiveness you have come to expect from Condit.

As noted below, we are available during our normal business hours of 8 am to 5 pm MDT to discuss trade show booth projects, corporate installations, museum exhibits, and anything else you might need. Get started online quickly and easily, or send us a message, and we’ll be in touch shortly.

Once the respective orders for the city of Denver and the state of Colorado are lifted and our team is able to return to our facility, we intend to resume normal production services immediately.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all work together to protect our community.

 

Thank you.

To our clients and partners,

 

Amid the widespread social and economic uncertainty driven by the global health crisis, the event business faces unprecedented challenges. In the span of a couple weeks, we have transitioned from a vibrant industry to one shaken by financial turmoil. As events and conferences cancel or postpone, our employees and clients are among those most gravely impacted. Many exhibit houses, unfortunately, will not make it through what lately seems like an all-out assault on our business. But let me tell you what we are doing to fight back.

We have taken significant cost-cutting measures to safeguard the viability of the business in the long and short term, including limited staff, shorter working hours, and reductions in overhead (turns out that lowering that thermostat and turning off the lights when you leave the room really do help…thanks, Mom and Dad!).

As a result of these and other actions, we feel that we are in good shape to ride out the turbulence in the industry for as long as necessary. We are a company with solid financials and a great reputation, and we plan to keep it that way.

The safety of our employees and our visiting clients must be our top priority during this time, and as a matter of course, we are following all applicable federal, state, and local guidelines.  These seem to change almost daily, so we update policies accordingly as soon as they are announced.  Rigorous cleaning in the building and our work spaces, social distancing, and virtual meetings have become the new norm.  In addition, every employee is able to work remotely as and when needed. We like coming to the office and seeing our workmates (from a safe distance, of course), but we are ready to pivot at any time.

Our clients are the foundation of our business, and our success depends on you. You, too, have been at the mercy of Corona-driven cancellations and postponements, and believe me, we feel for you. Please know that we are here to help in any way we can. Maybe you’ve had your booth size changed or your budget’s been cut. We are ready with cost-saving solutions that might just let you get to that event that’s so important. And you can be sure you will continue to have the same level of great service that you have always enjoyed in the past. We’re all in this together, and we’re standing by to support you.

These are tough and uncertain times, and our company has been tested.  But we’ve faced down challenges before, and we’ll face these. What will save us, in the end, is our amazing people, and how we treat each other. So, my message to the folks in our organization (other than that we will all be working really hard) is this: Be kind. Be helpful. Be patient. And above all…..stay healthy!
