Hamilton Exhibits achieved the EDPA RFP Certification awarded to companies who meet the industry association’s stringent standards for business practices.
The EDPA RFP Certification assures prospective clients that the member company adheres to industry standards and best practices relating to ethical business practices, industry experience and participation, fiscal responsibility and operational methodology. Certification is granted by iCompli, an independent third party audit firm who reviews the member company’s application and verifies compliance with standards and practices.
The EDPA RFP Certification program was launched in early 2014 in response to an industry survey of corporate trade show exhibitors that revealed a desire for more transparency and consistency during the RFP process.
“We congratulate Hamilton Exhibits on this achievement and hope that this will encourage others in the exhibit design and production industry to pursue certification,” said Jeff Provost, executive director, EDPA.
iCompli, a division of BPA Worldwide, a not-for-profit international auditing organization headquartered in Shelton, Conn., developed the certification protocols for the EDPA RFP Certification Program and performed the independent third party certification of Hamilton Exhibit’s compliance with the venue standard.
