Abstract Displays, a Cincinnati-based tradeshow exhibit company, announced March 9 that it has been named a winner of the First Annual Tristate Success Awards by Cincy Magazine. The company will be featured in the April 2010 issue of Cincy and be honored at an awards dinner on April 21 at Xavier University’s Cintas Center.
The First Annual Tristate Success Awards was founded on the premise that the Tristate’s strength as a thriving business center is built on the growth and success of its businesses. The award honors the most successful and consistent public, private and emerging companies in the Tristate. Abstract Displays is a winner in the private company category.
“Receiving this award – especially in tough economic times – confirms that our business model of providing true service excellence is meaningful and impactful,” said Carla Eng, Abstract Displays president and CEO. “Every employee in our company is committed to this model because we consistently show that we care about them and their success, and that we are committed to the overall advancement and success of our fellow businesses and local communities. This motivates our staff to provide resourceful, innovative and proactive solutions that exceed our client’s expectations.”
The Tristate Success Awards dinner will be held on April 21 at Xavier University’s Cintas Center, beginning with networking at 5:30 p.m. and the awards presentation at 6:30 p.m. WLWT-TV, Channel 5, news anchor Courtis Fuller will emcee the event; Gregory Williams, president of the University of Cincinnati, is the keynote speaker.
Abstract Displays also was named first runner-up for the Woman-Owned Business of the Year by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. The award was presented to Carla Eng, Abstract Displays president and CEO, at a breakfast ceremony on Dec. 9 at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber Women Excel (WE) Celebrate Awards honors women and women-owned businesses for their achievement, innovation, social responsibility and mentoring. Abstract Displays was named first runner-up for Woman-Owned Business of the Year with less than 25 employees.
“The four core attributes of the WE Celebrate award winners – achievement, innovation, social responsibility and mentoring – are ones that are sharply aligned with our company’s own core values,” said Carla Eng, president of Abstract Displays. “We have achieved success and grown the business year after year by committing to true service excellence, offering fresh, new products that meet our client’s needs, taking part in and giving back to the community and creating growth and development opportunities for our staff. We are thrilled to be honored with this award.”
