National Science Teachers Association Annual Meeting

Client: National Science Teachers Association
Number of Exhibitors: 350
Square Footage: 90,000 nsf
Attendance: 10,000

After years of working with the same general services contractor, Rick Smith, National Science Teachers Association’s (NSTA) Managing Director, Advertising, Exhibits and Workshops, decided it was time to take the association’s annual meeting to the next level. Rick began searching for a partner with a track record of high-quality design, national capabilities and a willingness to put a long-term service team in place.

Following a highly competitive procurement process, Hargrove was selected as the NSTA’s general services contractor for their annual and three regional meetings. Hargrove quickly moved into action, and in less than nine months, the team brought the “wow factor” to the annual show and demonstrated its unique service approach to show management, exhibitors and attendees.

 “Selecting Hargrove was without a doubt a forward leap to a next generation show presentation. We wanted excitement and motivation built into the shows’ perception and we got it! With the current climate in our industry we needed an impression that said we got what you need and we are not holding back. The difference and the WOW is that Hargrove did what they said they would and kept it under budget. And, they constantly improve on perfection. This has also helped us grow our booths going forward when others in our industry are shrinking.” Rick Smith, NSTA
