2018 Art of the Show

San Diego, CA—November 16, 2018mdg has garnered seven first-place awards, including a “Best in Show” for marketing and design excellence from the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE)’s Art of the Show competition. The design contest honors the most original, creative and trend-forward promotional materials for the exhibitions and events industry. Since 1994, mdg’s creative team has been consistently recognized for the work produced for association and for-profit organizers of events in all size categories.

According to mdg President Kimberly Hardcastle-Geddes, “Our Creative Services Director, Kacia Reilly, has been instrumental in attracting and developing design, copy and digital talent that have helped further elevated the quality of the work we produce and she deserves much of the credit for these awards.” Owner and Live Events Specialist Vincent Polito echoed those sentiments, adding, “We are also fortunate to work with amazing clients who trust us with their brands and allow us to create campaigns that not only win awards, but also deliver results.”

Winning entries will be featured at Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition in New Orleans on December 11-13. They will be displayed at the Art of the Show Competition Winners Gallery on-site, and receive special mention at the Awards Ceremony during Thursday’s luncheon.
