mdg has garnered seven first-place awards 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 design 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, “The ability to attract design, copy and digital talent from both coasts—and now Chicago—has enhanced our already-stellar creative team and further elevated the work we produce.” Owner and live events specialist Vinnie Polito echoed these sentiments, adding, “Plus, we are so fortunate to work with clients who trust us with their brands and give us the push to be more innovative and creative with their campaigns.”

Winning entries will be featured at Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition 2017 in San Antonio, Texas, on November 28-30. 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.
