We Need Your Help with a Testimonial

October 22nd, 2013 7 COMMENTS

We need your help. And it will only take a few minutes.

Every year at EDPA ACCESS, the annual conference and showcase, there’s an award program. One of those awards is the EDDIE Award, the only one open to submissions from both EDPA members and non-members.


“The EDDIE Award is an award judged solely on the self-promotion of your company not on the promotion of a client.”

Here’s where you can help. We plan to submit Exhibit Design Search (EDS) for the award. We’ve written the submission but would like to enhance it with your testimonials. If you believe, as we do, that Exhibit Design Search has benefited your company and benefited Classic Exhibits, we would love to include your heartfelt testimonial. Nothing long . . . 3-4 sentences would be terrific.

Now, if you read the guidelines above, EDS may not at first glance seem to fit. After all, Classic Exhibits brands EDS for each distributor. You’re our client and it’s for your benefit. But let’s not kid ourselves. We brand it for our benefit as well, since we want your business to flow our direction. So, while it may not be “self-promotion” in the “See Me, See Me” sense, it’s still self-promotion.

If you are not shy, use the Comments section of the blog. If you are shy, send your testimonial to Mel White ( — October 31 deadline. We have to submit it by Nov. 4.

Thank you very much! We sincerely appreciate it.

–Mel White

    Design Search is the best visual tool I have ever found since I began my career in the trade show display industry (we won’t discuss how long that has been). Easy to access, easy to navigate. Has just about everything you can think of to show your clients how to equip their trade show space. It is an amazing collection of product and design. I don’t think any other display company has anything like it.

    Wow, where do I begin?! In the 20+ years I’ve been in this crazy, wonderful business, I would have to say that Classic’s Design Search is the best selling tool I have ever been given. I use it every single day and have sent countless links from it to my clients and prospects, and they are amazed at the amount of design options and detailed information right at their fingertips. I have been praised many times for providing such a useful tool to my clients, but it is all due to Classic’s innovation and hard work!

    I’m blushing for all of Classic. Big thanks Mike.

    We use the Classic Design Search on a daily basis when meeting with new and existing customers. New clients often do not realize the vast array of design choices available. Not only does Design Search give prospective buyer ideas on design but also provides guidance regarding budgets. Great tool for our clients as well as sales team. Thanks Classic!!!

    Mel, I know you are no stranger to my feeling about EDS and it’s value as a sales tool. A day doesn’t go by where we don’t find ourselves using this intuitive and user friendly aid. Whether it’s live on line with a client as we walk through the portfolio, or researching on our own after a discovery meeting with a client, the EDS has proven time and time again to be a huge benefit to all parties involved! Cheers…Chuck
