Testimonials

"Working with C-1 Trade Show Services is a breath of fresh air compared to working with so many General Service Contractors. They truly live up to their motto of 'the client comes first' and consistently provide excellent service - no matter how last minute requests may be! I highly recommend C-1 to any organization in need of an experienced decorator with great staff."
Jill Mendoza, CMP
"C-1 Trade Show Services is the most refreshing General Show Contractor to work with in the industry. From small meetings to large tradeshows C-1 makes every show a priority. The service they provide me as an event planner has never been matched by another company. The service they provide my exhibitors is also unique and personalized; tradeshows can be so expensive for small companies to exhibit at, but C-1 makes sure that pricing and services they provide enable all sizes of companies to capitalize on the benefits of a tradeshow. Their level of service and creativity they bring to a tradeshow ensure a successful show from all parties involved."

Ed Potillo, Conference Manager
"Since we first starting using C-1 Trade Show Services over 5 years ago, it's been hard to look anywhere else. Their attention to our needs during the pre-planning of our annual conference as well as on-site is unmatched. They make us feel as if our conference is the only show they are working on the entire time. If you're looking for a decorating company who will put the client first, look no further than C-1. You won't be disappointed!"

They are willing to go the extra mile to make situations work for both our needs and our exhibitors needs. They are way more than just a vendor...they are more like an extension of our team."
Chris Schroll, CEM, Senior Sales Manager
"I have worked with C-1 Trade Show Services since 2013. What won them the business, is the fact that Jennifer listened to me and understood what my needs were and supplied an excellent proposal that did not break the budget. Since working with Jennifer I found her to be positive, proactive, and realistic. She tells the truth and I trust her with all aspects of our tradeshow. In fact we are going to sign a multi-year deal with C-1 Trade Show Services and I would whole heartedly recommend them. Jennifer and Mike are the best to work with."
Chris Brown, Director of Meetings and Sponsorship
"C-1 Trade Show Services is a family run business and you become part of that family.  Mike and Jen are professional, friendly and know the ins and outs of the tradeshow industry.  We are using them for our World’s Fair of Money and they handle the onsite logistics flawlessly in some of the more difficult cities to work within.  I would highly recommend their services for any size show!"
Rhonda Scurek, Director of Conventions
"As a small decorator, C-1 Trade Show Services is able to offer the same services as the large decorators but with the personalized service and attention that only a small company can provide.  We have partnered with C-1 Trade Show Services for over 10 years and our exhibitors have benefited from their personalized service.  They work 1 on 1 with each exhibitor to make sure their needs are met and the exhibitors is well informed of all options to provide the best service at the lowest possible price.  I would highly recommend C-1 Tradeshow Services for all your decorator and trade show needs."
Virginia Meier, Conferences/Events Director
"C-1 Trade Show Services was a joy to work with. Mike and Jen are knowledgeable and very detail oriented. They have a good relationship with the local unions, which makes a huge difference. They are always flexible to the last minute changes that inevitably happen. I can always count on quick responses to emails, to get me that crucial information. I’m looking forward to working with them in the future."
Sam Joseph, Exposition Manager
"Coming from an association management company, I have had the opportunity to work with C-1 on several clients over the past 8 years.  C-1 has been outstanding in their customer service, both to our show management and exhibiting companies.  They definitely get to know the exhibitors from year-to-year and we continuously hear positive comments about their services."
Terri Berkowitz, Manager, Professional Relations
We have worked with C-1 since their very beginning, and I can’t imagine what would ever make us want to work with anyone else. The C-1 crew makes our lives SO easy, in terms of staging our event. They help us ensure that we cover all the bases with beautiful, functional, and cost-effective solutions for all of our needs—sometimes even those we don’t know we have! And “easy to work with” is a gross understatement. We couldn’t be happier!
