What are you going to do?
As an Exhibition Designer, you are responsible for creating one-of-a-kind trade show booths that stop visitors in their tracks. You present your concepts - which align with the goals of the exhibition or event - to either clients or colleagues. Depending on the project, you may work independently or with a team of designers.
To bring your ideas to life, you create full 3D renderings, including several views per project. You also carefully plan out 2D views with measurements on specific booth elements, like electrical layouts or internet connections. In addition, you design custom pieces, create spec drawings, and oversee the construction, if needed.
It is immensely satisfying to see people enjoying your work and getting value from it. The exhibition industry is an ever-evolving field where there's always something new to learn; meaning you'll never get bored. If you're creative and have strong design skills, then this job is perfect for utilizing those talents to create unforgettable experiences for our clients.

- group dental and vision insurance,
- a 401(k) plan with employer matching.
What do you bring?

Ideally, we're looking for someone who has been working in this field for at least 1-2 years and is familiar with trade show environments. Note: this is for an in-house designer only.
If you want this job, you better be good with VectorWorks. Also, if you have prior knowledge of other CAD or animation software, as well as Microsoft Office or Adobe Creative Suite, that's a major bonus.
