DisplayWorks Reports Record Revenues in 2014, Anticipates Continued Expansion in 2015


Irvine, CA and Cincinnati, Ohio– March 24, 2015 – DisplayWorks, the 34-year-old premier exhibit company, reported record revenues in 2014 as a result of organic growth in client account and expanded service offerings.

“In our more than three decades of operations, we have never seen the revenues generated in the past year,” stated Mike Bartley, Division President – West Coast. “We kicked off 2014 with our biggest CES showing to date – working with more than 10 unique projects ranging from custom exhibits, private showrooms, elaborately transformed hotel meeting rooms, live and digital engagements, and high-profile customer events.  With our customer-centric business philosophy, DisplayWorks continues to evolve to meet our clients’ needs by providing the kinds of marketing resources that are no longer available in-house due to the leaner infrastructures of most clients.”

Todd Parnell, Division President – Midwest, echoed these thoughts in his assessment for 2015.  “Our role in client marketing plans is becoming even more important in the current year,” he confirmed.  “We operate as an extension of their marketing teams to meet demand and deliver results while minimizing the burden on their internal staffs. For 2015, we’re already reaping the benefits of significant investments in our account services, creative, strategic, event and digital teams. The capabilities and range of services we offer our clients has never been stronger.”

DisplayWorks’ advances in recent years have been supported financially by its owner, Praesidian Capital, an investment firm known for providing growth capital.  “We have worked closely with DisplayWorks since 2009 and continue to be amazed by the creativity, passion and craftsmanship they consistently deliver to clients across multiple industries,” stated Jason Drattell, Praesidian Founder. “The company has Praesidian’s full financial backing as we continue to grow organically and seek to acquire key strategic assets that will enhance our customers’ experience.”

Delivery of DisplayWorks’ core competencies, which range from exhibit and meeting services to digital engagement and mobile campaigns, is critical to client support. The company’s seven facilities in the United States are now fully leveraged to maximize production, resulting in a seamless ability to deliver all robust and diverse services through a single lead account team.  Additional strategic, executive leadership and creative personnel now bring clients even more sophisticated and strategic marketing that translates into measurable program results.

“In addition to strengthening the front-end project teams, we’ve made further investments and improvements in our project management and logistics teams that keep client programs running smoothly year-round,” Bartley noted. “We’ve enhanced our online inventory and exhibit ordering tools, increased staffing in our show supervision departments, and expanded and centralized our show services department for faster and more comprehensive support for every client nationwide.”
