Our Deliverables Go Beyond Carpentry

Southern District trade-show specialists possess key professional skills to complement their technical talents. We understand how professional conduct, customer service, and personal appearance contribute to a successful project.

Partnering with industry leaders such as the Exhibition Services & Contractors Association (ESCA), the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau, we’ve developed a proprietary customer service-training program: Delivering Exceptional Customer Service.

The program focuses on customer engagement, creating a great experience, listening skills, appearance, and problem solving. Participants study and practice world-class customer service strategies such as exceeding customer expectations, creating a positive experience for every customer, and finding opportunities to accommodate customer needs in unique and unexpected ways.

Trade-show specialists stand-out on a jobsite because of the intense, ongoing theoretical and hands-on training each professional exhibits, every day. Technical proficiency and soft skill training combine to create a well-rounded professional who excels in everything from layout, installation and dismantling to customer service and troubleshooting.
