Urban Expositions produces and manages a portfolio of 35 events covering six sectors. Based in Kennesaw, GA, the company also has offices in Shelton, CT and Boca Raton, FL, as well as many remote employees based in areas that are rich with customers.
Urban was launched by Partners Doug Miller, President and CEO and Tim vonGal, COO, in 1995 with the Philadelphia Gift Show and focused on the gift, home décor, and souvenir business. After a number of strategic acquisitions and startups, the company quickly became one of the largest and most successful regional gift and national souvenir trade show organizers in the United States.
Urban Expositions is well known for its very hands-on approach with customers. It is not uncommon to see the owners of the company walking around during show set up to talk to the customers and offer a hand. Doug & Tim have been known to help mop floors, carry heavy objects and always treat employees and customers in the most respectful manner. It’s fair to say that new business continues to come their way because people just want to work with them. Urban has a high standard for the kinds of people that work at the company and expects and breeds very sincere and service oriented employees.
