The Trade Show Industry Standard:

Why Southern Exhibition Services


Southern Exhibition Services has literally grown up with the trade show industry!

Modern trade shows as we know them really became part of the American business lexicon in the mid-1950s. Southern Exhibition Services was founded as Dixie Decorating Company in 1955. Since then, public and industry shows have become increasingly prevalent and sophisticated.

Today, Southern Exhibition Services lays the foundation for more than 350 shows—from small poster sessions to multi-day, multi-building events.

We set — and continue to raise — the standard for excellence in the trade show industry!


We all like to do business with people we know and trust. Most of the employees at Southern Exhibition Services are no "short timers", so you'll see the same friendly faces year after year. Not only are we experts in the exhibition industry, we know our clients' annual shows—inside and out.

Technology is a great thing—except when it's a barrier between people. At Southern Exhibition Services, we don't rely on automated systems to pass you around between voice mails. When you need assistance, you're just a phone call away from a live person. Southern Exhibition Services is large enough to support the southeast's largest events, but still small enough to be nimble and responsive to clients' needs.


From the very first step in the planning process until the last piece of equipment is removed, Southern Exhibition Services takes a personal, hands-on approach to your event. You may not require the full range of services we offer, however isn't it reassuring to know they are available and that you only have to pay for those services you do need.

Southern Exhibition Services also offers client discounts when you specify us as the preferred vendor for your exhibitors.
