mdg has garnered five First Place awards and four Honorable Mentions for marketing and design excellence from the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE)’s Art of the Show competition. The design contest honors the most original, creative and trend-forward promotional materials for the exhibitions and events industry. Since 1994, mdg’s design team has been consistently recognized for the work produced for association and for-profit organizers of events in all size categories.

According to mdg owner and president, Kimberly Hardcastle-Geddes, “We are so fortunate to work with clients who trust us with their brands and have challenged us to take their campaigns to the next level. Our collaborative team of designers, copywriters and digital marketers are creating the kind of attention-grabbing, design-forward, emotionally-appealing work that was once reserved for consumer marketing.” Owner and live events specialist Vinnie Polito echoed those sentiments, adding, “I take great pride in these awards and even greater pride in the results that the work has helped our clients achieve.”

Winning entries will be featured in an interactive display at Expo! Expo! held in Anaheim December 6-8, 2016.
