Our philosophy over almost five decades in the industry hasn’t changed – put together the very best team to exceed every client’s expectations of service, creativity and genuine partnership.
I love the opportunity of bringing new clients into the Arata family and watching those relationships grow over the years. We truly value both the professional and personal facets of each client.
Over the three plus decades I have worked here, the “team” concept never ceases to amaze me. We have “well oiled” team players who continuously work together to keep our clients and exhibitors happy!
The relationships I have developed with clients over the many years of working together have been amazing! I have developed incredible friendships and I have watched many clients’ children go from middle school to college to becoming parents themselves.
That continues to amaze me every day!
“ A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business” – Henry Ford. At Arata Expositions, Inc. we deliver success while forging lasting relationships.
My favorite part of this job is when a show manager or exhibitor sees a finished custom structure or booth for the first time that I’ve worked on with our production and design team created and says “This is better than I imagined”.
Working hard for something you love is called passion. It amazes me daily how much passion our Arata team has for our clients.
There are two words that stand out for me in the Meetings Business. Service & Integrity. These words are the reason I have been with Arata Expositions, Inc. for over 15 years. These two words are ingrained in the AEI corporate philosophy. I believe the AEI level of service, and the integrity with which that service is provided, are unsurpassed in the industry today.
