About AEI

Arata Expositions, Inc. is a leading convention and trade show contractor specializing in providing the ultimate service to its partner clients and their exhibitors. Our focus for the past four decades has been, and continues to be, complete satisfaction for all who utilize our talents and services.

This business can be rewarding and trying at the same time. Our goal is to alleviate the hassle and stress for event producers and participating exhibitors. Thereby, allowing you to concentrate on individual clients, while entrusting AEI with the inner workings of the exhibit halls, meeting rooms, and registration areas.

As we continue to grow our portfolio of business, we will honor our initial philosophy: grow at a controlled pace and provide the very best services without jeopardizing the end result – quality performance and total satisfaction.  We pride ourselves on:

Proven Experience: Our staff has significant professional event production experience, most with a more than 15 year tenure with the AEI Team.

Right Sized Contractor: We are positioned well by being established in the industry; large enough to meet your requirements, yet flexible enough to meet your specific needs.

Originality: AEI’s collaborative approach provides you with tailored and fresh designs that are customized to your event.

Service: Quite simply this is our hallmark and at the core of our business model.  Our priorities are timely and organized show planning, exhibitor liaison, and smooth onsite operations.

Dedicated Account Manager: We provide you a dedicated account manager from day one.  This allows us to know your show intimately from start to finish, year after year.  Unlike others in our industry, AEI does not hand off your planning or production to another division after the contract is signed.  We have organized our operations to ensure continuity throughout your event’s lifecycle.

AEI works closely with each customer through every step of the event planning, management, and the execution process.  AEI brings its collective expertise to ensure only the best results for our clients by committing to these three steps:

  • Contingencies are handled with flexibility and resolved with enthusiasm.

Post-Show Support:
