Southern Exhibition Services team

"Thank you so much for helping us create a successful event!

Frank and his team are professional, courteous and FAST. I was so impressed with the speed that they put together the whole show!

Everyone attending the Expo commented on the clean and well laid out booths. SES provided a much better atmosphere with newer chairs and drape compared to previous years! It raised the bar for our vendors and attendees."
