EDPA 65 Year Anniversary
The most common form of business travel, in 1954, was the Greyhound bus. With major exhibition cities spread out across the United States, the cost of transporting labor for installing and dismantling exhibits was prohibitive. Exhibit houses found the solution by partnering with local labor and exhibit companies to take on that work.
To cement these relationships and network with new partners, a collection of entrepreneurs and business people held the first meeting of the Exhibit Designers & Producers Association in December 1954.
To celebrate the the anniversary of the EDPA, enVu is collecting, curating and digitizing photos and documents from the last 65 years, to create an archive for all members to access and enjoy.
More information about the archive project will be announced over the next few months.
If you have any information, photos, documents or stories to be included in the archive, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
