35 Years of Wow!
Thirty-five years ago, one man started a marketing company in Greensboro, North Carolina. Initially it catered to the recreational vehicle industry but over time it built its reputation designing and building cutting-edge trade show displays for thousands of leading brands.
That company is Apple Rock Advertising and Promotion, Inc. and the man is Eric Burg, the founder and CEO. Apple Rock designs, fabricates and builds trade show displays, creates experiential marketing events as well as custom corporate, retail and museum interiors.
Today Apple Rock has offices in three locations: Greensboro, NC; Las Vegas, NV, and NY/NJ. The team of more than 100 employees is comprised of dedicated event marketers, graphic designers, trade show strategists, expert printers, engineers, crafts persons, account representatives, project managers and more.
Exhibitor Media Group, publisher of the award-winning monthly magazine EXHIBITOR, featuring best practices in trade show marketing, and Find It – Marketplace, the buyer’s guide to trade show products and services, recently announced their 2023 Find It – Top 40 winners. Apple Rock was once again selected for the honor.
The annual Find It – Top 40 list honors the industry's top exhibit producers and recognizes the best US exhibit houses based on a variety of criteria within five different categories:
- Company and Capabilities
- Honors and Awards
- Thought Leadership and Industry Participation
- Service and Reliability
- Creativity and Key Differentiators
“With 35 years of experience, Apple Rock continues to create experiential marketing in ways so that our customers’ brands connect with their target audiences through unforgettable, personal experiences,” according to Apple Rock CEO Eric Burg. “We are honored that Exhibitor Magazine recognizes our level of quality and commitment to our customers,” he added.
In the past year, Apple Rock has also been honored by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals with two Platinum and one Gold MarComm awards for Team Achievement in trade show exhibit design. These were followed earlier this month by a Platinum and Gold Hermes Creative Award, from the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals.
