Aspects such as thought leadership, operations and entrepreneurship were also included in the assessment.
This award reinforces our ambition to grow further in Europe and gives us a direct link to the US market, which also often needs to realise projects in Europe.”Michael Debaveye, CEO
A panel of jurors assessed Creaplan Group based on a thorough evaluation process with more than 50 criteria, including our stand portfolio, our technical capacities, and client testimonials. This is the first international award for Creaplan Group - Creaplan’s individual stand activities have won awards in the World Exhibition Stand Awards in the past.
Foothold in the US
Creaplan Group CEO Michael Debaveye travelled to the EXHIBITORLIVE event in Louisville to receive the award and strengthen relationships with US partners. Michael recounts, “With the Creaplan Group, we realise projects all over Europe from our head offices in Belgium and the Netherlands; Creaplan for the stands and interior part, For Live for the live events. This award reinforces our ambition to grow further in Europe and gives us a direct link to the US market, which also often needs to realise projects in Europe.”
