Since 1979, Nexus Exhibits has been the leading provider of innovative enhanced visual displays and services for exhibits, events, and environments. Its customers range from Fortune 500 companies to fast-growing start-ups, as it is known for its innovation and service. It envisions finding the best visual branding solution for its clients’ exhibits, events, and environments to support its brand and marketing strategy. Additionally, it aims to establish long-lasting connections with its clients by providing uncompromised quality and superior value. “To produce captivating displays that deliver results for our clients!” Milena mentions.
Its full-service, turnkey solutions include award-winning design, custom fabrication, in-house printing, installations, branded apparel and promotional swag, and ‘Nexus Décor’ fixtures and signage that market the corporate brand in retail, office, and corporate environments. Milena and her team help clients communicate their brands by creating, crafting, and taking charge of their exhibits, displays, and signage. “We are now expanding into offering AR (augmented reality) within your event for the “wow” factor,” says Milena.
The company offers a one-stop shop for complete turnkey visual branding solutions for its clients to strategically grow their businesses through bold design and delivering state-of-the-art trade show exhibits, displays, experiential environments, events, and workspace branding services. Moreover, Milena states that Nexus Exhibits is different from its competitors because of its family-focused culture. Its culture has always been one of diversity and inclusion. “We are about half male and half female and have always hired based on merit and not gender or race,” she adds. She and her team try to acknowledge holidays of all cultures and have changed their Christmas party to Annual Holiday party as the company has diversity in cultures on its team. She wanted to ensure that their significant others who attended the party felt safe and included. “True diversity and inclusion come down to strength in employee engagement. We have always felt that at the core, true diversity and inclusion come down to strength in our team members,” she adds. “Thus, to unlock the full potential of a diverse workforce, we ensure that it’s a safe place to propose novel ideas; we ensure that we give actionable feedback and have always implemented feedback from the team.”
Milena highlights that by using EOS (entrepreneurs operating system), the entire department’s processes have been documented, and employees have become a very lean moving machine. The business adopted a comprehensive collection of straightforward ideas and useful tools that assisted her in developing not just her career but also clear and understandable processes and procedures for each department. Additionally, she and her leadership team were able to develop a strong, cohesive functions team thanks to the application of EOS. The company offers a full breakdown of every step in the process, which begins with the design team. Further, she adds, “we take our client’s ideas and turn them into a fully realized design, complete with 3D rendering, dimensions, a color palette, and a list of potential materials.” Then she and her team incorporate any element into the design; glass, mood lighting, or interactive elements. “We’re here to enable our client’s imagination and create something truly different for them.” She also says that once the company completes the design that thrills customers, it begins fulfillment. Later, Milena and her team put the plan into action and turned the approved design into a fully functional display. “Our displays shouldn’t just be about looks; they need to be practical too. That’s why we use specific materials to optimize strength, sturdiness, mobility, and convenience,” she mentions. In addition, to simplify the process, they offer set-up and tear-down services; “this is why we also specialize in installing and dismantling our client’s display,” she continues.
By way of its management division, Milena also hopes to relieve the challenges of its customers. Through this division, Milena’s clients’ displays can be stored, shipments can be organized, customs can be handled, documents can be filled out, and exhibition services can be scheduled. “It does not matter where you need to go; we’ll find the most efficient way to get their display where it needs to be—set up and ready for business,” she adds.
