For the eighth straight year, Creatacor has been selected as an Event Marketer Fab 50 company, representing the top fabricators serving the event and trade show industry. At Creatacor, we take great pride in the work we do, and the relationships we establish with our clients. When an industry leader like Event Marketer recognizes us, we are honored and humbled to be included with so many great companies across North America.
The Fab 50 application is intensive, covering multiple facets including the company’s culture, specialties, capabilities, project highlights, and client referrals. The list serves as a great resource for event managers looking for partners as much of the vetting process has already been completed. They have the knowledge all those on the list have the skill set required and the rest is finding the best match for them.
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the event industry extremely hard the past 21 months. The Fab 50 used to be a list of worthy competitions but this year it means more, it’s a list of worthy survivors. The application asked “What is your company’s proudest accomplishment of the past 12 months?” and I have to believe our answer was similar to many on the list:
“In 34 years, we have survived through many tough times, wars, recessions (great and small), and 9/11, but this was by far the greatest challenge. In New York, we were barred from coming to our facility for over a month. We had to create safe reopening plans, learn about PPE, navigate a confusing PPP government program when no one knew exactly how it would work, listen to countless Zoom webinars on multiple topics, keep staff motivated, and figure out what work we could do in a Covid world.
With so much bad happening in the world and too many being personally affected in some way, our team still came together right away to fight to keep us going. While disappointed we had to cut some of our outstanding team members, we are adding staff again. Our team took the time to learn new skills and improve internal processes. There was never any quit and in many ways, it was inspiring.
I hope this isn’t too simplistic an answer, but as the Whos said in Dr. Seuss’ book, ‘We are here! We are here! We are here!’ …and we are ready to get back to business in the new normal.”
Congratulations to all the Fab 50 honorees, we are a resilient bunch!
