Brett Lipeles' Profile

Return to Brett's Webpage

Brett Lipeles is President of Exhibit & Display Consultants (EDC). As a leader of a team of consultants, Brett works directly for clients as part of their team. This has allowed his group to become more closely integrated with clients' marketing teams, and achieve exceptional results 

Brett is an entrepreneur and has been involved with a number of high-growth companies in various capacities to develop, improve, and expand their trade show and corporate events programs

He began his career as a sales and trade show coordinator at a Fortune 1000 company where he managed the division's trade show program for twelve years.  When his employer moved, Brett became an account executive, field supervisor, and business partner at a burgeoning trade show exhibit house where his team designed, built, and managed a number of now well-known brands' exhibits:  APC (American Power Conversion), K2 Corp (maker of K2 Skis), Internet Appliance, Lite Life Foods, Polarguard Insulation, Samsonite, Stonyfield Farms, SoBe Beverages, and Southpole Clothing.   

After five years at the exhibit house, Brett founded Exhibit and Display Consultants (EDC)  in 2002 with the goal of increasing profits by teaching company personnel how to reduce their face to face marketing costs.  In ensuing years, in addition to servicing past clients, he developed additional accounts such as Bench Clothing, DynCorp International (defense industry), Hilton Hotels, SMUD (Sacramento Municipal Utility Company), and Steve Madden / JUMP Footwear.  

At EDC, Brett and his team accelerate their clients' growth from start-ups to multi-million dollar entities by helping them execute proven and innovative marketing strategies, expand their markets, and significantly reduce costs.  EDC has worked with many start-ups in addition to mid-sized companies and corporations in the Fortune 1000.
