James, Jamilyn and the Beaumont crew really came through for us on a last minute booth rental request. We had a show in Atlanta and they turned around the project in less than 3 weeks, handling all logistics, setting us up in a professional looking booth and responding quickly to all our questions along the way. Looking forward to working with Beaumont for future conferences.

From concept to follow through, the team at Beaumont got it right! I was thrilled with the collaboration to see our vision come to life – all with the an excellent collection of support. James and Karen with great to work with and did well to keep the ball moving and ensure we made it to the finish line promptly.

Our 20FT Linear had a custom die-cut logo and digital interfaces, that deployed in Ottawa at the RIMS Canada Conference. We were a show stopper to say the least. When the time comes for another project, I know where I’ll be going!

Trying to plan a trade show in Brussels while being located in the US was nerve-wracking, but finding Beaumont & Co. and Luciana, made it much easier! Luciana went above and beyond when there were shipping mishaps and made sure that we received our booth on a tight timeline. The quality of the booth was great and easy to put together. They really work to meet your needs.
