EDPA RFP Certification, equivalent to the “Good Housekeeping Seal,” that recognizes exhibit organizations on the basis of business integrity, capabilities and operational practices. This credential is awarded to companies who meet the EDPA's stringent standards for business practices and is shared amongst only the highest-qualified exhibit designers and producers in the industry.
Launched in early 2014, the EDPA RFP Certification Program was created in response to an industry survey of corporate trade show exhibitors that revealed a desire for more transparency and consistency during the RFP process. Certification is granted by iCompli, an independent third party audit firm who reviews the member company’s application and verifies compliance with standards and practices.
