Our Company

About us

In 1986, Gilbert and Barry Ballen founded Gilbert Displays with the mission of providing brands with a one-stop solution to their trade show needs. Their commitment to quality and service positioned Gilbert as one of the most trusted organizations in the industry to provide solutions to our clients’ problems and drive results.

Now known simply as Gilbert, we’ve developed into the premiere destination for trade show exhibits, commercial interiors, and corporate events. We believe in helping brands achieve their full potential through thoughtfully-designed environments and impactful experiences that achieve our clients’ goals.

We’re always striving for greatness

We take pride in our work and only deliver a finished product that we’d be proud to put our name on. We believe in thoughtful design, quality materials, tested construction methods, and never cutting corners.

We’re big, but not too big

We’re committed to giving you the personalized attention you deserve. And even though you’ll feel like our only client, we have the network, resources and passion to turn even your wildest ideas into reality.

Our clients keep coming back

We’re proud to say that over the years our business has grown mostly through client satisfaction and word of mouth - and that testament to our work is the best compliment we could ask for.
