Vision Expo 2018

About Us

Vision Expo’s optical trade show will be hitting the East Coast before we know it. This show is the perfect intersection where eyecare meets eyewear, with more than 5,000 fashion and luxury brands attending.

Gilbert has attended Vision Expo East for over 30 years, and we know that show inside out. It also helps that we’ve attended over 550 shows at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City throughout our 30+ years in the business.

While we’ll admit we’re perfectionists, we’re not just about the finished product. We’re focused on building relationships, experiences, and spaces that speak for themselves. Who are we? We’re craftsmen, designers, and a team of professionals – your partners.

What sets us apart

Smarter Supervision

Your custom exhibit’s lead carpenter is also the lead supervisor on the show floor, so nothing gets lost in translation. Our model gives you a quicker, more efficient installation.

Custom Design

We start by creating a thread – the central theme of your project – and weave it into a design that’s fit to your brand.

Full Finishing

Not every element is built for the spotlight, but every part gets the Gilbert treatment. Even the deepest depths of a closet get finished inside & out.

Nationwide Storage and Care

From coast to coast, we’re stacked with warehousing and care facilities so setting you up where it’s most sensible is no problem.

In-House Event Services Team

Our 24/7 services team is committed to taking a load off your plate, coordinating all onsite activities – from exhibit installation through dismantle.
