Expo Centric
Our Journey
2009
Stan Kruss, the founder of Expo Centric, had a brilliant idea as he started noticing wastage and unnecessary costs in the exhibition industry. Why not offer a new and innovative solution on how to build exhibition stands?! Innovation was his main driver and he decided to start Expo Centric: A company that is creating INNOVATION through PASSION. We won some big awards in the first year of operating: Simplot, Best Stand Fine Food Perth and Seafood Experience, Runner up for Best Stand Fine Food Perth. Stan managed to bring on board single-handedly the first wave of big clients for the year, Simplot, Illy Coffee, Cerebos, One Steel and ABB.
Our Journey
2010
Stan travelled the world in pursuit of a better building method. He finally found the perfect solution, Aluvision in a town called Deinze in Belgium. Experiencing high demand for his custom exhibition stands, Stan opened the doors to the first Expo Centric office. Stan won the following incredible awards: Advantedge – Best Stand MFAA Birko – Best Stand Food Service and Bakery Expo Simplot – Runner up for Best Stand Fine Food Queensland Vermeer – Best Stand APPEA. The client base began to grow with MLC, NAB, Tranfield Services, Kone and Blue Scope Steel.
Our Journey
2011
Now that Stan secured his competitive edge solution, it was time to take the quality of the exhibition stands up a notch. He decided to bring all the manufacturing in-house to have complete control over the entire process, end-to-end. All the hard work was paying off with gaining an even larger client base of Sanofi, Philippines Tourism, Novartis, GWF, and Bristol Myers Squibb.
Our Journey
2012
Exponential growth and new additions to the team, led to the need for a larger office and factory space. We found a beautiful new office space in Lane Cove. We were recognised a handful of awards, such as, ARBS Best Stand Award for Samsung, Best Stand Award for Royal Canin at ASAVA and Stan was awarded with Anthill 30 under 30 Winner. New big clients for the year: ABBOTT, Mitsubishi, Samsung, Olympus, Royal Canin and Schlumberger.
Our Journey
2013
Stan received another notable award, the 2013’s Hot 30 Under 30 Anthill Award. As well as the Best Custom Stand Award for Avid at SMPTE. We experienced an exponential growth of 40% from the previous year. More and more impressive clients continued to come onboard with the additions of Sony, Varian, Alcon, Panasonic, Astra Zeneca, Hino, Johnson & Johnson and Konami.
Our Journey
2014
Awards and recognition for Stan and his accomplishments continued to roll in. He was awarded with, BRW Fast 100, 2014 Anthill Smart 100, 2014’s Hot 30 under 30 Smart Company and Display of Excellence for Volvo Sydney Boat Show – it was a big year to say the least. In 2014 we designed, project-managed and built more than 196 exhibitions stands across Australia and New Zealand. This was a record-breaking number and without the effort of the entire Team, it would have not been possible. You guessed it, more companies wanted us to design and build their stands. These included Santos, 3M, CSL, Mercedes, NSW Government, PACCAR and Smith & Nephew.
Our Journey
2015
Stan, the founder of Expo Centric, was part of Shark Tank and showcased Expo Centric to the world. What an amazing success! Expo Centric won the Outstanding Truck Manufacture Display for the PACCAR Australia stand at the Brisbane Truck Show. More clients that Expo Centric started working with include: TAB Corp, EA, Allergan, Kawasaki, P&O and Volvo Group.
Our Journey
2016
A steady and very productive year for us, where we focused on producing state of the art exhibition designs and building the highest quality stands for our clients. We have started working with clients like Allianz, J&J, Club Marine, Mercedes, Invisalign and Canon. And many more!
Our Journey
2017
2017 has been the biggest year yet. Expo Centric had once again outgrew their office and factory, with new team additions and even more extensive client base. Rydalmere is now the new HQ for Expo Centric. More big clients joined the tribe, Square Enix, Boehringer Ingelheim, ASC, Serco and Babcock.
Our Journey
2018
2018 was a stellar year for Expo Centric. We brought LED screens in house, expanded our exhibition stand offering to Europe and helped Victoria’s Secret launch their new product range in Australia. Some key clients we welcomed on board this year include Laminex, Biesse and Norton.
Our Journey
2019
2019 saw a high focus on technology use in exhibition stand design. LED video walls and touch screen kiosks were incorporated into majority of stand designs, along with increased use of immersive experiences on clients stands. The Expo Centric team grew with new positions created in every department, as did our client base with the addition of some big names such as Austal, INPEX, PEGA and Waterpik.
Our Journey
2020
COVID-19 totally devastated the exhibition industry globally. Australia’s business events and exhibition industry was almost immediately shut down with 96% of events scheduled for 2020 being cancelled or postponed. The time we usually spend on designing and building exhibition stands left us with space to work on improving company processes and procedures, ensuring they are the most effective for when events do return. We also invested time into developing and sourcing premium solutions for the Australian event industry including: Virtual Experiences | AirClad | Exhibit Central
