Sparks Continues Multiphase Growth Plan with Acquisition of Chicago-based 3D Exhibits

Sparks Continues Multiphase Growth Plan with Acquisition of Chicago-based 3D Exhibits
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — (February 09, 2021 ) Sparks , a leading global brand experience agency, today
announced the acquisition o f 3D Exhibits , a known leader in the trade show exhibits industry. The
addition of 3D Exhibits, headquartered in the greater Chicago area, with locations in Cleveland,
Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Las Vegas, completes Sparks’ midwest geographic expansion strategy.

“This acquisition significantly increases our trade show business and is consistent with our approach of
viewing this challenging time as an opportunity for dynamic moves that might otherwise not have been
possible,” states Sparks CEO Scott Tarte. “The addition of 3D Exhibits advances our strategic goal of
filling the middle of the country and emerging a stronger, more complete company than we were
pre-pandemic.”

As the companies work through long-term growth plans, a process estimated to take approximately one
year, 3D will retain its name in the marketplace, operating as “3D Exhibits, a Sparks company.” 3D
clients will benefit from expanded creative and strategic resources, a large proprietary events division,
and increased geographic reach both domestically and internationally.

The CEO and owner of 3D Exhibits, Gene Faut, joins the Sparks executive team as President of the 3D
Exhibits division and will hold a minority ownership position in a growing Sparks entity.

“I am excited about the partnership between these two strong companies. Our combined resources,
global reach, and talented personnel will provide immediate value to all of our customers, says Faut.
“While we are two different companies, we share similar philosophies, commitments and standards.
Together these values will make the combined entity stronger as we ride out this storm and build towards
the future.”

“In 3D, we have acquired a terrific business, with exceptional employees and a proven leader in Gene,”
adds Tarte. “The entire Sparks organization welcomes them to the family and looks forward to
collaborating to build upon their impressive success.”

The addition of 3D Exhibits, along with the previously announced acquisition of Group Delphi in Q4 2020,
is a continuation of Sparks’ multiphase growth plan. Now with major fabrication facilities in Atlanta,
Chicago, Fort Wayne, Las Vegas, and Philadelphia, eight sales and service offices across the US, and
international offices in Paris, France and Shanghai, China, the Company is well-positioned for continued
growth in both new and current client channels.
