We make wow

Hi! We’re EWI.

We’re an experience marketing house that specializes in exhibits, events, and retail environments. We used to be called Exhibit Works, but changed our name after expanding our services to include a variety of experiential touchpoints. After nearly 40 years helping customers navigate the buying cycle, we understand the power of experience. And we apply it to everything we do. At a mall, marina, airfield, or festival, we help relationship-driven marketers dream up and deliver the meaningful brand moments their customers crave.

Creating a space where brands can shine is our sweet spot.

When we opened our doors in Detroit in 1979, we were a small group of designers and builders devoted to helping others succeed in this industry we love so much. And while EWI has grown to six global locations, our focus hasn’t changed. We care that our clients benefit from our work, and that their audiences find value in what we do.

There’s a reason the most ambitious companies in the world trust EWI to interpret their brand in the live space.

The Holy Grail of ROI

With the same entrepreneurial drive as when we opened our doors, we continue to push boundaries—developing innovative concepts, materials, and techniques that are less costly and more effective. Because our involvement ranges from concept to execution, we’re able to impact the return as well as the investment—all while providing a turnkey solution.

Right from the start, we partner strategists and designers with engineers, developers, and carpenters. It’s how we invent lightweight material that cuts cost and adds intrigue. It’s how we develop CRM software that results in more leads and less stress. Every day we push the boundaries of what has been done before, pulling from an in-house team skilled in:

Strategy & Creative
Engineering & Manufacturing
Experience Management & Logistics
Event Production & Management
Interactive Development
