The city of Houston, TX is amazingly eclectic: space exploration; a busy theater district; and the birthplace of both air conditioning and a long list of celebrities, including Beyonce, Kenny Rogers, and Howard Hughes. This southwestern city is also one of just five in the country with permanent performing arts companies in ballet, theater, music, and opera. Houston is big on the healthcare scene as well, thanks to the presence of several world-class facilities, like Texas Medical Center, and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Houston’s strong metropolitan and cultural vibe makes it ideal for trade shows, conferences, conventions, meetings, and corporate events. Thanks to the city’s stellar medical reputation, it’s often the host city for trade shows and conferences in the medical and healthcare industries.

In every industry, people have high expectations when they attend trade shows, conventions, and similar events. Designing an event that meets your own goals is hard enough, but meeting audiences’ expectations is even more challenging! Why not let experts design your next event? ProGlobalEvents design team can develop an appropriate theme and design branding, media, and other content to match to ensure your design is consistent and clear across the entire event.
What are your goals for your next event? Are you well along in the planning stages, or still stuck on finding a venue? Planning a large event is definitely not easy. There are so many details to take care of—such as finding a venue, vendors, accommodation, and sponsors—that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. You’re usually operating on a tight schedule, which only adds to the difficulty. Why not let ProGlobalEvents take over? Our experienced event-planning team has gathered a long list of industry contacts that makes the planning stages a breeze. We can quickly locate the perfect venue, vendors, and more, and even help you find sponsors. Don’t get overwhelmed by the work involved in event planning. ProGlobalEvents can make this part of the event a breeze.
With the planning phase completed, it’s time to put all that work to the test! ProGlobalEvents can help here, too, by sending an event-management team to deal with the event once it’s in motion. With us on-site, you can be sure your event will run smoothly from start to finish. If any problems arise, our capable team will handle them quickly, with minimal disruption.
Exhibit Production and Activation
Many events need exhibits, booths, portable displays, and other showcase items. ProGlobalEvents has access to a 64,000-square-foot-storage warehouse and a 65,000-square-foot production facility, and we can provide both custom-made and rental exhibits, depending on your needs. PGE exhibit services include design and manufacture, storage and shipping, and labor for installation and tear-down.
Success can be defined in a variety of ways, but when it comes to industry and Houston corporate events, it’s usually defined by how well your event measures up to the goals you’ve set for it. That means conducting a thorough post-event analysis, including data collection and review and financial analysis, followed by financial close-out to end the event. The ProGlobalEvents team can help you set goals and KPIs before the event, then perform a full analysis afterwards—to give you the information you need.
