Our Story

Ben’s love for design, organization, and logistics led to the creation of our Chicago based company with newly opened office in San Diego. We remove the hidden costs, strain on staff, and stress of preparing scenic for your event. Our Expressive Structures’ team acts as your scenic department, so you can focus on what you do best while we iron out the details.

We could talk about our amazing team for hours, but luckily for you, there is a better way to learn more. Take a look at what our clients are saying about us!

What Our Clients Are Saying

David Zarembka 8211 Q Center

Ben and Expressive Structures have been one of our “go to” vendors for full color large scale print needs and creative scenic solutions. Ben and team have the know how to get any project done on time and on budget!

David Zarembka

Technical Director at the Q Center

It was great working with Ben, I used him on one of our VIP events. We had a press conference for a new product for one of our clients and he gave plenty of suggestions as to what type of gear we needed. He was there to assist from the very beginning to the very end. His suggestions and ideas made our event a success!

Matt Sheehan 8211 Aero Specialties

Ben and the crew at Expressive Structures really went beyond the call of duty in assisting us with final design and build of two separate tower units. We had originally purchased one for use at trade shows in Europe as the light weight and portability were very attractive. After using the tower over seas we were so impressed that we are ditching a very expensive and elaborate booth and purchased a super Quad Tower.

Total design, interior lighting and graphics were handled flawlessly by Ben and the crew in under 2 weeks. Set up was a snap and the end result was very impressive. No more big booths for me.

Thanks guys for your great service and excellent products.
