Excel Decorators Corporate History

Created to meet the needs of show organizers, Excel Decorators was formed in 1967 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Through the years, Excel has opened additional full operations in Springfield, Illinois, Louisville, Kentucky and Columbus, Ohio.

We are independently owned which allows a more personal experience for the show organizer. Our shows are not contracted then “handed off” to Account Representatives. The same individual is with you every step of the way and is dedicated to working with you to make your event the best that it can be. Our goal is to make your event planning tasks simplified and with less stress.

We do total event service, which begins with the initial planning and follows through to the close of the event and post show support. Our staff is a group of dedicated professionals who are committed to serving you and your exhibitors. We strive to make the extra effort with show organizers, exhibitors and facilities. Our most important concern is ensuring that everyone involved shines.
