Shepard Buys Markey’s Exposition Services; Second Purchase This Month


Atlanta, GA—Shepard, an Atlanta-based event-production company, announced that it had purchased Markey’s Exposition Services of Indianapolis for an undisclosed price.

“We are delighted to welcome the Markey’s expo team to the Shepard family. Their local expertise and client-centered reputation will make for a smooth transition with our Indianapolis team and help us grow our presence in the Midwest,” says Carl Mitchell, Shepard’s President.

Markey’s Exposition has provided general-contracting services to the local region since 2008. Shepard opened its Indianapolis facility earlier this year. The Markey’s acquisition provides an immediate acceleration of growth in the Midwest and increased capability for Shepard’s regional customers, company officials say.

Richard Anderson, Shepard’s Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, says the company completed its purchase of Markey’s Exposition last week from Markey’s Rental Staging.

Earlier this month, Shepard purchased Aquarian, a Virginia-based producer of corporate events and large-scale entertainment shows.
