2017 Small Business of the Year

Blue Sky Exhibits

Blue Sky Exhibits was named the 2017 Small Business of the Year by the Cobb Chamber of Commerce at the June First Monday Breakfast, presented by sponsors NovaCopy and Servis1st Bank.

Blue Sky Exhibits is a premier exhibit company with expertise in design, manufacturing and field-related services to the Trade Show Industry. Owners Don Keller and Tim Kelly launched Blue Sky Exhibits in 2003 and today it’s a complete turn-key exhibit firm offering solutions that enable its clients to sell their products and meet marketing objectives.

Blue Sky Exhibits impressively stays in a constant state of improvement, questioning how processes are done, always seeking improvement and the highest quality standards. Since its inception, Blue Sky has experienced consistent and incremental increases in revenue. This success began to place a strain on internal resources—there were break downs in quality, client responsiveness and profitability. Keller and Kelly made a bold decision was made to re-invent the company. Through a comprehensive analysis, every aspect of the operation was addressed. A new operations manual was written, new personnel were hired, investments in team building were made and a rebrand was launched. This effort paid off with a 300 percent growth in profitability and Blue Sky Exhibits is poised for continued growth and success.

As the Chamber’s 2017 Small Business of the Year, Blue Sky Exhibits will compete in the state’s small business of the year competition.
