EDPA and the EDPA Foundation are two sister organizations that are shaping the future of the industry with best practices and advanced education. With chapters around the US, the EDPA works to unite and educate industry members on current strategies and topics of industry concern.
Founded in 1954, The Experiential Designers and Producers Association (EDPA) is recognized internationally and serves thousands of professional members representing more than 300 corporations across 18 countries.
Each year, the EDPA drives industry education programs and professional networking events through our regional chapters. We also bring together members and thought-leaders from around the world to ACCESS, the only industry association meeting and event of its kind. ACCESS provides a platform for prospective EDPA members and members alike to share and engage in programs and play at a professional conference unlike any other.
The Experiential Designers & Producers Association Foundation was formed in the Spring of 2001. It is a foundation led by executives from all segments of the industry that have a common goal: The heartfelt desire to reach out to our peers in their time of need.
Since 2001, the EDPA Foundation has:
41 Foundation Grantors
$400,000+ in the EDPA Foundation Endowment
70+ scholarships awarded to students of industry families since 2004
100+ industry families provided with financial and emotional support during times of hardship
2 Partner schools with exhibit design programs supported: the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and Bemidji State University
Each year at EDPA Access, the Foundation has a silent auction to raise money for the Endowment. For the past 2 years Nuvista has spear-headed the auction raising over $70K each year for the past 2 events. If you or your organization is interested in becoming a member of EDPA, joining a chapter or assisting the Foundation go to www.edpa.com for more information.
Professional, experienced installation and dismantle, budget development, partner sourcing, on-site supervision and invoice reconciliation, Nuvista does it all.
