ABQ Business Receives GSA Contract from Local LANL $113,247 & $23,000 SNL GSA Contracts

EXHIB-IT! Trade Show Marketing Experts, a WBE-Women Owned Small Business Certified business headquartered in Albuquerque, has landed a $113,247 from our Local Los Alamos National Laboratories and $23,000 from Sandia National Laboratories on their GSA contract to produce environmental displays and graphics.

“Receiving these LANL & SNL government contracts shows that there is business happening in New Mexico,” says company owner and CEO DJ Heckes. “But finding the right opportunity and delivering on the opportunity in a timely manner is what is needed to be successful.”

EXHIB-IT Tradeshow Marketing Experts is also listed as a GSA Certified Small Woman-owned Business. And Heckes credits her small-business acumen, along with a strong, focused and positive-minded business plan, as the keys to her success despite what the media says about New Mexico.

Being a small business in today’s environment is a plus in that a small business can offer the same things that larger businesses do, but with more service and better prices, Heckes says. She credits her company’s growth in the midst of economic challenges by continued positivity and exemplary customer service. “If you, as a business owner, choose to focus on the negative forces surrounding the business community rather than opportunity and service to customers, you’ll find that your revenue goals are harder to reach,” she says. “Not because you are battling with the economy, but because you are battling your own excuses.”

Her no-nonsense expertise has been widely sought by business professionals nationwide, assisting them in marketing, business development, and leadership skills.

Heckes’ company, EXHIB-IT! has won many national awards due to Heckes’ leadership role in her business and in her ongoing training – and level of trustworthiness – in her staff. Heckes is also author of two books Full BRAIN Marketing and The NOISE Behind Business – How to Make Tradeshows Work! Her Company also promotes economic growth in our state through her two annual events – Jingle Mingle coming up November 16, 2016 530-730pm @ EXHIB-IT! showroom and the EXHIB-IT!’s 10th Annual B2B Event @ Isleta Resort & Casino April 25, 2017 4-8pm.
