Why Work Here?

Company is growing! Immediate Hire!

Capitol Exhibit Services, Inc. (CESi) was established in Springfield, Virginia in 1988 to service clients in the Tradeshow and Museum industries nationwide. CESi relocated to our present facility in Manassas, Virginia in July, 1991 following three years of tremendous growth. Our 125,000 square foot facility houses a staff of over 60 dedicated professionals, including project managers, designers, detailers, cabinetmakers, graphics production specialists, AV specialists and host of highly qualified personnel who support the administrative, logistical, and warehousing needs of our operation. The Tradeshow and Museum industries are two very different lines of business that require very specific skills and disciplines. Fully understanding this, CESi created two distinct Divisions in 2013 to provide the best possible product and service to Museum and Tradeshow clients and, at the same time, brand ourselves as specialists in both categories. Capitol Museum Services (CMS) and Capitol Tradeshow Services (CTS) each have specific assets and specialists intended to specifically serve their respective missions. Over the years, CMS has retained long-lasting relationships with clients, including the Smithsonians, the New York Hall of Science, The John F. Kennedy Library, National Archives, National Portrait Gallery, Botanical Gardens, National Geographic, Center for Military History, and the National Park Service. At the same time, CTS has expanded our offering to International clients as well as U.S. clients who exhibit at international show sites. Since our inception, clients, including NASA, Northrup Grumman, Aerojet Rocketdyne, Orbital, and Sallie Mae have anchored the Tradeshow Division and many remain with us today. How do we make this happen? We hire the best qualified people and maintain state of the art equipment to provide the best possible outcome for every client we have the privilege to serve.
