Meet Dan Luken, Tradeshow & Event Specialist

Dive into our Q&A with Dan!


Question: How long have you been a part of the ADEX team? 
Answer: 30 years

What is your role at ADEX? 
Tradeshow and Event Specialist

What does tradeshow and event specialists do? 
We help organize and plan shows and events for clients

What does your day-to-day look like?  
It means we have to know our clients, their inventory, organize labor, services, logistics, all the way to dismantling the booth and shipping it back to storage.

What is the wildest thing you have experienced while traveling? 
I saw a 60’ back wall fall over, because it wasn’t supported correctly. (This was not an ADEX wall, just to be sure!)

What is the most ‘disgusting’ thing you have ever eaten? 
I tried an oyster, no thank you

If you weren’t a Trade Show and Event Specialist what would you want to do? 
I love to help people, whether it be fixing something on their house to helping someone be successful on their job.

That’s why I like my job, I like to see how excited clients get when their new booth comes to fruition and they are just overwhelmed.

What is your favorite ADEX memory? 
I actually have two, the first is when my son came to work with us, and the second is when I received my cruise for 10 year anniversary.

Close your eyes for this one…Where is your happy place? 
Sitting on a beach watching the sun come up.

ADEX named to Event Marketer’s Fab 50!

Today’s fabricators wear many hats. They design and build the stunning housing for the experiences so many brands want to bring to life.

But in addition to that role, more and more the industry’s many fabricators are strategic partners, helping to integrate technology and digital into builds that amplify experiences, up the engagement factor and deliver on marketing objectives.

From designing spaces live-wired for social media, to building studios within event footprints for live broadcasting, to dreaming up upside-down exhibits, multisensory walls, scenic replicas and large-scale graphics—this industry’s builders are also designing for screened engagements as much as they are for eyeballs on-site.

This is why that ADEX is proud to be named to Event Marketer’s 2018 Fab 50!
