About BrightPipe

BrightPipe strives to provide all your technology needs for your tradeshow or event. Our experienced team of engineers and technicians has decades of experience in both hardware and software design. Our goal is to provide you with extraordinary service along with consistent and reliable equipment. We own nearly all of the inventory we provide to our clients and we do everything possible in the planning process to ensure your event is set up and opens with no surprises – none.  Our hardware solutions range from LED video walls to simple laptop computer deployments. Our software team has created interactive games, traffic building activities, electronic document fulfillment and lead retrieval solutions for our clients. Regardless of your needs BrightPipe has the experience and the people in place to help you solve A/V and lead capture problems to help you get results.


BrightPipe was started in 1991 by two graduates of the Georgia Institute of Technology. The early years were focused on embedded systems design, digital and analog circuit design and firmware coding for a variety of microprocessor-based systems. Our technical roots are strong and provide our team with a unique insight into design and problem solving. One of our first tradeshow projects was a custom report generator for a large pharmaceutical company. After scanning the doctor’s badge we created a report that showed the efficacy of our client’s products compared to competitive drugs. This application was so effective on the show floor that BrightPipe was engaged to create a version that was rolled out to their nation-wide sales team of thousands of reps. The rest, as they say, is history. For the past 15 years we have worked exclusively in the tradeshow and event technology world helping our customers solve technical problems while providing the very best equipment and technical support possible.

BrightPipe is headquartered in Atlanta but we service events nationwide and internationally. Our primary focus is on renting A/V hardware, but we also provide interactive development, custom lead retrieval solutions, internet services, and traffic building activities for our clients.

Connecting Your Events
to Your Sales Pipeline

Face-to-face marketing is frequently considered the redheaded step child of the marketing mix.  Most often this is because the ROI for events can be difficult to determine. The history of BrightPipe in tradeshows started with a project designed to provide information that showed how effective our client’s products in the attendee’s very own back yard. We went on to develop a variety of lead retrieval, electronic detailing tools, electronic literature systems and a wide variety of traffic builder and engaging booth activities. Our experienced team is happy to discuss the challenges you have with traffic building and ROI measurement regarding your event program. We are available to offer our insight to you based on years of experience. Whether you use our services or not, we are always excited to help our friends in the exhibit world in any way we can.

Proprietary E4 Process

BrightPipe’s E4 Process has evolved from years of successfully helping clients solve technical challenges with their exhibit program. Most of our clients come to us because they struggle with finding a consistent A/V partner, find it difficult to generate traffic in their exhibit or can’t effectively measure the results of their events. Our E4 Process was created to help our clients solve these problems.

  • Engage
  • What is in it for me? It is difficult to engage attendees to cross from the aisle into your booth. We have developed a variety of engaging traffic building concepts that almost guarantee you will get foot traffic in your booth.

  • Entertain
  • Attendees often spend hours and hours at events participating in education and networking sessions that can be dry and boring. Creating an entertaining experience in your exhibit helps hold their attention and keeps them interested in hearing more about what you have to say.

  • Educate
  • While they are engaged and entertained we now have an opportunity to educate the attendee about the benefits of your products or services. We suggest picking one or two key takeaway messages and embedding those messages into the traffic building activity of the both.

  • Evaluate
  • The heart to any successful engagement program is the ability to measure results. BrightPipe has been measuring results at events for decades. We can embed measurement into programs we design for you or empower your agency or content partner with badge scanning technology so that they can create this for you.

    The E4 Process is grounded in common sense and years of experience in the tradeshow industry. There is no one answer to solve all problems but by using this process we have always had a positive impact on our client’s events.
