Founded in 1987 by David and Leslie Mihalik, Elite Cargo focused ourselves as being a carrier of computer hardware, software and high tech materials. In 1990, a name change to ELITeXPO Cargo Systems was required when the cargo mix had changed from high tech to trade show and trade show materials. Larger facilities and airport access prompted a move to Bensenville outside of Chicago’s O’Hare airport.
After a few years it was evident to both David and Leslie that the Trade Show Industry was going to be the focus and the future of the company.
ELITeXPO continued on our path of tradeshow industry innovations and high level shipping service. In 2002, a facility was purchased in South Elgin, Illinois to accommodate future requirements and to assist in the equity growth of the company. The new facility has customized offices, a Logistics Operations atrium, a recreation/media room, climate controlled warehouse facility, and state of the art technology wired throughout.
In 2009, ELITeXPO launched it's Tradeshow Services division, once again expanding its service offerings to meet the growing needs of our clients. Our Tradeshow Services division is a perfect compliment to our founding core discipline offering our customers full Property Management of their exhibits. This new offering includes exhibit sales and rental, booth design, tradeshow graphics, lighting, installation and dismantle, storage and freight logistics.
ELITeXPO remains committed to providing the best value and service to the event industry. We will always make ourselves available to you 24-7-365 days a year. After all, we realize that no matter where, no matter when, no matter how...the tradeshow must go on!
