Skyline Exhibits Acquires Bay Area Dealer Office

The acquisition marks the second completed in 2023 as the company begins a year of growth.

EAGAN, MINN. – January 23, 2023 – Skyline Exhibits, a trade show exhibit company headquartered in Eagan, Minnesota, announced today that it acquired its top-tier authorized dealer, Skyline Bay Area. This office serves clients throughout the northern California market including the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, and Reno, Nevada.

This acquisition unifies two long-term partners rooted in helping brand marketers with their exhibiting programs. Owned by Chuck Boyle and Lorraine Stewart, Skyline Bay Area has established itself as a top-tier dealer with over 20 years in business and earned multiple dealer awards in recognition of its performance. The team has built a loyal client base of over 1,000 companies including Guidewire Software, Check Point, Amerit Fleet Solutions, FreeWire, and Puronics.

Chuck Boyle and several key members of his team will be joining Skyline Exhibits.

“We have built a strong relationship with Skyline over the years as an authorized dealer and are excited to take this next step,” said Boyle. “Officially joining the Skyline team provides us with additional resources and expertise to ensure our client’s exhibiting experience is seamless and exceeds their expectations.”

"We are very excited to welcome Skyline Bay Area to the team,” said Anthony Floreano, Skyline CEO. “Chuck and Lorraine and their talented team have built an impressive business and loyal client base and we look forward to working with their clients and team more closely.”

Skyline is preparing for a busy year with new members of the executive team recently added and significant investments made in new technology and equipment. This acquisition marks the second to close in 2023, and the third since the company received investment from Gemspring Capital in 2020. Over the past year, Skyline’s revenue has continued to rise. Its client base has expanded significantly as exhibitors are returning to shows and looking for high-impact, custom modular exhibits to amplify their brands. The company focuses on the client experience by providing expert service and support throughout the entire exhibiting process.
