(Caitlyn Correia)

WORCESTER, MA - September 14, 2021—"Family” is an important word for BlueHive Group and its affiliate brands. As a private, family-owned corporation, BlueHive Group treats every staff member as family; nowhere is this truer than at the award-winning exhibit house that started it all, BlueHive Exhibits. It’s no surprise, then, that as BlueHive Exhibits closes in on its seventeenth year, the next generation of family is poised to take the helm of the Group. BlueHive is thrilled to announce the promotion of Caitlyn Correia to President of BlueHive Group and BlueHive Exhibits.

As the third generation of a professional trade show family, Caitlyn Correia has been in the industry all her life. Correia was first exposed to the exhibit industry at a young age and continued to learn about and work in the family company during summer vacations. A graduate of Endicott College with a BS in Sports Management and an MBA, she officially joined BlueHive Exhibits in 2013 to pursue her passions for working with people and brands and bringing conceptual ideas and design to life with tangible experiences and events.

During her years at BlueHive, Correia has held a position in almost every department of the company; from the shop where exhibits and event structures are built, to accounting, account management and client services, and marketing. These roles submerged her in the day-to-day operations of the trade show world and the marketing industry, readying her for her current role as President of BlueHive Group and BlueHive Exhibits.

As President, Correia oversees the daily operations of the entire BlueHive Group organization and affiliate brands. Her responsibilities include ensuring BlueHive Group is following its mission, policies, and procedures and keeping BlueHive relevant, competitive, corporately responsible and financially responsible, as well as supporting innovation and growth in BlueHive Group services and capabilities.

“I truly enjoy walking the halls of the Hive, as we call our headquarters, keeping up with all the departments and goings-on of the Group. My passion for travel and taking in new experiences has instilled a true sense of appreciation for the events world—from the colors, unique structures, and creative displays to how loud yet controlled the noise is. There’s nothing quite like it,” says President of BlueHive Group and BlueHive Exhibits Caitlyn Correia.

She adds: “It's especially important to me in my new role to continue our family-oriented company culture and the mantra I was raised around: our employees come first, vendors come second, and clients come third. Because if we have the best people, and the best vendor relationships, our clients will be given the finest service.”

Paul Hanlon, previously President and CEO of BlueHive Group and BlueHive Exhibits will continue in his role as CEO for the companies.

BlueHive Group Launches a New Brand: Bee Ready Graphics

Focused on taking the sting out of graphic design and production services

WORCESTER, MA - July 27, 2021—BlueHive Group proudly announces the newest affiliate brand to its growing group of companies: Bee Ready Graphics. Established to serve the immediate graphic design and graphic production needs of Worcester County businesses looking for quality signage that lasts, Bee Ready Graphics is led by seasoned experts with backgrounds in exhibit and event graphic production, and its people offer an unmatched level of skill because of the demanding nature of the industry they hail from.

The mission of Bee Ready Graphics is simple: To provide affordable high-quality marketing and promotional graphics and graphic production to Worcester County area businesses.

The brand aims to bring joy and a sense of light-heartedness to its customers—and to their customers—through the sign solutions it creates. Moreover, Bee Ready Graphics also focuses on affordability as well as quality in the materials sourced and the graphic production services provided for promotional displays, banners and visual signs. This is because the people of Bee Ready Graphics know there is no one-size-fits-all model to creating signage that is meaningful and impactful to a brand’s customers, but not their budget.

“Our key aims are to serve businesses of all sizes in Worcester and the surrounding area, providing quality over quantity where it matters, and working with an emphasis on value,” says Director of Graphic Design & Production of Bee Ready Graphics Dave O’Connor. “Whether it’s design, fabrication or installation of graphics and promotional signage, we aim to be affordable and approachable. No graphic request is off the table.”

Bee Ready Graphics offers a range of promotional signage and graphics, from retail point-of-purchase including in-store displays, magnetic wall graphics, retail signage and banners and window graphics, to building and vehicle signage such as channel letters, wayfinding and ADA/safety signage, temporary exterior banners and posters, large format banners, and vehicle lettering, magnetic signs and full graphic wraps. The brand can also create and install wall, window and floor graphics, ceiling tile graphics, frosted, imaged, privacy and light-blocking window graphics, as well as event displays including hard wall, pop-up and tabletop displays, banner stands, backlit graphics and table drapes.

“The mission of BlueHive Group is to help brands grow and thrive. We recognized a need in the area for an affordable solution to high-quality graphics that last, and an approach to fabricating exceptionally creative signage that’s driven by a focus on quality work and a meticulous attention to detail,” explains President/CEO of BlueHive Group Paul Hanlon. “I am thrilled for the opportunities this new brand will especially bring to small- and medium-sized businesses to help them stand out and shine through to their customers.”

BlueHive Exhibits Launches New Rental Solution Designed for Safety

The beeONE complete rental solution is designed to address fiscal and health safety concerns for companies restarting their face-to-face marketing efforts in 2021

 

WORCESTER, MA - January 26, 2021—With COVID-19 vaccines being distributed across the globe, it seems a weight is lifting off the chest of the events industry. Event professionals are certainly not breathing easy yet, but perhaps have at least been able to take their first deep breath as they plan for the year ahead. Nowhere is this truer than at BlueHive Exhibits, where an all-new complete rental solution has just been launched to help companies safely return to face-to-face marketing efforts.

Instead of continuing to pivot event strategies, BlueHive is thrilled to take a new step forward as it helps businesses prepare for the return of large-scale, in-person events and trade shows.

BlueHive has launched beeONE, a turnkey rental exhibit program that’s designed with fiscal intelligence in mind to be an affordable and low-risk solution for companies returning to domestic face-to-face marketing events this year.

Key Features of beeONE: 

  • One cost, one payment
  • No multi-show/event requirements
  • Complete custom rental exhibit program including design, graphics, production, logistics, onsite labor, show/event services management, and virtual tie-in
  • Custom rental exhibit designs address social distancing and other health safety standards for both exhibit staff and visitors

Inclusive of beeONE at no additional cost is BlueHive’s proprietary CTRL+ALT+SPACE virtual platform, so companies can get back into the in-person events game without worrying about how they’ll engage with virtual attendees. Providing this service also means companies are prepared to exhibit even if their event or trade show changes to 100% virtual at the last minute, helping them to further save on event marketing costs.

“I am proud of my team and the development of beeONE. The concept is designed to provide one complete custom rental exhibit solution that helps our clients to move forward creatively and with fiscal intelligence. Ultimately, we want to provide our clients with peace of mind,” says President/CEO of BlueHive Exhibits Paul Hanlon.

Event professionals interested in setting up their no-obligation consultation to learn more about beeONE complete rental solutions should contact Senior Vice President of BlueHive Exhibits Lennie Metcalf at: lmetcalf@blue-hive.com.

BlueHive Group Announces a New Division, LIME I&D Services

Delivering On-Site Labor Services for Customers Nationwide

WORCESTER, MA - October 5, 2020—BlueHive Group, the parent company established by award-winning trade show exhibit firm BlueHive Exhibits, proudly announces the newest addition to its group of companies: Lime I&D Services. Leading this new company is Bill Watson, a highly skilled trade show and events operations manager with over 30 years’ experience.

Lime I&D was born from the kitchens of BlueHive, which was looking to add zest to its flavorful offering of exhibit design, build, and trade show management services. As a BlueHive Group affiliate, Lime I&D offers a level of service above and beyond other installation and dismantle management companies, providing BlueHive clients with more control over the quality of their event environment, because of the seasoned experience of its leaders in trade show exhibit design and build.

One such leader is newly appointed VP, Labor Operations Bill Watson. Watson provides a unique perspective to the I&D sector because of his roles in both the client side as well as the labor house side of the industry, a sweet complement to the end-to-end brand management solutions provided by the BlueHive Group. Prior to joining Lime, his last 20 years have been spent with Nth Degree in a variety of rolls and locations—from City Rep in Boston to Assistant Manager in Chicago, to leading the Computer and Communications Industry team. Watson’s attention to detail and penchant for stellar customer service led him to maintain the role of City Manager in Boston for the past 15 years.

“Our goal at BlueHive Group has always been to provide outstanding, quality service and brand consistency to our clients. It was a natural next step to add installation and dismantling services to our model of complete, end-to-end brand management solutions we offer,” explains President/CEO of BlueHive Group Paul Hanlon. “I am particularly excited to have a leader with so much experience as Bill Watson to run this arm of the Group.”

Lime I&D focuses on providing stellar service, from the moment a client’s request for installation and/or dismantling labor comes in, until the final post-show review meeting. Especially for clients whose exhibits are designed and built by BlueHive, the Lime team is so close to the development and manufacturing of the structure itself that they can seamlessly instruct any party involved, through every panel and fabric layer, down to the last graphic and finishing touches. Lime’s approach to service levels extends beyond its own elite group of project managers to the laborers it contracts with; only working with labor talent that the team has vetted and have maintained relationships with, so there are no unknowns and no surprises.

“Providing our own exclusive labor force to serve BlueHive clients seems a natural extension to the type of comprehensive service and the attention to detail that makes BlueHive so well-known. It brings all phases of design and build through I&D services together under one team, truly helping businesses thrive,” adds Watson.
