Lombard, IL – Skyline TradeTec, a full-service B2B exhibit house specializing in trade show displays and services has been named one of Inc. 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America for the fourth time. Of the companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, a mere one-in-thirteen have made the list four times. This list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—it’s independent small businesses.

Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.

Ken Buckman, Skyline TradeTec Founder and CEO commented, “It’s an honor to be on the annual Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies, and mind-blowing to be recognized for the fourth time. I am humbled as I look back at the beginning of TradeTec, and now in our 20th year I’m excited for what the future holds.”

“TradeTec has thrived over the last 20 years because we are lucky to have the top talent in the industry with a passion for trade shows,” said Troy Trice, President of TradeTec. “I am thankful to be a part of this team and love that we are still growing.”

TradeTec will be recognized at the annual Inc. 5000 event held in October in Phoenix, Arizona. For more information on Inc. and the Inc. 5000 Conference, visit http://conference.inc.com/.
