NEW BERN, NC, April, 14, 2017 — Trade Ideas, LLC, a design and marketing firm, is celebrating 10 years of providing exceptional public relations materials, event planning, web design, marketing tools, and so much more to business and organizations in New Bern and surrounding areas. 

Originally opened as a design firm focusing primarily on trade show exhibits, Trade Ideas quickly became aware of the need for print and web design services in New Bern. But it was the company’s first project—designing the History of Havelock exhibit at the Havelock Tourist & Event Center—that gave owner Shannon LuQuire the confidence to market Trade Ideas as a full-service design and marketing firm. Since then, the company has managed multiple accounts ranging from the health care industry and legal firms to education systems, business-to-business companies, non-profit organizations, and small businesses.

Trade Ideas has long offered both print and web design services, permanent exhibit design and production, SEO and social media management, and marketing consulting. Now, in this tenth year, the company is pleased announce it will add a more robust list of services to provide clients with turn-key design, marketing, and public relations solutions. These services include: Copy writing, corporate interior design, event planning, and IT services. Trade Ideas has a dedicated and creative team that is proud of the high level of services offered.

LuQuire comments, “We are incredibly excited to mark our tenth year in business with so many fantastic new offerings for our clients. Our talented team can execute every aspect imaginable when it comes to branding, marketing, promotion, and outreach. Whether you’re a small, family-owned business, a community support organization, or a multi-specialty group medical practice, we can meet all of your demands.”

In addition to expanded offerings, Trade Ideas plans to move to the second floor of the Dunn Building in downtown New Bern in May 2017. “I’ve been thinking about moving our office to a more central location for quite a while, but the timing was not right until now. The ability to move to a newly-renovated historic building just feels right,” says LuQuire. “So much of what we do is storytelling; finding that unique ‘hook’ that celebrates what makes a client special and sets them apart from their competition. That ability is one of our greatest strengths and we’re looking forward to taking our business—and our clients’ business—to the next level.”
