Presentation Design: your ally in trade show displays

For over 50 years, Presentation Design has specialized in designing, manufacturing and installing customized exhibition booths, helping local and international companies shine across Canada and the United States.

Born of a passion for design

After studying design at the Cégep du Vieux Montréal, Raymond Lefebvre turned his passion for applied arts and architecture into a promising career. His journey began with the Terre des Hommes exhibition, a remarkable feature of Montreal’s Expo 67.

Early in his career as a designer, Raymond took on the task of designing his first show booths himself. In 1973, he laid the foundations for what would then become a successful company: Presentation Design.

Today, with over 50 years of expertise in the exhibition industry, Raymond keeps driving the company forward, propelled by an ever-growing team, embodying his tenacity, enthusiasm and willingness to take on any challenge.

A family story

Raymond’s daughter, Laurence Lefebvre, joined the team in 2014 as a sales project manager, before officially becoming a partner in 2019. She shares his passion for the show business and a job well done, and has no shortage of ambition for Presentation Design’s future. Her background in tourism and hospitality, as well as over 10 years of experience as a manager in the event industry and solid leadership skills, make her an ideal candidate for the next generation!

Presentation Design expects to grow in 2023 with a more sustainable approach, thanks to the father-daughter close collaboration. The company’s priorities are to develop and integrate innovative new manufacturing methods that will enable Presentation Design to continue to stand out for its excellence in the exhibition sector, all while reducing its environmental footprint and optimizing customer costs.

Raymond and Laurence actively engage with the next generation, consistently embracing the future and warmly welcoming recent graduates from the Cégep du Vieux Montréal program. They understand the significance of equipping future apprentices with essential skills while instilling values of diligence, curiosity, and an unwavering passion for the trade. Recognizing that the progress of the industry hinges on their development, Raymond emphasizes its vital importance. Presentation Design demonstrates support for the next generation by annually granting scholarships to the Cégep du Vieux Montréal, fostering perseverance and nurturing the limitless passion of these emerging talents.
