Everything changed the day David Silva came to the Hive. An energetic force of creative inspiration and a leader in every sense of the word, David drives originality in ideas and encourages his team to keep ahead of trends so they can anticipate—and incorporate—the next hot thing in booth design. As a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, David first focused on furniture and product design before entering the trade show industry, beginning his career in the Washington DC area designing visitor centers and museum installations for clients such as the Smithsonian Institute, Mercedes Benz, and the Atlanta Olympic Committee. For the last 25 years, David has specifically focused in trade show design, designing domestic and international exhibits with branded experiences for clients such as Microsoft, Eink, Dell, Sony, NEC, Philips Lighting, Lumenpulse Lighting, Raytheon, Millipore, FM Global, and GSMA. As first VP of Design and now Chief Creative Officer, David is responsible for managing the growth and development of the 3D exhibit design staff and event design capabilities of BlueHive. Outside the office, David’s imagination just keeps on pumping. From beautiful hand sketches to meticulously recreated Ghostbuster cosplay outfits, David Silva is a man on a mission to make the world more colorful than it was when he entered it.
