It begins with APCG Founder Jonathan Cooper, a former New York State cycling champion who ventured to Europe to race bikes in Holland, Belgium and Luxemburg. After returning to the US and graduating from the NYU Stern School of Business, Cooper started American Pro Cycling Group (APCG) organizing circuit races in major markets throughout the US from coast to coast with Tour de France winner Greg LeMond as spokesperson.

A Passion for Creating Visual Event Impact

With Cooper’s keen interest in raising the bar with better signage and a more unified venue buildout, APCG’s focus shifted from organizing bike races to providing all sorts of events with a better visual experience for spectators, competitors and the media.

In the beginning, APCG provided only signage to such events as the Goodwill Games (Ted Turner), XFL Football League (Dick Ebersol / Vince McMahon) and the New York City Marathon (Fred Lebow).

A Sign System That Solves an Event Industry Problem

Event venues were typically built with multiple contractors providing backdrops, barricades, towers, elevated structures, and directional hardware. The need for multiple contractors created major fabrication problems for getting the signage to fit properly. Coordinating with multiple contractors was a huge time-consuming task, and the finished venue product never looked unified.

It soon became clear that inventing one modular system that incorporated all aspects of a venue buildout where signage was displayed would create continuity, result in a world-class look, and eliminate countless coordination issues among multiple suppliers.

Our Patented Sign Slide System (SSS) has also proven to be crucial for events with a 1-4 hour buildout time and no room for error. Using this modular system, we have become leaders in same-day event buildouts. For over 25 years, APCG has never missed a deadline regardless of lead time and has never had a structural failure.
