If an agency can provide evidence of success delivering high-quality exhibitions in other markets then there is no reason why you shouldn't consider them in the Pitch process.  you may need to work a little harder to help them understand the nuanced approach and messaging but this can give them a laser focus and yield you something far better and more innovative.
