“The Top 50 fastest-growing show winners were chosen by their show’s growth rate between 2012-2014 in attendance and net square footage,” said TSNN President and Editor-in-Chief Rachel Wimberly.

She added, “We are really excited to fete all of the winners for an incredible three-day weekend celebration in Atlanta.”

During the three-day weekend celebration in Atlanta, the top association and for-profit fastest-growing shows in net square footage and top association and for-profit fastest-growing shows in attendance will be celebrated during the TSNN Awards Gala, along with the overall fastest-growing show in each category.

The top 25 winners in net square growth from 2012 to 2014 cover a wide range of industries, such as retail, farming and pets.

The top 25 winners in overall attendance growth from 2012 to 2014 also are a diverse mix of industries, including trucking, labels and roofing.  

The 2015 TSNN Awards event highlights include a “State of the Industry” session Saturday morning with Brian Casey, President & CEO for The Center for Exhibition Industry Research, and Rick McConnell, immediate past-chair of the Society of Independent Show Organizers.

There are a few other sessions on tap for the conference, on tap Nov. 7 at the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart.
