Best of Show Awards


Best of Show Awards

Voting has started for our ten finalists for two final TSNN's "Best of Show" Awards!



Shows were asked to answer the following questions...  

Simply answer the following questions...

What challenge(s) did the show face? What was the “Best of Show” solution(s)? And what were the overall results and impact on the show? What innovative practices, customer service and/or networking environments occurred to make it the best show ever? For example, what tightened the attendee/exhibitor relationship? Describe how you created “WOW” experiences! Did you initiate an “out of the box” idea? If so, did it add some excitement to the show floor that created an unparalleled end-user experience? Did your event or team celebrate a milestone? (you might have some boasting to do)! Did you improve your show's "green" factor? Did your specific industry have a tough year but your team adapted and overcame? How did they accomplish that? Don't be shy - explain the overall creative strategies which would qualify your event for a “Best of Show” award! 

The 2019 TSNN Awards will be hosted by the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau and will be a 3-day celebration of not only the 50 fastest-growing trade shows in the U.S., but also the “Best of Show” top ten nominees, The Expo Group’s Show Manager of the Year award winners, TSNN Sustainability Award winner and the Industry Icon Award honoree.

The show managers from the top ten final shows have been invited to attend the 2019 TSNN Awards: Celebrating Trade Show Success for a fantastic three-day event where the final two winners of the Best of Show Awards will be named!

Vote HERE today! (Voting closes end of business 10/18, 2019)
