Best of Show Awards

TSNN's 2017 “Best of Show” Award Nominations Are Open! 

Nominations close June 12 & are open to North American-based shows only. 

There is no specific criterion for the award.....(go ahead and brag!)

We ask for the following...

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 you improve your show's "green" factor? Don't be shy - explain the overall creative strategies which would qualify your event for a “Best of Show” award!

Click HERE to nominate a show today (its fast and simple!) 

The entries will be reviewed by a select panel of judges who will decide the 5 top shows. Then beginning June 19 and ending July 7 the industry will vote through an extensive social media and PR campaign which one deserves to be “Best of Show”.
The show managers from the top five shows will be invited to the 2017 TSNN Awards: Celebrating Trade Show Excellence for a fantastic three-day event where the winner will be named!
