Comeback Awards


Comeback Awards

Comeback Awards (incredibly resilient trade shows were honored...) 

The long awaited time came to celebrate trade show success and stand out comeback stories...

TSNN had the honor of awarding "stand out" shows - who against all odds dug deep and came back in truly amazing ways! They made us proud to be included in the community of #eventprofs...

Although there were many events that "wowed" us, the winning shows demonstrated outstanding adaptability and left us in "awe" with their overall achievements.

The overall WINNERS in each category were revealed onstage during the 2022 TSNN Awards Gala Nov. 9 at Caesars Forum!
