This awards program honors and celebrates outstanding show pro's – people that have truly shone brightly in the past two years leading an amazing virtual, hybrid and/or live event or perhaps creating a great community or found new ways to serve and engage their audiences.
Questions asked during the nomination process:
Do you know a show organizer or someone working for a show organizing company in the U.S. who went way over and above the last two years? Would you like to honor their work? Then nominate them today! They could end up celebrating their achievements at Mohegan Sun with other top trade show pro's!
Here are a few inspirational category ideas (but we are open to being dazzled by any other outstanding performances!)
Did a trade show organizer you know inspire you by with an amazing event program for all? Did a trade show team member lead in a positive way that energized others and helped a show (whether it was virtual, hybrid or in person) move forward? Did you witness a brave leader take a leap of faith and open their trade show floor (and event) in a fresh, safe way that allowed business to occur? Do you know an event leader who got creative and helped his exhibitors gain leads (virtually or otherwise?) Is there a Show Organizer who comes to mind because they demonstrated an "over and above" or "adapt and overcome" mentality you want to share? Maybe an overall industry leader comes to mind when you think of a person who helped our industry advocate? Were you WOW'ed by a virtual or hybrid experience by an association or for profit event? Did someone pull off a community building environment that helped build an industry or network? Perhaps you were blown away by a show's savvy marketing campaign that will keep you coming back for more...
We enjoyed hearing your stories about performances by a true outstanding show pro! Thanks for letting us know what made them shine!
