Deadline: Sept. 9! 2022 TSNN Awards Opens for Nominations: Innovative Shows, Outstanding Show Pros
Has your show created an incredible community? Did you have a really savvy marketing campaign? Use data in a strategic way? Or roll out an amazing exhibitor program? These are just a few of the categories for the Innovation Awards, with a full list below.
Outstanding Show Pros are exactly what it sounds like - people that have truly shone brightly in the past year leading an amazing event - perhaps creating an outstanding community, culture, business model or found new ways to serve and engage their audiences.
“For many years, TSNN celebrated the top fastest-growing shows in attendance and net square footage, which doesn’t resonate anymore as a measure of success in our industry,” said TSNN President and Editor-in-Chief Rachel Wimberly.
She added, “Beginning last year and evolving even more this year, the TSNN Awards program has completely evolved to celebrate the amazing innovation that’s been in display, as well as the incredibly passionate people who have kept our industry alive and well.”
