2018 Hall of Leaders & Pacesetter Award Nominations

you are invited (4)

For three decades, the Hall of Leaders has been a symbol of industry excellence, achievement and inspiration, recognizing 122 pioneers who represent intelligence and leadership, ideas and innovation, influence and risk-taking. In doing so, the Hall of Leaders has become the most prestigious honor in the meetings, conventions, exhibitions and events industry. 

As a natural extension of the Hall of Leaders, the Pacesetter Awards recognize emerging leaders and industry supporters in "real time," rather than over a lifetime.  The Pacesetter Awards recognize those whose recent accomplishments speak highly of where the industry is today and chart a course for where it is headed. Measuring individual excellence, the Pacesetter Award has three focus areas: Young Professionals, Sustainability and Social Responsibility, and Leadership and Innovation.

Do you know forward thinkers who have made a difference, shaped the industry into what it is today and whose body of achievement has influenced, inspired, and improved the industry? If so, consider nominating that person for recognition.
