2017 Inductees

Hall of Leaders

In baseball, it’s the Hall of Fame.

In culture and science, it’s the Nobel Prize.

In the meetings, conventions and exhibition Industry, it’s the Hall of Leaders.

  

The Hall of Leaders for three decades has been a symbol of industry excellence, achievement and inspiration, welcoming 119 pioneers into its exclusive club. The Hall represents intelligence and leadership, ideas and innovation, influencers and risk-takers, but above all it recognizes forward-thinkers who have made a difference, shaped the industry into what it is today and acted as catalyst for what’s possible tomorrow from future generations of industry professionals.  

Traditionally, Events Industry Council has honored its industry pioneers with a night of special recognition and will continue to do so- but with a new flair. Gone is the lengthy sit-down dinner of year’s past,as we strive to celebrate honorees in an environment as electric as the energy they bring to the industry.
