Oct 03, 2018

The Events Industry Council is excited to honour this year’s Pacesetter awardees at the Hall of Leaders Celebration during IMEX America in Las Vegas, NV on 16 October 2018.

This year’s inductees are emerging leaders and industry supporters who have innovation, impact, vision and leadership, among other incredible qualities that make them an invaluable part of the events industry. The three recipients were selected in different categories: Jeff Chase is receiving the Sustainability & Corporate Social Responsibility award; Zena Phillips, CMP, CPCE, is receiving the Innovation award; Jesse States, CMP, CMM, is receiving the Young Professional award.

In a new video below, the 2018 Pacesetter Award awardees share their thoughts on the honour and their contributions to the industry.

Help celebrate the new inductees at a special reception at IMEX America on 16 October 2018. There will be a reception featuring appetisers and cocktails, followed by the awards presentation. The evening will end with dessert, musing and dancing at the after party. The event will also honor the 2018 Hall of Leaders inductees.
