Chicago — Due to overwhelming demand, the deadline for Trade Show Executive’s Gold Gala entries has been extended to August 31. Honorees will gather at TSE’s Gold Grand Awards Sept. 27-29 at the Ritz-Carton Half Moon Bay on the coast of Northern California.

“We’re thrilled that so many trade show industry leaders want to spotlight the phenomenal accomplishments of their colleagues by nominating them for this prestigious award,” said TSE Publisher and Editor Gabrielle Weiss. “We can’t wait to see everyone in September.” 

The nomination form is available at https://www.tsegold100.com/nominate

Shows of any size, not just the heavyweights that make up the Gold 100, are eligible for the Gold Grand Awards crystal trophies. Shows are also eligible for consideration in multiple award categories.

Some of the award categories reflect the overall size of a show, but there are also awards that give much deserved high-fives for innovative ideas, flawless execution and forward-looking strategies. 

“The Gold 100 isn’t all about the largest shows,” said TSE Vice President of Events Diane Bjorklund. “Good things often come with small exhibit halls, and those shows certainly deserve kudos from the entire industry.”
