Be Part of TSE History; Call for Pictures for 20th Anniversary Issue


CHICAGO – Want to contribute to our anniversary issue? Share a photo, or share a personal story about Trade Show Executive magazine in its 20th anniversary issue. We’re collecting memories from readers for our special 20th anniversary issue in July.

The July issue will go down memory lane, recalling TSE’s early days as a fledgling magazine to its evolution as a 2019 finalist for Magazine of the Year from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE).

The special Power Lunch feature will shine a light on TSE’s 20 year story with interviews from its Chairman, Rick Simon and the magazine’s President Emeritus and former Publisher and Editor Darlene Gudea. Gudea, who retired in 2017, is credited with building up the magazine’s circulation and reputation, leading to her recognition as a “Legend of the Industry” by the International Association of Exhibits and Events’ (IAEE) and we will take a look at the magazine’s future with current Publisher and Editor Gabrielle Weiss.

“We invite our readers and our supporters to contribute to this special issue by sending us a personal story or pictures related to TSE. It is our industry’s magazine and what better way to celebrate than to invite everyone to be a part of our history,” Weiss said. “We’re so proud of Trade Show Executive’s evolution these past 20 years. It’s something worth celebrating.”

So, if you have a special picture or a personal story about TSE that you’d like to share, we’d love to hear from you!
