CHICAGO – There is still time for association and independent trade show organizers to submit entries for the Trade Show Executive (TSE) Gold 100 which will recognize the largest in-person trade shows held in the U.S. in 2021.

The deadline for entries is June 17, 2022.

The prestigious Gold 100 offers show managers a way to highlight their achievements, and the entry process couldn’t be easier. Entry forms have been delivered to event organizers of the 2021 shows with the stats most likely to earn a spot on the Gold 100. Trade show winners will be determined based on the size of their exhibit floors in net square feet (nsf). We especially encourage shows with 75,000 nsf or more to enter.

The entries will be tabulated soon after the deadline, in plenty of time for Gold 100 winners to arrange travel plans. The Gold 100 winners will be honored guests at the 2022 TSE Gold 100 Awards & Summit Sept. 21-23 at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara, Calif.

The summit will be our celebration of the winners as well as the industry’s post-pandemic recovery. The event will culminate with the traditional Gold 100 Gala saluting the trade shows that set the Gold Standard and spotlighting the exceptional shows that take home the coveted Gold 100 Grand Awards. In addition, attendees will experience our award-winning content brought to life at the executive summit as our TSE editors and partners pull trending ideas from the magazine and industry-wide to bring them to the TSE stage.

Earning a spot on the Gold 100 ranking list is the best way for show managers to have their achievements recognized. The next step to earning the recognition you deserve is by taking a minute to fill out your entry form. Click here to complete your entry.
