Nominate Your Thriving Show for the TSE Fastest 50


CHICAGOThe selection process for the prestigious Trade Show Executive (TSE) Fastest 50 awards is underway. Nominations are being accepted through December 30. 

The Fastest 50 honors the exhibitions that posted the most-impressive growth rates during the previous year in exhibit space, attendance, and number of exhibitors. Shows must have a minimum of 15,000 net square feet of paid exhibit space for both years under review.  

Applications for this edition are open to trade shows that took place in person in the U.S. in 2022. Annual shows will be evaluated on percentage of growth from 2021 to 2022. If the show did not take place in person in 2021, the show will be evaluated on percentage of growth from the last in-person edition to 2022. Biennial, triennial, and quadrennial shows will also be considered. 

If your 2022 show grew in any of the three metric categories measured, submit your entry by the December 30 deadline. You can access the entry form and additional qualification criteria at 

The Fastest 50 winners will be honored guests at the TSE Fastest 50 Awards & Summit May 1-3 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. This celebratory event features an executive-level summit, rewarding networking activities, and the traditional Fastest 50 Gala saluting the exceptional shows that outpaced all the others. Keep watching the TSE website ( for further announcements regarding this dynamic event. 

The Fastest 50 includes shows from all industry sectors and in a full range of sizes. Those that do not crack the Fastest 50 roster will still be considered for the TSE Next 50, which includes shows that are hot on the heels of the top 50.  

Make sure your fast-growing show receives the recognition it deserves by sending in your entry!
