Nominations to Open Soon for Next TSE Trailblazers Class at Fastest 50


CHICAGO – The rising young executives who will be among the future leaders of the trade show industry will be guests of honor at this summer’s Trade Show Executive (TSE) Fastest 50 Awards & Summit.

The nominating period for the next TSE Trailblazers honorees will open soon, but it’s never too early for senior show organizers to start thinking about the best of the fresh faces in their organizations.

“The Trailblazers program is a way to recognize the new generation of leaders who are already making their mark at their show and the innovative ideas they are bringing to the trade show industry,” said TSE Publisher and Editor Gabrielle Weiss. “The Fastest 50 provides a perfect setting for them to share their ideas and also to pick up some sage advice from their colleagues who have already climbed the ladder.”

The honorees will be announced before the Fastest 50 Awards & Summit, which salutes the fastest-growing exhibitions of 2018. The event takes place June 18-20 at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City.

The four impressive members of the inaugural Trailblazers team were attendees at last year’s Fastest 50 Awards & Summit in Chicago. They took part in the discussions, the networking, and the overall celebration of the roust shows that annually make up the Fastest 50.

Trailblazers are recognized for bringing new ideas and methods to their shows while also delivering the goods in terms of making them successful. Candidates must have demonstrated ingenuity or distinguishing qualities that set them apart in making a show successful.

Nominations for 2019 will be accepted from senior show managers. Information on the nomination process will be available soon on the Fastest 50 website:
