Relive TSE’s Gold 100 Awards & Summit on Video


Oceanside, CA – The Trade Show Executive Gold 100 Awards & Summit was a memorable event, and those who participated, as well as those who couldn’t make it to Santa Barbara September 30-October 2, can now get a look at the Gold 100 Highlight Videos

Show organizers and sponsors also showed off their musical talents — or lack thereof — in the destined-to-be-a-classic musical rendition of “No Business Like Show Business.” This event will be adapted and tweaked in the next Gold Gala with new lyrics, new singers and a surprise guest.

More than 200 top show organizers and other industry leaders spent a productive week at the Bacara Resort, Golf Club and Spa to network, celebrate, and take in a full schedule of thought-provoking sessions. The big celebration came during the Gold 100 Awards Gala night when 19 Gold Grand Awards were presented to the shows that set the bar in 2014 for size and professionalism, from the “Largest Show” to the “Marketing Genius Award” to the “Greatest Show on Earth.”

Enjoy the video recap of this year’s festivities and start making plans to attend next year’s Gold 100 Awards & Summit, which will take place September 21-23 at the 5-star Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad, CA.

Full editorial coverage of the winners, the sessions, and the networking events will be published in a special 12-page feature in the December issue of TSE.
