This Just In

Reminder: Deadline for Fastest 50 Entries is December 28


Oceanside, CA – There is still some time to make your list – and check it twice – to enter your fast-growing show in the 2016 Trade Show Executive Fastest 50 Awards & Summit. The deadline is December 28.

The Fastest 50 includes the fastest-growing trade shows of 2015 in the Big Three metrics categories of exhibit space, number of exhibitors and attendance.

The Fastest 50 Awards & Summit takes place at the landmark Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas May 25-27, just before the long Memorial Day weekend. A great lineup of speakers and networking events with that unmistakable Las Vegas style are being planned, so stay tuned to TSE for further details.

Annual and non-annual shows are invited to enter. Based on show growth so far in 2015, as documented in TSE’s Monthly Dashboard of Trade Shows, the shows with growth rates of 6% or higher have the best chance of making the Fastest 50 ranking.

“Trade Show Executive also encourages vendors to nominate their clients; we will then contact the show organizer to verify all show data,” said Carri Jensen, TSE Manager of Directories and the official number cruncher of the Fastest 50. “Your show may be one of the Top 50 growth leaders in the country, so give it the opportunity to receive the recognition it deserves by submitting your show statistics today.”
