CHICAGO — Trade Show Executive (TSE) extended the deadline for entries to the Fastest 50 to Jan. 26, 2024. Shows that are submitted will be considered for the TSE Fastest 50 Class of 2023 and will be recognized and celebrated at the Fastest 50 Awards & Summit May 8-10, 2024.

This year’s event will take place at Resorts World Las Vegas and will offer three days filled with networking events, an exciting off-site excursion and a top-notch Education Summit. The event will be capped off by the glamorous Fastest 50 Awards Gala, where the Grand Award winners will be announced Oscars-style.

The Fastest 50 honorees will receive waived registration for two top show executives to the Fastest 50 Awards & Summit, and honored shows will be featured in the TSE Fastest 50 Directory.

TSE will determine the 50 honorees based on the percentage of growth in each of the following categories: net square feet, number of exhibiting companies and number of attendees. The 50 fastest-growing shows in each category will be announced in mid-February, along with the Next 50. The Next 50 represent the shows that were right on the heels of the top 50 ranked shows and experienced notable growth in 2023.

The trade show must have taken place in person within the U.S. in 2023, and annual shows will be evaluated on percentage growth from 2022 to 2023. If the show did not take place in 2022, it will be evaluated on percentage growth from the last in-person edition to 2023. Trade shows must have a minimum of 15,000 net square feet of paid exhibit space for both years under review, and if co-located shows are submitted as one show, the co-location must have existed for both years under review.
