CHICAGO — Trade Show Executive (TSE) is accepting entries for the next class of the TSE Fastest 50 and Gold 100 rankings. The deadline for entries is Dec. 29, 2023. Submit your show today!

TSE’s Gold 100 recognizes the largest trade shows in the U.S., based on net square feet of paid exhibit space, and is open to all in-person shows. The TSE Fastest 50 honors the fastest-growing trade shows based on net square feet, number of exhibitors and number of attendees.

Honorees for the Gold 100 and Fastest 50 will be invited to their respective event, with the Fastest 50 Awards & Summit taking place May 8-10, 2024, at Resorts World Las Vegas, and the Gold 100 Awards & Summit taking place Sept. 17-19, 2024, at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara, Calif.

Each Awards & Summit includes three days full of connecting with peers, leading educational content and celebrating the honorees’ success in 2023. The events will cap off with the ever-glamourous dinner and awards gala, where the Grand Award winners will be announced Oscars-style.

Shows that have submitted complete show data for the 2023 TSE Dashboard will automatically be considered for the Fastest 50 and Gold 100. The TSE team will contact shows that submitted for the Dashboard for any missing data, but the show will not need to submit a separate entry for Fastest 50 and/or Gold 100.
