TSNN Excellence Awards

In this, the ‘modern era’ of events, the technological tools that power the business are important partners for success.

The second evening of Tarsus Advon’s MTO Summit, the premiere event technology event, will feature the launch of the first TSNN Event Excellence Awards.

The MTO Summit will run Nov. 9-10 at the Hilton Alexandria Hotel in Alexandria, Va., and the awards dinner will celebrate five industry awards.

The first annual TSNN Event Excellence Awards were created to celebrate the growth, innovation and achievement that exist in our industry. Every day, show organizers work to promote their events, launch new ones and better serve their attendees and exhibitors by creating amazing marketplaces for commerce.

We will celebrate success in this first year by looking at growth and achievement for one show each in the trade, association and public trade show sectors – which will be announced soon – and all shows will then be invited to submit for recognition in 2011 and beyond based on criteria being developed.

We also will present the Distinguished Leadership Award for real achievement in the industry by celebrating the work of a true icon in the business. It is those that have led the industry for many years that we applaud with this honor.

Equally important is the Technology Innovation Award that will honor the best technology that exists to support the work of the trade how industry. In this, the ‘modern era’ of events, the technological tools that power the business are important partners for success.

The evening will be emceed by Adam Schaffer, president of Media Revenue Partners and past-publisher of Tradeshow Week magazine. “The goal of the evening is to create in the industry an important event to recognize the accomplishments that occur day in and day out by the terrific people that we're all so lucky to call our colleagues,” Schaffer said.

This first TSNN Event Excellence Awards evening event will lay the foundation for weekend-long celebrations in future years – where the best and the brightest in the business will gather to network, connect and celebrate working in an industry like no other – and acknowledging and embracing the success that we have mutually achieved.

The awards dinner is part of the MTO Summit and tickets can be purchased on http://www.mtosummit.com. For a full list of speakers and sessions and more information on the two-day event, please visit the MTO Summit Web site.
