SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. – November 8, 2016 – Emerald Expositions, LLC (“Emerald”), a leading business-to-business trade show and conference producer, today announced that it was the recipient of several awards at the annual Trade Show News Network Awards banquet. Held over the final weekend of October in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the company was honored with the following awards:
- “Best in Show” – ASD Marketplace, Emerald’s largest trade show rose above four other nominees for this prestigious award. From August 23rd through September 16th, 2016, the industry voted through an extensive social media and PR campaign to decide which event deserved to be “Best of Show.” According to TSNN, the win was attributed to the fact that the ASD team developed innovative ways to execute new exhibitor and attendee acquisition tactics. Simultaneously, they reinvented their retention strategies to keep the value of their show high among customers in both groups.
- “Industry Icon” – Emerald’s President and CEO, David Loechner, was honored with the TSNN Industry Icon Award, recognizing his achievements in the trade show industry for more than 34 years. This award also signifies innovators who have a history of leading their brands to success.
- “Top 25 Fastest Growing Shows (Net Square Feet)” – Two of Emerald’s events won awards in this category, including the Sports Licensing & Tailgate Show (Las Vegas, NV), and the Imprinted Sportswear Show (Atlantic City, NV).
“Winning these awards is a testament to our team dynamics, and the great employees we have at Emerald Expositions,” said David Loechner. “I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished to date, but excited to see what the future holds for our organization as we continue to grow and hold our spot as the largest owner and operator of trade shows in North America.”
