Nominations Open for The Expo Group Show Manager of the Year (SMOTY) Awards

July 18, 2016

The tradition of recognizing individual show managers across the industry continues, as event professionals are encouraged to “Show Some Love” with a free nomination for the 2016 edition of The Expo Group Show Manager of the Year Awards.

Since 2000, the crystal obelisk has been presented to those behind-the-scenes pros creating amazing experiences within their exhibition and convention.

The awards are open to any show manager, not just clients of The Expo Group. Any individual responsible for a trade or association exhibition is eligible to win.  

“These awards began in 2000 to 'show some love' to the show managers who work tirelessly, often behind the scenes, to create amazing events," says Randy Pekowski, president and COO of The Expo Group.

He added, “These awards are and always have been about the feats of accomplishment by the nominees, regardless of their show growth or size. Together, we can recognize outstanding personal achievements in the industry and learn from each other.”

Nominations must be submitted by Sept. 8 at http://bit.ly/smotynom

Each winner receives the iconic crystal obelisk, a donation to their favorite charity and recognition industry-wide. Since 2000, almost $80,000 has been donated to various charitable organizations as a result of the SMOTY awards.

The SMOTY Awards will again be presented as part of the celebratory weekend surrounding the TSNN Awards, and winners receive complimentary full access and travel to the celebration event being held October 28-30 in Atlantic City.
