Trade Show News Network is proud to honor six medical-related trade shows at the upcoming 4th Annual TSNN Awards: Celebrating Trade Show Excellence Nov. 1-3 in in Reno.

All six shows will be feted as being in the top 25 fastest-growing shows for attendance from an average taken during the years 2010-2012, which was a boon time for the overall industry.

Just a few of the winners include the AACC (American Association for Clinical Chemistry) Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo, AAOS (American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons) Annual Meeting and American Society for Healthcare Engineering - 2012 Annual Conference & Exhibition.

“All of us at J. Spargo & Associates are thrilled that the AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo is being honored as one of the top 25 fastest-growing shows,” said Kristin Gibson, vice president of J. Spargo & Associates, which produces the event.

She added, “We are honored to be a part of the TSNN awards weekend to celebrate all the top achievers in the Trade Show field!”

Besides being honored for the AAOS Annual Meeting as a fastest-growing show, Patricia Whitaker, the show’s exhibit manager, also will be feted as one of The Expo Group’s Show Manager of the Year award winners, representing Tier V, with more than 1,500 booths.

Whitaker will be one of five show managers who will take the stage as part of the SMOTY awards Nov. 2 at the Peppermill Reno during the gala celebration.

Also on stage will be the overall fastest-growing association and for-profit winners in the attendance and net square footage categories.

The weekend will kick off at the National Bowling Stadium’s Kingpin Lounge for a fun night of bowling and prizes, followed by an executive conference the next day featuring the heads of ISAEE/SISO speaking on the “State of the Industry” and a keynote by Travelocity Founder Terry Jones. The gala awards dinner is that evening, with a Parisian-themed brunch the next day at the Nevada Museum of Art to celebrate the opening of the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit that weekend.
