Successful Meetings is seeking nominations for our annual list of the Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry. Every year, we honor the impact players who are shaping how meetings and events are run, including meeting planners, representatives of destinations/CVBs/hotels, leaders in associations or trade shows, meeting tech pioneers, and anyone else who is influencing the industry.

The list is decided through a rigorous process of outreach to industry leaders, input from previous winners, research by Successful Meetings' editorial team, and nominations from industry members. This is where you come in: We are looking for your suggestions of meeting luminaries who you believe are impacting the direction of meetings, conferences, and events. 

Which industry leaders do you pay attention to? Who is helping make the case for meetings in new and important ways? Who has caused big changes in the event landscape this year -- or is poised to do so in the years to come? 

Please submit your suggestions here and email any questions about the process to Vincent Alonzo. The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 19. We look forward to your input!
