Recognizing only 25 people who are standout contributors to the betterment of the meetings industry is a difficult task in any year. But recent goings-on have made the task particularly difficult this year. From extreme weather, to the #MeToo movement, to third-party commission restructuring, it's been a busy 12 months. That's why we're glad to have had help in putting this list together. In addition to the editors of the Northstar Meetings Group brainstorming candidates, we gather input from select industry luminaries, got opinions from last year's honorees and polled our readers to let anyone from the industry at large be part of the process.

This list is all about identifying key influencers, and we would like to thank everyone who influenced us during the creation of this list. Lastly, we would like to congratulate everyone who made the list this year.
