40 Under 40 Submissions

ECN’s 40 Under 40 is for those young proteges across five different categories who bring excellence to all they do. They are to be recognized for their dedication to company, customer, facility, union and co-workers—for going above and beyond with their hard work, loyalty and dedication. We’re honoring the young men and women of the tradeshow and event industry who work as:

  • General Contractors,
  • Exhibit Managers/Tradeshow Coordinators,
  • Exhibit Designers/Producers/Builders,
  • Tradeshow and Event/Experiential Producers and
  • Vendors (in Trucking, Graphics, Floors, Lighting, Lead Retrieval, etc.)

Those selected (and the company that nominated them) will receive editorial coverage in ECN, on ECN’s website and across ECN’s social media channels, and a select few will receive a short guest spot on the Don & Mike Show Podcast!

    Step 1: Select a Category

    40 Under 40 candidates may nominate themselves – or be nominated by their employer, union, facility or by a co-worker.
