Chicago -- Trade Show Executive’s (TSE) annual salute to the fastest-growing trade shows in the nation returns to Chicago in 2017.

TSE Media Group is pleased to announce Chicago is the host city for the next TSE Fastest 50 Awards & Summit, which will be held April 19-21. The organizers who produced the fastest-growing shows of 2016 will convene at the downtown Hyatt Regency Chicago for a full schedule of education, networking and awards.

“We are excited and honored to once again bring the Fastest 50 Awards & Summit to Chicago, one of the global epicenters of the exhibition industry,” said TSE Vice President of Events Diane Bjorklund. “We are also excited to be working with our Title Sponsor, Choose Chicago, on creating a memorable experience for the people behind the shows that are leading the way with new ideas and record-breaking growth.”

The Fastest 50 honors the fastest-growing trade shows of 2016 in three groups: by net square feet of paid exhibit space, number of exhibiting companies and attendance.

“We are thrilled that Trade Show Executive has chosen Chicago to host the next TSE Fastest 50 Awards & Summit,” said David Whitaker, President & CEO, Choose Chicago. “We have had the privilege of hosting many on the list of the Fastest 50 here in Chicago over the years. Not only is this a chance to welcome them home but also it is a chance to expose new partners to many of the exciting developments that are happening in the city.”

This year’s Fastest 50 will once again bring together a blue-ribbon mix of trade show executives, rising stars and the industry’s top service providers in a congenial atmosphere to talk shop, swap ideas and discuss the latest trends.

“We are looking forward to hosting Trade Show Executive’s Fastest 50 Awards & Summit,” said Patrick Donelly, General Manager, Hyatt Regency Chicago. “It’s a great event recognizing great people, and we are honored to be a part of it.”
