The Hall of Fame was launched in 2009 by Meetings + Incentive Travel Magazine and is now carried forward by CMEExpo, Canada’s largest tradeshow and conference for meeting and event professionals. Since its inception, 82 industry leaders have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The mandate of the Hall of Fame is to recognize and celebrate individuals who have made a lasting impression and impact in the Canadian events and meeting industry. It is the sole independent awards program for event and meeting professionals and suppliers in the country.
In 2023, the Hall of Fame will see updated categories, descriptions and criteria to adjust to our everchanging industry, while continuing to honor those who are continuously making a difference. Nominations are put forth by industry peers or self-nominated, shortlisted and graded on the category criteria by a select panel of past Hall of Fame winners.
