Nominations for EN 30underThirty now open

by EN

The nominations are now open for Exhibition News’ award and programme, EN 30underThirty (EN30), in partnership with Olympia London. 

The award and programme recognises excellence in young professionals in exhibition organisers. EN30 has seen successful alumni go on to illustrious careers within the industry, being responsible for sales, marketing, operations, or entire departments and organisations leading exhibitions in the UK and across the globe. This award is a seal of approval from the prestigious judges and the industry they will become the leaders.

Once awarded with the EN30 trophy, the Class of 2021 will partake in a yearlong programme including lunches, a bespoke International Confex Programme, events to tackle their industry challenges and exclusive access to EN’s events including summits, roundtables and awards.

Andrew Walmsley, EN portfolio director, said: “The EN30underThirty scheme is one we continue to build as we feel this investment isn’t just into the event on the night, but for years to come. With each wave of alumni that join the programme, we can see the tangible success that they’ve experienced in terms of career progression, and in creating real change on pertinent issues facing our community. We can’t wait to meet the next generation of industry leaders.

“As always, we are grateful for the support of our sponsors Olympia, Circdata, Hubilo, Anna Valley and ASP.”

Nigel Nathan, Olympia London managing director, said: “Olympia London is proud to be supporting the future of the events industry by sponsoring the 30 Under 30. It’s so important to celebrate the talents of young rising stars and help nurture the future leaders of our industry.”
