Tradeshow Executive's
Gold 100
Awards & Summit

September 21-23, 2022​

The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara, CA​

Welcome to Trade Show Executive’s Gold 100 Awards & Summit! The prestigious Gold 100 recognizes the top trade shows held in the U.S. and offers associations and independent show organizers an opportunity to highlight their achievements. We will gather together – in person – at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, in Santa Barbara, September 21-23, for this year’s event. 

The summit is a celebration of the winners as well as the industry’s robust recovery. Attendees will experience our award-winning content brought to life at the executive summit as our TSE editors and partners pull trending ideas from the magazine and industry-wide to bring them to the TSE stage. 

The event culminates with the traditional Gold 100 Gala saluting the trade shows that set the Gold Standard and spotlighting the exceptional shows that take home the coveted Gold 100 Grand Awards.  

We can’t wait to see you there! In the meantime, you can check out this website for videos and photos from years past at this industry-wide event and view the Gold 100 Class of 2019.
