RANCHO PALOS VERDES, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - Trade Show Industry Honors Top Achievers, Brings the Future into Focus at TSE's Gold 100 Awards & Summit

Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. - The bright, California sunshine paled in comparison to the star power found in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. this September when leading trade show executives attended an intensive summit with business innovators and thought-leaders to tackle burning issues and celebrate the newest trade show superstars.

For participants, the Trade Show Executive (TSE) annual Gold 100 Awards & Summit was a unique opportunity to dialogue, debate and network at the highest level, as TSE magazine, along with 29 sponsors and seven supporting associations "pulled out all the stops" to provide an inspiring experience that would set the industry standard.

Held September 24, 2009, the Summit, which consisted of panel discussions, interviews and interactive sessions, boasted a speaker's roster of "Who's Who" in the trade show world, and addressed burning issues head-on.

Celebrating Star Performers

Trade show execs were also there to recognize the Top 100 Trade Shows and applaud the recipients of TSE's Gold Grand Awards which went to standouts in 13 categories.

The 2.3 million net square-foot CONEXPO-CON/AGG was named "Largest Show of 2008," and also received the award for "Highest Economic Impact on a Local Economy"). The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) grabbed awards for "Largest Annual Show" and "Highest Global Participation." The show also tied with Hanley Wood's Surfaces and the Radiological Society of North America's RSNA Scientific Assembly & Annual Meeting for the "At the Forefront of Technology" Award.
