Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) has recognised the next generation of business events leaders in its annual ’20 in Their Twenties’.
The class of 2020 represents strategists, suppliers and destinations from the Asia Pacific region, North America and Europe.
“This group represents our industry’s future and the PCMA Foundation is dedicated to recognizing the efforts and achievements of those who want to help demonstrate the influence business events have on global economic and social transformation,” said PCMA chief community officer Meredith Rollins.
“We continue to be impressed every year by the calibre of business events professionals we see in this generation.”
The 20 in Their Twenties class of 2020, supported by PCMA Foundation and Experience Columbus, will be honoured at the PCMA Convening Leaders conference held in San Francisco in January.
In addition to receiving a scholarship to attend Convening Leaders, 20 in Their Twenties members also receive complimentary registration to PCMA’s EduCon event, PCMA membership and access to PCMA educational products.
