Presented by the Event Service Professionals Association

This award recognizes Event Service Professionals from CVBs, Convention Centers, Hotels and Conference Centers who have demonstrated leadership in 2020 and have been proactive and positive in the face of adversity. With the many obstacles that COVID has presented this year, these individuals took the lead to keep the well-being of our industry or of their own community top of mind. 

To be nominated for this award, a person would have demonstrated leadership in helping to shape their own organization in the response to COVID, initiated community services that impacted local charities, or demonstrated leadership in our industry either through ESPA or other professional organization initiatives.   These individuals have a positive, can-do attitude that impacted others, or our industry, in a meaningful way.
