Industry Recognition: Informa Markets Continues to Lead

This year, Informa Markets has continued its growth trajectory, bolstered by strong brands who are truly market makers in the industries they serve. That growth has not gone unnoticed, with Trade Show Executive naming Informa Markets ‘Top Organiser of the Year’ at its annual Gold 100 Gala.

In addition to taking home the event’s top honours, Informa Markets’ AIA Conference on Architecture received the Fastest Growing Show award, and the February edition of our MAGIC fashion show took home the award for Largest Semi-Annual Tradeshow. In keeping with Informa Markets' increasingly digital approach, The International Surface Event (TISE) was awarded Most Extreme Results from a Social Media Campaign, thanks to their multi-platform approach.

Elsewhere, Melanie Weiner, Director of Event Operations at Informa Markets, was also named a ‘Woman to Watch’ at the event, which honours four exceptional women poised to climb the corporate ladder. The Gold 100 list honoured several other Informa Markets shows for excellence, including Natural Products Expo East and West, MAGIC February and August, and WWETT, among others.

AMR International, a global strategy consultancy specialising in the events industry, also took notice, naming Informa Markets the Top Exhibitions Organiser based on revenues for this year.

Another of Informa Markets’ fashion events, Coterie (February) has been short-listed as one of 10 finalists for Trade Show News Network’s ‘Best of Show’ award. Voting closes October 18th.

The two overall winners will be announced at the TSNN Awards, which honors the top 50 fastest-growing U.S. trade shows and is set for Nov. 15-17 in Dallas.
