PCMA has identified 20 of the brightest and most talented global professionals from the next generation of business events leaders for its annual “20 in Their Twenties” class. The class of 2020 represents strategists, suppliers and destinations from the Asia Pacific region, North America and Europe.
The “20 in Their Twenties” class of 2020, supported by PCMA Foundation and Experience Columbus, will be honored at the PCMA Convening Leaders conference Jan. 5-8 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Class members are selected by a committee of veteran industry professionals and “20 in Their Twenties” alumni. Applicants were required to be full-time employees in the business events industry and no older than 29 on Jan. 8, 2020. They were also required to provide examples of industry leadership, a video statement and professional references.
“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 Meredith Rollins, PCMA’s chief community officer and executive director of the PCMA Foundation. “We continue to be impressed every year by the caliber of business events professionals we see in this generation.”
In addition to receiving a scholarship to attend Convening Leaders, PCMA’s annual signature event, “20 in Their Twenties” members also receive complimentary registration to PCMA’s EduCon event, PCMA membership and access to PCMA educational products.
