This summer, PREVUE launched its 1st Annual Visionary Awards contest honoring members in the meeting industry who’ve created programs dedicated to environmental sustainability, social innovation, community building and other areas related to CSR. Fifty nominees in nine categories were chosen by our editorial department, which were open for voting by anyone in the meeting industry.

There are also three overall “Pillar Award” winners selected by our panel of heavyweight meeting professionals, consisting of both planners and industry executives. The awards are given to suppliers providing exceptional Return on Investment, Return on Experience and Return on Collaboration.

We are both inspired and honored to help communicate the vision that all of the nominees share. They are making a positive impact on the communities where they conduct business and they’re changing the world. Please click on the link above to read their individual stories.
