Exhibition News Supplements EN 30 Under Thirty 2017 - Page 3

EDITOR’S LETTER The road ahead I t was a fantastic experience attending the EN Thirty Under 30 launch event and meeting this year’s thirty. What an interesting, insightful and talented group of people. Some I already know, and have already had the pleasure of working with, and some I am hugely looking forward to getting to know over the coming year. What struck me about the entries this year was not only the diversity of the nominees, who come from a range of companies, backgrounds and roles, but also their ambition. These are not people who are happy to do the bare minimum and clock off (but in events, who is?); they’re constantly striving for quality, success and innovation in every facet of their roles. The most senior fi gures in our industry inspire, challenge and motivate each other and their employees to constantly strive for better, and never settle for ‘good enough’. Today’s young talents are tomorrow’s leaders, and if this year’s Thirty Under 30 are any indication, the future of the industry is in safe hands. Over the coming year we will be getting to know the faces in this supplement a lot better, and I, for one, can’t wait to get started. 3 NICOLA MACDONALD, ACTING EDITOR nmacdonald@mashmedia.net FOUNDING PARTNERS VENUE PARTNER EVENT SPONSOR exhibitionnews.co.uk | 2017
