The 3rd edition of India’s one & only awards initiative for the exhibition industry – The Exhibition Excellence Awards was held successfully on March 17, 2018 at the India Expo Mart, Gr. Noida. Over 410 exhibition professionals from across India witnessed the gala event. Organised by Exhibition Showcase, the awards have been successful in promoting the champions of Indian exhibitions as well as the overall visibility of the entire industry. The best part of EEA is that it is supported by all the leading industry associations like UFI, IAEE, IEIA,ICPB, IESA, NSIC, TCEI, PIOCCI & ASSOCHAM and this impacts the overall visibility which it is able to generate. There was larger than ever representation from pure play individual organisers, who have been successfully organising industry based tradeshows since a long time. The jury present at the event comprised of Angela Herberholz – UFI, Daniel McKinnon – IAEE, Karla Juegel – Messe Marketing, Ravinder Sethi – IEIA, Balvinder Singh Sawhney – FICCI, Dipti Pant – ASSOCHAM, J. Shankar – CII & Tarang Khosla – Exhibition Showcase. There were awards in thirty categories for exhibition organisers including three live competing categories, seven in service providers including one live category, three in conference organisers segment and two in event venues respectively. Apart from this, there was special felicitation for “5 Under 30” & “5 over Decade”. A special full page feature was published in Economic Times and the All India Exhibition Directory was also released at the event. The winners will be further glorified through the soon to be released Coffee Table Book.

Commenting on the EEA 2018, Sh. Suresh Prabhu, Hon. Minister of Commerce said, “I am very happy to note that a National level award show has been arranged to felicitate the champions of Indian exhibition industry. These awards will honor excellence in exhibitions and inspire the industry professionals by giving them their due recognition. I would like to congratulate all the winners and top nominees. My best wishes to Exhibition Showcase for organising a recognition initiative of this scale and thus contributing in the growth & upliftment of the Indian exhibition industry.”

Taking to the press, Raghav Khosla, publisher Exhibition Showcase said, “We are overwhelmed & are thankful to the entire industry for standing beside us and for understanding the purpose behind this initiative. We had a specific agenda for the first three years which has been achieved. From next edition onwards, there will be overall restructuring in the event format and very tough parameters are being formulated to qualify for an award. As this is an initiative for the industry, we are collecting feedback from the industry stakeholders and our future roadmap will be shared after due counselling with them. We will be revealing further details soon.”
