LightShow West Named 2017 “Fastest 50” Grand Award Winner by Trade Show Executive Magazine

ATLANTA, GA – Exponation LLC is proud to announce that one of its leading trade shows, LightShow West (LSW), has been named as one of Trade Show Executive magazine’s 2017 Fastest 50 Grand Award winners.

The Fastest 50 award recognizes the fifty fastest-growing trade shows in North America based on total net square feet of exhibit space, number of exhibitors and/or attendance growth between 2016 and 2017. Recently at the awards ceremony in Chicago, IL, secret Grand Awards were given to only eight show organizers. One of the eight Grand Awards was bestowed on LightShow West for being “The Fastest Growing Construction Show,” by blended percentage growth.

In addition to the Grand Award, LightShow West took home awards for three additional categories: The Fastest 50 on Net Square Footage Growth, The Fastest 50 for Total Number of Exhibitors, and The Next 50 for Show Attendance.

This was also DSE’s seventh Fastest 50 award, having won in 2007, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and now 2017. While LSW was recognized in 2011 as one of Expo Magazine’s Top 25 Fast Growth Shows, and in 2018 was ranked in Trade Show News Network’s Top 25 Fastest-growing Shows, this is the first Fastest 50 award for the commercial lighting event and the first time an Exponation event has been named a Grand Award winner.

Lea Tranakos, LSW’s Show Director said, “We are honored and thrilled that LightShow West 2017 received all five awards. We could not have done it without the involvement of our Los Angeles lighting agency sponsors, the hundreds of exhibitors who participated and the thousands of professionals who attended. We are grateful to the West Coast lighting community for its continual support of this event.”

LightShow West, co-located with Connected Tech Expo, is scheduled for October 17-18, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. To reserve exhibit space contact Lea Tranakos at (770) 817-5906. For more information and registration options, visit:
