The IAVM Foundation has announced the 30|UNDER|30 Class of 2020. The program, in its sixth year, is made possible thanks to the ongoing support of Ungerboeck Software International, as well as many IAVM Foundation donors.
“The Foundation Board of Trustees, along with past award recipients, spent long hours making the selections for this latest class of winners,” stated Adina Erwin, CVE, Chair of the IAVM Foundation Board of Trustees. “We thank all the candidates for participating in the process. Congratulations to the winners! We look forward to honoring you in IAVM’s first-ever virtual celebration.”
Designed to engage the best and brightest young professionals in the venue management industry, the 30|UNDER|30 program recognizes emerging leaders – and their talents – which help accelerate the industry and carry it into the future.
“The Class of 2020 will forever be remembered for the uniqueness of the year and for their hard work and passion as they continue to carve out their paths in venue management,” stated Gina Brydson, IAVM Director of Membership and Interim Director of Development for the Foundation “Those chosen exemplify the vision and talent that will serve the future of our industry well.”
Information regarding the virtual reception honoring the class of 2020 will be announced soon.
