Each year, Connect highlights the 40 Under 40. These individuals are event planners, sales managers, chefs, marketers and other professionals who are making an early mark in the association and specialty meetings industry. They are nominated for the annual honor by their peers and colleagues, and we want to know who you think should make this year’s list. If you know someone under the age of 40 who is already compiling an impressive list of accomplishments or has dedicated his or her time and energy to the meetings industry, nominate the person for this special honor. Nominations are due May 7.

They can be:

Influencers
Innovators

… or any superlative that doesn’t start with an “I.”
