PCMA recognized the achievements of business event professionals at the Visionary Awards ceremony on May 7. The annual celebration first began in 1987 as the PCMA Education Foundation Professional Achievement Dinner, which became known as the Visionary Awards in 2016 to celebrate inspirational leaders in the business events industry.

"In our fast-paced and demanding industry, it is important to take a breath, acknowledge and celebrate those who go the extra mile to elevate their organization and the business events industry," says Meredith Rollins, PCMA chief community officer. "The Visionary Awards, from the red carpet to the awards stage, is our way of providing special accolades to excellence in the global business meetings and events industry."

More than 1,000 professionals attend the ceremony each year, and proceeds from the event benefit the PCMA Foundation, which supports the industry and empowers students and professionals to advance in their profession.

Lifetime Achievement Honorees and Professional Excellence Award Finalists were nominated by peers for distinguished accomplishments and noteworthy contributions to the business events industry. A committee reviews the nominations and selects honorees and finalists.

"PCMA educates, inspires and listens, creating meaningful experiences where passion, purpose and commerce come together," says PCMA President and CEO, Sherrif Karamat. "Our mission is to drive social and economic progress through business events."
