Meet the Industry Influencers for 2023
Thousands of talented and passionate individuals contribute to the strength and growth of the meetings industry. Narrowing down the year’s standouts is difficult and subjective. For months prior, the Meetings & Conventions editorial team conducts research and interviews to build a list of contenders, then painstakingly whittles it down to the true standouts. The 15 leaders selected this year not only focused on their day-to-day tasks, they’re looking at the bigger picture: the near and long-term betterment of the meetings industry.

Reggie Aggarwal, CEO and founder of Cvent
