STAMFORD, Conn., April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Penton's The Special Event Show (TSE), the premier tradeshow and conference for event professionals, celebrated its 30th anniversary in Anaheim, CA from January 6-8, 2015. TSE is held annually and brings together the best of the events industry from around the world.
The 2015 show, which made its debut in 1985 in San Diego, took place at the Anaheim Convention Center. It featured over 100 educational sessions in 8 tracks, various workshops, showcasing events and exhibits. Based on current trends, we added two exciting education tracks--Event Technology and C Level Executives--and transformed our Wedding Galleries into the new Event Design Galleries.
"The Special Event Show has played an important role in the events industry for the past 30 years. It's very exciting, this anniversary marks a milestone. We're paving the way for the next three decades," says Show Director Tara Melingonis.
TSE 2015 hosted 9 Showcasing Events providing attendees with lots of creative ideas to take home and use for their own special events including the Opening General Session, Opening Night Party, Spotlight Event, Leadership Lunch, Event Design Galleries, Michael Cerbelli's: The Hot List 2015ä, Gala Awards, Wedding Event and the Closing Night Party. The sold-out Wedding Event for 600 event and wedding professionals was held at the Business Expo Center, providing attendees with an outside the box way to create a wedding extravaganza unlike any other.
