(Alexandria, Va.)—March 6, 2018—The 2017 Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference & Expo has been recognized among the most recent class of “Fastest 50” and “Next 50” events by Trade Show Executive (TSE) magazine for its significant expansion and continued growth.
According to TSE, winners of the “Fastest 50” awards are selected annually based on the highest percentage of growth in a variety of categories, including net square feet of paid exhibit space, number of exhibiting companies, and number of attendees. The 2017 Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference & Expo was recognized as a “Fastest 50” in two categories: net square feet of space and total attendance. It was also named a “Next 50” show to watch based on its increasing participation by exhibiting companies. The awards will be presented at the TSE Fastest 50 Awards & Summit this June in Chicago.
“The Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference & Expo is ideal for senior living providers seeking solutions, information on new products and services, and meaningful relationships with leaders in the industry,” said Brad Williams, Argentum’s vice president of business development. “Last year, we introduced a number of exciting new opportunities for discovery and collaboration, leading to an increase in overall show interest. And as the industry matures and expands, we look to continued growth and service.”
In comparison to the 2016 event, the 2017 Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference & Expo included a 38% increase in new exhibitors and a 14% increase in net square feet of exhibits. Additionally, event attendance by senior living industry provider companies grew by 36%.
