The CN 30 under Thirty exists to recognise and celebrate the conference and meetings industry’s top young talent. As a platform for the rising stars of the industry, the initiative highlights outstanding achievement and offers opportunities for the 30 under Thirty to learn from each other and leading industry figures.

Being a part of the CN30 alumni goes beyond just the ceremony – once you become part of the scheme, Conference News will look to you as a key influencer within the industry, and therefore an opinion that we’d cherish when it comes to new content, round table discussions, or indeed judging or various awards that we host.






Meet the Judges

We’ll be forming the judging panel for the 2021 ceremony over the next 6 months – for now, you’re more  than welcome to take a look through our panel from 2020 to gauge the level of industry figure that will view your submission.
