Welcome to the CN30

The CN 30underThirty initiative recognises the industry’s exceptional talent; showcasing their achievements and rewarding their passion, creativity and brilliance that makes them the leaders of tomorrow within the conference and meetings industry. 

Every year since its launch in 2017, we unveil a list of 30 event professionals under the age of 30 who have shown exceptional tenacity, talent and a proven trajectory in conferences and meetings. They are the individuals who we believe will path the way to success in our industry, they break barriers, ignore the status quo, demonstrate passion, skill and ultimately push the industry forward. They are the rising stars.
