It’s not just the places and providers that make our industry great, but also the people. Here are the seven great minds we proudly celebrate as selected by the Illinois Meetings + Events Editorial Advisory Board.


Every year, we ask you—our faithful readers—to tell us the best of the best in the Illinois meetings and events world. Your votes always result in a diverse crop of winners, from F&B to event décor to A/V and more, and this year is no exception. 

Our winners are located all over the state, from Schiller Park and Chicago to Galena and Northbrook. Some have recently opened while others are passing decades in the business. A team of five work at one company, while another has thousands of employees.
