In sports, the starting lineup is made of the best and brightest on the team—the ones who would be wasted sitting on the sidelines. The same is true for this year’s 40 Under 40 roster (and one on the cusp!). Our annual list of young rock stars in corporate meetings, event technology and design, as well as speakers and hospitality industry headliners, are a group of game changers. Prepare to be inspired.

About the 40 Under 40 process:
Each year, Connect Corporate highlights professionals making an early mark in the corporate meetings industry. Peers and colleagues submit nominations through our website, which then are reviewed by our editors. The editors select the final 40 honorees based on nominations, references, industry involvement, career awards, honors and other factors.
