OCEANSIDE, Calif. – The latest group of sizzling shows that make up the Trade Show Executive (TSE) Fastest 50 has been announced, and the International LCT Show ranks in the Top 50 fastest growing for net square feet of exhibit space.

The 92 shows that set the pace for growth in three categories in 2015 will be saluted for racking up statistics and growth trends that would make any show manager proud.

“The Fastest 50 Class of 2015 once again includes a mix of established shows and up-and-coming events in nearly every industry sector, proving that face-to-face exhibitions are important assets to the business world,” said Darlene Gudea, President of Trade Show Executive Media Group. “We are looking forward to saluting the people behind these elite events in person at the Fastest 50 Awards & Summit.”

This year’s Fastest 50 Awards & Summit will take place May 25-27 at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino and will feature TSE’s usual finely tuned mix of education, socializing and networking. The Summit is being developed with the help of the new TSE Event 2016 Advisory Board, and details will be announced on the TSE web site and via the TSE E-Clips Breaking News alerts.

LCT Show Overdrive

The next International LCT Show, to be held Feb. 29-March 2 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, so far is planning for 130 exhibitors and 100 vehicles across more than 150,000 square feet of exhibit space. LCT is seeing a record-breaking year-over-year percentage increase in attendee pre-registrations. For the first time since the 2007 Show, LCT has had to reserve an overflow discounted room block for attendees at the nearby Luxor, connected to Manalay Bay by a monorail.

“Propelling off the recent news that International LCT Show was once again named one of Trade Show Executive magazine’s 2015 Fastest 50 growing trade shows, the 2016 event is already experiencing registration numbers that are soaring compared to recent years and still climbing," said Kristen Messineo, director of LCT shows and conferences. “This year’s event will be a home run, with exhibitors taking up every inch of available space, a sold-out room block at Mandalay Bay requiring the need to contract with a spill-over hotel, a number of exciting new product and vehicle unveilings and not to mention the top-notch education and networking that all attendees expect.”
