TSE will spotlight one show in each of the categories listed below with a coveted crystal trophy on-stage at the annual event.

(Please note that Gold 100-ranked shows will be able to take photos with their plaques during the Gold 100 Gala Reception.)

The Giants Among Giants

In our quest to seek out shows that exemplify the very best, TSE’s Gold 100 Grand Awards will be open to shows of all sizes, not just the largest. Your show does not need to be ranked in the Gold 100 to be nominated for a Grand Award.

Managers who consider their shows to be in the forefront of social media, technology, marketing strategies, or any of the other categories, may enter their events regardless of whether or not they are on the Gold 100 roster. Winners will be based on how well their event’s initiatives and performance aligns with the award criteria.

Deadline for Grand Award Nominations are July 17, 2024.

Finalists for the TSE Gold 100 Grand Awards will be announced on July 29, 2024. Winners will be announced at the Gold 100 Award
Gala on September 18, 2024, at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara. Good luck to all who enter!
