Smart Meetings Announces Winners of 2021 Catalyst Awards

Sausalito, California, Nov. 4, 2021 — Smart Meetings, the essential media resource for the event industry, is proud to announce the winners of the 2021 Catalyst Awards. This prestigious honor is the evolution of what was previously known as Supplier of the Year. It singles out the transformational meeting partners who stepped up during a challenging year to innovate, inspire and get business done.

These 41 leaders in 7 categories—Fusion Award, Amplitude Prize, Kinetic Award, Joule Award, Momentum Award, Quantum leap Award and Rising Stars—were nominated by their peers and chosen based on their responses to questions about their approach to delivering elevated hospitality and their vision for the future.

“These agents of change are helping to bring back the entire industry better,” said Marin Bright, Smart Meetings founder and CEO.

The 2021 Catalyst Award winners will be featured in the November Smart Meetings magazine.
