Hey You! You’re Great!

Apr 28, 2014

Hey you, sitting in front of your computer screen or eyes on your phone – you’re great! Really! You do awesome work, we’re proud of you, and the industry is lucky to have you.

We all know how good it feels to get compliments. And not just the generic ones, but real compliments about your work – or dare we say your passions. Those types of compliments speak volumes. And who does not love a little encouragement now and then?

This industry is full of people who are doing amazing work. There are the innovators, who’ve forged an important path for the rest of us. There are the future leaders that bring the energy, passion, and enthusiasm that is completely contagious. And there are those industry figures that’ve been around so long we hardly know what it’s like without them around.

I’m sure as we’ve described each of those types, there was at least one person that came to your mind that fits one of those categories. You have a unique opportunity to recognize their achievements, to thank them, to pay them a genuine compliment: You can nominate them for a CEDIA recognition award.

This year we have a new award to introduce.
