The 2009 Premiere Zone featured 22 new products and services introduced to the industry over the last year. A panel of industry judges reviewed all entries, and their votes were tallied along with the votes of all show attendees to determine the 2009 Breakthrough Award winners. The award was presented at the TS2 conference and exhibition which took place July 20 through Thursday, July 23 at McCormick Place West in Chicago, IL.

This is the second award that the Trade Show Planning and Measurement Tool has earned. In June, the tool earned the 2009 Innovation Award from Trade Show Executive magazine.

“We are honored to have been awarded first place for the Trade Show Planning and Measurement Tool from TS2,” commented Exhibit Survey’s CEO and president Jonathan “Skip” Cox. “We believe this planning tool can offer tremendous business improvement and save valuable time for all event marketers.”

“It is gratifying to be recognized by TS2 as we strive to provide high-level trade show measurement and business justification through the Trade Show Planning and Measurement Tool,” said Ed Jones, president, Constellation Communication Corp. “It is very exciting to have received two awards for this ground-breaking tool.”

The Trade Show Planning and Measurement Tool (TSPM) utilizes a consistent, proven structure for setting meaningful, measurable objectives, and reporting results that lead to improved Return on Investment (ROI) and Return on Objectives (ROO). Users will establish a database of all trade show results and rankings that can be accessed by team members at any time for collaboration, immediate adjustments, or quickly producing pre-designed planning documents, event calendars, and reports. Utilizing a combination of the tool’s results-tracking and forecasting capability, an annual budget can also be easily produced.

“The fact that the Trade Show Planning and Measurement Tool was voted the 2009 TS2 Breakthrough Award winner is a testament to the importance of measurement, especially in today’s economy, for exhibit and event professionals,” commented Shauna Peters, marketing manager, National Trade Productions. “We congratulate Exhibit Surveys and Constellation Communication for this significant achievement.”

For smaller companies participating in a limited number of trade shows or exhibitions, a lower cost, self-paced version is available. For companies with multi-disciplined event teams that participate in larger events involving in-depth planning variables, a more sophisticated version of the tool is available. This version can include one hour each of pre-show and post-show planning consultations. The price is dependent on the number of trade shows, types of services, and support and training required. An annual contractor’s license and private labeling will also be available.
