San Diego, Calif., June 28, 2017 – AlliedPRA Founder, Patti Roscoe, CITE, along with fellow industry leaders, David Peckinpaugh, CMP, Maritz Global Events and Janet Sperstad, CMP Madison College were recognized for their achievements this week with the announcement from the Event Industry Council (EIC) that all three are being inducted into the class of 2017 Hall of Leaders at the annual Awards Gala during IMEX America on October 10th.
“The recipients this year truly reflect the best and brightest stars of the events industry, and we look forward to honoring their legacy and leadership at the Gala event this fall,” said in a statement by Karen Kotowski, CMP, CAE, CEO of the Events Industry Council. “Honoring where the events industry comes from, as well as the exciting future we have ahead of us, is what makes this award celebration so special. I am proud to be able to announce the individuals who will be in the spotlight for this event.”
According to the EIC Hall of Leaders website the award recognized professionals who have shaped the industry based on four criteria: Leaders are pioneers, innovating aspects of the industry to move it forward. Leaders are influential, and their work benefits many members of the industry. Leaders are prolific, creating programs, technique or innovations that have lasting impact. And finally leaders are altruistic, contributing to charitable efforts and the advancement of other members of the community.
Patti Roscoe called the decision to induct her into the Hall of Leaders, “a stunning honor.” She continued on stating, “Thank you to SITE and all who felt I deserve to be part of the prestigious EIC Hall of Leaders. To be recognized by one’s peers is an unparalleled honor. It became more magnified when I realized my name would be included with the current and past recipients, all industry leaders I so admire. I’ve loved my career and the PRA team that was there along the way. I share this mark of distinction with them all.”
