Award is the Equivalent of the Academy Award(R) in the Live Events Business

LAS VEGAS, March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- In a vote conducted by her peers in the event marketing and producing business, Lisa Tenner has been named the "Event Pro of the Year" at the 2007 EventPro Forum, just concluded in Las Vegas. The EventPro Awards, now in the their sixth year, honor excellence in live-event production and single out one individual in the live-event industry who has demonstrated a significant record of achievement during the preceding year.

Tenner has successfully married the worlds of music, entertainment, sports, pop culture, media and tourism for her clients. She was among five event professionals that were nominated for the honor which equates to the Academy Award(R) of the live-events business. Only other professionals in the industry voted via online balloting for the EventPro of the Year.

"Lisa Tenner's award of EventPro of the Year is pure recognition by the top people in the industry. This is another great example of the cream rising to the top," said Clinton Billups, conference manager.

"This is a truly great honor and I am really overwhelmed at this recognition by my colleagues in the live-event business," said Tenner. "Our clients, media and hotel partners and especially my staff deserve a share of these accolades because they helped create great events which were so successful that they will bear repeating this year. This is a great way to kick off 2007 and I believe it will put a spotlight on the exciting new events we are planning for the rest of the year. Stay tuned!"

Tenner has established a stellar reputation in branding, marketing, sponsorships, event creation, product placement, and conceptual design for a wide range of industries.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
