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!"
