The B2B magazine that provides resources and ideas to planners published the list in its August/September 2015 issue. Peers in the association and specialty meetings world nominated Gallagher to the list. Nominations are received from across the country. The editorial staff then reviews and evaluates based on references, industry involvement and other resources. The list is meant to honor young leaders who have garnered respect from other industry professionals and media.
“The individuals represented in our third annual 40 Under 40 are the future of the association and specialty meetings industry,” says Chris Collinson, president/CEO, Collinson Media & Events. “They, together with colleagues and industry partners, are elevating the profession and moving it forward.”
