The PCMA Education Foundation’s new addition to this year’s Visionary Awards, held on May 2 at the Marriott Marquis Washington D.C., is the Digital Experience Strategist of the Year Award.
The Digital Experience Strategist of the Year Award recognizes digital-event pioneers — the change-makers and trendsetters of digital events. These are the professionals who transcend geographical borders, balancing event integration with engagement in either face-to-face extensions or standalone digital events.
“Meetings + Conventions Calgary is proud to support education and innovation in our industry,” said Dave Sclanders, executive director, Meetings + Conventions Calgary. “PCMA and the Digital Experience Strategists have made significant impacts to the digital event space and we are excited to celebrate their achievements. Congratulations to all of the finalists who are leading our industry forward.”
