Online PR News – 01-September-2015 – New York, NY – Each year, millions of people clear their calendars for live experiences. BizBash, the leading resource for the event industry, is excited to announce its annual lists of the Top 100 Events in the United States and Canada. The events on the lists are disrupting the industry—breaking boundaries, creating new standards, changing the game—and proving the true power of face-to-face interactions. These influential experiences are so powerful, so transformative that even months after the event is over, the buzz continues.
"The Top 100 lists are not about excess or one-hit wonders. They are about influence, the power to build movements, form communities, and create cultural touch points for those that attend as well as those that don’t,” says Anna Sekula, BizBash editor in chief. “The events on this list illustrate why bringing people together at a live experience still matters, even in an age dominated by digital interaction.”
