In pictures: The EN 30 Under 30

EW's sister publication Exhibition News recently hosted the EN 30 Under 30, an initiative in its fifth year recognising talented young eventprofs.

The 2019 launch event kicked off at Bounce in London on 19 June, bringing together the winning 30 to begin a year of industry activities.

EN editor Nicola Macdonald kicked off the event, outlining the many ways that the 30 Under 30 can get involved in the exhibition industry through contributing to the magazine, attending networking events, speaking at events such as International Confex and taking part in EN-branded events such as the EN Roundtables and EN Race Day.

Mehram Sumnay-Roots, founder of YADA Event Technology and member of the EN 30 Under 30 2018, then took to the stage to talk about her experiences from the previous year, and how being in the 30 Under 30 had helped her develop professionally and stand out from the crowd.
