Megan Tanel, senior vice president exhibitions and events of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), has earned Industry Icon honors from the Trade Show News Network (TSNN).

“This terrific honor comes as no surprise to me, our team at AEM or anyone in the trade show industry who has worked with Megan. She is truly a trailblazer in so many ways and an example of how that 'can do' attitude and strategic vision can continue to innovate and evolve our events to achieve remarkable success year after year,” said AEM President Dennis Slater.

“I am beyond humbled to be receiving the TSNN Industry Icon Award,” Tanel said. “I look to each day to continue to learn more about myself and how I can continue to improve and be relevant while advocating for my members, our services and events in general. I am thankful for the opportunities I've had and continue to have at work and at home.”

Tanel is responsible for overseeing AEM trade shows and show partnerships, U.S. and globally, and event education/meeting programs. Her 20 years-plus career with AEM includes show director of the Association's ConExpo-Con/AGG, ICUEE-The Demo Expo and World of Asphalt exhibitions. She also is a member of AEM's senior leadership team.

Tanel will be celebrated for her achievements during the 2018 TSNN Awards gala in August in Louisville.

“TSNN is proud to honor Megan; she is an absolute powerhouse in our industry, not only for all of her success at AEM, but also for the many ways she continues to give back,” said TSNN/Tarsus Media President Rachel Wimberly. TSNN is the online information resource of the exhibitions and events industry.

Tanel is a past chair of the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) and has served on its board of directors since 2010. She received the IAEE Woman of Achievement Award and IAEE Distinguished Service Award in 2017, and has been recognized with numerous trade show honors from leading industry media.
