 The Convention Industry Council will hold its 2013 Hall of Leaders & Pacesetter Awards Gala in Las Vegas on Oct. 13, 2013, prior to the Oct. 15-17 IMEX America trade show. The event will be hosted by MGM Resorts International. "The Hall of Leaders represents intelligence and leadership, ideas and innovation, influencers and risk-takers -- the true pioneers of the industry," said Karen Kotowski, CEO of the CIC. "Just as the Hall of Leaders is the premier recognition program in the industry, IMEX America is the leader in the U.S. trade show market, so joining forces on this event was fitting."
