The prestigious event recognizes the fastest growing trade shows held in the U.S. and offers associations and independent show organizers an opportunity to highlight their achievements. This year, the Fastest 50 Awards & Summit took place May 1-3, at the Miami Beach Convention Center. 

LDI, led by VP and Market Leader Marian Sandberg, is listed in The Fastest 50 Awards in three fastest growing categories: exhibit square footage, exhibiting companies, and total attendance. These gains reflect LDI's success at providing extraordinary business opportunities that attract exhibitors from both the largest and most innovative companies in the live entertainment industry. 

“Being named to the Trade Show Executive’s Fastest 50 for the second time is truly an honor for our entire team, especially given that our event serves the live production market and having experienced its fair share of challenges over the last few years,” says Sandberg. “Our phenomenal and passionate sales, marketing, content, and leadership staff have worked tirelessly to keep the show growing, and this accolade helps to make it all worthwhile. The LDI staff are ecstatic to have this recognition.”

LDI is not only the most important marketplace for orders, venue for product launches and demos, and social event for networking, it is the main hub for professional training in the industry with a full conference offering classes with renowned teachers. LDI is held annually at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and this year's event is expanding into the state-of-the-art West Hall, which opened at the end of 2020. LDI 2023 will take place November 30 - December 5, the Expo Hall dates are December 3 - 5, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday.

Questex CEO Paul Miller commented, "It was very gratifying to see a number of Questex events honored in the Fastest 50 and Next 50. Each of the events recognized sit squarely in the experience economy and all serve markets and communities significantly impacted by the global pandemic. In the case of LDI, the team stayed close to the community, continued to produce content and education to help businesses navigate the situation, and acted upon the feedback that the live entertainment community provided." Miller called attending LDI 2022, "A source of enormous pride, as the entire ecosystem celebrated a return to live events. The show was particularly relevant for a community that enhances live events through design and technology. Our team showed incredible resilience and they deserve the rewards, it’s a pleasure to work alongside them.”
