Every year, our sister publications group MeetingsNet gives a shout-out to the movers and shakers who are changing the face of the meetings industry. Here's who made the list for 2016:

This year, the honor goes to some well-known faces, such as Kevin Iwamoto, “The Godfather of SMM”; Carol Krugman, whose nomination to the Convention Industry Council’s Hall of Leaders was announced since our profile was written; and Fiona Pelham, the 2016 global chair of Meeting Professionals International (read why she thinks meetings have a role in solving the Syrian refugee crisis); as well as super achievers who fly under the radar, like Tracy Petrillo, EdD, CAE, at Educause, who’s passionate about alternative credentialing and micro-learning, or Storey Pryor who’s team at Isagenix International is handling 64 events a year, up from 12 two years ago … MeetingsNet
