EN 30 under 30: Submit an Entry

As a platform for the rising stars of the industry, the initiative highlights outstanding achievements and offers opportunities for the EN 30's to learn from each other and leading industry figures.

Many of our EN 30 Under Thirty alumni have gone to be influential figures within our global events community. Feel free to watch the video from last year’s event to see how delighted each of the thirty winners were to receive the coveted EN 30 Under Thirty trophy!
