ALSD Spotlight 2023 winners take centre stage

During a highly anticipated general session at the ALSD 2023 Conference & Tradeshow which took place in Indianapolis from July 9-11, Spotlight winners were announced from this year’s nine categories.

Spotlight is ALSD’s annual contest covering venue design, experiences, and technology – collating innovative projects from across the industry and honouring those who score highest among the judging panel. It’s also a great point of reference for colleagues across the landscape to stay current on what their peers are doing.

Judges for this year’s competition included Erin Schnieders (Senior VP, Venues, NBA), Tracy Stuckrath (Founder, Culinary Concierge, thrive! meetings & events), Uma Srivastava (Executive Director, KultureCity), and Russ Simons (Chief Listening Officer, Managing Partner, Venue Solutions Group), who also hosted the announcement of the winners during the live ceremony.

ALSD International 2023 will take place at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium this October 9th and 10th. Optimising revenue through New Builds, Renovations & Service Expansions is the key focus of this industry-leading event, with architecture & design, fan experience, hospitality, premium sales & service, sustainability and technology taking centre stage.
