The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) was recently selected for two Trade Show Executive’s (TSE) 2016 Fastest 50 awards. TSE is a group that rates and honors the fastest growing trade shows globally. In 2016, ONS’s annual Congress was selected in the categories of Fastest Growing Shows by Net Square Feet of Exhibit Space and Fastest Growing Show by Number of Exhibiting Companies. Congress was also recognized for the TSE’s Next 50 for Fastest Growing Attendance, which is awarded to trade shows that are strong contenders for the honor in 2017. 
 
SmithBucklin, an association management company that partners with ONS to sell space to exhibitors, sponsors, and industry groups at Congress, initially nominated ONS’s annual conference for the award. 
 
“We decided to nominate Congress for this award because, as partners with ONS, we’ve seen Congress grow and expand each year from both an attendee and exhibitor standpoint,” Alexa Newman, senior manager of event services at SmithBucklin in Chicago, IL, said. “Congress gathers together oncology nurses from around the globe, and every year ONS works to offer more educational tracks, connect oncology professionals with more industry stakeholders, and offer the chance for oncology nurses to celebrate their profession on a large scale. It has been so rewarding to be a part of this growth, and we’re excited to continue to move the needle by working with ONS.” 
 
“Our volunteers, staff, and vendor partners work year-round to plan Congress and create an event to meet needs of our attendees—nurses who give their all caring for patients with cancer,” Jen Krause, ONS director of national conferences, said. “It’s such an honor to be recognized for all the effort.”
 
Each year, ONS hosts Congress to bring together oncology nurses to celebrate their profession and elevate their practice. Congress offers numerous educational opportunities and presentations on cutting-edge oncology practice, and it provides the perfect opportunity for oncology nurses to reconnect with their passion and network with their colleagues. This year’s Congress will be held from May 4–7, 2017, in Denver, CO, at the Colorado Convention Center. More details and a full schedule can be found at congress.ons.org.
