Ovation Global DMC is delighted to announce that Aoife Delaney, Director of Global Sales has been honoured by the Convention Industry Council (CIC) with the prestigious Pacesetter Award 2016.

[pullquote]“CIC is excited to announce the latest exceptional class of Hall of Leaders and Pacesetter Award inductees. This event is truly a unique and extraordinary evening honouring iconic leaders and future stars,” said Karen Kotowski, CEO of the Convention Industry Council. “We look forward to celebrating their unique talents and contributions and are excited to continue to do so in collaboration with IMEX America’s growing success.”[/pullquote]

CIC created the Pacesetter Awards in 2012 to celebrate emerging leaders and industry supporters. Rather than spanning a lifetime of achievements, the Pacesetter Awards recognises individuals whose recent accomplishments chart a course for where the industry is today to where it is headed. This criteria makes Aoife an obvious choice for the Pacesetter Award – in 2017 Aoife will become Site Global’s youngest ever president.

The Pacesetter Award will be presented on October 18th during a cocktail reception and ceremony on the first evening of IMEX America 2016. This event will also see CIC induct five industry pioneers into its Hall of Leaders, amongst this group will be Aoife’s father Patrick Delaney. The Delaney dynasty is well and truly thriving.
