Hall of Fame

As planning began for EAMC’s 25th Anniversary in the fall of 2004, the Board of Directors created a Hall of Fame to honor those individual’s who attended the first Conference in 1980 and supported the Conference through the early years. These individuals, as well as the past Gigi Award winners, became our inaugural Hall of Fame members at the 2005 EAMC Conference in Denver.

Each year, the EAMC Board accepts nominations for the Hall of Fame prior to the fall planning meeting. Criteria for Hall of Fame membership includes: impact in the live entertainment industry, support for the EAMC conference and influence in marketing trends.
