The Smart Women in Meetings Awards recognizes female meeting professionals in seven categories: Hall of Fame, Visionaries, Industry Leaders, Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Stellar Performers and Rising Stars, according to a statement released Monday.

All nominees are selected by their peers and colleagues and compete against hundreds of other candidates.

All winners will be featured in the March issue of Smart Meetings magazine and will be honored at the fourth annual Smart Women in Meetings Awards gala, which is scheduled to be held May 8 in Las Vegas.
