BizBash, North America’s number one resource for event industry trends, ideas and inspiration, announced its “Top 500 People in Events,” and this year, one of our very own Rhode Islanders has made it on the list. Rick Simone, the president of EGN Consulting and the founder, past president and director of strategic partnerships for International Live Events Association Rhode Island Chapter (ILEA) was honored in the Events Management category.

Rick has managed music festivals, wine and food festivals, trade shows, conventions, political events, speaking series and brand launches all over the state. A founding member and past president of ILEA, his members’ skills, expertise and experience have powered some of the most influential live events not only in our local community, but around the world.

“Over many many years, I have literally worked alongside thousands of event professionals throughout the world,” says Simone in a recent press release sent by the ILEA. “From planners, event designers, caterers, entertainment, transportation and venues, they have all helped me grow, learn and ultimately become a better professional. I’m truly honored to be selected and recognized by BizBash to join this list of Top 500 People in Events.”

Simone is well-known, and well-loved, by the Rhode Island community and we extend our congratulations to him for being recognized with such momentous award.
