Millennial staffers named to industry watch list
The International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM) has named City of Dallas employees Joshua Hezlep and Trenton Becker to its 30 Under 30 Class of 2017. Hezlep and Becker are event coordinators at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas.
The IAVM listing acknowledges the industry’s most promising young talent and provides networking and training opportunities for those selected.
Dallas Event Excellence division manager Yldefonso Sola says choosing between the two wasn’t easy. “It was very difficult to determine which staff member to nominate,” Sola said. “I felt Josh and Trenton were each deserving because of their passion and commitment; so, I nominated them both.
Clearly the IAVM Board and selection committee agreed.”Dallas is one of only three convention centers in the nation with multiple appointments to IAVM’s 30 Under 30. It is the first time a City of Dallas employee has received the industry’s recognition.
