NYSAE announces Stuart Ruff-Lyon, CMP, DES, Vice President of Events and Exhibitions at Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS), as the Synergy Awards 2020 Meetings Professional of the Year Award winner. He will be presented and accept the award during the Synergy Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, May 13, 12 PM – 2 PM, where we will be having our annual meeting, at the Harvard Club in New York City. Eight other Synergy Awards will be presented that day.
Noting his qualifications, Stuart Ruff-Lyon leads and directs a team of professionals who manage RIMS’ global event portfolio, and oversees all event sales initiatives for attendee, exhibitor and sponsor acquisition. He currently serves as the 2020 Chair of the Board for Professional Convention Management Association’s (PCMA) Board of Directors and as an advisor to the cities of Denver, Chicago and San Francisco as well as Marriott International. His passion expands beyond the events industry and into his success as a Business Events Strategist.
“The Synergy Awards are a way for NYSAE to honor outstanding, well-respected professionals in the association industry, and we could not think of a better recipient for this foundational award,“ said Charles Riotto, Chairman of NYSAE. “Stuart has effectively challenged what it means to be a meetings professional by consistently raising the bar for each of his events and exceeding expectations.”
