Annette Meyer, meetings and events manager, American Rental Association, Moline, Ill., was delighted to hear she'd won a vacation package for two just for filling out the 2002 Inner Circle Award ballot she found in the pages of Association Meetings. “It will be so nice to go to Miami and not have to work inside a convention center or hotel!” says Meyer, of the three-night, four-day stay at the Fontaine-bleau Hilton in Miami Beach.

Every year, AM's readers can vote for their picks of hotels, convention centers, and convention and visitors bureaus that have done the best job of handling their meetings or conventions over the past 12 months. Winners of this year's Inner Circle Awards are listed on page 53. Look for the 2003 Inner Circle Award ballot in Association Meetings' upcoming February issue.
