Corporate Meetings & Incentives announces the winners of its 2003 Paragon Awards. Once again we asked our readers to choose the hotels, resorts, and conference centers that did the best job of handling their meetings and incentive programs in the past year. Nominations for hotels were based on the quality of their meeting services, while resorts were judged on their overall atmosphere, services, and recreational amenities. Conference centers (which must be either International Association of Conference Centers members or deemed the equivalent by our editors) were chosen on the basis of their facilities, equipment, and meeting services.

Look for the ballot for the 2004 Paragon Awards in the July, August, and September issues of CMI.
