CORPORATE MEETINGS & INCENTIVES announces the winners of our reader-selected 2004 Paragon Awards. Hotel nominations were based on the quality of meeting services, while resorts were judged on atmosphere, services, and recreational amenities. Conference centers (which must be International Association of Conference Centers members or deemed the equivalent by our editors) were chosen based on their facilities, equipment, and meeting services. Special thanks to Bayside Inn at Sandestin, Destin, Fla., which provided a three-night vacation package for two. Julie Johnson, CMP, CMM, Lennox Industries Inc., Richardson, Texas, was selected the winner in our random ballot drawing.
