For the eighth year, our readers have selected their favorite hotels and resorts. This month we honor the 30 top properties with our Premium Circle Award, acknowledging their excellence as meeting venues. Insurance companies' meeting executives cast their ballots based on meeting room quality, staff, food and beverage service, convention services, guest roomquality, and audiovisual and technical support. Congratulations to all our winners, and a special round of applause to Nashville's Opryland Hotel, a winner every year since the awards' inception in 1992.
