Congratulations to the winners of Medical Meetings' 1995 Merit and Distinction (M&D) Awards. These 40 hotels, resorts, and conference centers were voted the top meeting venues by meeting planners representing all of the medical meeting market segments-associations and societies, hospitals, medical centers, and pharmaceutical and biomedical manufacturers.

Planners were asked to vote for the properties that did the best job of managing their meetings or conventions in the past 12 months. They took into consideration all of the amenities and services that contribute to a memorable meeting, including food and beverage service, guest room quality, meeting room quality, convention services, and audiovisual/technical support.
