Medical Meetings' Annual M&D Awards program honors the 40 hotels, resorts, and conference centers chosen by our readers for merit and distinction in serving the needs of planners of continuing medical education seminars and medical conventions.

Readers were asked to vote for the hosts that best handled their meetings or conventions in the past 12 months. Choices were based on each property's guest room quality, meeting rooms, catering and convention services, and audiovisual/technical support. Look for the M&D medallions in Medical Meetings' Annual Facilities Guide, and for a directory of winners in the January/February 1998 issue.
