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 previous 12 months.

Choices were based on each property's guest room quality, meeting rooms, catering and convention services, and audiovisual/technical support.

Congratulations to our winners! Look for the M&D medallions in Medical Meetings' Annual Facilities Guide, published each May, and for a directory of winners--as well as ballots for the 1999 competition--in the January/February 1999 issue.
