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 medical meeting planners. Readers voted for the hosts that best handled their meetings or conventions in the previous 12 months, 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 ballots for the 2000 competition in the January/February 2000 issue.
