Once again, MeetingsNet/corporate&incentives asked readers which hotels, resorts, and conference centers had best handled their meetings and incentive programs during the past year. Properties were evaluated on the quality of their meeting services. Resorts, in addition, were judged on their atmosphere and recreational amenities. Conference centers (which must be members of the International Association of Conference Centers or deemed the equivalent by our editors) were judged on their facilities, equipment, and meetings services. Look for next year’s Paragon Award ballot in the spring.
