We’re thrilled to be a winner, as being acknowledged with a Stella Award is a seal of excellence, signifying that we help deliver an exceptional meetings experience.
The Stella Awards honor excellence in the meetings industry. The program distinguishes suppliers from around the globe that consistently deliver quality service and innovation to meeting and event professionals. Winners include the very best hotels, convention centers, conference centers, convention and visitor bureaus, destination marketing organizations, destination management companies, airlines and cruise lines.
Winners were recognized for achieving overall excellence, superb food and beverage, professionalism of staff, technology innovations, and other critical aspects of the meetings and event experience.
This year, nearly 10,000 votes were cast from around the world for the 508 destinations, hotels and service providers nominated in 18 categories in six regions in the United States and worldwide. There were a total of 278 total winners and finalists for 2019.
After nominations closed in April 2019, finalists in each category were determined by meeting planners during an open voting period during which nearly 10,000 unique votes were tallied. Winners were then selected by an expert panel of judges overseen by the editors of Northstar Meetings Group’s leading brands, Meetings & Conventions and Successful Meetings.
”Congratulations to this year’s winners for being recognized by such a broad community of planners, and then by our judges. They set a standard all suppliers in our industry seek to achieve,” said Loren Edelstein, vice president and content director for Northstar Meetings Group. “A Stella Award is the finest symbol of excellence for suppliers in the meetings industry.”
“The real value of the Stellas is not just to those who are being recognized for their excellence, but to the tens of thousands of other planners who look to their peers for recommendations and advice,” said David Blansfield, executive vice president and group publisher, Northstar Meetings Group. “The Stellas provide an objective, curated and credible majority view on the best of the best in the meetings industry.”
