Each year, the readers of Corporate Meetings and Incentives magazine vote for the top conference centers that best handled their events during the previous year. Educated meeting professionals, who are in the market to utilize hotel services for such said events, base their nominations on the overall quality of their meetings. Food and beverage service, guest room and meeting space features, and audio visual/technical support are all factors that contribute to the overall success and are weighed in their decision process.
While all of those nominated touched an event planner in some special way, only ten are selected as the top conference centers in the United States. These leaders in the meeting industry are then presented with the coveted Paragon Award. Of those named, three of the top spots were taken by Destination Hotels and Resorts: Hamilton Park Hotel and Conference Center, The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center and Tempe Mission Palms Hotel and Conference Center. All of these properties provided the exemplary service that one would come to want and expect for their attendees. While all of our Destination sister properties couldn’t be listed as a top “conference center”, they all exemplify the top levels of service that led our clients to choose us as the frontrunners of our industry.
