Winners were selected by meeting industry professionals and Smart Meetings magazine readers among categories that included excellence in service and amenities among meeting hotels and resorts in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Chosen specifically for the category recognizing outstanding service and exemplary standards set by convention and visitor bureaus, Cincinnati USA took home top honors.
