Meeting & Conventions magazine recently announced the winners of its prestigious Gold Key Award for 2010. The Westin Diplomat has been honored with this award five times. For over 30 years this annual award has been bestowed upon the world’s finest meeting properties.
All winners of this award of excellence were nominated and selected by the readers of M&C, who based their votes on the overall professionalism and quality of the property. This year, the readers honored 157 domestic and international hotels and resorts as Gold Key winners. Meeting planners selected their winning properties based on strict industry criteria including: staff attitude; quality of meeting rooms; quality of guest services; food and beverage service; proficiency of handling reservations; availability of technical/support equipment and range of recreational facilities.
“The dedication to quality has always been a trademark of M&C’s readers who represent the highest level of meeting and incentive professionals. The 2010 Gold Key winners have met these tough standards by providing outstanding service,” said Kirk Lewis, Meetings & Conventions Group Publisher. “The entire M&C staff commends the properties that have demonstrated the qualities to earn the Gold Key distinction.” Winning hotels and resorts will also be featured in Meetings & Conventions’ Gold Awards issue published this November.
