To be a Stella Award winner means that a hotel or supplier is the best of the best, a shining star in the meetings industry. Meeting planning is a methodical process, and attention to detail is a critical factor for success. Northstar Meetings Group has brought this ethic to the Stella Awards — a competitive, yearlong nomination and evaluation process to identify and honor excellence in the meetings industry.
In 2018, nearly 10,000 votes were cast for 532 destinations, hotels and service providers in six regions across the U.S. and worldwide. Now in its third year, the Stella Awards help planners recognize the outstanding qualities and services of their supplier partners. Categories include Best Food and Beverage, Best Green Initiative, Best On-Site Support Staff and many more.
Looking for inspiration for your next meeting or incentive program? Stella Award-winning hotels, airlines, cruise lines, convention and visitor bureaus, destination management companies, conference centers and convention centers have well-deserved reputations for going above and beyond to give groups a superlative experience.
