Watch this video to hear industry leaders and 2020 winners discuss the importance of winning a Stella Award.
Today is the last day to vote to support and celebrate the many outstanding organizations in the MICE industry worldwide! Nothing speaks to a supplier’s value to the meetings and events community than a Stella Award—and no accolade would be better-timed than one in 2021, bestowed upon winning organizations this November.
The 5th Annual Stella Awards, presented by Northstar Meetings Group's Meetings & Conventions and Successful Meetings, celebrate organizations across the globe that consistently deliver superlative service and innovation across all sectors of the industry. The Stella Awards recognize hotels, convention centers, conference centers, airlines, cruise lines, DMOs/CVBs and DMCs in 17 categories and six different regions worldwide.
By leveraging a robust judging process—and the enthusiasm meeting planners have for the destinations, hotels and other service providers who have supported them—the Stella Awards process shines a light on the truly exceptional organizations in our industry. More than just a validation of excellence, the Stella Awards boost morale for organizations during difficult circumstances as well as build awareness for many superb destinations and venues across the globe. Planners can refer with confidence to the Stella Awards winners’ list when choosing services and locations for their upcoming meetings.
The Stella Awards (#StellaAwards2021) are open for public voting until May 14, 2021. Awards finalists will be determined by total votes during this period. Winners will be determined by an expert panel of judges overseen by the editors of Northstar Meetings Group’s leading brands, Meetings & Conventions and Successful Meetings.
“As we cautiously return to the business of meeting face-to-face, planners will look for destinations, venues and other partners that they can trust to provide a best-in-class experience,” noted Loren Edelstein, Vice President and Content Director for Northstar Meetings Group. “A Stella Award provides that level of confidence. Especially now, peer-to-peer approval holds more weight than any other accolade.”
To aid 2021 nominees in getting out the vote, Northstar Meetings Group provides the Nominee Promotions Toolkit, a convenient resource providing tools, copy and creative to help bring awareness to suppliers’ achievements and prompt support across their website, email and social media channels.
