Thousands of industry professionals have already voted — so don’t miss your opportunity to help select this year’s winners.

The 6th Annual Stella Awards (#StellaAwards2022), 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 16 categories and six different regions worldwide.

“Voters will be recognizing the organizations who, two years ago, anticipated where meeting and event organizers are now,” says Shalise DeMott, Vice President of Sales for Northstar Meetings Group. “These suppliers are better positioned to support planners’ unique needs, and they are also better positioned to win new business and grow market share.”

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.

Finalists will be determined by total votes during this period. Winners will be selected by a panel of meetings industry experts. Winners will be announced on Nov. 3, 2022, and will be featured in in our Meeting News daily newsletter, online at, and in the November 2022 issue of Meetings & Conventions. 

Now is the time to honor the achievements of your hardworking partners. To support your favorite hotels and suppliers, vote now!
