It's time for planners to reward the suppliers who went above and beyond pre-Covid-19, to recognize the best-of-the-best. It's a small token of appreciation to call out the suppliers who did right by you — helping you execute your most successful and inspiring meetings and events — before the industry came to a standstill two months ago. Show your support for those who supported you best!
The Stella Awards honor those hotels and suppliers who have provided exemplary service and partnership, through both boom times and challenging situations. Eligible organizations include hotels, convention centers, conference centers, airlines, cruise lines, DMO/CVBs and DMCs vying for honors in 17 categories and 6 regions. The Stella Awards celebrate overall excellence, superb food & beverage, professionalism of staff, sustainability initiatives, and other critical aspects of the meetings and event experience.
"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."
"The 2020 Stella Awards will be even more meaningful in such a challenging year," said David Blansfield, Executive Vice President and Group Publisher, Northstar Meetings Group. "This year's winners will not only have provided exemplary service, but often demonstrated unwavering support through difficult circumstances."
