Visit Salt Lake Again Honored with Prestigious Industry Awards

Published: 09/26/2013

Salt Lake City (September 2013)—Visit Salt Lake (VSL) has again been presented two prestigious industry awards: Successful Meetings’ 2013 Pinnacle Award and Meetings & Conventions’ Gold Service Award—the 19th time VSL has been honored with this particular award. Each award was voted on by the readers of the respective publications, meeting professionals responsible for booking hundreds of thousands of meetings and conventions nationwide.


"Receiving recognition from the readers of these esteemed industry publications is truly an honor," commented Scott Beck, VSL president & CEO. "Having been honored with these awards truly demonstrates the level of service our staff and our hospitality partners are committed to offering all incoming meeting and convention groups."


Service remains the cornerstone of VSL, offering a truly superior level of customer and client satisfaction within the industry. Post-convention surveys consistently rate VSL’s Services Department very high, receiving rave reviews from meeting planners.


"The dedicated professionals at Visit Salt Lake were incredible to work with. They went above and beyond to ensure that our staff, our attendees, and our exhibitors had a positive experience both at the Salt Palace Convention Center and in the city,” said Bob Ruggiero, Director of Publications & Public Information at Quilts,Inc. which will host its third annual meeting in Salt Lake in 2016.


Visit Salt Lake is a private, non-profit corporation responsible for the promotion of Salt Lake as a convention and travel destination. In partnership with Salt Lake County, Visit Salt Lake’s mission is to improve the area economy by attracting and providing support to conventions, leisure travelers and visitors while being a leader in environmental responsibility. Salt Lake is a unique fusion of metropolitan city and quaint mountain town; the towering Wasatch Mountains that embrace Salt Lake offer a dramatic backdrop to the vibrancy and activities of downtown.
