Salt Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau Wins Awards

MPI WEC 2009 Opening Reception at Library Square in Salt Lake City Following the successful hosting of MPI's 2009 World Education Congress, the Salt Lake Convention & Visitors Bureau (SLCVB) was again awarded two prestigious industry awards: Corporate & Incentive Travel's 2009 Distinctive Achievement Award and Meetings & Conventions' Gold Service Award-the 15th time the SLCVB has been honored with this 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, SLCVB president and CEO. "Having been honored with these awards in both good years and challenging years truly demonstrates the level of service our Bureau and our hospitality partners are committed to offering all incoming meeting and convention groups."

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

"Salt Lake's convention services team deserves every award they've won-they are on top of everything throughout the entire meeting process," said Linda Hines, Convention Manager for the American Military Surgeons of the U.S. "Not only are they incredible helpful with all the logistical issues of producing a great event, they're also truly focused on increasing meeting attendance and have great attendance promotion programs ready to implement."
