MEETINGS STAR 2020

Since its inception, the Meetings Star Award (Congress Star) has become a recognisable trademark inside the meetings industry and one of the few awards based on comprehensive criteria and standards. The award is awarded by Kongres Magazine and Conventa to the best congress destinations, hotels and congress centres in New Europe.

Till this day, we have evaluated 472 hotels and 41 congress centres (181 or 35,28% of hotels and congress centres have acquired the certificate of excellence). Being placed among the best is a great achievement. Congratulations!

BEST MEETING HOTELS between VENICE and BAKU, and MUNICH and ISTANBUL

Meetings Star is a quality evaluation system which gives a simple and clear answer about the services of individual venues as it is based on the Hidden Congress Guest gradings.

In each category hotels have been classified into three sub-categories according to the number of points achieved in the hidden congress guest’s evaluation:

GOLD final score from 4.81 to 5.00
SILVER final score from 4.61 to 4.80
BRONZE final score from 4.41 to 4.60

At Kongres Magazine, we are exclusively revealing certificate recipients in the individual categories for the first time. We have certificated a total of 209 hotels and convention centres in 2020; among them, city meeting hotels made up the biggest share.

comparing the best of the best

In the name of the entire team behind Congress Star certification, I want to congratulate all hotels for being placed among the best-certified hotels in 2020. It is a testament to excellent service and confirmation of your hotel or congress product’s quality. The project continues optimistically in 2021, and as soon as conditions allow, our hidden guest assessors will start evaluating hotels once again.

“Our project is annually carried out to raise quality and to create a tool for comparing the best of the best (benchmark). When evaluating hotels, we follow an extensive and intricate methodology that has been extremely well accepted among event organisers. We carry great responsibility regarding the project. However, it is a burden we carry with ease, as the methodology is reliable and credible. Consequently, all our final marks are based on concrete arguments.”
