SO GOOD THAT WE COULDN’T IGNORE IT!
The Meetings Star Award and the Conventa tradeshow together celebrate their 10th Anniversary. In the last decade, the Meetings Star Award has gained a special status among the event awards, while the award ceremony during the Conventa tradeshow has become a tradition that will this year be raised to an even higher level through a production of an autonomous event.
We evaluate hotels and congress centres that out readers recommend to us. We focus on facilities that are oriented to congress tourism. This year we evaluated 25 new hotels and we once more evaluated 12 hotels from previous years. So far already 151 evaluations have been made all together in a form of a hidden guest which allows for a truly quality comparison. We intentionally avoid the possibility of including the online surveys as a part of the evaluation. We believe that this kind of data would reflect only the opinion of those users who would agree to get included in the survey. For this reason, we will continuously persist on the methodology of hidden visits which, according to our opinion, provide the best quality of results, and despite the fact that this kind of evaluation is time-consuming and demanding.
The starting point is more important than the competition, for through the announcement of the best we contribute to guaranteed high quality of offer and services. Meeting planners share the same expectations with us. We are glad that many of the meeting planners confirm to us how the recipients of the award are of a top-notch quality and that award actually resemble the true situation on the market. In the future, we will expand the evaluation to new destinations.
The top ten in various categories will receive special diplomas. All of the best graded hotels and congress venues, and a detailed presentation of the methodology, are introduced below.
