The Carolina Inn Receives ConventionSouth Magazine's Prestigious 2006 Readers' Choice Award
In January2006, The Carolina Inn was presented with ConventionSouth magazine's Readers' Choice Award. ConventionSouth has been the recognized leader in covering the South's meetings industry for the last 22 years.
After more than a decade of recognizing some of the most talented meeting professionals in the nation through its annual "Meeting Professionals To Watch" designation, ConventionSouth editors turned the tables by asking
meeting professionals to name the convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs), convention centers, conference centers, hotels, resorts and other meeting sites that they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalismto groups.
More than 18,500 readers were asked to cast their votes for the Readers' Choice Awards, and only the top vote getters out of approximately 2,000 meeting sites and CVBs received this recognition. Readers' comments ranged from the very simple, "really great spot for meetings" and "first-class facility," to the very detailed, with some readers even bestowing accolades to particularly outstanding staff members.
"The value in receiving this recognition is that it comes from the United States' top meeting planners who book events in the South. These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have determined that the recipients of ConventionSouth's Readers' Choice Awards do indeed display the commitment to professionalism, creativity, excellence and outstanding customer service they require," said ConventionSouth President and Publisher J. Talty O'Connor. "It is an honor to announce that The Carolina Inn was selected by these planners as one of the best in the South."
