Cincinnati USA CVB Honored with 2013 Platinum Choice Award
1/23/2014
The Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) has been awarded its first Platinum Choice Award by Smart Meetings magazine, a leading publication in the meetings and convention industry. The 2013 Platinum Choice Awards - a coveted industry honor, with winners selected by top meeting professionals and Smart Meetings readers - recognized 130 hotels and 50 convention and visitors bureaus across North America. The Cincinnati USA CVB was the only CVB recipient in Ohio.

Qualifications for recognition include excellence in service and amenities among meeting hotels and resorts in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean, with a specific category recognizing outstanding service and exemplary standards set by convention and visitor bureaus. The only other Ohio organization was also a Cincinnati institution - the historic Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, honored as a leading hotel destination for meetings.

"The winners represent a broad spectrum of destinations and reflect the diverse needs of meeting planners. These organizations and properties exceeded expectations and demonstrated professional standards that met the requirements of event professionals and attendees," said Marin Bright, founder and publisher of Smart Meetings magazine. "We are thrilled to honor industry leaders that celebrate innovation, exemplary service and facilities to make meetings and events extraordinary for planners and attendees."

Other recognized top 50 CVBs included renowned destination organizations throughout North America, such as the San Francisco Travel Association, Meet Hawaii, Tourism Toronto, Visit Denver, and the Las Vegas CVA. The honorees were celebrated in the December 2013 issue of Smart Meetings magazine and on www.smartmeetings.com.

"As the Cincinnati USA region enjoys unprecedented growth, the CVB team has strived to meet the growing needs of our industry partners and best represent our destination," said Dan Lincoln, president and CEO of the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau. "This award recognizes the hard work and collaboration of the entire region as we expand and improve our destination, from new hotel developments and meeting facilities to our thriving urban core. We are honored to be recognized by Smart Meetings for our 2013 achievements and look forward to being a key driver of Cincinnati's promising future."
