thank you to our host: sonesta gwinnett place - atlanta


GULF SHORES, Ala. (Oct. 15, 2019)— It is with honor that the publishers and editors of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resource for planning events in the South, present Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta with a 2019 Readers’ Choice Award.

ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Senior Editor Marcia Bradford. “The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South. These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have contributed in determining that Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta is among 337 convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive this year’s Readers’ Choice Award. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated sites are then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best. With over 7,000 voters participating in the selection process and the highest social media interaction to date, this has been the most successful and engaging year yet!
