New York convention bureau wins US award

For the seventh year in a row, the Syracuse Convention and Visitors Bureau (SCVB) has been awarded a 2009 Successful Meetings Pinnacle Award, a symbol of excellence among meeting planners and meeting destinations.
The Pinnacle Award recognises cities that have done an outstanding job servicing their meetings, incentive travel programmes, trade shows and conventions during the previous year – and is actually voted on by Successful Meetings magazine readers, who are meeting planners, themselves.
"Congratulations to the Syracuse Convention & Visitor’s Bureau for receiving their seventh straight Successful Meetings Pinnacle Award,” said Onondaga County executive Joanie Mahoney. “This is an impressive achievement and keeps Syracuse and Onondaga County among the top locations for meeting and convention business."
Commenting on the award, Vince Alonzo, Successful Meetings' editorial director, said: “With all of the hospitality choices that meeting and event planners have these days, any property that wins a Pinnacle Award is obviously in the highest tier of quality in the hospitality field. And the best part is that it is planners themselves who are making this distinction, thus giving a credible stamp of approval that others can use when deciding where to host a meeting, incentive, convention, or trade show."
Year to date, in 2009, the SCVB has booked 34,265 room nights, resulting in an estimated economic impacts of over $40 million and counting. Plus, convention delegates spend approximately $266 a day for lodging, food, gas, shopping, and entertainment.
