BILOXI, Miss. (Sept. 23, 2014)- Beau Rivage was recently recognized as one of the best meeting hotels and resorts throughout the world by receiving Meetings & Conventions magazine’s prestigious Gold Key Award for 2014. For more than 30 years this annual award has been leading the industry recognizing the world’s finest meeting properties.
This year only 151 domestic and 17 international hotels and resorts were honored as Gold Key Award winners. Winners of this award of excellence were nominated and selected by the readers of M&C who based their votes on the property’s overall professionalism and quality. The meeting planner voters selected the winning properties based on strict criteria including attitude of meeting staff, quality of meeting rooms, quality of guest services, quality of food and beverage service, proficiency of handling reservations, availability of technical/support equipment and range of recreational facilities.
“I am so proud of our employees who helped us receive this distinguished award,” said Mike Davis, Executive Director of Sales at Beau Rivage. “Because of their efforts, Beau Rivage has established itself as a world-class destination resort.”
“Gaining the respect of M&C’s readers representing the highest level of meeting and incentive professionals – The 2014 Gold Key winners have met these tough standards through their dedication and by providing outstanding service,” said Kirk Lewis, Meetings & Conventions Publisher. “The entire M&C staff commends the properties that have demonstrated the qualities and commitment to earn the Gold Key distinction.”
MGM Resorts International’s Beau Rivage Resort & Casino is the only Mississippi Gulf Coast property to be named a 2014 Gold Key award winner. All winning hotels and resorts throughout the world will be featured in Meetings & Conventions’ Gold Awards issue published this November.
