“This is a true testament to the dedication, loyalty and passion of our entire staff at the GDMCVB and all of our community and corporate partners,” said Greg Edwards, President/CEO of the GDMCVB. “Winning an award like this is humbling. It is also a strong reminder of how the Greater Des Moines community as a whole takes great care of our visitors.”
CVBs were judged on:
- Professionalism of staff
- Support on hotels and site inspections
- Assistance with ground transportation planning
- Guidance on local attractions
- Liaison with local vendors and services
Winners are selected by Meetings and Conventions readers, primarily meeting planners. This year 91 domestic and 16 international CVBs received service awards.
