Elite 50 Conference Centers - 2014

Elite 50 Conference Centers in the South

The editors of ConventionSouth magazine, a national multimedia resource for planning events that are held within the South and Caribbean Seas region, have selected 50 conference centers for being among the “coolest” and most meetings friendly conference facilities in the South. These elite meeting and event sites will be featured in the June issue of ConventionSouth.

“The conference centers on this elite list are some of the coolest and most meetings-minded in the South,” said ConventionSouth Associate Publisher and Editor Marlane Bundock. “They each offer meeting planners and their attendees a unique set of features such as technology and aesthetics, and are able to host a diverse range of gatherings from cutting-edge business meeting to well-orchestrated social events.”
