Readers Choice Best of Voting Ends May 19!

Have you let your favorite vendor, event planner or venue know how much you appreciate them by voting for them in our annual Northwest Meetings + Events Best of Awards? No? Well, get busy—voting ends Friday, May 19!

While we have included many of our old favorites, like best convention/conference venue and best event décor provider, this year we have some brand new categories as well, including Best Meeting and Event Planning Company and Best Winery/Brewery/Distillery with Event Space.

Only one ballot is allowed per email address, and voters must vote in at least 10 categories. Vote here. Vote now!

The nominees will be announced this summer and the winners will be announced at the annual Best of Awards Party to be held this fall (more details on the celebration to come).

These tours have all the right ingredients for a fulfilling—and filling—post-meeting activity.
