The Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau was awarded with a 2010 Gold Service Award from Meetings and Conventions magazine earlier this month.

"We take great pride in earning the Gold Service Award since it reflects the opinions of our customers and the quality of service they receive from our state’s meetings industry when holding business events in Hawaii," said Michael Murray, vice president of sales and marketing for the bureau’s corporate meetings and incentives division.

The HVCB earned the award based on votes submitted to M&C from meeting professionals across the U.S. High marks concerning professionalism of staff, support on hotel and site inspections, assistance with ground transportation planning, guidance on local attractions, and liaison with local vendors and service helped the bureau secure the honor.

M&C is owned by Northstar Travel Media, also the parent company of Travel Weekly.
