Visit Salt Lake Honored with Awards

Press Release

November 28, 2012

Visit Salt Lake (VSL) has been honored with numerous awards, including two prestigious industry awards: Smart Meetings’ 2012 Platinum Choice Award and Meetings & Conventions’ Gold Service Award—the 18th time VSL has been honored with this particular award. In addition, VSL was also recently named a “Bicycle Friendly Business” by the League of American Bicyclists for its efforts to promote a bicycle-friendly environment.

Each of the meeting and convention awards was voted on by the readers of the respective publications, meeting professionals responsible for booking hundreds of thousands of meetings and conventions nationwide. Due to the fact that service remains the cornerstone of VSL, offering a truly superior level of customer and client satisfaction within the industry, post-convention surveys consistently rate VSL’s Services Department very high and receive rave reviews from meeting planners.

As a Silver Award recipient as a Bicycle Friendly Business from the League of American Bicyclists, VSL joins an elite list of companies, including Apple, Burton Snowboards, Hewlitt-Packard, Microsoft, National Geographic Society, PayPal, various REI stores, Salt Lake City Bicycle Co. and Sierra Nevada Brewing.

“Receiving recognition from the readers of these esteemed meeting and convention industry publications is truly an honor and a testament to the level of service Visit Salt Lake and our hospitality partners are committed to offering,” commented Scott Beck, VSL president and CEO. “I’m equally thrilled that we were recognized as a bicycle friendly business along with a number of highly respected companies. The use and promotion of alternative transportation is critical to our organization’s goal of being good stewards of the incredible natural beauty of our destination.”
