Roanoke, VA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
The Sheraton Roanoke Hotel & Conference Center proudly announces it has been awarded a spot on ConventionSouth magazine’s 2014 List of the Elite 50 Conference Centers in the South. The Sheraton Roanoke Hotel & Conference Center was chosen for its unique set of features, including technology and aesthetics, and the ability to host a diverse range of meetings and events. According to ConventionSouth Associate Publisher and Editor, Marlane Bundock, “hundreds of facilities across 16 states in the South and the Caribbean were reviewed for their eligibility for the list, but the magazine strived to find locations that were a cut above the rest”.
Select conference facilities were chosen for the Elite 50 based on various factors, including technology, amenities, décor, meeting planner reviews, and recommendations. Properties were asked to complete a detailed qualification form to outline their best attributes, and magazine editors then hand-selected 50 elite conference centers to be featured in the June Issue of ConventionSouth.
