Global Events Partners (GEP) announced that five of the eleven 2012 achievement awards presented by the Association of Destination Management Executives International, were to partner DMCs of GEP.

The GEP DMCs honoured were Destination King, Memphis, two awards; Destination Nashville, Nashville; and JPdL, Toronto, two awards.

More than seventy entries were received for events presented between September 1, 2010 – August 31, 2011.

Judges included members from Meeting Professionals International (MPI), Professional Conference Managers Association (PCMA), and International Special Events Society (ISES).

Each judge reviewed applications from other venues and rated them based on originality, innovation and solutions provided to challenges presented.

The five awards were:

We congratulate Destination King, Destination Nashville, JPdL Toronto, and especially Kevin Brewer and Grant Snider on their much deserved awards,” said Chris White, Chairman and CEO of GEP.
