If we know one thing at Smart Meetings, it’s that you know everything. So, when it comes to the killer ballroom, the el primo rooftop and the most thought-provoking breakout, we’ll defer to your up-close-and-personal report from the front lines of in-person and hybrid gatherings.

That’s why, once again this year, we asked you and fellow meeting profs to give up your best in 31 categories, from airlines and airport hotels—across the country and the world—to hotel brands, golf resorts, conference centers—even cruise lines, because, you know, there’s never a bad time to float a new idea. Whenever you need the freshest intel for where to host your next mountain, beach, desert or at-sea meeting, just refer back to this crib sheet of our—your—2024 Smart Stars. They truly represent the best of the best.

Wishing you unforgettable, invaluable meetings.
