Posted on March 6, 2009 by LCT Magazine

Here's a press release and photo from the Association of Destination Management Executives, who just named winners at its annual conference in San Antonio. It's very good to follow news from associations in business travel, meeting planners, packaged tours, and destination management. If you were to send congrats to winners, like those named below, it's a very good marketing and networking opportunity. And if you're ever working on a lobbying effort or other big project, these relationships can come into play.
