Convention & Visitors Bureau Captures Top Destination Award

The Akron/Summit Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) received its 19th “Top Destination Award” from Facilities & Destinations Magazine. The annual reader poll of event and meeting planners surveyed their evaluations of destinations throughout the United States. The Akron/Summit CVB was among only forty-seven bureaus nationally to receive this year’s distinction and one of only nine from the Midwest region.
In response to the award, Gregg Mervis, Bureau President & CEO stated, “We proudly accept this honor on behalf of Summit County’s hospitality partners and for all of the 17,000+ amazing women and men who create our local industry’s workforce. In such an increasingly competitive market, we are thrilled that meeting planners are acknowledging our collective efforts to promote an affordable, accessible and engaging destination for their events.”
