Sugarloaf Conferences named ‘Best of the East’ by Readers of National Publication

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine -In a poll of more than 55,000 conference and event planning professionals conducted by Meetings Focus magazine, Sugarloaf was named 'Best of the East' among all other meeting and conference destinations in the region. It's the second time the resort has been honored with this distinction.

Each year Meetings Focus, a top trade magazine catering to the multi-billion dollar corporate meetings industry in the United States, polls its readers to determine the best hotels and resorts for meetings and events in North America.  

The title "Best of the East" is awarded to the property that receives the most reader votes for excellence within the Eastern United States and Canada. The various hotels and resorts are judged on the quality of meeting space, guest rooms, guest service and amenities, food and beverage service, recreational facilities and activities, the efficiency and helpfulness of the resort's staff, and the overall value of the experience.  

"We're honored to have earned the 'Best of the East' title by Meetings Focus readers," said Leah Stevens, Sugarloaf's Director of Sales. "Our full-service event operations team works tirelessly to meet the needs of meetings planners for groups big or small."  

With more than 18 function rooms that comprise 28,000 square feet of meeting and exhibit space, Sugarloaf's Conference Center is one of the largest in the state of Maine.  

Sugarloaf hosts an average of 50 corporate events annually, which include legal professionals, accounting and tax agencies, insurance representatives, energy and sustainability advocates, forest and paper corporations, construction companies, medical groups, government agencies, as well as other various associations.  

Meetings Focus Magazine is the leading content provider for meeting professionals across North America who book meetings, conferences, conventions, incentives and events throughout the United States, Caribbean, Mexico, and Canada.
