The Greater St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau (GSCCVB) was named a Stella Awards finalist in the Midwest/Regional Best CVB/DMO category. The Stella Awards honor excellence in the meetings industry.

“The GSCCVB brand is focused on promoting sight-doing rather than simply sight-seeing,” said Lula Cassidy, executive director. “I believe one of the reasons we were selected as a finalist is because the Greater St. Charles area has so much to offer visitors. They can truly ‘See It. Do It. Live It.’ in our community.”

The Stella Awards nominees competed in 18 categories from six different regions, with nearly 300 competitors in the Midwest.

Finalists were selected by industry professionals in an open voting period, while winners were selected by a panel of judges overseen by the editors of the Northstar Meetings Group brands, Meetings & Conventions and Successful Meetings.

The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.

 

VISIT Milwaukee, the convention and visitors bureau for Milwaukee, has redefined the city’s online image for meeting planners and recruiters and captured the spirit of Milwaukee’s people, neighborhoods, events, and attractions through a new website.

“Our research reinforced that people are most interested in visiting cities that spark a passion for discovery and offer the chance to collect unique experiences,” said Megan Suardini, vice president of marketing & communications for VISIT Milwaukee.
