Stella Award-Winners Showcase: Best Airline

Northstar Meetings Group is proud to present the winners of our inaugural Stella Awards, which recognize organizations worldwide that deliver the greatest possible service to meetings and events professionals. The awards celebrate critical aspects of the event experience across 18 different categories among six regions, including food and beverage, professionalism of staff, technology innovations, green initiatives and more.


Delta Air Lines (Winner)

Not all airlines are created equal — particularly when it comes to handling complicated group itineraries that span the globe. Ease of booking, in-flight amenities, quality of staff and a dedication to the meetings market have led to Delta being named Best Airline. The carrier’s group program, Delta Edge Meetings, provides access to a simple booking process, flexible pricing and valuable benefits like Priority Boarding for meeting attendees, plus the option to receive detailed reporting and back-end incentive payments.

Silver Legacy Wins Three TripAdvisor Awards

Recognized for great online reviews in service, quality, and care

Silver Legacy Resort Casino is ecstatic to announce that three of its entities received the 2015 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Sterling’s Seafood Steakhouse, Pearl Oyster Bar and Grill, and Silver Legacy’s casino were acknowledged for excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor.

For Sterling’s Seafood Steakhouse, this is the fourth year in a row the fine dining establishment has won the award and is just one of many recognitions which includes eighteen Wine Spectator Awards and OpenTable’s top 100 restaurants in the nation for “Best Service.”

“It is a great honor to be recognized for the hard work and dedication to food that Sterling’s staff so diligently provides on a nightly basis,” said Philip DeManczuk, Restaurant and Wine Director for Sterling’s. “I am proud of our team and proud to represent Silver Legacy at a time when food and wine are so important to our traveling culture.”

This is the first year that Pearl Oyster Bar and Grill and Silver Legacy’s casino have received the awards. When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period as well as business’s tenure and ranking on the Popularity Index on the site. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
