MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – (December 1, 2014) – Kingston Plantation, an oceanfront resort in Myrtle Beach, received its 14th Pinnacle Award from Successful Meetings magazine. The resort is one of only two Myrtle Beach conference facilities to earn the award.

The awards are considered one of the most prestigious recognitions in the meetings and conventions industry. The 2014 Pinnacle Awards recognize excellence by identifying the convention and visitor bureaus, hotels and conference centers that set the standard for others to follow.

The annual Pinnacle Awards are based on surveys from meeting and convention planners across the country. The survey asks respondents to select sites and destinations based on quality and services. Awarded hotel properties are selected based on meeting space, room design, audio visual services, flexible food and beverage scheduling and quality, and overall package pricing. The Pinnacle Awards have been in existence since 1984.

“It’s clear we have an award-winning resort,” says Bob Barenberg, managing director of Kingston Resorts. “These awards are particularly important to us since they are based on actual experiences by the top professionals in our field.”
