Cacique International Limited (Cacique International) announced today that it recently won a prestigious 2018 Stella Award from Northstar Meetings Group. The Cacique team was awarded the “Best DMC – International and U.S. Territories” Award in the second year of the program. The Stella Awards, which is one of the leading international recognition programs in the meetings and events industry, honors excellence among suppliers from around the world. Winners are acknowledged for consistently providing the highest quality of service and innovation to meeting and event professionals. After nominations closed in April 2018, finalists in each category were chosen by meeting planners during an open voting period in which nearly 10,000 unique votes were tallied. Winners were then selected by an expert panel of judges overseen by the editors of Northstar Meetings Group’s leading brands, Meetings & Conventions, and Successful Meetings.
Shawn M. Sawyer, President and Creative Director of Cacique International, expressed his delight at winning the award. “Being recognized among the best in the world at what we do is truly an honor. I’m very proud of our team for constantly going the extra mile and pushing our levels of creativity beyond our clients’ imaginations. The fact that thousands of our peers around the globe voted to help us win is very humbling.” “A Stella Award is the finest symbol of excellence for suppliers in the meetings industry,” said Lori Cioffi, senior vice president, and chief content director for the Northstar Meetings Group. “Meeting planning is a methodical process, and attention to detail is a critical factor for success. We’ve brought that ethic to the Stella Awards. It’s a competitive, year-long nomination and evaluation process to identify and honor outstanding companies in our field. This year’s winners are a stellar class.”
