Plano Centre and Visit Plano Receive Top Honors

NEWS RELEASE

Plano Centre and Visit Plano Receive Top Honors

Plano, TX (November 2, 2015) Visit Plano is one of the premier providers of exemplary service and facilities to meeting professionals. And, Plano Centre is one of those attractive meetings assets delivering a superlative experience. That is the acknowledgement given by the editors and publishers of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resources for planning events in the South.

“Visit Plano and Plano Centre are honored to be recognized with this prestigious publication’s highest award,” said Visit Plano director Mark Thompson. “To once again be recognized, and by a large margin, by the meeting professionals we serve is a testament to the commitment of all our partners and properties in making Plano the place to be for meetings.”

“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Visit Plano and Plano Centre have been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Publisher J. Talty O’Connor. “The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South. These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have contributed in determining that Visit Plano and Plano Centre indeed display the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

Since creation in 2001, this is the fourth time that Visit Plano has received the award and second such honor for Plano Centre, making it an even greater honor to present the two entities with a 2015 Readers’ Choice Award.

Visit Plano and Plano Centre are among 180 convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive this year’s Readers’ Choice Award. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated sites are then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best. More than 5,000 voters participated this year in the selection process – the highest vote count ever recorded.

Visit Plano and Plano Centre will be featured as award recipients in the December 2015 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine. This exciting issue will also showcase some of the most talented meeting professionals in the nation as ConventionSouth also presents planners with its annual “Meeting Professionals To Watch” designation.

“Featuring peer advice and trade secrets from our Meeting Professionals to Watch in 2015, our Awards Issue is one of the most popular must-read resources within the meetings industry,” O’Connor said.

Celebrating over 30 years as a leading meeting planning resource, ConventionSouth magazine is based in Gulf Shores, Ala., and is distributed to more than 18,000 meeting professionals located across the country who book meetings held within the South, according to O’Connor.

Plano Centre Executive Chef Invited to Cook for The Masters

NEWS RELEASE

Plano Centre Executive Chef Invited to Cook for The Masters

Plano, TX (April 23, 2015) Plano Centre Executive Chef, Bismark Quintanilla, had the distinct privilege to cook at the 79th Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia April 6-12. Certified Executive Chef for the Augusta Country Club, Marvin Herrera, personally chose Bismark to be a part of his team for The Masters. Plano Centre’s Chef was mainly responsible for cooking for The Golf Channel lunches and dinners throughout the course of the tournament, as well as other lunches and dinners for Sports Australia, Fox Sports, the American Golf Association, and Japanese delegates.

Chef Quintanilla’s favorite dish he prepared was an appetizer called “Two Mustard Crab Salad” made with honey mustard and chipotle mustard served in a martini glass with two large potato chips.

“The experience reminded me how fortunate I am to have such a talented and hard-working kitchen staff at Plano Centre,” said Bismark. I’m very fortunate to have had this experience to cook with such talented chefs from across the country for such a prestigious event. Not only that, but I learned more about golf in one week in Augusta than I ever did in seven years at my previous job at a local country club.”
