The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort Is Honored With ConventionSouth’s Annual Readers’
Choice Award

GULF SHORES, Ala. (Oct. 19, 2016)—It is with honor that the publishers and editors of ConventionSouth, the
national multimedia resource for planning events in the South, present The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort with a
2016 Readers’ Choice Award.

“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to
us that The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort has 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 The King and Prince Beach &
Golf Resort indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort is among 250 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.
With over 4,000 voters participating in the selection process and the highest social media interaction to date, this has
been the most successful and engaging year yet!

Since creation in 2001, this is the ninth time that The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort has received the award,
making it an even greater honor to present it with a 2016 Readers’ Choice Award. The King and Prince Beach & Golf
Resort will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2016 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 2016, 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. A complete list of award winners can be found online here.

Why Our Georgia Resort For Your Meeting?

Delegal Meeting Room on St. Simons Island

Meeting planners have a large list to check off when choosing a resort to host a meeting or conference. Usually, the most important factors on their list are cost, location, Wi-Fi/Internet access, meeting room capacity and number of hotel rooms. Our oceanfront Georgia resort is able to meet the needs of not only the meeting planners, but attendees as well.

Our historic resort has hosted thousands of meetings and convention through the years. We have accommodated groups ranging in size from 5 to 400 and the types of groups and conferences we host cover everything from church groups to state and government meetings, association conferences and company retreats.

We know what is important to meeting planners, so here are just a few reasons to book your next group or conference with us!

Cost- With hotel rooms ranging from a standard room with a queen bed all the way to a 5 bedroom home (and everything in between) we are able to offer hotel rooms at many different price points for our guests. Our sales managers are also wonderful at their jobs and can help you find the dates that will meet your price range.

Location- We are an hour from Jacksonville International Airport and an hour and a half from Savannah/Hilton Head Airport. Brunswick Golden Isles Airport also has flights daily from Atlanta and it is a great option, as the airport is just minutes from the resort. Along with several airports close by, we are also 20 minutes from I-95 which makes us easily accessible from anywhere!

Wi-Fi and Amenities- Internet access is very important to our business travelers and for that reason, we offer complimentary wireless Internet across the resort….and even on the beach in front of the resort! We also have a business center with printers for those last minute printing needs. ECHO is our onsite bar and restaurant and it is a great place to meet with friends or co-workers after a day of meetings. Looking for live music? Just take the elevator down to ECHO where we offer live music throughout the year! Need to relax? Step outside to 4 oceanfront pools or go for a jog on the beach in front of the resort. There is also an 18 hole golf course at the north end of St. Simons Island that is owned and operated by the resort.
