The Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau has earned the esteemed Gold Service award for 2015 from Meetings & Conventions Magazine.

The award honors the top tourism boards domestically and internationally servicing meeting professionals.

Terryl Vencl, executive director of the Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau responded to the news saying the MVCB, “share(s) this recognition with our Maui Nui partners, who continue to deliver extraordinary Maui experiences.”

Readers of M&C awarded 81 domestic and 16 international convention bureaus and tourism boards with the Gold Service award distinction.

The selections were based on key criteria including: professionalism of staff; support on hotels and site inspections; assistance with ground transportation planning; guidance on local attractions; and liaison with local vendors and services.


Meetings & Conventions is a division of NORTHSTAR Travel Media LLC publishers.  “To continually provide quality service to clients sets these superior bureaus apart,” said David Blansfield, executive vice president/group publisher, Northstar Meeting Group.


“All our Gold Service winning CVBs know the value of creating a lasting impression can never be understated,” he said.  “The 2015 Gold Service winners continually excel in many valuable areas of service, impressing not only their clients but also the demanding readers of M&C,” said Blansfield.

Winners will be featured in Meetings & Conventions’ Gold Awards issue that will be published in November.

The Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau is a subsidiary of the Hawaiʻi Visitors and Convention Bureau, which is contracted by the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority for marketing management services.


The islands of Maui Nui offer very distinct Hawaiian experiences.  Industry executives say, “world-class resorts, award-winning cuisine, championship golf, natural beauty and the islands’ host Hawaiian culture have propelled Maui Nui into the limelight.”
