TOURISM Santa Fe was honored as one of the best destinations in the United States in Smart Meetings magazine’s 2022 Platinum Choice Awards, “Reader’s Choice” section.  This annual meetings industry award, now in its 20th year, recognizes the best cities and meeting venues as nominated by meeting planner readers of the publication.

“The Smart Meetings Platinum Choice Award is an incredibly meaningful honor for our team at TOURISM Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, as it comes directly from industry professionals who have experienced the exceptional service our team provides,” said Randy Randall, executive director of TOURISM Santa Fe. “Having Santa Fe on this annual list highlights that we are one of the best cities for groups to host their meetings in and it will encourage more meeting planners to bring business to The City Different.”

Each year, Smart Meetings asks their readers to share the hotels, venues and destinations in the United States and abroad that have made a significant impact on their work of planning meetings and conferences.  The full list of 2022 Platinum Choice Awards winners will be published in the December 2022 print issue of the magazine and can be found online at
