Vote Meetings and Events

Every year, MN Meetings and Events Magazine hosts Best of Minnesota Awards. With over 80,000 voters participating, it has been our honor to be a part of these awards annually, and we owe it to our guests and fans.

The time of the year has come again, and we are asking you to visit the voting polls and vote Grand View Lodge where you see fit!

If you refer to past years, Grand View has been nominated for awards such as, Best Social Media, Best Venue Outside of Twin Cities Metro Area, Best Resort with Meeting Space, and Best Golf Venue, but we don’t want to stop there.  We would like to reach for awards such as Best Historic Venue celebrating our 100-year anniversary next year.

“Obtaining these awards means a lot to us because we know it come straight from the voter’s polls,” says general manager Mark Ronnei, “It means that people took time out of their day to recognize us, and that is a special kind of recognition.”

Previous winners also included Visit Brainerd who for the third consecutive year took home the Best Convention + Visitors Bureau award (Less than­­ 25,000 in Population). Visit Brainerd is the tourism bureau for Brainerd and Baxter and is known for its aggressive marketing of the lakes area and strong social media presence. “Visit Brainerd and its partners are committed to making every visit a successful and memorable one,” says Richard Polipnick, Executive Director. “We try to focus on the information travelers want and need and provide it to them through multiple platforms throughout the travel cycle.”

Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for other Brainerd Lakes Area nominees. On the polls you will see noteworthy organizations whom we work with directly such as Cuyuna Mountain Biking Trails, Destiny Cruises, and Nisswa Chamber of Commerce.

There are very few rules when it comes to voting; one vote per email address and voters must vote in at least 10 categories.  Reminder, you can also fill in the space at the top that has the . . . in it, with whichever venue you see best fit.
