Panama City Beach, Fla. (July 23, 2008) – Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort has recently been voted as one of the best meeting facilities in the Southern United States for 2008 by the readership of Meetings South magazine. This acclaimed distinction is regarded as a great achievement since the voting readers make up most of the top national meeting planners. The prestigious “Best of the South” awards will be published in the September issue of the trade’s premier magazine.

“We are thrilled to be recognized for our facilities, value and customer service with such an impressive award,” said Paul Wohlford, vice president of sales and marketing for The Resort Collection of Panama City Beach, which manages Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort. “Our 32,000-square-foot state-of-the-art conference facility offers meeting planners great flexibility as well as a beautiful backdrop for their groups to enjoy. In addition, I think our corporate climate of customer service and attitude towards excellence made favorable impressions with the meeting planners who voted, giving us an edge over our competitors.”
