Nearly 600 people gathered at the Doubletree Hotel and Conference Center to reflect on the local business community's shining lights in an event keynoted by John McDonough, president of the Chicago Blackhawks and featuring hockey legend Bobby Hull. Also honored with a 2010 Business Excellence Award were Luther Oaks, recipient of the Pantagraph Non-profit Agency Excellence Award; the Hile Group, who took home the Snyder Companies Micro Business Excellence Award; and Bloomington Offset Printing, Inc. (BOPI), winner of the Corn Belt Energy Green Business Excellence Award. The NICOR Small Business Excellence Award went to the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites and Commerce Bank was honored with the Frontier Communications Large Business Excellence Award.
Recipient of the 2010 NICOR Small Business Excellence Award, the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites has only been in McLean County for three years. In that short period of time, it has managed to stand out, not only excellence of service, but also in commitment to the community. The Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites has been regularly recognized for excellence in service, not only by its parent company, the Intercontinental Hotels Group, but by the Bloomington-
Normal Area Convention and Visitors Bureau as well. Crystal Howard, Director of the CVB said “The Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites exemplifies what the convention and visitors bureau would like to have our visitors experience. Their atmosphere, their service, their personal attention -- they are all contributing to the success, not only of the hotel, but of the community.”
More information on this award can be seen in the Chamber of Commerce Annual Report Issue which is available upon request through the Mclean County Chamber of Commerce.
