The Sheraton Doha has received the Silver award for 'Best Conference & Convention Hotel" at the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) Travel Awards held during the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2007. "We have been continually enhancing our facilities and services at the hotel, reinforcing our commitment to providing our guests with the highest standards of service. The award for 'Best conference and convention Hotel' is, therefore, of great significance to us because it's recognition of the team's effort and tireless dedication,' said General Manager Gerhard Foltin. In addition to the hotel recent wins at the MENA, the Sheraton Doha has been voted for the sixth consecutive year Best Business Hotel in Doha during the Business Travel annual award ceremony. As a convention hotel, the Sheraton Doha has the largest and most comprehensively equipped facilities in the country, being the venue for a number of major conferences and events. It has the experience and capabilities to host gatherings of up to 3,000 persons in its 30 conference rooms and conference area of 8,000 sq: 27 meeting rooms from 25 to 230 seating capacity. Al Dafna Conference Hall (3000 persons). Al Majlis Auditorium (900 persons). Salwa Ballroom ( 600 persons). The Mena Travel Awards have been designed to recognise and reward superior services of outstanding organisations in the travel, tourism and hospitality sectors of the region whilst encouraging even higher standards and applauding the exceptional efforts made by many. These awards are decided purely on guest voting for the hotels they believe deserve the award. Guests are requested to vote for their first, second and third choices which makes the voting process very fair. The votes are then audited by Price WaterHouse Coopers.
