Whether groups are coming to town for a business meeting, a trade show, a wedding or other event, their attendees are sure to be delighted by the food offered at these cities.

Voters made their selections from an online ballot of over 50 cities located across 16 states in the U.S. South and the Caribbean. Cities made the ballot based on nominations from readers as well as each city’s reputation for hosting meetings, and having great food, great restaurants and great chefs. For the ballot, the cities were placed into four regional categories based on their state’s similar cooking and cuisine styles. The top three vote-getters from each region were then selected and named to ConventionSouth’s list of “The South’s Best Foodie Cities For Groups” and will be featured in the May 2014 issue of ConventionSouth magazine.
