SEVIERVILLE — The publishers and editors of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resource for planning events in the South, recently presented Sevierville Convention Center with a 2016 Readers’ Choice Award.

“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Sevierville Convention Center has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Publisher J. Talty O’Connor. “The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South. These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have contributed in determining that Sevierville Convention Center indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

Sevierville Convention Center is among 250 convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive this year’s Readers’ Choice Award. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated sites are then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best. More than 4,000 voters participated in the selection process.

Since creation in 2001, this is the first time that Sevierville Convention Center has received the award. The Center will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2016 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine. This issue will also showcase some of the most talented meeting professionals in the nation as ConventionSouth also presents planners with its annual “Meeting Professionals To Watch” designation. “Featuring peer advice and trade secrets from our Meeting Professionals to Watch in 2016, our Awards Issue is one of the most popular must read resources within the meetings industry,” O’Connor said.

Celebrating over 30 years as a leading meeting planning resource, ConventionSouth magazine is based in Gulf Shores, Ala. and is distributed to more than 18,000 meeting professionals located across the country who book meetings held within the South, according to O’Connor.
