Owensboro Convention Center Honored with Several Awards

global spectrum 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (11/18/13) - Global Spectrum, the management company of the Owensboro Convention Center, is pleased to announce that ConventionSouth magazine has awarded the Owensboro Convention Center with several industry awards and will be featured in the December awards issue.

Most recently, ConventionSouth awarded the Owensboro Convention Center with their “Top New or Renovated Meeting Site for 2014”, “Editor’s Hot Pick” and “Rising Destination for Meetings” awards.

“Winning these awards are a testament to our Global Spectrum team and all the hard work that goes into booking the facility and building name awareness,” Dean Dennis, Global Spectrum’s General Manager of the Owensboro Convention Center, said.

The Top New or Renovated Meeting Site for 2014 award, places the Owensboro Convention Center among an elite list of 50 meeting facilities located across the South.

“ConventionSouth readers are constantly seeking information on the newest and like-new meeting sites in the South in order to offer their attendees the most modern facilities available, and this is why we are honored to bestow Owensboro Convention Center with a Top New or Renovated Meeting Site Award,” ConventionSouth Associate Publisher Marlane Bundock, said.

ConventionSouth will also be announcing their 2014 list of the “Rising Destinations For Meetings” in the December issue. This year, five destinations were selected to be on the list, including Owensboro, Ky.; Fairfax County, Va.; Nashville, Tenn.; Pigeon Forge, Tenn.; and Spartanburg, S.C. The five places were selected by ConventionSouth’s editorial team based on research on hundreds of destinations across 16 states in the South. Editors selected the five destinations based on their increased and enhanced offerings as a travel destination for groups, meetings and events.

“Meeting Planners and event organizers from across the country look for new and exciting destinations in the South to hold their meetings and events, and ConventionSouth’s 2014 list of the ‘Rising Destinations For Meetings’ provides them with insight on the South’s most buzz-worthy,” Bundock said. “It’s a very elite list where we only accept up to 10 destinations a year and this year, narrowed the list to only five places. All destinations that made the list are enhancing their traveler experience with projects that specifically increase the level of appeal for groups and meeting planners. Owensboro has especially become a destination to watch within the meetings industry due to such assets as the beautiful new Owensboro Convention Center and new hotel options opening nearby.”

In addition to the awards mentioned above, ConventionSouth recently named Owensboro one of the Top Cities for Music and Meetings in the South for 2014 in their October issue. This inaugural list was comprised by ConventionSouth’s editorial team in order to showcase to meeting planners some of the best cities in the South to hold their events—all while experiencing a vibrant music scene. A total of 20 cities from 15 states in the U.S. South were selected.

In August of this year, ConventionSouth chose the Owensboro Convention Center for one of its 101 Largest Expo Halls in the South. The Owensboro Convention Center made the list at number 75.

“We are honored to have received all of these awards from such a superb publication,” Laura Alexander, Global Spectrum’s Sales and Marketing Director of the Owensboro Convention Center, said. “We are not even open yet, but have already started to receive numerous awards and accolades.”
