ConventionSouth, a national multimedia resource for planning conventions and events in the South, has awarded the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau a 2018 Readers’ Choice Award. Since creation in 2001, this is the fourth time that the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau has received the award.
“It is an honor to receive ConventionSouth’s Readers’ Choice Award for the fourth time,” said Stacy Brown, president of the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau. “We are committed to continuously providing quality customer service and unparalleled hospitality to each meeting delegate, convention planner, and visitor to Shreveport-Bossier.”
The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2018 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.
“The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South,” said J. Talty O’Connor, publisher for ConventionSouth. “These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have contributed in determining that the Shreveport- Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”
The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau is among 320 convention and tourist bureaus, 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 provided exemplary service for group events. The nominated sites are then compiled into an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best. With more than 7,000 voters participating in the selection process and the highest social media interaction to date, this has been the most successful and engaging year.
Celebrating over 35 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.
