Shreveport-Bossier Convention & Tourist Bureau wins ConventionSouth’s Readers’ Choice award for fifth time

ConventionSouth awarded the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau a 2019 Readers’ Choice Award. Since creation in 2001, this is the fifth time that the Tourist Bureau has received the award from ConventionSouth. The publication is a national, multimedia resource for planning meetings and conventions in the South.

“It is an honor to receive ConventionSouth’s Readers’ Choice Award for the fifth time,” said Stacy Brown, president of the Tourist Bureau. “This award validates that our team continuously provides quality customer service and unparalleled hospitality to our visitors and meeting delegates.”

The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau is among top convention and tourist bureaus, meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive this year’s Readers’ Choice Award. The nominated sites were compiled into an online ballot where more than 7,000 meeting professionals voted for their preferred partners.

“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said Marcia Bradford, senior editor of ConventionSouth. “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 Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

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 in the South, according to Bradford.

The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2019 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 2020, our Awards Issue is one of the most popular must-read resources within the meetings industry,” Bradford said.
