ConventionSouth Again Presents the Owensboro Convention Center with the Readers’ Choice Award

Spectra, the providers of Venue Management to the Owensboro Convention Center, are honored to announce they have received the 2020 Readers’ Choice Award from ConventionSouth, the national multi-media resource for planning events in the South.  This is the fifth time the venue has received this award.

Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated meeting sites that provide exemplary service for group events. Over 3,000 meeting destinations were nominated.  The nominated sites were then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best.

“We are extremely honored to be one of 14 hospitality organizations across the state of Kentucky to receive this award, and I am personally proud of our team at the Owensboro Convention Center for continuing to provide excellence service for our planners and their guests,” stated Spectra’s Laura Alexander, General Manager.

ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that the Owensboro Convention Center has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Associate Publisher, Ashleigh Osborne.  “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 the Owensboro Convention Center indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

The Owensboro Convention Center will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2020 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine.  A complete list of 2020 Award Winners can be found online at:
