Owensboro Convention Center Honored Again with Prestigious Award

OVG360, the provider of Venue Management to the Owensboro Convention Center, has again been recognized as a top destination for meetings and conventions by Facilities and Destinations magazine. This is the tenth time the venue has received the prestigious Prime Site Award which are given annually to the top convention and exposition centers in the United States.

Facilities and Destinations is a quarterly trade publication for the meetings and events industry.  Voting for the Prime Site Awards is done primarily by association and corporate meeting planners and tradeshow professionals.  The award recognizes that clients have determined that these venues and organizations are standouts in the highly competitive meetings market.  Prime Site Awards have been bestowed annually since 1994. 

“We are honored to receive our 10th Prime Site Award from Facilities and Destinations,” stated Owensboro Convention Center General Manager, Jeff Esposito. “This prestigious recognition is a testament to our hardworking staff’s unwavering dedication and exceptional teamwork.

“The Owensboro Convention Center continuously strives to exceed the expectations of every client,” said Tim Ross, Director of Public Events for the City of Owensboro.  “From the opening of the building almost 10 years ago, our goal was to be one of the best convention centers in the country.  Being recognized again with the Prime Site Award is a testament to the commitment to excellence by the tremendous staff and our partnership approach with every client hosting events at the facility.”

The Owensboro Convention Center will be featured as a Prime Site Award recipient in the upcoming 2023 Facilities and Destinations SuperBook issue publishing in late July.
