Owensboro Convention Center Honored with ConventionSouth Readers’ Choice Award for Sixth Time

Spectra, the provider of Venue Management to the Owensboro Convention Center, honored to announce they have received the 2021 Readers’ Choice Award from ConventionSouth, the national multi-media resource for planning events in the South.
Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events, including convention centers, CVB’s, and hotels. The nominated sites are then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best. The Owensboro Convention Center was one of only 15 total winners throughout the entire state of Kentucky.
“Our team continues to strive for excellence and provides over-the-top customer service to our clients during a time when the world is changing at a very high pace,” said Spectra General Manager, Laura Alexander.  “They have maneuvered through government restrictions and provided new, innovative solutions to problems that have never been presented in our industry, and have excelled.  I couldn’t be more proud of the dedication and perseverance of the Owensboro Convention Center team.”
“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that 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 Owensboro Convention Center indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”
Since creation in 2001, this is the sixth time that Owensboro Convention Center has received the award, and the venue will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2021 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine.
