The Owensboro Convention Center is an Eight Time Facilities and Destinations Prime Site Award Winner

Spectra, the providers of Venue Management to the Owensboro Convention Center, is proud to announce they have again received the Prime Site Award presented by Facilities and Destinations magazine.  This is the eighth time the venue has been a recipient of this prestigious 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. 

Given the unusual circumstances of last year, nominations were based upon:

  1. Experience working with the venue prior to March 2020; and/or
  2. The venue’s implementation of COVID safety measures and service to the community during these challenging times.

“The team at the Owensboro Convention Center continues to focus on the safety of our attendees and putting our client’s needs first when hosting an event,” stated Laura Alexander, General Manager with Spectra Venue Management at the Owensboro Convention Center. “We have embraced the mentality of becoming part of the planner’s organizational team and reaching the goals they have for the event versus a simple vendor/vendee relationship.”

The Owensboro Convention Center will be featured as a Prime Site Award recipient in the upcoming 2021 Facilities and Destinations SuperBook issue publishing in late July.
