The Owensboro Convention Center Wins the ConventionSouth Readers’ Choice Award for the Fourth Time Since Opening

Spectra, the providers of Venue Management to the Owensboro Convention Center, are honored to announce they have received the 2019 Readers’ Choice Award from ConventionSouth, the national multi-media resource for planning events in the South.

Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated meeting sites that provide exemplary service for group events. 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.

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 Senior Editor Marcia Bradford.  “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.”

“To be one of only 13 total winners in the state of Kentucky is truly an honor,” said Spectra’s Laura Alexander, General Manager of the Owensboro Convention Center.  “We pride ourselves on providing outstanding customer service to ALL of our guests and are excited to be recognized for those efforts.”

This is the fourth time that the Owensboro Convention Center has received the award since it opened in January 2014.  The Owensboro Convention Center will be featured as an award recipient in the December 2019 Awards Issue of ConventionSouth magazine.
