By  | 

THE WOODLANDS, TX – Visit The Woodlands is honored to receive a ConventionSouth 2018 Readers’ Choice Award, a national multimedia resource for meeting and event planning in the South.

Visit The Woodlands is listed amongst the premier convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive Readers’ Choice Awards this year. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated sites were then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans voted for the best of the best. More than 7,000 voters participated in the online ballot process this year making it the most engaging year yet.

As four-time recipients of the Readers’ Choice Award since 2001, Visit The Woodlands will be featured in the Awards Issue of ConventionSouth in December of this year.

ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Visit The Woodlands has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Publisher J. Talty O’Connor. “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 Visit The Woodlands indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”

“Receiving the 2018 Readers’ Choice Award from ConventionSouth is such an honor and only verifies the level of service that Visit The Woodlands gives its meeting planners,” said Chairman of Visit The Woodlands, Bruce Rieser. “With more than 160,000 square feet of meeting and event space available Visit The Woodlands is prepared to continue to be a resource for top meeting planners in the nation.”

As four-time recipients of this award since 2001, Visit The Woodlands will be featured in the Awards Issue of ConventionSouth in December of this year. The issue features peer advice and tips from meeting professionals and happens to be one of the most popular resources in the meetings industry.
