GULF SHORES, Ala.—SportsEvents Media Group, the leading industry publication focused exclusively on helping sports event planners produce excellent competitions in the United States and Canada, has announced the Tampa Bay Sports Commission as one of its 2013 Readers’ Choice Award winners.
In 2012, the TBSC generated over 130,000 room nights across 114 events. As a result, those events impacted the Tampa Bay economy with over $100 million dollars of direct visitor spending.
The TBSC earned the honor as event professionals were asked to name the sports commissions, convention and visitors bureaus, or sports events venues that they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalism toward the groups they host. Nominations were received from readers throughout the year, and the top picks were selected based on the results from an online voting system.
“Due to the power of social media and online voting capabilities, we received an overwhelming response from readers this year, which allowed SportsEvents to honor the destinations and their sports venues—and the marketing organizations that represent them—with a 2013 Readers’ Choice Award,” said Kristen McIntosh, SportsEvents editor. “These award winners have proven they are willing to go above and beyond the normal service levels expected by providing both the physical attributes and commitment to hospitality and service that today’s discriminating sports event planners demand. It is an honor to announce their selection by sports event planners as some of the best in the United States.”
SportsEvents Media Group, publisher of SportsEvents magazine, is the industry leader in providing products and services designed to connect sports events organizers with sports commissions, CVBs, hotels, insurance companies and other sports events industry suppliers.
