(January 27, 2014) – The publishers and editors of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resource for planning events in the South, recently named the Ocean City Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) with a 2013 Readers’ Choice Award. Nominated for providing exemplary service for group events, Ocean City is among 160 CVBs, meeting facilities and hotels located across the South to receive this year’s Readers’ Choice Award.
“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Ocean City Convention and Visitors Bureau 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 Ocean City Convention and Visitors Bureau indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”
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 are asked to vote for the best of the best. According to ConventionSouth , more than 6,500 voters participated this year in the election process, which was the highest vote count ever recorded.
“We are truly honored to receive ConventionSouth’s Annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said Convention Center Director Larry Noccolino. “We have always believed that we have one of the best Convention and Visitors Bureaus on the east coast, but it is very flattering to have the readers of ConventionSouth agree that we are one of the best.”
