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 its 2014 class of Readers’ Choice Award winners, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast was named.
“This honor recognizes the efforts of our sports facility managers and local governments to host quality events,” said Torye Hurst, Director of Sports Sales & Marketing for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Sports tourism has experienced tremendous growth nationally and this award confirms that the Mississippi Gulf Coast is rapidly becoming known as a youth sports destination. Any addition in sports facilities and hotel accommodations in the future will only enhance our efforts to attract larger tournaments with greater economic impact to the area.”
The Mississippi Gulf Coast received this award when sports event professionals were asked to name the sports commission, convention and visitors bureau, or sports event venues that they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalism toward the groups they host. Nominations were received from readers throughout the year, and top picks were selected based on the results from an online voting system.
“These award winners have gone above and beyond to provide the quality sports infrastructure, services, and commitment today’s discerning sports event planners demand,” said Kristen McIntosh, SportsEvents editor.
