Palm Beach County Sports Commission awarded the 2012 Readers’ Choice Award

West Palm Beach, FL-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 Palm Beach County Sports Commission (PBCSC) as a recipient of the 2012 Readers’ Choice Award.

Sports event professionals were asked to name the sports commission, 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 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 more than 100 destinations and venues—and the marketing organizations that represent them—with a 2012 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.”

“We are honored to be recognized by SportsEvents Media Group and sports event professionals as a leading Sports Commission in the United States,” said Michael Brady, President of the Palm Beach County Sports Commission. “We strive to provide the best and most comprehensive service to event organizers and being recognized with this award validates the strong team we have here at the Sports Commission.

Palm Beach County Sports Commission will be recognized in the next edition of the SportsEvents magazine that will be available at the end of January.
