SportsEvents Announces the 2019 Readers' Choice Award Winners for Destinations

GULF SHORES, Ala. (Nov. 13, 2018) —SportsEvents Media Group, the leading industry publication focused exclusively on helping sports event planners produce excellent competitions in the United States, has announced the 2019 Readers’ Choice Award winners. These award-winning destinations and venues for youth and amateur sports will be honored in the January 2019 issue of SportsEvents Magazine.

Sports event professionals were asked to nominate destinations and sports venues that they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalism toward the youth and amateur sports groups they host. Nominations were received from readers throughout the year, and the top picks were selected based on results from an online voting system.

This is the eleventh year for the SportsEvents Readers’ Choice Awards. More than 1,000 votes were recorded as planners and industry suppliers participated in the survey to help create a list of the winners.  “The destinations and venues nominated for this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards are outstanding examples of how sports commissions, CVBs and tourism departments diligently work to provide best-in-class service to the youth and amateur organizations and tournaments they host,” said Sherri Middleton, Managing Editor.

“It is my honor to recognize these organizations as our 2019 winners. Their dedication to youth and amateur sports and the creativity and passion these organizations
 exhibit is a perfect example of excellence in the sports events industry,” Middleton said.
