The Ann Arbor Sports Commission has been selected by SportsEvents Media Group, a leading industry publication focused exclusively on helping sports event planners, as a 2019 Readers’ Choice Award winner.
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.
“The destinations and venues nominated for this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards are outstanding examples of how sports commissions and CVBs provide exemplary service to youth and amateur sporting events,” said Sherri Middleton, Managing Editor.
“It is my honor to recognize Ann Arbor Sports Commission as a 2019 Destination winner,” Middleton said.
Nominations were received from readers beginning in early September and the top picks were selected based on results from an online voting system. A record number of votes were cast for the annual contest. More than 1,000 votes were recorded as planners and industry suppliers participated in the survey to help create a list of the winners.
