 The Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission received one of four Kentucky Readers’ Choice Awards from SportsEvents Media Group.

Sports event professionals were asked to name sports commissions, convention and visitors bureaus, and sports venues that provide creativity and professionalism. Nominations were accepted throughout 2013, and the top choices were based on online voting.

Lebanon’s tourism commission was the smallest organization to be recognized in Kentucky. The other Bluegrass State winners are the Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Greater Louisville Sports Commission and the Northern Kentucky Convention and Visitors Bureau.

“With the hosting of Warrior Dash, Color in Motion, The Farmer’s National Bank Tennis Open, plus the many other events held annually at our recently expanded Graham Memorial Park, we are proud to be alongside the big dogs of Louisville, Lexington and Northern Kentucky when it comes to providing quality sports infrastructure and the services and commitment today’s discerning sports event planners demand.” said Carla Wagner, Lebanon’s tourism director.

SportsEvents Media Group, publisher of SportsEvents magazine, provides products and services to connect sports events organizers with sports commissions, CVBs, hotels, insurance companies and other sports events industry suppliers.
