SportsEvents Media Group, the leading industry publication focused exclusively on helping sports event planners produce excellent competitions in the United States, has announced that Destination Irvine in Irvine, CA has been recognized as a 2018 Readers’ Choice Award winner.

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 tenth year for the SportsEvents Readers’ Choice Award. More than 5,000 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, SportsEvents Magazine. “It is my honor to recognize Destination Irvine as a 2018 winner. Your dedication to youth and amateur sports and the creativity and passion your organization exhibits is a perfect example of excellence in the sports events industry.”

Award winning destinations and venues for youth and amateur sports will be honored in the January 2018 issue of SportsEvents Magazine.
