I would like to congratulate the Florence Civic Center on some recent awards they have received! The Facilities Media Group of New York has presented the facility with the 2014 Prime Site Award benchmarking the Center as an eleventh-year recipient. And as if that wasn’t already great the Civic Center has also been named on the 2015 list of The South’s 101 Largest Expo Halls by the editors of ConventionSouth magazine.
The Facilities Prime Site award is given to the top entertainment, sports and special event venues, including Arenas, Civic Centers, Coliseums, Auditoriums, Stadiums, Theaters, PACs, Amphitheaters, University Venues, Fairgrounds and Special Event Venues. It is voted on by booking agents, promoters, talent buyers and other industry members. Less than one hundred venues in North America were voted to receive the award for excellence.
The South’s 101 Largest Expo Halls list is comprised of convention and exhibition facilities from across 16 states in the South and the Caribbean Seas Region that offer meeting planners the largest amount of contiguous space under one roof, according to research by ConventionSouth’s editorial team. “These event facilities were ranked based on several factors and qualifications, including their location, facility type, ability to accommodate exhibitions and total contiguous event space. Their contiguous space, unlike continuous space, is available to groups through one or more adjoining or adjacent rooms that are not prohibited by fire walls and are located on one level and under one roof,” said ConventionSouth Editor Marlane Bundock.
This is not only good news for the Civic Center but also for our great town of Florence. Because as the Civic Center grows so does the number of visitors to Florence.
Well I’m off to go win my own awards for being awesome! If you want to read more about these awards visit http://ow.ly/AMT1u
