KANKAKEE COUNTY, January 24, 2013 – The Kankakee County Convention and Visitors Bureau won a Reader’s Choice award from SportsEvents Media Group. SportsEvents Media Group is a leading industry publication focused exclusively on helping sports event planners produce excellent competitions in the United States and Canada. 

Sports event professionals were asked to name the sports commission, convention and visitors bureaus, or sports events venues that they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalism toward the groups they host. Nominations were received from readers throughout the year, and the top picks were selected based on the results from an online voting system. 

Kristen McIntosh, SportsEvents editor, says “These award winners have proven they are willing to go above and beyond the normal service levels expected by providing both the physical attributes and commitment to hospitality and service that today’s discriminating sports event planners demand. It is an honor to announce their selection by sports event planners as some of the best in the United States.” 

The Kankakee County Convention & Visitors Bureau is proud to bring this honor home to Kankakee County for a second time. The Kankakee County Convention & Visitors Bureau previously won the 2011 Destinations to Watch Award.
