Atlantic City, N.J., has had a fantastic year, especially with regards to sports, and they are now reaping the awards of their hard work.

SportsEvents Media Group—an industry publication that focuses on providing support to sports event planners producing competitions across the country—announced Meet AC and the Atlantic City Sports Commission as one of its 2016 Readers’ Choice Award winners.

Readers nominated destinations and sports venues they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalism with regards to the groups they host. The magazine received nominations throughout the year; top picks were selected based on results from an online voting system.

SportsEvents readers came out in force to nominate and then to vote for their favorite sports events destinations and the host organizations that represent them,” says Carrie O’Connor, the magazine’s editorial coordinator. “Our team is proud to honor the nominees that received the most votes with a 2016 Readers’ Choice Award.”

Winners will be announced in the January 2016 issue of the magazine.

“It is clear, based on our readers’ experiences, that these awards winners are willing to go above and beyond typical service levels to help sports event planners produce outstanding events that participants, their families and spectators will want to experience again and again,” says O’Connor. “It is our privilege to announce their selection by sports events planners as among the best in the United States.”

The Austin Marriott Downtown is raising a glass to the completion of its structural framework, literally. Instead of raising the “final beam,” the hotel held a “topping-off” event where guests watched a large crane raise three Garrison Brothers bourbon barrels onto the hotel’s rooftop, in collaboration with local spirit masters Garrison Brothers Distillery.

 

HALL Arts Residences has recently announced that this December, the Dallas art-focused hotel will allow guests to explore five beautifully art-filled indoor and outdoor spaces. 

 

The Majestic and Empire Theaters downtown San Antonio have announced a variety of upcoming entertainment experiences including theatrical performances, concerts, comedians and other live events.
