MACON, GA (October 30, 2023) — It is with great honor that the publishers of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resource for planning events in the South, present Visit Macon and Macon’s Anderson Conference Center each with a 2023 Readers’ Choice Award.
“ConventionSouth readers and fans have once again voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Visit Macon has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Associate Publisher Tiffany Burtnett. “This prestigious recognition comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South. These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have determined that Visit Macon indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity, and service that they require.”
Visit Macon and Anderson Conference Center are among 446 convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities, hotels, and unique venues located across the South to receive this year’s Readers’ Choice Award.
Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated sites are then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best. With over 8,000 voters participating in the selection process and the highest social media interaction to date, this has been the most successful and engaging year yet!
Visit Macon, the Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) of Macon+Bibb County, Georgia is proudly now a 5-time recipient of the award, however, we are thrilled to acknowledge Anderson Conference Center for their first year to be both nominated and awarded with 2023 Readers’ Choice Award!
